For our work on Steeple Square, Dubuque, Iowa
, The Durable Slate Company
was given this award for excellence in metal roofing and restoration by the International Federation for the Roofing Trade (IFD)
. We are the first American company in 67 years to receive this award; an impressive distinction, considering the many world-class, international projects considered. The awards ceremony itself featured 86 projects from almost a dozen countries.
Gary Howes, COO at The Durable Slate Company, said, “To be the first American company to win this award, it’s beyond my wildest dreams. European companies are the standard when it comes to metalwork and restoration. To be included in that realm shows why we are one of the best.”
“It was fantastic. It’s been a long-term vision and goal,” said John Chan, Executive Vice President. “It’s been in the back of our minds for over 20 years — to be recognized as a top roofing company internationally.”
