Zach's degree in Architecture and minor in Construction Management from the University of Washington has added insight into the trades and in business, and has proven to add valuable knowledge in his chosen career. And, although Ken chose to stick with roofing instead of persuing a higher education, he is a product of the same gene pool, and has similar ideals as Zach. They believe that aesthetics and function go hand in hand, which is why they guarantee a finished roof that will not only keep you and your family in the dry, but one that will stand apart from other roofs for a long time.
Ken and/or Zach personally perform all consultations, and both are on site for every job from start to finish, overseeing that the job is completed to their high expectations. Their attention to detail and experience of seeing literally thousands of jobs through to completion, allow for a smooth and timely transition from old roof to new, leaving little to be desired.

"We have only good things to say about you and your team. You took on every aspect of installing our new roof very professionally. We were impressed with the special care you took with protecting the shrubs and flower beds. Our new roof looks wonderful, and we would recommend KJR Roofing to anyone that is looking to have roof work done. Even our neighbors were impressed with you and your team." -Pedro and Linda H. August 2010
"I would definitely recommend them and have given their name to all of my neighbors who need roofs"
-Richard W. January 2011
"Last year, Zach Reed and his crew did a great job putting on a new roof on our family's home. We called him out because, 3 years prior, he had done a great job re-roofing a rental home we own. Both times they were professional and timely, and provided friendly service that we've come to expect and appreciate. We've recommended his company to family, friends and neighbors."
-John and Amy P. May 2011
"KJR Roofing has done all my roofs over the last 5 years. As a General Contractor, I make my living on referrals and so the sub-contractors I use on my jobs are a direct reflection on me and my company. I have used them on numerous projects and have referred them to many of my friends who just needed a roof done. I can say with confidence that they are always on the jobs, never walk away from a problem, are competitively priced and my customers and friends love their workmanship and professionalism. Good, reliable roofers are hard to find... I know this because I have been in business for 32 years and Zach and Ken are the best roofers I have worked with in my career." -Bruce C. General Contractor/ Commercial & Residential
“Zach Reed and his crew renewed my mid-century modern home with a crisp new composition roof last summer. KJR did a beautiful, first-rate job from start to finish. The flashing details around the fireplace, valleys and vents were skillfully fabricated and carefully installed. The crew worked efficiently, took great care to protect the house and yard, and thoroughly cleaned-up afterwards. Zach has a background in architecture and a keen appreciation for both craft and detail. I enthusiastically recommend Zach Reed and the KJR crew. “
-Rob P. August 2011
"Zach and Ken did a fabulous job on our home and I am very pleased with the results. The decision to put cedar shakes back on this house was absolutely the best decision and this house really shines as a result of your efforts. We have been restoring this old house for a number of years now and this new cedar shake roof that Zach and Ken installed has elevated the beauty of our home tremendously. Their professionalism, diligence at keeping my yard & home clean during the tear off, passion with regards to installing the new cedar shakes, excitement at installing the beautiful piece of copper and overall skills in seeing the job through to completion are to be congratulated and applauded. You can rely on me for a recommendation any time."
-Gene O. October 2012
"The roof looks great! Thank you so much for the amazing job you both did. I was impressed with you both from start to finish. The estimate was spot on and as a business owner I appreciate that. I will definitely recommend your company to all my friends, family and business contacts. Thank you again."
-Lisa C. March 2013
"Thank you both for the fine roofing job. It is difficult to find a company these days that is easy to work with and sets high standards for itself."
-Tom and Karen S. May 2013
"Ken and Zach are KJR roofing. They did the estimate and all the work. This probably was the reason their bid came in below others in spite of their their doing essentially all the work that were in other bids. I also chose them for the work because they had come out earlier in the summer very promptly on an emergency to fix a leak that had developed on my roof.
They were very efficient, clean and professional. They took the time to answer questions and explain what they were doing. All in all a very positive experience."
-Mayumi Y. July 2014
"Fantastic to work with from start to finish!!"
-Michael D. August 2014
"Smooth, finished in time in 4 days by two guys.
The new roof looks good."
-Jiexin L. September 2014
"They gave a quote that was reasonable, performed the work as scheduled. The roof looks great and has a greater quality of appearance than the previous roof installation. We have had heavy rain and high wind and the roof didn't leak or fly away."
-Ira S. December 2014
"I had an unexpected roof failure last winter -- as in rain very unexpectedly running down the living room wall. I thought it was where the roof joined the fireplace. I asked three companies for bids and met all three estimators at the house. Zach with KJR was by far the best throughout the process. He climbed on the roof and did a thorough inspection. Since I'm too old to climb up there and had had a "roof inspection" the summer before and was told the roof would last another 3-5 years, I was skeptical of the problem. Zach took photos with his cell phone and walked me through the whole process. Their estimate was the lowest. We worked around rain, snow, and work schedules to get the job completed in a timely manner. They were always clear, accurate, and on time. They did a very nice job cleaning up afterwards including removing misc roofing and nails from driveway, walkways, and flowerbeds. The roof is now 11 months old and working great, and looking good. I highly recommend them."
-Teri F. November 2015
"KJR roofing did an outstanding job installing a new roof on our home. The cost estimate was very competitive and we were impressed that Ken and Zach, who are expert roofers, do all of the work themselves. They were responsive to our questions, and performed the job quickly and with exceptional care, right on time. The new roof looks great!"
-Scott P. April 2015
"After gathering several quotes for a roof replacement on our cottage lake rambler we called KJR and we are extremely glad we did. They came very highly referred from a general contractor that works with my wife. Their price was competitive and their overall value far exceeded the competition. The overall bid was strong and it was clear from the start that Zach and his brother knew their stuff. Their style is much more about high quality work and solid value than flashy brochures and slick sales people.
The work was completed quickly and efficiently with their two person crew. They always kept the roof protected during any bad weather and the job site was always left in great shape. They are great guys and were extremely good to work with. The roof looks amazing!
If you are looking for a new roof, give KJR a call. You will be glad you did."
-James D. February 2016
"These guys were excellent and had great prices, make sure to include when you request quotes! The roof looks great and all the details like the flashing and vents are nicely done. KJR is unusual in that the guys who show up for the quote are the same guys who do ALL the work, making it much more likely there is no miscommunication."
