Acumen Roofing

Construction & Renovations-Home Decor

It has only been a year since Acumen Roofing got off the ground in Fort St. James, but John Den Engelsen applies his 20 years of roofing experience to his business every day. In addition to traditional roofing applications such as asphalt shingles and metal roofing, he is most proud of the use of GEM Euroshield products – shingles made from recycled rubber tires as an eco-friendly alternative to asphalt shingles.

Proper installation of your roofing materials is one thing, but preventative maintenance can add years to the life of your roof. Acumen Roofing also offers vent installation, gutter cleaning and snow removal. Den Engelsen is so confident in the workmanship of his products he offers a 5-year guarantee.

Meet John Den Engelsen

Having lived in Fort St. James for 20 years, John Den Engelsen knew there was a need for a local roofer. After 18 years of working in the forest service sector, he retired and returned to the roofing business. John owned a roofing business in Alberta for 20 years prior to moving to Fort St. James. He is now using old skills to keep himself busy and loves the independence of being an entrepreneur in a town that he loves. John enjoys the many lakes, the skiing, and the community spirit that Fort St. James has to offer.
