A Chartered Accountant with a BA in Commerce and Finance from the University of Toronto, Howard Glowinsky decided if he was going to build a business, it would be his family’s business. Howard joined Elite Roofing in 1995.
Howard learned the roofing trade from his father, who is still an active member of staff. Howard’s current responsibilities include scheduling, administration, estimating, sales, service, quality control and maintenance inspections. He devotes his spare time to his wife Claire and their four children, actively volunteering at his Synagogue, Chabad @ Flamingo, and serving on several charity boards and committees.
Ike Glowinsky has loved the construction site for as far back as he can remember. After attending Ryerson University for Electronics, he made the decision to join Elite Roofing, his father’s company, in 1961. Although roofing was a business he knew well from his family, he started at an entry level as a roofing labourer—shoveling gravel and loading and unloading materials—until he learned all aspects of the trade and began working his way up the ladder.
Today, his current responsibilities include customer relations and estimates; although, he views his most important responsibility as upholding the integrity of the business. Outside of the office and off the job site, he enjoys travelling the world with his wife of over 50 years, Ruth, and spoiling their 9 grandchildren. He is also heavily involved in his Synagogue, a past president of B’nai B’rith Canyon Lodge and a volunteer for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of Canada.
Miguel Marto was first introduced to Ike and Howard Glowinsky in 1996, by his father, who is a retired long time employee of Elite Roofing and Contractors. In the summers of 1996 and 1997, Miguel worked for the company. After graduating from Humber College with a degree in Civil Engineering Environmental Studies, he became a full-time member of the Elite team in 2003.
Miguel’s role is that of a superintendent. He has exceptional communication skills, as well as the ability to speak both English and Portuguese fluently. He enjoys working with different trades, meeting new people and creating new friendships—but the best part of his job is doing something he can be proud of and in which his hard work shows in the end results. On his off days, Miguel can usually be found spending time with his wife Lisa and two children, working around the house or walking his two dogs, Smokey and Bandit.
Roofing has always played a role in Nathan Altomare’s life. He vividly remembers accompanying his father and brother to work during summer breaks. After graduation, he worked as an Oracle trained mainframe database and system access administrator in the group life/health insurance industry. After a few years he decided to make a change. He partnered up with his father and brother and opened a roofing company. In this role he was responsible for all facets of the business, from financing to sales to employee relations. He joined Elite Roofing in 2015 in a sales and marketing role. His responsibilities also include administration of accounts on SalesForce.com as well as preparing and delivering presentations.
During his time off he enjoys travelling with his wife Angela. They both enjoy long driving trips across North America and Europe.
Artur Prazmo has a professional motto he lives by: “Always view the project from the client’s perspective.” It is this attitude that has made him a valuable member of the Elite team since 1999. After graduating from Humber College as a Certified Civil Engineering Technologist, he gained experience in mining, land surveying and design. As such, if there is ever a difficult building to measure, Artur’s surveying skills make him the man for the job. In continuation of these technical skills he currently is a member of the technical committee at OIRCA.
Artur’s responsibilities extend to include coordinating safety training of staff, including such courses as WHMIS, Fall Protection and Propane. He also has strong IT skills and performs regular maintenance on the office computers. An avid skier, diver and hiker, Artur leads an active lifestyle with his wife Anna.

Elite Roofing takes pride in serving the community that has supported it since 1956. The company’s stakeholders uphold these ideals in a variety of ways, including supporting charities through donations of time and money.
Elite Roofing is a supporter of the Canadian Forces by granting scholarships for post-secondary education to young adults in military families through the Support Our Troops program. Many of these students have moved repeatedly across the country, and sometimes across the globe, as their parent’s postings changed within the military. They made many sacrifices along the way and we feel it is our patriotic duty to support them. We love connecting with our scholarship recipients each summer/fall by phone to offer them hope and encouragement in their studies. Learn more about our involvement
