About Us

In 2000, Durabrac Architectural Components was developed in response to a growing need for weatherproof exterior architectural components that are both stylish and durable. Today, Durabrac is an industry leader in PVC/vinyl exterior architectural components for both commercial and residential properties. The Durabrac line of products includes large builder brackets, corbels, rafter tails, porch brackets, gable brackets, sawn balusters, running trim and porch spandrel. 

Durabrac is a division of Classic Design & Manufacturing, Inc., a family owned business which has been in operation since 1981. Our longevity is testament to our ability to adapt to industry trends while never compromising the integrity of our products. CD&M also included The Original Classic Mailbox Company and Classic Sign & Mirror.


Durabrac - A Combination of Art and Mechanics

Owner Mike Sheehan has always been intrigued with art, architecture and all things mechanic. After becoming a highly skilled helicopter mechanic in the military and civilian world, Mike opened his first business, Classic Sign & Mirror. This was the beginning of a masterful union of art and mechanics. Over the next twenty years, Mike developed a national reputation as a top sign developer and innovator. From there, he branched into custom mailboxes to fill a demand for uniformity in subdivisions around the region. 

Eventually, Mike began to experiment with using vinyl for his signs and mailbox embellishments. He soon learned to mold and fabricate it, finding it to be an excellent material for its durability, capabilities and hardiness. 

Stepping out in the forefront of a new trend in the building industry, the use of PVC/vinyl architectural brackets in construction, CD&M branched out once more with the development of its PVC/vinyl architectural components line known as Durabrac. 

Today, CD&M solely focuses on the Durabrac line of products. While we no longer manufacture mailboxes or custom signs, we fully recognize that our experience in developing these products led us to where we are today—an industry leader in PVC/vinyl components.
