In addition to building homes – and lives – on a solid foundation, Duane Anderson reminds people not to forget about the importance of a good roof.
Anderson had just recently returned to the Spokane area from a two-year mission to Alberta, Canada when he began work in the local roofing business as a salesman in the fall of 1997.
“It’s a fun industry,” Anderson said. “Things change from day to day.”
Not wanting to “just be the boss behind a desk,” Duane Anderson, owner of Quality Roofing, makes it a point to scale rooftops alongside his employees. That’s Duane in the red hat. Contributed photo.
One major change for Anderson occurred in 2007 when he decided to start his own company called Quality Roofing. Despite a slew of new responsibilities, one thing has remained the same – Anderson continues to emphasize trust and accountability while dealing directly with each client.
“I enjoy working with people, from my employees to the builders to the homeowners,” he said. “Things like integrity and professionalism are important to me.”
Despite being based in Spokane Valley, Anderson and his crew can be found across the greater Northwest region, from Ellensburg to Post Falls. Referrals generate much of the new business.
“The days of working just in Spokane Valley are long gone,” he said.
