The Company

In 2000, Durabrac Architectural Components was developed in response to a growing need for weatherproof architectural components that are both stylish and durable. Today, Durabrac is an industry leader in vinyl architectural components for both commercial and residential properties. The Durabrac line of products includes porch brackets, rafter tails, corbels, 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 product. CD&M also includes The Original Classic Mailbox Company and Classic Sign & Mirror.

Classic Sign and Mirror developed a notable name in the sign industry with a reputation for quality construction, creativity and originality, earning numerous national and international awards. The Original Classic Mailbox Company provides property-specific mailbox systems for builders developing residential areas and subdivisions.

The Owner (and Developer, Designer, Creative Genius and Master Tinkerer)

As a kid, Mike Sheehan was intrigued by art, architecture, and all things mechanical. After graduating from high school, he joined the military and developed a skill as an aircraft mechanic. He worked as a civilian helicopter mechanic for years, but grew weary of the travel and wanted to be home more often.

He soon found himself opening a business in Pensacola, Florida that allowed him to combine his artistic and mechanical interests (Classic Sign). Over the next twenty years he developed a national reputation as a top sign designer and innovator. From there, Mike branched out into custom mailboxes to fill a demand for uniformity in subdivisions around the region.

A constant tinkerer, Mike began to experiment with using vinyl for his signs and embellishments on mailboxes. He soon learned to mold and fabricate it, finding it to be an excellent material for its durability, capabilities and hardiness. Recognizing the value of architectural brackets in construction, he eventually perfected the vinyl components division now known as Durabrac. Since 2002, he has focused most of his time and energy developing Durabrac into an industry leader.
