When you grow up working with your 3 brothers on roofing job sites, you find a way to implement some healthy rivalry! In recent years, the owner of Riverside Roofing, Bernie Vlietstra, and his brothers have entered in roofing competitions across Canada, against hundreds of other skilled roofers. These competitions take place in large convention centres and warehouses, where people can buy tickets to watch. A series of small, shed-like roofs are set up for the competition, where skilled contenders must compete by the stripping the old shingles off and installing new ones on. You are judged based on quality and speed. If you have a high speed, but your craftsmanship is lacking, you are deducted points.
Bernie Vlietstra has won dozens of awards at these competitions, but in past 3 years, he won the entire championship twice! Check out the photos from when he was dubbed "Grand Master Roofer" for 2018 and 2020.
