Welcome to 2024! The Elite Roofing team wishes every one of our customers a happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year. As a business with deep roots in Toronto, we value the local business community’s trust in our integrity, craftsmanship, and customer care. We also extend our gratitude to our suppliers and other partners who have accommodated and supported us in so many ways.

We trust that 2024 will be even better with even better new opportunities!
Some of our most satisfying roofing projects require creative solutions.
Residential Complex in Toronto
A new multi-unit residential complex at 41 and 51 Brookwell Drive featured our ability to plan for buildings occupied by tenants and adapt to many challenges. We met our goals thanks, in part, to our project management skills, along with expertise in carefully scheduling and coordinating with other construction vendors.
Multi-Unit Industrial Development, Aurora
Our work for a new multi-unit industrial development in Aurora, near Toronto, faced a series of external challenges beyond our control. Logistics, harsh weather, supply chain shortages, and rapid price escalations all played a part. Our expertise, project management skills, strong relationships with suppliers all contributed to our completing work on-time and within budget.
We believe in giving back to our community.
Volunteering for Second Harvest of Toronto: One of our favorite community service projects is hands-on volunteering with Second Harvest Food Bank of Toronto. This unique organization finds and “rescues” surplus food. It uses its distribution network to provide it to Canadians experiencing food insecurity.
This past year, seven Elite employees (including Isaac and Howard Glowinsky) sorted an incredible 985 pounds for distribution to Canadians in need. You can donate or learn more about this worthy organization.

Don’t Put Off Repairs—Act While the Sun is Shining
The foundation of this article is an especially pertinent quote by John F. Kennedy, “The time to repair the roof is when the sun is shining.” The interpretation we discuss is the importance of being proactive about fixing things when times are good—not just for roofing, but in our personal lives. We discuss needing to be proactive in building stronger relationships, acting on social issues, and focusing on personal growth.
