There is a wide range of factors to take into consideration when choosing your commercial roof. Cost, quality, and durability are all key elements to be taken into account. One of the most important considerations you might have overlooked is LEED certification. LEED certification stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design and is a certification program sponsored by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC).
The program is aimed at assessing buildings for energy efficiency based on environmental considerations from building materials to responsible land usage. At A Plus Roofing in Minnesota, we understand the importance of meeting LEED requirements. We offer Duro-Last roofs to help your commercial building meet LEED certification.
Duro-Last Commercial Roof Membranes
At A-Plus Roofing, we are proud to provide Duro-Last commercial roofing membranes. Duro-Last stands out among other commercial flat roofs because it offers a different and innovative approach. Duro-Last offers pre-fabricated roof membranes, which means that the possibility of errors during installation is automatically minimized.
Duro-Last roofs are energy efficient, which means they reduce the cost of heating and cooling throughout the year by reflecting heat during the summer and preserving it in cool months. Combined with Duro-Last’s lasting durability, this produces one of the most environmentally friendly roofing options available.
How Duro-Last Helps You Meet LEED Requirements
LEED certifies buildings, not products. However, certain products can help boost your LEED rating, and Duro-Last offers one of the best commercial roofing products when it comes to your LEED rating.
Here are just a few ways it increases your LEED rating:
● Solar Reflective Index - The Duro-Last Solar Reflective Index is 110, far exceeding the Energy Star rating requirement of 78.
● Increased Longevity - Duro-Last roofing membranes significantly extend the life cycle of an existing structure.
● Reduced Heating and Cooling Needs - Because Duro-Last helps to regulate the ambient temperature inside a building, expect its occupants to rely less heavily on air conditioners and portable heaters.
