The highly credentialed technicians at Trela Roofing and Remodeling do a lot more than roofing and remodeling. The company name is a holdover from its beginnings in 1952, though today, the company spreads its attention throughout the interior and exterior of the house. On the outside, they handle duties such as hand-nailing shingles on the roof, repairing and installing gutters, and installing sliding patio doors. Meanwhile, remodeling kitchens and bathrooms, painting, and installing solar water heaters to heat panic room jacuzzis are a few of the services they perform inside of the house.
