Roofing and Energy Contractors
Randy Feriante founded Dura-Foam in 1981 in response to the energy crisis of the early 80’s. Since then, he has continued to build his company with emphasis on green roofing and renewable energy solutions. Dura-Foam Solar Center is staffed with construction managers, engineers, and trade professionals who are equipped to respond to projects of any complexity in the fields of roofing and solar power.
“Our family based company is built upon a foundation of safety, excellence and service.” – Randy Feriante, Owner and Founder
Family Owned & Operated
As a family based company, we take customer relations seriously. Our reputation depends on our ability to deliver a high level of customer satisfaction. The majority of the jobs we contract are obtained based word-of-mouth recommendations by our foundation of loyal and satisfied customers.
No High Pressure Salesmen
Our salaried staff puts your best interests first. No one gets a ‘pricey’ commission at your expense.
Our most experienced field managers have been with us for over 20 years. The success of the roofing portion of our business is attributed to our trade professionals who take the time and effort necessary to see that every detail is executed properly. Our engineering and management staff deliver the trade experience required in some of the more complex intricacies of solar installations.

Dura-Foam Roofing & Solar Center Crew Leaders and Management
About Our Production Team
Various core personnel of our production team have been with our company for over 20 years. Our less experienced apprentice field technicians are not pictured. Our valued field employees are the hands and feet of our business and their services are invaluable. Members from the management and engineering staff often join the production team on integrated solar roof installations and more complicated jobs to guarantee that systems are installed to specification.
Interestingly, foam roofing installations are not as labor intensive as most other types of roof installations. Rather than lugging rolls of tar paper all over a roof, material is transferred from truck to roof via specialized pumps and hoses in liquid form. Compared to other types of roof systems, ours require less burden on our backs, but substantially more mechanical expertise and application skill. Fortunately, these innovations in roofing application methods allow us to offer our customers the highest performance roof system composed of the most durable materials at a competitive price.
