Empire Roofing Corporation – Master Contractor Platinum


Empire Roofing Corporation started as a dream of a 12 year old boy working at his grandfathers roofing company. Ken Gascoigne, President and Owner of Empire Roofing, comes from a long line of roofing professionals dating back to 1929.

Ken began operations at Empire Roofing Corporation in Windsor with two employees and has transformed the company into a provincial power house with three different locations in Ontario (Toronto, London, and Windsor) and over 150 highly skilled roofers and staff members.


As a third generation roofer, Ken understands what it takes to provide high quality roofs with a focus on excellent customer service.

Empire Roofing Corporation joined the network of Firestone Licensed Contractors in April 2001 and have specialized in UltraPly™ TPO roofing systems. Empire earned certification through Firestone Quality Seminars that combine classroom activities with hands-on training to provide in-depth knowledge about the various Firestone high performance roofing systems.

Empire’s roofing crews are regulars at Firestone’s training facilities in Mississauga. Top craftsmanship is a crucial factor as warranted Red Shield™ roofs are inspected by Firestone Technical Representatives to ensure the finished roofs meet the quality standards necessary for a Firestone Red Shield™ warranty – which can extend up to 30 years.

Empire sets the bar high! They spend a lot of time training their crew to uphold the highest standards of quality. They have an outstanding system in place to control the quality of their installations and work tirelessly to ensure everything is perfect. Quality is always in their mind, it’s the first thing they think about“. – Todd Perry, Firestone Field Technical Representative – Southern Ontario.

With more than 500 Red Shield™ warranted projects to date, Empire Roofing Corporation has built a solid reputation as excellent commercial roofing installers. They have the experience and knowledge required for even the most complex single-ply roofing projects.

Empire’s Focus on Quality

Empire Roofing Corporation is dedicated to quality workmanship and focuses on providing customers long lasting roofing systems.

We realized that a contractor who focuses on quality over quantity is hard to find. We’re unique in that sense and it separates us from the competition“. – Ken Gascoigne, President – Empire Roofing Corporation

It comes to no surprise that Empire Roofing Corporation has been awarded Firestone Master Contractor status eight years in a row (2010 – 2017), and the Harvey Award in 2016 and 2017.
