Business Profile: David Sinay

A-1 David’s Roofing Company, 775-727-1409

Age: 60

Background: “I started roofing straight out of high school in San Diego, California. A good friend got me into the business and I stayed with it because that’s what I know how to do. I love this job because I love being in different places every day. I worked for a company shop in the 1980s and 1990s, where I gained a lot of experience. I came out here in 2005 to Pahrump and have been my own boss since 1995. Before I came out here I was a roofing contractor out in California.”

Years in business: “I have been in the business for 42 years.”

Personal: “I love off-roading on quads. I just like to go places where a lot of people don’t go.”

First job: “When I was 16 years old I worked for an Italian restaurant washing dishes.”

Business Climate: “Everyone has a roof, and will eventually need some kind of roofing repair. I think we do quality work and so we built up some good referrals and this leads to a stronger future for us.”

IN SEASON: The beat on beets

I’ve noticed that one of the most requested items at the Farmers Market is beets. It mystifies me because I am not a fan of the flavor. Beets are fun to grow though, and very versatile. They are also easy to grow and have a quick turn-around from seed to harvest.

IN SEASON: Broccoli, the gem of a cool season vegetable garden

It may be hard to imagine as we head into Labor Day weekend with excessive heat warnings, but fall, with its cooler temperatures, is just around the corner. Fall brings not only cooler temperatures but a new growing season, and maybe even the easiest time to grow a garden in our year-round growing climate.
