Let a Skylight Shed Light on Any Situation…

By |January 29th, 2011|Uncategorized|Comments Off on Let a Skylight Shed Light on Any Situation…

“Anyone’s life truly lived consists of work, sunshine, exercise, plenty of fresh air, and a happy contented spirit.” — Lillie Langtry

This week on the Blackmore job in Seattle, Jorve is installing a custom 14 panel ridge-over skylight with operable panels as a part of the roofing project. When completed, our work will result in not only a great roof, but plenty of interior sunshine, fresh air and a happy contented homeowner spirit.

Interior daylighting can include standard skylights with finished shafts, custom structural units, skywalls and even simple light tunnels such as Solatubes*. We’ve never met a customer who didn’t love having made the decision to bring natural light into their home; let the sunshine in!

Bob Really Likes Us!

“I know what professionals look like, and the crew on my roof right now – they’re professionals.” — Bob, Matthews Beach, Seattle.

Bob is originally from Long Island, NY and is now renting the house his daughter (who lives up the street) owns here in Seattle. Bob used to do carpentry work on boats, in his day, and stated that he definitely has an eye for quality work and professionalism. He’s a very outspoken man and was more than willing to share his feelings about the current project that Jorve was in the midst of. He’s seen a lot of construction work done; he’s done a lot of construction work; and as he said outright: “I know what professionals look like, and the crew on my roof right now — they’re professionals.”

He was so pleased with the work he was seeing, that he began documenting the process with his camera. He even decided that it was something everyone should know about and be able to see as he saw, and gave us a copy of the pictures to use as we saw fit. Feel free to peruse Bob’s photos that were taken while William and his crew tore off the old roof and put the new one on!

“Jorve started a couple days ago and have still been coming out even with the rain. They got all the materials up on the roof today and even had the time to help my wife carry her groceries into the house from the car. They’re really nice people.” — Mr. Erlandsen, North Seattle

Snowman Leftovers

These snowmen were holding on to what little cold lingered in the Leschi air down by Lake Washington. The snow hit us hard on Tuesday night, but didn’t put up much of a fight to stick around. Nonetheless, it provided some excitement, definitely gave the newsroom something to talk about, and managed to cover most everything in the greater Seattle area. Hope everyone’s roof held up — let us know if we can help at all.

Above the Norm

By |January 6th, 2011|Uncategorized|Comments Off on Above the Norm

This is Norm Hoglund … he’s hilarious, really nice, and seems to become friends with just about everyone he meets. He also happens to be Jorve’s top representative, which is possibly due to his likeable demeanor, but also his commitment to excellent service and personable relationships; with Norm you know you’ve met a guy who actually cares about you, your family and your home. You’d be surprised how often Norm provides a simple service or repair free of charge just because it’s in his nature to help. He is a fine example of Jorve’s commitment to doing every job right and with the customer in mind. Thorough inspections and honest answers are where things get started with Jorve.

Here’s another interesting story involving Norm from a little while back, check it out:
