A Proven History
During the 1970’s, drastically hiked price of crude oil drove up the cost of roofing. Roofing professionals responded by seeking out alternatives to asphalt based systems like coal-tar pitch, B.U.R and modified bitumen.
By 1984 a single-ply, synthetic rubber roofing membrane called, EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer), was broadly acknowledged as a viable alternative to the asphalt based system. This membrane would later serve as the crux for the superior roof system designed and engineered by Thomas J. Preston Jr. and his son, Thomas J. Preston III.
Today, EPDM continues to outperform all other roofing membranes. The most recent data provided by the SKZ study supports an average life expectancy of more than 50 years.
In additional to providing a superior quality membrane, and unlike most roofing contractors that will offer to install any product on the market, our crewmen have been trained in one application, Dura-Ply’s, DRI Roof™. This philosophy provides great uniformity in workmanship and ensures the best possible job for you. Dura-Ply provided craftsmanship that is hard to compare.
