About Us

Phoenix Roof Consultants

We are an independent consulting firm, not affiliated with any roofing contractor, supplier or material manufacturer. We have 40+ years of combined roof experience and offer services in roof maintenance, inspections, and evaluations, as well as leak investigation, specifications, and project management.

Ted Neef

Ted has 25 years’ experience in the roofing industry. Ten of those years were spent as an installer while the remaining fifteen were spent as a roof consultant for ACE and BCRI. During that time, experience and familiarity were gained with all types of roof systems. Ted has obtained his RRO designation and is an accepted inspector for the RCABC guarantee program. Ted sits on the board of directors for IIBC WCC (International Institute of Building Enclosure Consultants, Western Canada Chapter) and co-chairs the technical committee. Ted is a family man who enjoys numerous outdoor activities.

Matthew Blackstock

Matthew Blackstock joined our team in mid-2021. Born in New Zealand, Matt moved to the BC interior when he was 12. After high school and various other jobs, Matt started roofing in 2003. After 12 years, he hung up the tools and became a roof inspector. Matt spends his spare time with his family and working with the Canadian Cadet Program.

We recently replaced the roofs of our residential strata complex, which consists of several low-rise buildings and a 22-storey tower. We hired Phoenix Roof Consultants to inspect the roofs, write the specification, manage the tendering process, help us evaluate bids, and supervise the installation.

Ted Neef was professional, friendly, and accommodating throughout the entire process. He maintained excellent relationships with the roofing contractors, the Property Manager, our Building Manager, the residents, and neighbouring strata complexes.

He assisted the Strata Council with understanding and selecting appropriate roofing technologies for our environment and attended two town hall meetings to help answer questions from owners.

During the project, he communicated clearly and proactively with all parties and sent regular and detailed progress reports to keep the Strata Council informed at all times. In addition, he attended the worksite consistently, as promised, conducted thorough inspections, and ensured that all work met the specifications and that the contractor resolved deficiencies promptly and correctly.

We completed our project smoothly and efficiently, and Ted was a significant contributor to this success.

I highly recommend Ted and Phoenix Roof Consultants.
