Finance your new roof to avoid the cost of full payment

North Bay Roofing and Exteriors offers expert installation

The dream of home ownership is still one shared by people living in Ontario and across Canada. The cost of home ownership, however, is often making that dream difficult to achieve.

A recent report from RBC indicated that residential construction costs have risen 51 percent since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. The rise in the cost of building materials – everything from concrete and structural steel to lumber and roofing supplies – is reflected in the rising purchase price of homes of all sizes. Adding to the cost are things like rising fuel prices, higher interest rates, and labour shortages in the skilled trade sector.

It's a challenge for all individuals either thinking of buying a new home or upgrading their current home. It’s also the reason why Bay Roofing and Exteriors is offering financing options to make the cost of installing or replacing your roof much easier.


“Ever since the pandemic inflation has really increased the price of materials,” said Mark Weckwerth, owner of Bay Roofing and Exteriors. “It makes it a lot tougher for homeowners to complete roofing projects or any other renovations they’re considering around their home. We offer monthly payment financing which makes it more affordable for homeowner to be able to still get the work done, especially if they’re in an emergency situation.”

Founded in 1984, BAY ROOFING has proudly served Northern Ontario for over 40 years. With new ownership in 2015, the company serves customers from locations in North Bay and Sudbury Ontario. Due to customer demands, Bay Roofing has also added a menu of exterior services such as eavestrough, soffit/fascia, siding, exterior insulation, and window cladding to go along with their certified roofing expertise. Thanks to ongoing training, the team at Bay Roofing and Exteriors is highly qualified in all areas of product installation.


“Bay Roofing and Exteriors Ltd. is recognized as the only credentialed Roofmart IKO Premier Contractor in Northern Ontario,” said Weckwerth. “We are also a Top Level 2 Elite Installer of Alu-Rex continuous hanger systems, certified vinyl siding installer, IKO certified flat roofing installer, and the only Certified Craftsman installer in the area for all shingles.”

Although the price of shingles has gone up, so too has the quality of construction. Weckwerth said most asphalt shingles start with a fiberglass base that allows Bay Roofing to offer a more comprehensive warranty.

“Because we’re top tier certified through the manufacturer, we’re the only company in the area that can offer you a guaranteed 20 year warranty with full coverage,” he said. “With an extended warranty, if a shingle or any of these products fail within 20 years you can have your entire roof replaced. The homeowner is not out of pocket for the repair.”

Now with over 80 seasonal employees, Bay Roofing and Exteriors has a team of passionate installers who take pride in their work and are ready to complete any installation you require. The company also has seven people in the office between the two area locations so there’s always someone there to deal with any issues that may arise. The company was named 2023 Business of the Year in 2023 by the North Bay Chamber of Commerce.
