WE DOn't want to just sell you a roof -
but help you buy the right one!


Real Life Roofing Inc. was incorporated in Alberta to continue over 35 years marketing, sales, installation and design of premium quality roofing systems in British Columbia. General Manager Rick Thygesen brings a wide range of experience since 1972 with design, sales, application, and manufacturing of quality roofing systems with real life field-tested performance. Our solid track record with over 1,000 listed customer references since 1985 is unique and 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 was born and grew up in 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.
