Roofing Contractors
Duration Construction are the experts in the St. Louis area when it comes to roof repairs and entire roof replacements. Our elite roofing craftsmanship serves both the residential and commercial sectors of St. Louis, providing economical solutions to any number of roofing issues.
A local company, Duration Construction knows that we are doing roofing work on our neighbor’s homes and the businesses we frequent. This makes it all the more important to us to do an excellent job the first time and every time.
Residential Roofing
Your home is your biggest asset, and the roof its main source of protection from outside elements. It is frightening when that protection your home’s roof provides begins to fail. Duration Construction will do a complete inspection of the entire structure, from the roof truss that provides the frame work, to the roofing material that provides the protection. There is much more to your home’s roof then just shingles, and we check it all to find out where the system is compromised:
• Roof Truss – This is frame work of beams that are providing support for your roof. These are checked for signs of cracking and water damage.
• Rafters – The specialized beams that run from the top of the roof to the bottom. Like the roof truss, the structural integrity of these is examined.
• Decking – Sometimes referred to as sheathing, these are the wooden panels that are laid over the roof truss and rafters. Our experts will look for signs of warping, water damage and cracking in the decking material.
• Underlayment – The underlayment, or tar paper, is the heavy felt paper used to cover the decking and provide additional protection from moisture.
• Drip edge – In some cases the edging placed at the end of roof structure is the issue, causing water to infiltrate the underlying roof structure.
• Fascia – This is the specialized trim that is used to cover the rafter end of the eaves, usually where your gutters are attached.
• Soffit – The finished underside of the eaves that covers the area between the end of the eaves and the house. These will be looked at for signs of water damage and rot.
• Flashing – Flashing refers to pieces of metal that are used to protect any intersections in the roof from water entering. This is usually found around chimneys, vent pipes and the joints of any vertical walls.
Once the inspection is complete, we will go over our findings about your roofing structure with you, and give you our best recommendation for the next course of action. In some instances, a roof repair may be all you need, but we are also prepared for new roof installation if that is what your situation calls for.
If a new roof for your home is in order, our skilled workers are experienced in all types of roofing materials and systems, including:
• Slate roofs
• Tile roofs
• Slate simulated roofs
• Stone coated steel roofs
• Wood shake roofs
• Copper sheet metal roofs
• Metal roofs

When called out on our first visit to your business, the same thorough inspection will be performed that we do on Missouri residences. Our highly trained team of roof experts are well schooled in:

We will then go over any issues we find with you and help you in making the right decision for your building. Remember, we are your customers too, and can assure you that our solution will be in the best interest of you and your business.
