Duro-Last Inc.’s annual National Sales Seminar, held in San Antonio, Texas earlier this year, welcomed more than 1,300 guests representing over 200 companies. The highly-anticipated event, which also served as the official kickoff to Duro-Last’s year-long 40th Anniversary celebration, honored multiple contractors for their outstanding dedication and workmanship over the past year.

The top honor of 2017 Contractor of the Year was awarded to two longtime Duro-Last contractors during the annual Awards Banquet. Royalty Roofing from Seymour, Indiana, and Parson’s Commercial Roofing from Waco, Texas, each earned the Contractor of the Year distinction for their exceptional work on complex projects, attention to detail, customer service, and record-setting sales. Both Royalty Roofing and Parsons Commercial Roofing are recognized as Duro-Last Platinum contractors, have been installing Duro-Last Roofing Systems for more than 20 years, and reached over $9 million in sales throughout 2017.
