1974-2024

A Message from Our President & CEO

It is hard to believe that five decades have passed since our then, small roofing company began.

In the early seventies, typical of the times, we were young men sporting long hair, bell bottom pants, and were beginning to take our knocks, as our journey into becoming businessmen began in earnest. As most young entrepreneurs do; we learned the hard way, never giving up, working to establish sound business practices, and attempting to grow our business.

People began to trust and appreciate the type of work that our company produced, which included a great deal of cedar shingle and shake retrofits, slate roofing, copper work, and of course asphalt shingles which were the most popular product choice of the time.

The roofing community of the day in Toronto was a small one, comprised of many old timers; and us a bunch of hippies in a bread truck, trying to make a go of things. Ironically; over the decades, many of our now competitors began as installers working for Avenue Road Roofing. We are proud of the fact that we have maintained friendships and cooperative dealings in the GTA roofing community, and eventually throughout Canada. Our original supplier; Spar Marathon, has remained our loyal supplier for all of these years, owned by the Glynn family. They have over one hundred years of history in the Toronto roofing industry going back to the days of the horse and buggy.

As Toronto grew, so did our operation. We were privileged to have serviced many distinguished Torontonians, and supplied exterior services in both the residential and commercial /industrial business sectors.

As time passed, our referrals began to include people from all over the emerging GTA. We had clients that had their parents use us decades previously. We were told that everyone recognized our white trucks with big blue letters, throughout the city.

Today, Avenue Road Roofing is stronger than ever, with a permanent 16,000 Sq. Ft. office and warehouse facility located in central Toronto. With experienced estimators and our seasoned production staff; our team successfully completes over one thousand projects each year.

The success of AVENUE ROAD ROOFING® is owed in great part to the support of you; our loyal customers over many decades. We are also grateful to our dedicated staff who are the people that do the work day in and day out; year after year.

To show our appreciation, and to thank our valued clients and staff; I wanted us to give back to the community that has supported us, and continues to support us into our next fifty years.

As a result; we are committed to collecting 50,000 lbs. of food and toys by December 13th 2024 which we will share with our community partners in the GTA.

Together we can provide a little help for our fellow citizens that struggle with food insecurity, and economic uncertainty in these unprecedented times of high living costs.

Please accept my gratitude for the people of Toronto and beyond that have supported and helped us to feed our families over the past five decades.

Sincerely Yours:
Tony Pateropoulos
