Joseph LaFleche and his son Peter formed the business in the early 1960’s as a general contracting company located in London, Ontario. After Joe’s passing in 1968, Peter ran the operation as sole owner, gradually shifting the focus of the company towards waterproofing and roofing services. LaFleche Roofing was incorporated in 1974, with roofing service having become the prime focus of operations. As time went on an increasing emphasis on the industrial/commercial/institutional roofing market occurred, and by 1980, the firm had moved right out of the residential marketplace.
In the 1980’s LaFleche Roofing Ltd. enhanced its reputation of quality and expertise in low-slope roofing services. A satellite operation centered in the Barrie-Orillia, Ontario area was launched in 1983, extending our service area north of Toronto.
In 1992, LaFleche Roofing (1992) Ltd. was incorporated, with Peter and his sons Mark and Chris, as co-owners. This change reflected the role that Mark and Chris had by then began to assume, after learning the business through working first on the roofs, then in management functions. In 2003, Mark Garland, General Manager of the Barrie-Orillia division, became part-owner as well.
Today, the senior management at LaFleche Roofing (1992) Ltd. Is as follows: Chris LaFleche, President and General Manager – London Division, Mark Garland, Vice-President and General Manager – Orillia Division, Mark LaFleche, Vice-President, and Administrator, and Peter LaFleche, past-President and Customer Relations.
