Roofing Industry Magazines: Part 2

This is the conclusion from our blog post the week of October 4th. Although the list might appear to be endless between print and online media opportunities, I have compiled some of the publications that Duro-Last has been involved with to some degree in recent years because of their connection to the commercial roofing industry. Below is a small description of each – mostly taken from each magazine’s own materials – as well as a link to each website.
