Not all roofers and solar contractors are created equal.

At the beginning of 2015, the City of Los Angeles began enforcing ordinance number 183149 of the Los Angeles Municipal Code which applies to the construction of every new building, every new building alteration with a building permit valuation of $200,000 or more, and every building addition throughout the City of Los Angeles. Specifically, the City of LA is attemtping to reduce the heat island effect within the city, while lowering overall energy consumption (i.e. AC use). This code applies to both residential and commercial properties and is an aggressive, yet necessary approach to meeting California’s Title 24 cool roof requirements.

You've spent weeks, maybe months soliciting estimates from roofing contractors for your project. You've selected the roofing company which you feel will do the best job and they've issued you a start date for the re-roof project... Now what? The fear of the unknown often leaves customers feeling more anxious about the roofing process than is necessary. The re-roofing process can be a messy and dangerous task as a DIY project, but if managed properly with a qualified roofing contractor such as Chandler's Roofing, many of the potential risks and problems associated with roof demolition, lumber replacement and roof installation can and should be prevented.
Through the years as a roofing contractor in the Los Angeles and Orange County area...Read more

A couple weeks ago, after many, many years in the roofing industry we encountered a first on a roofing project in Long Beach, CA. Not uncommon to come across a unique detail on a roofing installation, as no two roofs seem to ever be the same. However, what started out as a normal job, quickly turned into something far more dangerous and odd.
Before we begin, we want to lead with a caveat... It will not change our use or promotion of the following roofing materials, nor will we name names or manufacturers for protection of their brand. We have installed this exact same roofing system, literally hundreds, if not thousands of times before. Yet, we simply share this to our future clients and fellow peers as a learning experience and out...Read more

Beautiful home in Rancho Palos Verdes, California
We hear it all the time, “I don’t have any signs of a leak!” or “Can’t you just slap some of that black stuff on it to fix it?” In all reality, roof leaks, mold growth and structural damage could be occurring to your property and you don’t even know it.
This story of a beautiful home, slow little roof leaks and several poor quality roofing contractors in Los Angeles, California is no different. This not-so-little, multi-million dollar home is located in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA and is meticulously maintained. It has a terrific two piece tile roof, though it was installed on a very low slope, with inboard gutters that were never properly waterproo...Read more

Installed new roof, solar system and rain gutters on this beautiful custom residential home in Orange, California.
"I needed a roofing contractor for my new 6,000 square foot home, so I asked the local roofing supply company (Pacific Supply) for companies they knew did great work. They gave me two company names and Chandler's Roofing was one of them. We were looking for new roofing, gutters and solar panels. Trevor Leeds came out and covered details on each aspect of the project extensively and his price quote was less than the other company. Throughout construction, our project manager, Ricardo Diaz and his team did great work. We will definitely use Chandler's again in the future!"

Nearly 8 years ago, in August of 2006, Elon Musk, Co-Founder & CEO of Tesla Motors put out a personal blog post about "The Secret Tesla Motors Master Plan (just between you and me)." In this article, Mr. Musk transparently details the innovative path Tesla Motors was embarking on to create a wide range of affordable, high quality electric vehicles which would eventually make their way down to a reasonably priced family car. In his post, he counters a few common misconceptions which are routinely used to place a black eye on the electric vehicle industry and more importantly he highlights the bigger purpose of Tesla Motors. States Musk, "The overarching purpose of Tesla Motors (and the reason I am funding the company) is to help exped...Read more
