2020 - President's Message COVID-19

Like all of you, our lives at Ideal Roofing have been affected by the COVID-19 Pandemic. We thank all health care workers for their hard work often in hazardous environments and also the employees of Ideal Roofing for adapting to modified work methods and schedules to practice social distancing.

As per the Government of Ontario’s list of essential workplaces, Ideal Roofing has remained open.


  1. Business that extract, manufacture, process and distribute goods, products, equipment and materials, including businesses that manufacture inputs to other manufacturers, (e.g. primary metal/steel, blow molding, component manufacturers, chemicals, etc. that feed the end-product manufacturer), regardless of whether those other manufacturers are inside or outside of Ontario, together with businesses that support and facilitate the movement of goods within integrated North American and global supply chains.

Though some companies and organizations have postponed investments, Ideal Roofing continues with its plan to add production capacity, enhance efficiency, improve quality and to extend its product offering.

In fact, Ideal Roofing installed a new dedicated roll former to produce its popular Junior H-F hidden fastener roofing panel. This roll former will improve efficiency in the production of Urban Accent, Heritage Series panel and Junior H-F by eliminating time lost changing dies and roll-rafts.

We are also proud to announce the launch of our new Galanta Steel Siding. This new panel is destined for residential and light commercial building and is the only steel panel of its kind to have an attractive wood grain embossing that makes the flat part of the panel more rigid and prevents oil canning.

Last but not least, Ideal Roofing has also invested in a state of the art "Slitter" capable of slitting and reducing pre-painted, galvanized and galvalume coils for either re-sale to its steel service centre clientele or for its in house production needs. This new high tech slitter will be installed in September 2020 in our Ottawa facility.

As I said earlier, the COVID-19 Pandemic is a world-wide disaster that has an impact on all of us. We realize at Ideal Roofing that this virus is a threat to all of us and until there is a vaccine available, measures to reduce the spread must continue. Please let us know if you have personnel or organizational health and safety procedures to be followed by our company when dealing with yourself or your organization.

On behalf of Ideal Roofing’s 300 employees in Ottawa, Brampton and Quebec City, thank you for the interest you have shown in our company and its products by visiting our website.

Stay safe,

René Laplante
President & C.E.O.
