Proverbs 11:27

WE DOn't want to just sell you a roof -

Our solid track record with over 1,000 listed customer references since 1985 is unique and to many clients, impressive particularly for our type of industry.

President Nancy Olthuis Thygesen met Rick in 2012 and they were married in 2013. Nancy convinced Rick to move back to Edmonton from BC, where he had been born, having grown up in the surrounding small towns of Wetaskiwan, Provost, and Vegreville, Alberta.

Real Life Roofing's goal is to be your professional roofing consultant - not just a salesman. Our service will provide the customer with the most accurate and complete information to more fully assess the best product to meet individual needs and expectations.

Rick's experience and specialized expertise is now internationally recognized and continues to be sought out by Canadian and US manufacturers and world class industry leading production line engineers such as the Bradbury Group, New Zealand, the birthplace of today's metal shingles and tiles.
