What inspired you to join NADRA? As a deck builder I stand behind the quality of my work. Our decks aren’t just built to code, we exceed industry standards. NADRA represents the same quality and ideals.
When did you first get involved with this industry? 25 years ago
What was the first thing you ever built? A Dog House! It had siding and a shingled roof.
We want to get to know you, please tell us a little about your business: Durante Home Exteriors was established in 2001. I had been working in the industry for many years, and wanted to build a company customers would trust and return to for years to come. Decking, both Composite and Pressure Treated, account for approximately one-tenth of our business and we average 75 decks per year. Durante’s specialty is windows and doors, but my first love is decks!
How do you define success? RESPECT, of my employees, customers and peers.
What advice would you like to share with fellow members that you have learned in your career? Do it right the first time!
What would you do for a career if you weren’t doing this? Fisherman
A little more about Jason: My fiancé is Ada. I have two sons, Joshua and Jacob, a daughter, Dominique, all of whom work with me, plus an adorable granddaughter, Serena and grandson Keaton. I also have a French Bulldog named Titan.
When not working I love to play golf, fish and hike.
