In memory of Wade Wagar

On October 1, 2011, Wade Wagar, the owner of Macbeth Roofing, passed away of cancer. Wade was a long standing work colleague of the Klondike Contracting team and a great friend to all of us who were blessed for having known him. His larger than life exuberant personality, love of people and incredible appreciation for life will forever remain in our hearts.

We will all miss Wade’s ability to make us laugh with his zany one-liners and incredibly upbeat and positive energy. His appreciation for life was infectious! It did not matter how busy we were, whenever Wade called he always managed to put a smile on our face!

All of us at Macbeth and Klondike truly miss our friend “Air D” – the name Wade often liked to be called in consideration of himself as a modern day superhero, which he truly was. He really loved helping people in need, especially in his chosen profession, always coming to the rescue by bringing an immediate stop to the water coming into his clients’ homes. When Wade or one of his crew members was on the job, you knew you were in good hands & did not have to worry!

Wade was also an amazing father and husband. His love for his wife Cindylee & two sons Matthew & Scott radiated from within his heart and all over his face. Wade was a great man that we all deeply respected for his tireless work ethic, integrity, appreciation of people and love of life! We are all better human beings for having known him. Although his time on earth was cut short, his impact will be forever felt in our hearts!

We all miss you Air D – our real life superhero!

We have set up a memorial fund in Wade’s honour.

2 Ply Torch-on Roof at BMO, Vancouver

2-ply SBS roof system – also known as Torch-on Roofs – is one of the most popular commercial roofing systems which involves torched layers of polyester and fiberglass reinforced SBS membrane. This roofing system provides a durable and affordable solution for our commercial customers. To complete this project, we had to break up 3 inches thick of large concrete pavers over the entire area in order to remove the existing EPDM membrane.

We are proud to have had the opportunity in installing a 2ply system for the Bank of Montreal in downtown Vancouver. This project involved a standard system installed over drywall and metal Q-deck. Although technical in nature, the project went smoothly & to our client’ satisfaction despite a few challenges with the weather!!!
