Commercial Roofing

Commercial and Industrial Flat Roof Specialist for Lexington Kentucky and the surrounding areas.

The marriage between Duro-Last, the world’s leading commercial roof manufacturer, and Jacob’s Ladder, Central KY’s #1 installation team, has truly been a match made in heaven.

Both of these companies implement an unprecedented array of logistical techniques that go far above and beyond any competitor in their respective market sectors.

Duro-Last has initiated the industry’s first Duro-Last® Roof Recycling Program in order to recycle Duro-Last, Duro-Tuff®, Duro-Last Designer Series and Duro-Last EV membranes that are mechanically fastened only.

By enabling any contractor to send all of these components of an old, worn out roof back to them, Duro-Last set a new modern standard for commercial roofing manufacturers to strive toward instilling sustainability into their operations while simultaneously increasing the bottom line for their customers as well as their own enterprise.

As if these weren’t enough, Duro-Last takes their sustainability initiative to another level with the Cool Zone® roofing system. Among the commercial roofing industry, solar reflectivity that induces cool roofing has been a pivotal factor for years. The implementation of the Duro-Last® Cool Zone® roofing system has raised the standard for single-ply roofs’ solar reflectivity which enables unrivaled energy savings.

In order to create sustainability within roofing manufacturing, the design, maintenance, life-span, and recyclability of roofing components must help meet the long-term environmental demands of modernized buildings.

With affiliations such as the National Roofing Contractors Association and the Better Business Bureau, the strong reputation of Jacob’s Ladder creates the perfect duo of manufacturer-to-contractor.

As Duro-Last has set the leading standard for sustainability, any outfit that strives to reach this bar must effectuate the Five E’s of high-performance roofing: Energy, Environment, Endurance, Economics, and Engineering. At no surprise, the Duro-Last Cool Zone® roofing system continues to command the lead throughout the commercial roofing industry.

These examples of Duro-Last instilling a broad spectrum of unique industry-leading initiatives can also be translated into the operations of Jacob’s Ladder. The JL team leads the field in their capacity to execute ANY job among the broad range of commercial buildings’ needs from installations to disaster recovery and everything in between.
