Bourdeau Contracting

Commercial and Industrial Roofing Contractor

Your Elite Duro-Last® Contractor in St. Charles, MO

Bourdeau Contracting LLC is an elite certified contractor of Duro-Last® roofing systems in St. Charles, MO, as well as St. Louis, Kansas City, and throughout Missouri. Duro-Last® began in 1978 with the simple need to find a roofing system that worked. Existing roofing systems presented a common problem—they required ongoing maintenance and continual expense, with no long-term solution in sight. The company’s founder, John R. Burt, used his experience in fabricating pool liners to develop a remarkable new commercial roofing membrane. Two years of additional testing resulted in the proprietary membrane formula still in use today, after more than 30 years. Duro-Last roofing systems are ideal for commercial and industrial buildings.

Why Is Duro-Last® Roofing Better Than Other Systems?

The Duro-Last® vinyl roof membrane is a proprietary thermoplastic formulation consisting of PVC resins, plasticizers, stabilizers, biocides, flame retardants, and UV absorbents. A weft-insertion knitted scrim that is laminated between two layers of PVC film gives the membrane its strength and durability. The Duro-Last® single-ply membrane is available in white, gray, dark gray, tan, or terra cotta.  As an elite contractor for the Durolast brand, we can ensure your new roof is installed correctly and effectively protects your building.

Why Use A Prefabricated Roofing System?

For building owners and managers, Duro-Last’s custom fabrication of single-ply roofing systems offers several advantages:

  • Studies of roof failures show that most problems occur because of installation errors, particularly at changes in plane on the roof, such as projections, curbs, drains, perimeters, and abutting walls. Duro-Last prefabrication eliminates up to 85% of on-site, rooftop membrane seaming, significantly reducing the likelihood of installation errors and leak problems in the future.
  • Prefabricated roofing systems are easier to install throughout the year, even during adverse weather conditions. Installation time is reduced so the contractor can get on and off the job quickly. The relatively small amount of roof membrane seaming done in the field is completed with hot-air welding methods, which are virtually unaffected by cold or damp weather conditions.
  • Single-ply roofing prefabrication dramatically reduces waste, both during the manufacturing process and installation. The roofing contractor orders the exact amount of roof membrane necessary for roof coverage, rather than a collection of raw materials.
  • Prefabrication also appeals to engineers and architects who would like to address a particular structural or aesthetic design problem. Panel sizes, shapes, and colors can be pre-planned and prefabricated to achieve desired visual results.

Finally, prefabrication allows the roofing contractor to take control of a construction operation in a highly unstable environment. Roofing contractors must plan their roofing projects carefully and are rewarded with greater worker productivity, a higher-quality installation, and more satisfied customers.
