President's Message

Ideal Roofing was founded in 1929 by my great uncle Émile Laplante and today, the company continues to be owned and operated by members of our family. Along with my brother Claude Laplante, Co-Owner and Vice-President of Production and Human Resources, and a team of devoted and talented managers, we are all dedicated in providing our clientele, often family businesses like us, quality products supported by superior service. In fact, our company goal is as follows: "Ideal Roofing shall continuously improve to meet or exceed our customers' expectation on time and every time".

We realize at Ideal Roofing that our customers have many options when it comes to choosing their supplier of metal roofing, steel building products, steel deck or their steel service centre. That is why our company endeavors to instill in all our employees that our customers are our number one priority.

In late 2014, Ideal Roofing introduced its new "Junior HF", a steel panel from the same family as our prestigious H-F Series. Designed and manufactured primarily for residential and light commercial buildings, with a thinner thickness of steel, from a narrower blank width and clad with our standard Perspectra PLUS Series / Weather XL paint system, this economical hidden fastener roofing panel is surpassing our most optimistic projection in sales. So much so that Ideal Roofing is increasing its production capacity for this product and is awaiting a new roll former with an in line roller leveler to be installed this summer (2016) in a newly extended building.

Last year in August 2015, we launched our new expanded series of our Urban Accent. These will be four new variations of our 12 inch Urban Accent and can be seen on our website in the "Building Products" section. Ideal Roofing was happy to supply the new "La Nouvelle Scène Theatre" at 333 King Edward Street in downtown Ottawa with 3 models of our new Urban Accent Series namely the; UA 1200, UA 1101 and UA 0804. These newly introduced variations of the Urban Accent will enable us to get more business in the commercial, industrial and institutional construction markets.

Whether you are considering our Wakefield Bridge, our very popular Ameri-Cana panel or any of our many roofing or siding products for your home, cottage or business, examine what your building will look like with combinations of panels and colours by using our "Ideal Concepteur" via our website.

As you can see, Ideal Roofing continues to invest in the development of new products and new production equipment to improve our service and to expand our product line which adds value to our relationships with our clientele.

I am also proud of our 250 employees in Ottawa, Brampton, Quebec City and the United States of America without whom; our success would not be possible. Among our employees, we count 88 who have over 10 years of experience in our company and 43 who have celebrated their 25 year anniversary of service at Ideal Roofing. Their experience and know how are important assets when adding new machinery, making changes in operations, training new employees and seeking recommendations.

We thank you for visiting our website and for the interest shown in our company.
