Among Vancouver roofing contractors, Arbutus Roofing is uniquely positioned to work with Greater Vancouver property managers and strata councils in planning and executing roof retrofits and roof maintenance programs.
Working with multi-family and multi-owner groups presents distinct challenges that require a specialized response, and Arbutus has professionals focused on this sector.
Our people understand the demands of communicating with larger groups and will organize the meetings and presentations necessary to keep all stakeholders involved and informed.
Discussions on suitable options for retrofit and repair work can be arranged before the bidding stage in order to lay the groundwork for an informed decision. A visual roof survey may reveal that, over time, structural settling in the building has resulted in water ponding in some roof areas. Sloped insulation or an additional drain, added during a re-roofing project, can be a cost-effective solution.
For sloped roofs, the choices available in laminate shingles from IKO, Certainteed, GAF and Pabco may provide a significant upgrade in the appearance of your building, without a corresponding increase in costs. An Arbutus representative can provide samples and colour charts so that decision-makers can define the tender requirements in advance. For flat roofing applications, built-up roofing (tar & gravel) has generally been replaced with torch on roofing membranes from Soprema, IKO and Siplast. Again, the upgrade in durability has come at a surprisingly low price.
As always, a roofing or re-roofing estimate from Arbutus Roofing will be provided free of charge, and clients can be assured that, as members of the RCABC, Arbutus always follows best roofing practices.
