With decades of expertise in roofing and construction, Don Lighty knows exactly what it takes to build a roof that will last. Lighty Construction is a master contractor for Duro-Last, a top-rated material that stands up to all Oklahoma’s challenges, including wind, rain, and even fire.
Roofs Built Right
Most roofs are vulnerable to damage at the shingle seams, where water and wind can penetrate over time. But Duro-Last roofs are made of custom fabricated polyvinyl, with the seams welded into a solid unit so nothing can get through. It’s ideal for flat and low-slope roofs. Duro-Last is energy efficient and stays close to the ambient temperature, resulting in lower AC bills.
With a Class A fire rating, Duro-Last won’t catch on fire, which sets it apart from most roofing materials. As a retired Edmond firefighter, Don knows firsthand how important this is. “People don’t realize how flammable some roofing materials are,” he says.
Lighty Construction’s contractors are fully insured and factory-trained for Duro-Last installations. Every finished roof is inspected by a Duro-Last technician and graded. Don’s goal is a grade of 100. “I won’t install anything that I wouldn’t put on my own home,” he says.
A Lifetime of Experience
Don grew up in the construction industry. His father began taking him and his twin brother on jobs when they were barely old enough to lift a hammer. After coming to OKC for college, he worked for a trim carpenter. “It taught me to be extremely attentive to detail,” says Don. “Everything had to be square, straight, and perfect. That’s how I approach my roofing jobs.”
With his construction background, Don can also take care of other issues that might surface during a roof rebuild, such as water damage or rot. “Sometimes it takes more than a roofer to build a roof,” he says.
