Saginaw, Michigan – July 19, 2011 – Duro-Last Roofing®, Inc., a national manufacturer of thermoplastic commercial roofing systems, announced that the company has been endorsed by Hilton Worldwide International Inc.

Duro-Last’s custom-prefabricated, reinforced single-ply roofing system provides a quality-assured product manufactured in a controlled factory environment, a process that eliminates up to 85% of rooftop seaming.

The highly-reflective white membrane delivers real energy cost savings for building owners and managers.
