Tim Demers, Owner/Operator
Born and raised in Guelph, Tim Demers has more than 20 years of progressive professional experience in the roofing industry with a specialty in the unique art of flat roofs. This has resulted in an unmatched, specialized expertise in the unique requirements of flat roofing systems. He is familiar with all aspects of roofing and has navigated dozens of complicated challenges that demanded problem solving and creativity to deliver a reliable solution.
Tim built most of his career rising through the ranks of a large roofing contractor, eventually becoming a shareholder and Vice President, leading the flat roof division which he grew exponentially over the years.
Tim realized his vision of running a different kind of roofing business: a smaller, premium supplier catering to residential and commercial clients looking for the best possible quality of workmanship, service and professionalism. FS Roof Systems was launched in 2020 and immediately became a go-to partner for many clients.
His philosophy is to give customers what they need, want, and deserve. From maintenance to replacement, their needs are his first priority. Tim works closely with his customers to implement affordable ongoing maintenance programs that will identity and prevent costly or even catastrophic situations or replacements. Much like your car, he says, a flat roof needs regular inspection and the occasional ‘tune up’ to prevent mishaps.
Equally comfortable on the job site or in a customer’s board room or kitchen table, Tim prides himself on being personally involved in every FS Roof Systems project.
