Galen Kempf

Owner/Certified Installer

Hello, my name is Galen Kempf and I am the owner of FirstLine Roofing Ltd! I was born in Kelowna in 1982 and raised on an acreage in Winfield. My brother Jared and I have been working hard since as far back as either of us can remember. As a result, solid work ethic and a can-do attitude are part of who we are. In 2001 I started my career in the roofing industry and since then I have worked for many of the roofing companies in the area. Over time I have realized that when you are an employee, things are done how the company wants it done. I knew that I liked things done a certain way, and that starting a company of my own was the way to make sure things were always done my way. This is why FirstLine Roofing exists.

Jared Kempf

Certified Installer

Hello, my name is Jared Kempf. I am 34 years old and I have two children; a 3 year old girl, and a 7 year old son. I was born and raised in the Okanagan and grew up in our family orchard.  I like watching hockey as well as playing orthodox baseball in Lake Country; the same league that our father was apart of. I have spent the last 12 years in the Oilfields working on the rigs. However, it was time for a change and that is where my journey with FirstLine Roofing began. I have been roofing side by side with my brother Galen who has been showing me the way to roof properly. No short-cuts and no excuses. I treat every roof as if it were my own. This town is my life, I love where I live and hope everyone appreciates this area as much as I do.
