Cooley/Building Products is the premier private label manufacturer of high performance single-ply roofing membranes. Since the manufacture of its first commercial roofing membrane in 1977, Cooley has sold more than one billion feet2 (100 million meters2) of roofing membranes around the world—from the toughest climates in North America to those in the Middle East and Asia. Manufactured with Dupont™ Elvaloy® (permanent polymeric flexibilizer), Cooley’s single-ply membranes have set the industry standard for every type of resistance: extreme heat and cold, UV, water, chemical, salt, and other pollutants and contaminates.
