About Us

Royal Roofing Ltd. is owned and operated by Mr.& Mrs. Ilia Pengu. Ilia did his roofing apprenticeship in Albania, and began working as a roofer in Tirana from 1988.  Mr. Pengu and his family emigrated from Albania to Canada in 2001.  After arriving in Toronto in April 2001, Mr. Pengu immediately started working for Alpine Roofing.  He started his own business within one year, and made remarkable progress because of his business philosophy, which is simple:“Nothing but the best”.  This means: nothing but the best materials, nothing but the best workmanship, and nothing but the best service for each and every customer.

As a result, Royal Roofing’s services came to be in great demand, and the company prospered. As Calgary experienced a boom in the past decade, Ilia and his family moved to Calgary in 2006 and established Royal Roofing Contractor Ltd. as a private Alberta corporation.

During this time, there was tremendous demand for qualified trades people but a severe shortage of skilled workers. Ilia brought over competent roofers and other trades people from Albania under the Federal Skilled Workers Program. This allowed Royal Roofing to consistently maintain a qualified and stable group of employees, and to provide the level of quality workmanship which is hallmark of Royal Roofing.Our employees are committed to loyalty, honesty, dependability, and professionalism, and have a very close relationship with Mr. Pengu.

Royal Roofing has successfully completed over 3000 re-roofing projects since 2006, and gained numerous satisfied customers who have provided repeat business and referrals. Royal Roofing is a Certified Contractor with Firestone Building Products of Canada and Building Products of Canada (BP), as well as a member of the Alberta Allied Roofing Association (AARA), Better Business Bureau, Calgary Residential Rental Association, Edmonton Construction Association.
