While attending Langley High School in McLean, Virginia, he took a job as a Technician/Installer and began to learn the business from the ground up. Equipped with that knowledge, he soon decided to go into business for himself as a sub-contractor. A few years later, D&D; Siding and Roofing Specialists was born. Dale's commitment to his employees and his customers, as well as his commitment to combining truly personalized service with superior craftsmanship, has earned D&D; a reputation as an exceptional place to work.
