About Us - Introducing Roofer Resource (RR)

Welcome to Roofer Resource, the online community for roofers living and working in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland. As most tradesmen know, construction in Canada is booming, and this is especially true in Vancouver as we prepare for the 2010 Winter Games. Building renovations and new construction projects can be seen throughout the city and roofers are in high demand. In fact, when you consider the winter climate that we endure in Vancouver and the effect that it can have on a building's roof, roofers are perhaps the most sought after contractors around. Roofer Resource provides roofers with industry specific knowledge so that they can capitalize on the booming roofing industry.
