With the right information, home owners can make the best decisions. Our estimators are the information gatherers who bring photos, explanations and recommendations to you. While some roofing estimators exploit the lack of knowledge of those outside of the trade, at Durable we invite your participation.
We are not satisfied until sure that your roof's problems and our recommendations are fully understood. We work with you to prioritize your needs and respect your budget in order to form a relationship with you for the long term.
Your roof, no matter the historic material, size, or location, is a unique treasure and the work we perform is meant to last for generations. It is important to us that you appreciate and admire your roof, sharing its story for generations to come. Historic roofs are more than their function and immediate beauty; they are history. Your history and the history of your home or building.
