Duro-Last Roofing Inc., Saginaw, Mich., offers a new 12-page, full-color brochure called “How to Turn Your Roof ‘Green’ and Save a Mint on Energy Costs.” The publication provides building owners and roofing contractors with a detailed analysis of the cool roofing/hot building issue. Information about the company’s Duro-Last Cool Zone™ cool roofing system offers readers a cost-effective solution for reducing facility energy costs by as much as 40 percent. The roofing system has more than 86 percent retained reflectivity after three years of weathering, based on the Energy Star Roof Products testing procedures. The brochure also details the programs in place for addressing the hot building issue, from federal mandates to state energy incentives and cool roofing rebates.
