There are several factors that go into determining how a new roof will perform after installation and how long it will remain watertight. Certainly, the quality of the roofing materials used is important. However, according to the National Roofing Contractors Association most rooftop problems are caused by installation workmanship, not material failure. This is particularly true with complex installations that may involve many penetrations and other rooftop transitions.
Your roofing system is the most critical part of your building when it comes to watertight protection, and you should make sure to hire a contractor who can be trusted to install the system correctly and stand behind the quality of their work.
Many roofing manufacturers have implemented a quality rating system to ensure that the contractors installing their roofing systems are proficient. Duro-Last’s quality recognition programs are intended to give building owners/facility managers confidence that the roofing system will be installed to high-quality standards.
Duro-Last’s Master and Elite Contractor programs have been in place for many years and beginning in 2014, the Platinum level was added. The Platinum level was created by Duro-Last to recognize contractors that annually install high volumes of square footage and consistently receive excellent ratings for installation quality. Fewer than 2% of all authorized Duro-Last contractors have reached the Platinum level.
Royalty is proud to announce that we achieved Duro-Last Platinum status for 2014. We are committed to ensuring customer satisfaction in 2015 and beyond through the quality of our installations and our commitment to stand behind our workmanship. If the roof on your commercial building is in need of repair or replacement, we hope you will consider Royalty for the job.
