We are over the top happy with the process and fabulous results on our island home. Our house had simply outlasted its original metal roof. VanGalee FirstShake shingles installed by a team of upbeat superb professionals from Vanderleek Roofing has us beaming.
From the start communication was excellent. Calls and emails answered immediately. A thorough quote was given, AND was met.
The product is ideal for this forest setting where forest fire hazard is high and wood cedar shakes are not an option. The look works.
The craftsmanship we witnessed led us to include a redo of the dormers, as well. The team worked unbelievably efficiently and well. Gary Vanderleek was at the helm attending to every detail.
The payment schedule was clear, reasonable and managed expertly.
I love that my VanGalee FirstShake Vanderleek roof will always look like a newly done cedar shingle roof but with so many more advantages. Unlike the old style large metal sheets , that were up previously. these can be spot repaired (for example when I redo my electrical mast)
And it looks soooooo GOOD!
Oh and the work site and final clean up were spic and span
It was a pleasure to be taken care of so well.
Heartily recommend these experts and leaders in their field.

I have used First Shake’s Cedar metal roof at our LTC home in Calgary. It is a great product. Looks great. Debris simply glides off of it. Highly recommend A+
Installed metal shake on my commercial building in strathmore to replace the existing ribbed roof. Much better product and looks great!
Six years ago, I had my home reroofed with VanGalee FirstShake. Every day that I pull up to my driveway, I say to myself, “I have the best-looking roof I have ever seen.” I believe it is the most innovative and beautiful roof on the market. So much so that I quit my job and am now half owner in the company! This metal roof puts your standard metal ‘industrial’ looking roofs to shame. Why have plain, when you can have major BLING!
Thank you VanGalee! I still can’t get over how great my new roof looks compared to my old fiberglass laminate shingle roof. I wanted a long-term metal roof but didn’t like the industrial look that it has. But, this metal shake is just amazingly beautiful and surprisingly quiet.
