Hear What Our Customers Say

We needed a last minute fix to our roof, which was recently replaced (5 years ago) by another contractor who is no long in business. The shingles started popping up with leave to some of them getting torn off with the recent wind storm we had.

Durable roofing came out the next day, the price was fair but what we liked most about them was their 40 years in business. Since the fix on our house, we have given them other projects. We own a few apartment buildings and was in need of a good flat roof repair company; they did well.

We nothing but good things to say about Durable roofers.

I hired this company to put a new roof on my house and garage in 2007. They did a great job. They were here when they they promised and did a thorough clean up. And they were very reasonable. A few weeks ago we noticed some of the shingles were starting to lift following a very intense wind. We called Durable and despite the fact that our 5 year warrenty on labor ended 3 months ago, they sent out a 3 man crew on Sunday afternoon to go over the whole roof and address the problem no charge. I would totally recommend them to anyone. They really take pride in their good name and you can count on them to stand behind their work.

I was skeptical about getting a reliable roofing company, ( so many fly by night companies) . Carlos Furlan eased my fears and I felt within myself that they were someone I could trust.


The workers were very respectful and did what needed to be done. People on the street have comment how the roof enhances the house and makes it looks new .


This was my first roof experience and I would definitely recommend Durable Roofing to others seeking to get their roof done.
