Building Associates is proud to be a Duro-Last Master Contractor and has been installing Duro-Last roofing since 1985. Duro-Last is a single-ply membrane roof, unlike any other single-ply roofing system.
Durability = True Performance
- The unique formulation of Duro-Last Roofing Systems delivers long-term value and peace of mind.
- Duro-Last membranes feature an anti-wicking polyester weft-inserted scrim with a density of either 14 x 18 or 14 x 9 threads-per-inch – among the highest in the industry. Duro-Last's scrim features a third tie yarn to prevent runs and doesn't allow tears to spread, ensuring superior strength and puncture resistance.
- Duro-Last's thickness over scrim – also known as the “performance layer” – is thick, making the membranes extra durable. This means that Duro-Last Roofing Systems provide protection where your building needs it most: the exposed surface of the membrane.
Using patented processes under ideal factory conditions, Duro-Last is a completely custom prefabricated roofing system that minimizes on-site labor, is a proven performer, and includes warranties that provide unequaled reliability. Duro-Last's custom prefabrication results in deck sheets up to 2,500 square feet that fit every roof exactly.
I. The Custom-Fabrication Advantage
II. Through Duro-Last’s custom-fabricated roofing system, up to 85% of the seams can be completed in their factory-controlled environment. This helps to dramatically reduce labor time on your roof and the on-site fabrication that can lead to roof leaks.
The custom-fabricated, single-ply PVC Duro-Last commercial roofing system is ideal for any flat or low-sloped application. Extremely durable and easily installed by our authorized rooftop crew without disrupting your building’s operations, the Duro-Last Roofing System is also watertight, highly reflective, resistant to chemicals, fire and high winds, as well as low maintenance.
Duro-Last membrane options include:
The Duro-Last roofing system is virtually maintenance-free; resistant to fire, chemicals, and high winds; and provides enviable energy efficiency
By reflecting up to 88% of the sun’s energy, the white Duro-Last Membrane can greatly reduce energy costs, making Duro-Last the ideal cool roof option. With a total solar emittance of up to 87%, this ENERGY STAR® qualified membrane also releases energy and heat efficiently.

Building Associates consistently goes above and beyond for their customers, exceeding expectations with integrity and pride. We are proud to work with such a professional team and are excited to see what they accomplish in the next year.”
They were wonderful. They were very easy to deal with. When I saw something I didn’t like, they’d come right back out and fix it. It was easy. It wasn’t frustrating or anything. They’re friendly and reasonably priced. We priced several people and they came in lower than anybody else and we got more for the same price.
We appreciated the way Building Associates carefully and thoroughly worked though the design and layout details upfront until we were satisfied. They answered our many questions quickly. We felt the project got better as we continued worked through different configurations and saw the updated CAD drawings. They also gave us detailed estimates, which helped us determine our priorities for where to spend money. Their builders were friendly and responsive. They also limited the number of subcontractors, which made small changes during the build-out easier. We would work with Building Associates again.
Remodeling projects can be overwhelming, and the hope is that one's General Contractor will ensure that the construction runs smoothly and at peak. For our remodeling projects, which were both ambitious and extensive in scope, we had the pleasure to work with Fred Bay of Building Associates. Fred is the consummate professional. He was accurate in his initial assessment of the scale and cost of our projects. He was clear in the record keeping. And, most importantly, he chose and managed excellent subcontractors, from framers and masons, to painters and drywall and floor people.
What we appreciated most about Fred was his willingness to listen to our comments and suggestions, and his ability to react to the resulting changes as the project went on. Quality work takes time to complete, and patience is required when the project is as complex as ours was. We believe we could not have done better than with Fred Bay and Building Associates.
These are the reasons why we will hire Fred for the third and final remodeling phase, which we hope will be done ASAP. Cheers!
Exceeding expectations–it’s hard to find companies that do that these days. In completing the renovation of the porch and facade of our Lincoln Street Club this past winter, Building Associates Inc. completed the job on time, within budget, and communicated thoroughly throughout the entire project. The finished product was absolutely beautiful! Their pride in workmanship was clearly evident with an attention to detail that was second to none. We wholeheartedly endorse Building Associates, Inc.!
