SUNVEK is owned by two brothers. Started in 2001 as Skytop, Inc., we originally focused on new custom homes. As the residential market boomed, we grew right along with it, hiring additional work crews as needed. We installed tile, slate, foam, metal and shingles on both new and existing structures. In 2006, as the new housing market began to decline, we actively moved into the re-roofing market, and later acquired rights to the name “SUNVEK”. Because SUNVEK is so well known, we elected to do business under that name.
Today most of our work is in the area of residential and commercial re-roofing and maintenance. We replace tile underlayment, install new shingle roofs, replace or recoat existing foam roofs, and perform general roof maintenance. We still install tile, and for commercial roofs also install TPO. We have thousands of customers across the Valley, and continue to grow as the service needs increase.
One brother serves the company as President. He is a certified public accountant (CPA) and has a master’s degree in business administration (MBA). He previously worked in public accounting and corporate restructuring, and uses that background in guiding the company in day-to-day activities. The other brother has worked in the roofing industry for 33 years, starting out as one of SUNVEK’s original employees. He serves the company as General Manager, overseeing work schedules and ensuring that materials are ordered.
In general, the steps that occur are as follows:
• The signed contract is recorded as a job in our computer system and a job file is set up.
• Your down payment is recorded and deposited
• The job file is given to a Production Manager to pre-check your roof and determine what materials will be needed to properly complete the contract. The pre-check is typically done within a week of receipt of the contract
• Materials are ordered and the work is scheduled
• A crew may be scheduled to clean or remove your existing roof system (known as a “tear-off”).
• Where tear-offs are involved, this may delay actual work since we contract with other companies to do full tear-offs. They have the specialized equipment, trained personnel and insurance for this type of work.
• This is followed by a crew that prepares your roof for installation of the new roof. This might include the supplier delivering and loading material on your roof.
• The scheduled roof work is done
• An invoice and warranty are issued for the work performed
• A Production Manager or the estimator with whom you originally met walks the roof to ensure that the work is complete
• Final payment is received for the work performed
Having been in the Phoenix area for the last 47 years and the last 43 of those as a General Contractor, I feel compelled to write to exclaim my astonishment as to the voracity of your firm. Skytop installed the roof to the house that I built. During these last 8 years or so you have serviced this roof in outstanding fashion, never giving up on the coating problem that turned out to be manufacturer caused. Eric has represented Skytop in admiral professional fashion. Your company has now after 9 years and some months has returned to recoat my entire roof with a matrix to assure a lasting project. Bravo. The technician workers sent to the house were knowledgeable and very respectful not to mention hard working, you should be proud. I recommend Skytop for any project they may be considered for and remain available at the number for any discussion on this reputable company.

I had SUNVEK fix and recoat roofs of three of my rental properties. The roof consultant was great – very thorough and took the time to explain the scope of the work to be done. A production manager walked the roof, and talked with me about the roofing process, answering the questions I had. The work crew cleaned the flat roofs, removed blisters in the foam and filled them in, then ground down the high areas in the roofs. After the preparation and repair work, the crews coated the roofs with two layers of elastomeric coating, and now the roofs look like new again.
This company was previously Skytop Roofing. They installed my foam roof on a spec house I purchased. After 3 or 4 years they returned at my request for an inspection ad said it was still in very good condition. This year I knew it was time for some repairs and coating. I could not find their card or phone number so I called two other roofers for repairs and coating. One company did the repairs for $1200.00. They both had given me estimates for coating that I thought were a bit too much. Finally I called SUNVEK and discovered it was a name change from Skytop. The estimator came out and sent me a quote within six hours. They were also the most reasonable and $1000.00 less than the other two. They came the following monday and did all the repairs the other company had done wrong. They refoamed the bad spots, sanded them off and power washed the roof. The following Wednesday they sprayed on the bright white coating and back rolled the roof. There was no mess what so ever, and everything was cleaned up and hauled away. I have been a contractor all my life (electrical) and do not recommend a contractor unless I have a very good experience with them. This company is that good. 100% satisfied and highly recommend.
To Whom It May Concern: I am completely satisfied with every aspect of this roof repair process. First, I want to commend Mike Townsend for his ability to communicate clearly, to act professional in every aspect, and to follow up on promises made. This is the second roof repair in the last year and each time he has been a joy to work with. Thank you for taking care of all the problems – so far, so good! The gentleman that took care of repairs and painting in the laundry area did a great job – we’re pleased. It’s nice doing business with people that stand behind their work.
I felt I had to add a note to tell you how pleased I was with your company and service. From my first panic-stricken call to the final cleanup, I was pleasantly surprised. Considering the problem to be a crisis I quickly chose your name from the Yellow Pages, with no past experience with roofing matters. I’m glad I did. You kept me up-to-date cheerfully and, once the rain stopped, the work was done quickly and efficiently. This is just a big “Thank You” from a satisfied customer. I will recommend you to my friends.
I would like to officially comment on the performance of SUNVEK, Inc., with whom I contracted to re-roof my residence. It took a while to test the integrity of their work due to the dry spell Phoenix has experienced, but when a couple of leaks finally materialized, SUNVEK responded promptly. The source of the leak was in an area that had leaked previously and gave the appearance of being suitable for a simple overcoat, so I do not challenge SUNVEK’s workmanship for the problem. The thing that was so unique was the attitude displayed by all of SUNVEK’s employees to solve the problem. It was as though they were shocked and personally embarrassed that their performance may be inconveniencing me. And they responded accordingly. I spent an entire career in procurement. It is a ‘given’ that despite the best laid plans, a falure will occur now and then. The variable is the supplier’s response to the problem. Unfortunately it sometimes comes in various degrees of denial. But certainly not in this instance. SUNVEK’s positive response was so refreshing I felt it necessary to commend them. I am so happy that I chose them to do my work.
Great experience! I had been looking to re-roof after hail damage. Being out of state, I had a hard time finding a contractor, let alone one who was fully licensed and had workman’s comp. The entire project from start to finish was handled with promptness and thoroughness. Their communication was excellent and the work was above average. Highly recommend!
I just wanted to compliment your organization; specifically Dan. He is one of the most conscientious contractors I have had the pleasure of working with lately. He has gone above and beyond to repair the inferior previous work on the walk-deck and obviously takes great pride in what he does. His workmanship is top quality and I really appreciate it. You and the rest of your team were communicative and did a great job. Ben showed as scheduled and he and his helper made every effort to complete the roof coating efficiently and aesthetically. Because of the workmanship of Dan and your team, I intend to use your company again on a home I am breaking ground on next month.
The company did a fantastic job. They showed up on time and the adjuster felt the bid was in reason. I would refer them to my best friends and neighbors.
My favorite CopperPlus project was provided by Skytop, Inc. in Phoenix, AZ. The home is in Desert Mountain, AZ. One photo doesn’t do justice to this installation. You have to see this home from all sides to fully appreciate it.

Thanks for the wonderful work completed by Jason and his assistants. They did a beautiful job that will always be treasured. Jason is a hard working, extremely skilled Copper installer. We really appreciated having him complete our project.
Since SUNVEK foamed the roof of my home, my electric bills have dropped by anywhere from $33-40 per month compared to the prior year. It feels better in the house, along with being quieter. The temperature remains more constant, so my home feels more comfortable. The SUNVEK crew did a wonderful job on my roof.
Dear Mr. Skoog:
We met at my property in Las Palomas. I had called about a roof leak. Your company had performed a re-roofing on the homes in the development after the gigantic hailstorm had damaged all the roofs in the development. So I called SUNVEK about the leak. You appeared to evaluate and/or repair the leak as necessary. As it turned out, after a brief inspection, you determined the leak was the result of leaves blocking one of the scuppers which was supposed to allow the drainage of water from the roof. The water, blocked from appropriate drainage, backed up inside the scupper, rising to an internal level higher than the scuppers seal system. Woe was me! So, this letter is a delayed THANK YOU. Although the leak had nothing to do with the re-roofing work your company had performed, you did a thorough investigation of the scupper seals, the leak, and assured me to worry not. You told me as long as you were here, you would, if possible, remediate the problem. And so it appears … fix it, you did! You climbed to the roof, spent over about an hour clearing assorted debris the scuppers, cutting and trimming old failed sealant from the scuppers, and re-calked all the flashing inside the scupper. Though I offered, you refused any payment for service. And, again, none of the roof leak issues were your responsibility. None! But that didn’t matter to you. You were there, had the tools and know-how, and provided care and repair. Again, THANK YOU. It has been my experience, most businesses seek ways to dodge responsibilities after they have received payment. Not you, not SUNVEK. I was more than impressed. And I feel I had an enjoyable conversation with you about our respective children and the joy of engaging in activities with our children. So, you also provided me with a most pleasurable 1-1.5 hour conversation. THANK YOU! Yet again. I have told this story to my Realtor and through her, an office full of other Realtors. The story of my scupper repair, the good cheer in which the repair was provided, and about the man of notable internal ethic who owns the company, who showed up himself because his roof technicians were all committed to other work. WOW! I have recommended that SUNVEK be listed on all that offices’ Realtor personnel rolodex’s for any issue of roofing for all their clientele. THANK YOU!
