Seeing an opportunity to improve energy efficiency and waterproofing, Crothersville contracted Royalty Roofing to install a sustainable and circular roofing system from Duro-Last. For Royalty Roofing President Andy Royalty and Vice President Darrell Couch, it was a homecoming of sorts – it’s where the two graduated high school.
Royalty removed the old roofing layers down to the existing poly iso board and the material was sent to Duro-Last for recycling. ‘Recycle Your Roof’ is a program where Duro-Last takes back mechanically-attached PVC roofs at the end of their useful life and reprocesses the material into a variety of new, complementary roofing accessories, and commercial and industrial flooring materials.
The new solar-enabling roofing system includes Duro-Last Membrane and Duro-Guard®, Duro-Last’s comprehensive and best-selling range of thermal roofing insulation systems to improve energy and heat loss. The old roof had areas of ponding water, so more drains were added to get water off the roof and away from the solar panels.
