A man stood before the pearly gates,

his face was scarred and old.

He stood before the Man of Fate,

for admission to the fold.

"What have you done?" St Peter asked, "to gain your passage here?"

He said, "I've been a roofer, Sir, for many a long hard year."

The pearly gates swung open wide. St Peter touched the bell.

"Come in and choose your harp" he said, "You've done your time in hell."

Nobody will argue that being a roofer is hard, demanding work. Our crews are outstanding, hard working men who take incredible pride in their finished product. We are very proud whenever we talk about "the guys" and would like you to have an opportunity to meet our team here.

Paul has been working on roofs for 30+ years arriving in Parksville in 2004. Prior to that, he learned the trade in Ontario and then made the move out West to North Vancouver where he managed his own crews sub-contracting for some of the largest roofing companies in North Vancouver. When his son was born, he became focused at finding a softer place to raise his son. Enter Parksville. You will hear him say, "It's the best move I've ever made!"
