My name is Orest Smal, I have been working in the cedar roofing industry for more than 15 years. In 2008 I started my own company, Emerald Cedar Contracting, and it has been our goal to ensure superior quality roofs for all our clients.
To ensure this quality I have hand picked a few professionals, and these professionals along with myself are the ones that actually work on the roof. Each of us have been certified with Fall Arrest, WSIB, and the appropriate amount of insurance to ensure no liability for the home owner. Emerald Cedar does not subcontract out because we take pride in our work and want to make sure everything is done right.
Although we specialize in cedar roofing over the past couple of years we have begun to take on projects such as Standing Seam Metal/Copper roofs, EnviroShake and Slate roofing. If this is something that you would be interested in we would be more than happy to provide you with a quote.
All of our roofs come with 10 year formal warranty.
“Working with Orest and the Emerald Cedar team was a wonderful experience for my family. Our cedar roof was fully restored to it¹s original beauty and they completed the project on time and on budget. Their professionalism, attention to detail and craftsmanship was top notch. I would definitely recommend Emerald Cedar to anybody considering a cedar roof for their home or recreational property. ”
“Orest (the owner of Emerald Cedar) did a terrific job re-roofing our cedar roof in the fall of 2013. I obtained a number of quotes before deciding on Orest. He was the only roofing company where the person who quoted the job also performed it. Orest and his team performed the job on time and as quoted. Orest is very experienced and is well regarded within the cedar roof trade and with residential clients. He is always professional and pleasant. I highly recommend Orest and Emerald Cedar. ”
“Orest and his very pleasant and professional crew did an excellent job replacing our cedar shingle roof. The care taken is seldom seen in workmen today. He even returned the first lot of shingles because he felt they were too thin. We highly recommend him and as a bonus his price was highly competitive. ”
“Orest and his team from Emerald Cedar Contracting exceeded my expectations in all facets of a recent cedar shingle replacement for myself and 3 of my adjoined neighbours. From the moment the quote was made until payment for the work, timelines were adhered to strictly and communication was frequent and reliable. The quality of the workmanship is excellent and the price quoted reflects very good value for the job completed. ”
“We are extremely pleased with the work Orest and his crew did on our roof. They were professional, punctual, polite and every day when they finished they left the site tidy and clean. They were a pleasure to have working at our home and the roof looks amazing. I would highly recommend Emerald Contracting, and Orest in particular!”
Orest was great to work with. He provided options and had no trouble doing some custom work for us. His crew was extremely professional: tidy, focussed, hardworking. They dealt with issues that arose in a very professional manner. When someone accidentally cracked a skylight with a tool, they stopped work to inform us immediately. Orest took care of the skylight replacement and solved the problem to my complete satisfaction. We love the cedar product and how it looks on our house. I can’t recommend Emerald Cedar too highly. Five stars.
“Orest and his team did a great job of cedar shingling our century home! His staff was very professional in manner, took pride in their work, and were diligent in completing the task. I would highly recommend them, and definitely use them again in the future!”
