Our Mission To Redefine the Roofing Industry
For many people, the roofing industry has long been associated with a certain stereotype: the gruff, unclean, and not-so-friendly roofer. At Cambie Roofing, we’re dedicated to challenging and changing this perception by putting a strong emphasis on superior customer service. We’re leading the way in redefining the roofing industry, transforming it into one that values exceptional service, professionalism, and cleanliness.
The State of the Roofing Industry
The roofing industry, much like other sectors in the construction trade, has long been wrapped in a cloak of stereotypes and misconceptions. When many people think about the roofing industry, their thoughts are often filled with certain entrenched images and perceptions. Let’s take a moment to explore these thoughts and how the reality of modern roofing contrasts sharply with them.
The ‘Rough and Ready’ Stereotype
Often, the first image that springs to mind when considering the roofing industry is of the hardworking, ‘rough and ready’ individual braving the elements. The perception is of workers who are gruff, uncommunicative, and generally lack refinement. This notion, while it acknowledges the industry’s hard work, unfortunately overshadows the professionalism and dedication to quality service inherent in modern roofing practices.
Roofing A Male-Dominated Industry
Another prevalent thought about the roofing industry is its heavily male-dominated nature. While it’s true that historically, men have comprised the majority in this sector, the reality today is that more and more women are entering and excelling in the roofing industry. These trailblazing women are shattering stereotypes and redefining the gender norms in roofing, adding diverse perspectives and skill sets.
The ‘Dirty Job’ Concept
Many associate the roofing industry with being a ‘dirty job,’ picturing workers covered in dust and grime. This perception does little justice to the meticulous planning, precise execution, and strict safety and cleanliness protocols that modern roofing requires. A professional roofing job today leaves no room for mess or compromise on cleanliness.
High Risk and Danger
Roofing, due to the heights involved and the physical nature of the work, is often thought of as a dangerous and high-risk occupation. While there are certainly risks involved, the modern roofing industry is characterized by strict adherence to safety standards and regulations, the use of advanced safety equipment, and regular safety training for workers.
Lack of Innovation
Some might perceive roofing as an old-fashioned industry, devoid of innovation. But the reality couldn’t be further from the truth. The roofing industry has embraced technology and innovation, from advanced roofing materials and techniques to the use of drones for inspections and project planning. It’s an industry that’s evolving at a fast pace, matching strides with the latest in technology and sustainability.
While these perceptions continue to linger, the roofing industry is working hard to redefine its image and dispel these stereotypes. Companies like Cambie Roofing are at the forefront of this transformation, striving to provide professional, respectful, and superior service to clients, keeping safety and cleanliness as a priority, promoting diversity, and embracing innovation.
As more people come to realize the true nature of the modern roofing industry, we will see the perceptions shift, replacing stereotypes with a more accurate, positive image. After all, the roofing industry is not just about providing cover; it’s about building trust, forging relationships, and enhancing community living, one roof at a time.

Our “customer-first” philosophy is rooted in our belief that every interaction with a client is a chance to show them respect, care, and commitment. Our team is trained to listen attentively to our clients’ needs, answer their questions with patience and clarity, and provide honest and transparent advice.

Our team members arrive on site well-groomed, in clean uniforms, and ready to work efficiently and respectfully. We take great pride in maintaining a tidy work area, always making sure to clean up thoroughly at the end of each day. We believe that the state of our work site reflects our respect for our clients and their property.
Building Trust through Exceptional Service
We are in the business of building not only roofs but also trust. We provide superior service at every stage of the roofing project, from the initial consultation to project completion and post-service follow-up. Our dedication to exceptional service has resulted in numerous positive reviews and repeat customers, gradually changing the reputation of roofers from gruff and unfriendly to approachable, reliable, and professional.

At Cambie Roofing, we’re firm believers in continual learning and improvement. We regularly conduct training sessions and workshops for our team to keep them updated on the latest customer service best practices and techniques. Our goal is to exceed our clients’ expectations consistently, and to do this, we strive to learn and improve continuously.
We’re not just a business; we’re part of the community. By actively participating in local events, supporting local charities, and creating positive experiences for our clients, we’re helping to shape a more positive perception of the roofing industry as a whole. It’s about making a difference, not only in our clients’ homes but also in our community.
