Re Shingle Roof

Sunik installed our new roof last summer. I've been involved in the construction industry for over 42 years. I can honestly say that Sunik Roofing is absolutely the best roofing company in Calgary. Working with the people at Sunik, from Reception to Service, was a real pleasure. Marcus the estimator really knows his stuff. The crew showed up on time, installed the shingles fast and efficiently and kept the site completely clean. The service man was here the next day to check the job to make sure everything was done properly and the site was clean. I would heartily recommend Sunik Roofing to anyone who needs a new roof and wants the job done hassle free.

Very Happy

We recently put a new roof on our house with Sunik Roofing. We were very happy with the entire process. Nicholas was very professional in all our dealings. And all his guys were as well. Our place was completely picked up every day that they were here. Every deck was swept and all debris was hauled away. One guy even removed our downspouts and cleared them, which was necessary, but not their responsibility. I would highly recommend them if you need a new roof.

Sunik Roofing: Past Warranty, Past Hope, Take a Pass on this Company

I was overseas working when I had to get my roof reshingled in Calgary. I was forced to use my wife to oversee this process, as I was on the other side of the planet. Unfortunately, as an overseas co-owner of the home, I was not informed by Sunik Roofing of the two year warranty period on the home, which requires, apparently, a payment for renewal of the warranty. Four years later, the Sunik Roofing roof work has been found to be leaking water into the living room during this weeks rain in Calgary; after my home management company was informed of the leak by the tenant, I called the company asking them to do an estimate for repair on their own faulty work, the company then said they would sent an estimator for $250 Canadian...when I asked the person on the phone why they were trying to charge for an estimate (when in fact, my home manager had lined up another roofer who was giving an estimate for free, which is standard construction practice), the rep on the line said this was actually a service call, and they would fix the leak plus charge a service call fee for the roofing technician (charge me for the estimate, and the fix). This was just a play on words, and an attempt at charging for an estimate. As I filed a complaint with the BBB on this practice of predatory pricing on an estimate by Sunik Roofing for their own botched work, I noted that the Sunik Roofing good BBB rating was actually on two Sunik Roofing offices to the North of Calgary in rural areas, and in fact the office in Calgary (the office I just called which installed the leaky roof) has never been rated by a consumer before at the BBB until I put a poor rating in yesterday to the Better Business Bureau yesterday. So do not do like I did, and use the BBB alone as a judgement tool with respect to the work of this contractor; check other sources of information, specific to City of Calgary, as you cannot rely on one source of information on contractors for their work. Check several previous direct references from the company within Calgary, especially references that are in the 4 to 8 year range for roofs, in order to determine the long-term quality of Sunik Roofings work...which from my perspective, as I face potentially costly repairs (the other contractor is doing the estimate right now on the leak), could lead you - in reality - to getting something like the below email stating your roof is leaking from your home management people (contactees removed).

When we give a quote we always include a copy of our labour warrantee with the quote.
When the job is complete we provide a copy of our labour warrantee along with the billing.
We also send out mailers when the labour warrantee is about to expire and offer a chance to extend
the warrantee.
In this case our labour warrantee has expired and the customer chose not to renew it.

We understood that the customer had a leak. We offered to come out right away to temporarily fix the
leak to minimize any interior damage [totally optional]. We would charge $250.00 for a temporary repair.
Then do a proper repair if necessary at a later date.
We never charge nor was there ever any intention to charge for an estimate. The customer could have chosen
to skip the temporary repairs and just get the free estimate. If we had just done an temporary repair, there would be obligation or commitment
to go with us for the any other work.

We stated that if there were a bigger issue the $250.00 could be put towards the repair.

There is only one Sunik Roofing with one location and one BBB listing.
If You would like to discuss this further I would be happy to speak with you.

Excellent roof repair

Mike and Brad came out to identify the cause of a roof leak (roof was done in 2012 by a company no longer in business). Starting in the basement where the leak was coming down the waste stack suggested the leak was a flashing problem. Inspection on the roof confirmed the issue. A few days later they were back with the materials needed to fix the problem. I appreciated their attitude, expertise and comprehensive fix of the problem. I am really pleased with Sunik Roofing and their employees!

Roof shingle replacement

Good shingle replacement and good advice before the work began (e.g. what to do with some eavestrough problems). Work site kept very tidy and no nails found on the driveway.

Roofing

"Well, hubby did all the research, and there's a reason why Sunik came up so often in BBB searches. Fast, professional -- and they *get it* that having your rood redone is disruptive and messy. They do their best to minimize the trauma to the house and people living in it. They were the best prepared of the three roofers we called for an estimate, had the best "presentation", and were the most professional. They submitted aerial photos of our house, showing us the damage and areas of wear. They gave us a list of houses nearby to go check out the various types and colors of roofs.They stuck to the price, the deadline, and they even schedule subsequent visits to make sure every nail and scrap of material is cleaned up. (Not all roofers are that conscientious: We've had neighbors get their roofs done with other companies, who have let the packing materials just drift all around the neighborhood.) It's not a purchase that people plan for (and it's not cheap!) but Sunik did a fantastic job, and we would easily recommend them without hesitation.

Reroofing a single home

Sunik dropped off material a week ago, and then called last week to let us know they would be starting on the weekend. They came in and started Sunday while we were away. They came back and finished up in a couple of hours on the Monday. I can't say enough how impressed I am with Sunik. Their cleanup was fantastic, their people are very friendly, and the house looks great with the new shingles. Thank you Sunik!

Roof

Our experience with Sunik was fantastic. Nicholas as the salesperson is very responsive and knowledgable. The roofers themselves were very professional and fast. They work well as a tea m. Every thing was completed on time with everything clean everyday before they finished. . Make sure to get females on the crew. They are fast and flexible and strong.

downspouts

I contracted Sunik Roofing to replace my roof and also replace the downspouts on the east side of my house. The roofing crew subcontractor did a stellar job in just one day. Clean up was great and done right away. It was well worth the >$6,000 I paid for the job.

I cannot say the same for the replacement of the down spout. The total materials used were 53feet of straight down pipe, 4 elbows and 4 straps. A small hole was cut into the fence to accommodate the downpipe. At retail cost the materials as far as I can see was roughly $122. The job cost me $498.00 for apprentice roofers from Sunik to install the 53feet of pipes and 4 elbows.
The crew left the pre-existing aluminium straps screwed to the retaining wall and unprepared with the proper tools to cut a hole in the fence. I loaned them a coping saw and drill to complete the cut.
The Sunik Roofing sign is still on the street out in front of my house 6 weeks later.

Thank you for your review, we value your comments and your patronage.

Regarding your eavestroughing, I understand that you are looking at the cost of material only. Which can be very deceiving as there are many other costs associated with this job that you may not be taking into consideration.

For instance, our Estimator puts time into matching the colour, measuring the troughs and writing up the contract.

Our project manager then orders the material and notifies the customer.

Then there is a pick up from the supplier and delivery of the product to the job.

Also there is the labor involved for the removal of the old downspouts, installing new downspouts, elbows and strapping, cutting holes in the fence, the clean up and hauling the old downspouts to the recycler. We also have to write safety hazard reports for each individual job.

In addition add cost for insurance, workman's compensation, fuel and incidentals. The breakdown $140.00 material $75 to pick up and deliver, $75 to dispose and haul away $75 for labour $65 for insurance, workman's compensation & incidentals and $20 GST.

So the actual cost to Sunik to do this job was $430.00.

As you can see our mutually agreed price was very fair. Our profit on this job was approximately 12% or $65.00.

We will be out before week’s end to remove our sign and remove the straps that we missed.

Once again thank you for choosing Sunik Roofing and giving us a chance to explain the costs in this forum.

Regards,
Nick Sims / President CEO
