Ron was quick to get me a quote, and due to the condition of my roof was able to fit me in right away. All my emails were answered immediately and everything was explained thoroughly. The workers were very professional and quick, they were here and gone within a day and a half of work and not a trace of mess was left behind. Highly recommend!

I would highly recommend this business! Mr. Gauthier took the time to answer all of my questions and explain each step of the process. His company replaced the siding, soffits, eavestroughs, and down spouts at my home. The installers were professional, paid attention to detail, and did a thorough clean up.

I have never left a google review in my life. This company deserves one. Let me be blunt, I have never had customer service like this in my life. Unfortunately with our crazy and busy world, customer service is a thing of the past. Not with Ron though. You email him, he is back to you within 5 minutes. When I first talked to him on the phone, it wasn't a quick 3 minute call and move onto to the next quote. I spoke with him on the phone for 20 - 25 minutes at 9 PM on a week night. He goes through every detail of what you want and need. His worker who came out and did the job was amazing. From his craftmanship to cleaning up after, he did the job like it was his own house. I for sure thought I would have to make a down payment. Not with Ron. You pay him when the job is done and your happy. Incredible. I received 3 quotes from 3 different companies and Ron's prices are very competitive but the customer service and details of the project blew away the rest. If you want the best, you call Gauthier Roofing and Siding. Thanks again Ron, Bob Bailey

Ron and the team were very good. We had siding, soffits, facia, and eavestroughs done.Ron was very responsive and responded to all of our questions during the estimating process. He was very thorough and documented everything in the contract. He gave us an approximate time for the work to start. We lucked out, they started early.They clearly communicated what to expect, what you needed to do to prepare along the way. Clearly coordinated the supply deliveries. Once the worker(s) were on site they were methodical, organized, and kept the site very clean at the end of the day. As we had questions, they would walk the site and give recommendations. If they had questions, they would ask and not assume (always the best approach). Ron would always follow-up.The workmanship is excellent. We are very pleased with the results. A true value add to the home. Ron followed up numerous times to ensure everything was done to our satisfaction. If you are looking for a roofing or siding company to do your work, I would recommend Gauthier.

Gauthier roofing replaced our roof, displaying excellent workmanship, very reasonable pricing, quality products and super cleanup, several years ago. They also assisted with a problem from wind damage from a recent storm. Again, they responded with timely resolutions and reasonable pricing to repair, while maintaining quality customer interactions; polite, informative and friendly. I have dealt with other companies in the past and none approach this professional contractor. Wayne

We had a new door installed as well as evestroughs replacement a few years ago and were very satisfied with Gauthier Roofing. So when we had some fascia repairs to be done due to wind damage, they were the first ones I called. Gauthier Roofing has been in business a long time and I found working with Ron who is very professional and knowledgeable made things easy. I recommend Gauthier Roofing.

Had to replace the roof on the pool house. They were very quick and professional.

Everything was cleaned up, no surprises in costs, very fast and professional will be using them again when it is time to do the rest of the house.

I was in the market to have my roof replaced and had consulted a few local businesses for quotes including Gauthier Roofing and Siding. Everyone provided their quotes however this company was the only one who followed up immediately to see if I was satisfied with the quote and if I had any questions. Ron was was extremely thorough and explained everything. Not only was he extremely cordial, I dont think he sleeps because he will answer an email any day or time of the week. The customer service is something I never expected to receive and was ultimately the selling point even though i had quotes that came in lower. The crew that was onsite was amazing and they were clean and polite. They would let me know of issues they encountered and would also send pictures to Ron who would then forward to me. This company is extremely transparent and nothing is hidden in what they say they will do or charge you for. I'm also getting my gutters redone from them and am happy I chose this company. Do yourself a favour and call them first, their customer service, product and workmanship are steps above the rest. Thanks again, Vince

I would recommend Gauthier Roofing to everyone. This was the second time that I referred them and this job in particular was for my moms home. I can't say enough about this company. The communication from the first point of contact was incredible. My mom was impressed with the workers as they were very professional, left the job site clean and spoke with out using vulgar language as they worked all day. When my mom had questions they took the time to answer any of her concerns.This was a stress free experience for my mom and myself from start to finish. The roof looks amazing and my mom continues to receive compliments.Thank you Ron!

Gauthier’s Windsor Roofing FAQ

How can I tell if I need a new roof for my Windsor, ON home?

If organic based (which are no longer manufactured), asphalt shingles were installed 10 to 15 years ago, your roof might be ready for replacement. Some of the warning signs to look for with an asphalt shingle roof are excessive granule loss, curling, cupping, cracked or missing shingles. Signs of interior water damage can also raise a red flag. Sometimes the roof just visually looks old and worn, especially in the valleys. If you live in a neighbourhood where many of the homes have roofs of similar ages, and you’ve noticed that a number of these neighbours have replaced their roofs, then it’s time to take a close look. If unsure if you need a new roof, you can also reach out to a professional roofing contractor.

How much does a new roof cost?

There are several factors involved in the cost of a new roof. The main ones are the material selected, the scope of work, the size/style of the roof and the roofing contractor. A good shingle, as part of a complete roof system, installed by a reputable roofing contractor that has proper insurance coverage, provides a warranty, and an invoice will cost more than the alternatives. Keep in mind that roofing isn’t unlike anything else, in that you get what you pay for. For the majority of homes in the Windsor area, installing a new roof with fibreglass-based laminate style asphalt shingles, along with the rest of the components in the roofing system, by a reputable roofing contractor costs between $4500 and $9500.

How long will it take to replace my Windsor, ON roof?

Most shingle roofs can be replaced in a day or two, but large and/or steep roofs can take more time. A professional Windsor roofing contractor will make sure your roof is protected at the end of each workday so that in the event of rain before the next day, your home is protected. Sometimes factors can add to the time it takes, like rotten wood replacement, weather delays or even how cooperative the old roof is when being removed. Sometimes an old roof peels off nicely in sections and other times, it can be very dry and brittle, breaking into little pieces. It’s essential to put the focus on craftsmanship as opposed to speed.

How long will a new shingle roof last?

This depends on several factors, mainly the material used, the roof’s design (ex. steep vs. shallow pitch), whether a roof system approach is used, if regular maintenance is performed, and the quality of the installation. Weather patterns, as well as how much damage the sun will cause moving forward, are also factors. If an excellent fiberglass-based laminate style asphalt shingle is used as part of a complete roof system (i.e. full underlayment, proper ventilation, coordinated accessories, etc.), then maximum longevity can be achieved. From what we’ve seen in the Windsor area, 20-25 years have been achievable. Time will tell if they can last longer, but realistically not much more would be anticipated. As a side-note, for the price point in relation to other roofing materials (ex. metal, wood, rubber, clay tile, slate, etc.) it’s hard to beat the value of asphalt shingles. Other roofing material options may last twice as long, but they typically cost at least twice as much.

How do fiberglass shingles compare to asphalt shingles?

This is a common question, but it stems from a misconception. Fiberglass shingles are still asphalt shingles. Organic-based asphalt shingles were popular in the past, and these were typically referred to as asphalt shingles. When fiberglass-based asphalt shingles came out, they were usually referred to as fibreglass shingles, giving the impression that one was asphalt and the other fiberglass. In reality, both are asphalt shingles with the difference being the base of the shingle, one being an organic mat (i.e. paper) and the other being a fiberglass mat. Each of these mats (AKA bases), would be saturated in asphalt in the production process. It’s important to note that the organic-based shingles are no longer being manufactured, as their longevity paled in comparison to the fiberglass-based shingles manufactured today, sometimes organics lasted less than ten years.
