Who We Are

My Name is Doug Heath ( the roofer )

When I was in my teens growing up I worked in restaurants starting when I was 16. At the age of 21 there were some roofers putting on a roof in our neighborhood. They were a team working outside with a great view and getting a suntan. The results of their work would be around and appreciated for years, unlike the work I was doing in the restaurant.

My first job in the roofing trade was working as an assistant to a Hawaiian Samoan who had been roofing since forever. A "roofers, roofer" He took me under his wing for about 5 years and took the time to teach me the right way to roof Back then we did not have nail guns, every roof was nailed by hand, It gave you time to think about what you were doing. Always do it right the first time .....then when the rain season come we could go fishing or to Hawaii...not back to fix leaks!

In 1981 after the required 5 years, I took and passed the California Contractors Exam. My License number is 420175 I began working alone, then hired a helper and took the time to train him. Walter is still working with me today.

In 1986 I moved the roofing company from Los Angeles to Manteca. We changed the name from Doug Heath Roofing to Nushake Roofing. At the time we were putting on a lot of New Shake Roofs.

Over the years we grew....and over the last 5 years we have down sized because of the economy and to keep better control of our roofing jobs.

Most of the roofer we have working with us have been with us for over 15 years.

In 2011 we became a GAF Master Elite Roofing Contractor. Less then 2% of roofing contractors obtain this distinct honor.

Last year we earned The Presidents Award.

Today I am 62 years old, I still have the passion for roofing.
