Fri, Jun 13, 2014 @ 12:43 PM | Exterior Pro Roofing

Sometimes calls come in about modular homes; some have metal roofs, shingles or the commonly used tin roofs and these homes can have leaking issues just as any other building. There are many changes through the years that have brought the different roofs used on modular homes and they have been limited to what they can do because of how the home is built but there is another option besides tin and what some have being shingles and that is Duro Last.

One option that many probably already know that can be done for tin roofs or other types of metal modular homes have is to do coatings. Coatings can help with storm damage, leaking metal roofs and rusting. There are many different brand of coatings and different formulas that a roofing contractor can assist you on what is best for your metal roof. This of course is only a temporary fix as the roof is exposed to the elements and metal roofs especially expand and contract which can affect the seals and coating, so what about another option of a new roofing system?

Because of the design of the roofs on modular homes Duro Last is a perfect fit to anyone tired of tin or other metal. Even for those that have shingles can still look at Duro Last being another option. The single-ply membrane is intended for low slope and flat roofs just like modular homes have.
