Owner / President
German Duarte is a second generation licensed roofing contractor who was inspired by his father’s strong work ethic and ideals to simplify the roofing experience. After attending Florida International University, German attained his roofing license and started Florida Quality Roofing, Inc. He and his father worked together when the company first launched in 2002. After his father retired, German continued to grow and expand the company.
This year German celebrates 14 years as the president and owner of Florida Quality Roofing, an accomplishment that can be attributed to his unyielding commitment to offering honest quality services. German is accessible and hands-on, overseeing our roofing teams on all projects. German’s greatest satisfaction is to be able to continue his father’s work.
Personally, German is a car enthusiast and enjoys learning how things are made. On his bucket list, he wants to visit the car manufacturing plants in Germany.
