Quality and Experience

Trudel & Sons Roofing
Written by Robert Hoshowsky

When it comes to roofing, many companies exist but not all are created equal. To stand apart from the others, requires decades of experience, skilled staff, responsibility to customers and an unwavering commitment to quality and safety from start to finish. At family-operated Trudel & Sons Roofing Ltd., the team of professionals has proudly served the needs of customers for over thirty-five years.
Based in the historic town of Stouffville, Ontario, Trudel & Sons Roofing continues to distinguish itself from the competition with every residential, commercial or industrial project.

The staff of approximately 200 full-time workers at Trudel & Sons – including service professionals and site supervisors – is extremely well-trained in the installation of a range of roofing products. Employees are unionized and are in compliance with the WSIB, the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board. In an industry where safety is paramount, experienced staff conduct themselves with the highest degree of professionalism and safety. The company also offers peace of mind to its customers by being fully covered for all potential property damage, including general and automobile.

The company realizes a roof is much more than protection: it also serves as a reflection of an owner’s style and taste. From its 15,000 square foot building and warehouse, the company is a one-stop-shop, able to meet the roofing needs of all clients with the necessary experience, products and a range of samples on hand.

Trudel & Sons supplies and installs much more than asphalt roofing, handling many roofing types with expertise. The company installs roofs made from cedar, Enviroshake, metals such as copper and both real and imitation slate – the imitation slate is less expensive than real slate and engineered to last for decades. In addition, it installs two-ply and four-ply vinyl decking for flat roofs.

The company’s roofing solutions include re-roofing and roof repairs as well as an expansive range of related services: residential and commercial roof maintenance, roof cleaning, leaf and debris removal, gutter cleaning, waterproofing, chimney protection, waterproofing and deck coatings. It also supplies and installs conventional skylights and Velux Sun Tunnel tubular skylights, which are ideal for introducing natural light to hallways, closets, and other locations.

Available in different thicknesses and a range of colors, styles, textures and designs, metal roofing is not only sturdy, but extremely stylish. Today’s metal roofs complement all styles of homes.

Working with suppliers such as Vicwest, Color Steels and Ideal Roofing, the company provides roofs of two categories, standing seam and decorative, depending on the preference of the consumer. As well as being manufactured in traditional vertical seam profiles, metal roofs are also available to resemble other roofing products, including clay tiles, shingles, wooden shakes or slate.

These metal roofs are painted with weather-resistant, siliconized polyester baked on at the factory, making them not only extremely attractive but durable and able to withstand extreme weather conditions such as snow and hail.

Metal roofs have a reduced lifecycle cost when compared to many other roofing material products. Metal can be installed over existing roofs, is very long-lasting, requires little maintenance and adds value to a home. The roofs can also save energy costs and are made from thirty to sixty percent recycled materials. Depending on the manufacturer, residential metal roofs can have a warranty of up to fifty years, and since they are fireproof, metal roofs can also lower home insurance costs.

Trudel & Sons’ flat roof capabilities include green roofing systems, liquid applied roofing systems, thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) and ethylene propylene diene terpolymer (EPDM) roofs, hot fluid applied roofing systems, and traditional built-up roofing systems created by layering roof felts and laminating them together with bitumen.

When it comes to installing a new flat roof or repairing an existing system, it is critical to use skilled workers who are experienced with appropriate solutions and products. Able to identify flat roof problems quickly and efficiently, Trudel & Sons prides itself on presenting customers with the best possible options at competitive prices.

In some cases of flat roof leakage, poor drainage is the culprit, and Trudel & Sons’ capabilities includes repairs, replacement of flashing, repair and restoration of torch-down roofs, repairs of PVC roofs, application of restorative roof coatings, repairing defects in flashing, and more. The company services all flat roof systems from EPDM membrane roofs and vinyl decking to SBS (styrene-butadiene-styrene) modified bitumen roofs, TPO roofing and Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) membrane roofing products.

Trudel & Sons has decades of experience working with clients on large commercial roofing projects. It inspects existing roofs to identify and perform repairs and works with flat or pitched roofs. As leaders in the industry, Trudel & Sons can advise on the best solutions for new installations or repairs. The experts at Trudel & Sons are aware of the latest innovations in the industry and can install solutions which are reasonably priced and durable, such as those created from rubber polymer blends.

The company uses a range of high-quality flat roofing products from sources such as Firestone, Soprema, TuffDek, Duradek, GAF, DecTec and Carlisle SynTec.

Since much of the work is carried out in-house at the company’s workshop, quality products precisely made-to-measure are never an issue. With all the necessary machinery and equipment, Trudel & Sons’ in-house, highly knowledgeable staff also create decorative copper and wrought iron. Custom metal products for barrel roofs, porch roofs and bay windows and skylights are never a problem, as the company can handle all complementary roofing projects, including soffit and fascia.

Where some companies replace only one type of roof or have to subcontract gutters, eavestroughing and aluminum and vinyl trim to others, Trudel & Sons does it all. The company also installs and repairs aluminum and vinyl siding and ornamental details.

Using quality products from leading manufacturers such as Kaycan, Gentek and James Hardie, the company adds both beauty and functionality to any property. It can remove and replace old aluminum or vinyl siding, perform aluminum siding repairs, install new siding, aluminum trims and components, ornamentals and even matching soffits, fascia, gutters and eavestroughing. This type of work requires a considerable amount of skill and all siding installers are fully equipped and trained to take on all projects.

One of Ontario’s largest roofing contractors, the company is a proud member of the Better Business Bureau, the Greater Barrie Home Builders Association, Durham Home Builders, BILD and the Residential Roofing Contractors Association.

Trudel & Sons unwavering commitment to quality continues to gain it new clients across not only the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), but other locations including those between London, Ottawa and North Bay.
