    A+ Investments! Energy Efficient Roofing for Michigan Schools Blog Cover

    Michigan schools are the cornerstones of our communities, fostering knowledge and igniting young minds. Here at Great Lakes Roofing, we understand the importance of creating a safe and sustainable learning environment for our future generations. That’s why we’re proud to partner with Northern Michigan’s schools to deliver energy-efficient roofing solutions that benefit students, teachers, and taxpayers alike, ensuring the longevity and efficiency of Michigan school roofing.

    The Challenge: Rising Energy Costs & Aging Infrastructure

    Many Michigan schools grapple with aging roofs in need of replacement. These roofs can be a significant source of energy loss, driving up cooling and heating costs. According to the Department of Energy, schools can waste up to 30% of their energy due to inefficient building envelopes, including roofs.

    The Solution: Duro-Last Energy-Efficient Roofing

    At Great Lakes Roofing, we recommend Duro-Last roofing systems for Michigan schools. Duro-Last’s innovative PVC roofing membranes offer unmatched durability and exceptional energy efficiency. Here’s how Duro-Last makes a difference:

    • Reduced Cooling Costs: Duro-Last’s bright white membrane reflects up to 88% of the sun’s energy, significantly reducing heat gain within the school building. This translates to lower demand on air conditioning systems, leading to substantial cost savings throughout the year, no matter how many students are roaming the halls.

    • Long-lasting Performance: Duro-Last roofs are renowned for their durability, lasting for decades with minimal maintenance. This translates to fewer disruptions for students and teachers, and minimizes the need for costly roof replacements over time.

    • Sustainable Choice: Duro-Last membranes are manufactured using recyclable materials and a sustainable manufacturing process. And, their energy-saving properties contribute to LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification for green building initiatives!

    Making it Easy with TIPS

    We understand that navigating the procurement process for public entities can be complex. At Great Lakes Roofing, we’re proud to work with TIPS (The Interlocal Purchasing System). TIPS is a national cooperative buying program specifically designed to simplify purchasing for schools, municipalities, and other public institutions.

    Through TIPS, Michigan schools can leverage pre-negotiated contracts for Duro-Last roofing systems offered by Great Lakes Roofing. This streamlined process saves valuable time and resources for school administrators, allowing them to focus on what matters most – their students’ education.
