Being eco friendly is very important to us. We strive to be the best when it comes to being green and environmentally conscious."

Contributing to LEED certification.

The LEED™ (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) green building rating systems are a set of voluntary, consensus-based national standards for rating and certification of the performance of buildings with regard to energy and water conservation, impact on the environment, indoor environmental quality, and conservation of resources.

We live in a world where there is a great demand for energy saving products. TIOCOAT™ can help in obtaining valuable LEED™ certification for buildings. The Canadian Green Building Council has developed the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED™) rating system to help in the design and construction of buildings that minimize negative impact on occupants and the environment.

LEED™ certification is becoming an increasingly important consideration throughout the building and construction industry, as more attention is being focused on sustainable building technology. Our team at DuROCK is renowned for innovation and high-quality construction products, we are constantly investing in our research and development facility to provide products that are focused on the sustainability of our environment.

SS Credit 7.2: Heat Island Reduction: Roof (1 point)

INTENT: To reduce heat islands (thermal gradient differences between developed and undeveloped areas) to minimize impacts on micro climates and human and wildlife habitat.

A Green investment.

  • Longer roof life, better durability - coatings protect the roof substrate from destructive UV.
  • Reduced maintenance costs over the life of the roof; and coatings can provide the added bonus of being a water-resistant barrier.
  • Better budget management due to predictable life extension of the roof. The opportunity to re-coat the roof rather than replace it.
  • Minimal disruption to the occupants, operations during application, construction process, saving money in areas other than the roofing materials and application itself.
  • A more desirable and comfortable work environment inside the building.
  • Energy credits, tax savings and rebates available.
