Owner, President of Durham Region Roofing Ltd. I, myself, have been roofing for five years. I learned everything from my partner, who has been in the industry for over fifteen years. Although my partner is the main decision maker in the field, I have made sure that I maintain extensive knowledge of the roofing industry because I realize that, as a woman, I must prove myself to be as good or better than my male counterparts and because as an owner, it is my business to know my field. My major contribution is my commitment to excellent customer service and ethical business practices, although my partner shares this view with me as well.
