Roofing Tips, Tricks and Ideas

Pickard Roofing: 90 Years Strong

Published by Pickard Roofing at

For 90 years, Pickard Roofing has maintained its presence in the Triangle Area and beyond through their close knit-family values, excellent knowledge and craftsmanship, and attention to aesthetic detail. 


Pickard Roofing has combined quality roofing with customer service excellence since its humble beginnings. James E. Pickard Sr. started the family business out of his garage in 1928 and was joined by three of his sons after their return from World War II. Pickard Jr. started the business with quality, customer service, and excellence at the forefront of his work.  They then moved from the garage to the current location in Durham, NC in 1950. From then on, the business stayed a family affair; with the 3rd generation of Pickard’s taking over the business in 1983. Jim Pickard III has kept the Pickard Roofing business model the same since its beginning; always providing quality roofing services combined with customer service excellence.

Working together as a close-knit family and mentoring the next generation of roofers is a mission for the Pickard family. Pickard Roofing has set the landscape for the future generations to provide the same, if not better, quality roofing services as James E. Pickard Sr. did.


Types of Expertise

As Jim Pickard III says, “The Devil is always in the details. And by keeping your business small and you have control over all phases of work and the crews that go on, then you’re able to keep the quality of your work much higher”.
