Over the last few months, we have begun to see an influx of commercial roofing interest, much more so than this time in previous years. Certainly a continued interest in commercial solar has helped, but something else was driving the interest and we couldn't figure out why. It wasn't rain or weather and the wild fires have only slightly affected the core of our market. No, it was something else all together and it wasn't until we had a discussion with our friend who is an accountant that it hit us.

The new Tax Cuts and Jobs Act has been contributing to the increased private negotiated, small to mid-size commercial roofing leads that our project management team has been running!

So we did some ...

White, Title 24 compliant, mechanically fastened single-ply PVC IB Roof Systems project in Los Angeles, California with two-piece clay tile relay. Built AC curbs and installed new AC pan, along with new IB Scupper drains. Existing skylight was reused, but skylight curb was rebuilt and re-roofed with IB material.

Chandler’s Roofing uses its communication skills to exceed expectations on The Pines Townhomes


by Chrystine Elle Hanus


Working with homeowners associations can be challenging. From conception to completion, such projects are lengthy. Homeowners associations often have a board of directors to answer to and appease, further complicating projects.


In addition to communicating with diverse personalities within an association and board of directors, there are multiple residents to consider during all project phases. Accepting such a project requires more than exceptional technical skills—it requires keen communication and ability to meet the expectations of all involved.

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.

Mid-century modern (MCM) architecture is not simply a design, it is a lifestyle, a movement and one we are keenly in tune with. At Chandler’s Roofing we understand that owning a California modern home brings unique challenges and architectural features, but more importantly it carries great meaning to the owner of the building, particularly if you are blessed to own a home here in Southern California designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, Joseph Eichler, Cliff May, or the like. We maintain our Eichler Network Service Provider status with pride.



Most Eichler and Cliff May homes, with their glass walls, tongue and groove wood ceilings and post-and-beam structure lend themselves to flat, or low-s...

Pre-planning and clear communications make this Chandler's Roofing condo project a success.



Most roofing contractors would agree that working with Home Owners Associations (HOAs) could be a challenge. From gestation to completion, the life cycles on these condo projects are long and the personalities within the HOA itself are diverse. The reroofing of The Pines Townhomes HOA (The Pines) in Lomita, California, was no exception. However, NRCA member, Chandler's Roofing of San Pedro, exceeded the HOA's expectations in every area of the project.


"Very early on, we established a terrific rapport with the HOA and its roofing committee, as well as the president of the HOA board of directors, Wil Vin...
