President's Message

Ideal Roofing was founded in 1929 by my great uncle Emile Laplante and is still today owned and operated by members of our family. With my brother Claude Laplante, Co-Owner and Vice-President of Production and a team of devoted and talented managers, our company is dedicated in providing its customers, for which many are family owned enterprises like ours with quality products along with superior service. In fact, our company's corporate objective reads 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 center. That is why our company endeavors to instill in all our employees that our customers are our number one priority.

Since my last message when we announced the completion of our new manufacturing facility in Brampton Ontario, Ideal has continued to invest in new technology, machinery and new products.

To complete our line of steel deck products, Ideal Roofing now manufacture in Brampton, its new IRD-300 and IRD-301 which are 3" high roof decks and its new ICD-300 and ICD-301 which are 3" high composite deck (floor deck).

With the successful launch of the Wakefield Bridge in 2008, Ideal Roofing is innovating again in the residential roofing market and is introducing its new MontecianoTM steel roofing tile. Ideal Roofing's new Mediterranean-style MontecianoTM roofing tile is designed to replicate the traditional clay or Terra Cotta roofing tiles with their warm and rich red earth tones, combining their unique character, distinguished look and elegance with the durability of high-strength steel roofing. MontecianoTM steel tiles are manufactured from new and recycled steel. Unlike common asphalt shingles made from fossil fuels, they are not subject to the fluctuations of world market oil prices. Unlike discarded asphalt shingles clogging our landfill sites, the MontecianoTM steel tiles are entirely recyclable. Our steel tiles are protected by our proven oven-baked PVDF paint system with Kynar 500® resin and the most advanced «Cool Roof»® solar reflection technology ensuring exceptional protection from solar radiation and reducing the cost of summer air-conditioning.

Ideal maintains a certified ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management System and works diligently to improve the quality of our products and services. An important quality investment in new technology was the acquisition and installation of a next generation roller-leveler on our roll former that produce our popular H-F and Urban Accent series. Thus the H-F and Urban Accent series who both have large flat surfaces without corrugations will be produced with less "oil canning" for a flatter and smoother surface. We feel that Ideal's H-F and Urban Accent already very popular series will become the industry's two best hidden fastener series' panels for roofs and walls respectively.

These investments in technology, machinery and new products are often suggested and then implemented by our employees. Ideal Roofing can boast that it has a very experienced staff with low turnover. Out of our 230 employees in our plants in Ottawa and Brampton and in our office in Quebec City, we have 114 employees with more than 10 years of experience and 52 employees with more than 20 years experience.

To conclude, Ideal Roofing is proud to be able to serve its customers with its company owned and operated fleet of truck in Ontario, Quebec, the Maritime Provinces and the Northeastern United States. We thank you for the interest you have shown in our company and products by visiting our website.
