Why choose Austin’s Team of Seamless Roofing and Waterproofing Experts?
Austin Roofing & Waterproofing can provide an expert evaluation of your waterproofing and needs and provide a complete seamless membrane solution making your substrates watertight and more durable than the first day it was installed.
We specialize in flat roof repair and restoration on commercial and industrial buildings in Ontario. Our seamless roofing systems can be installed on top of any flat roof or slightly pitched surfaces. Your existing building may have one of the following roof membranes: single-ply (EPDM, TPO, PVC), Embedded Gravel (rock), metal, or built-up (asphalt, modified bitumen).
Our extreme weather conditions in Ontario causes thermal shock (expansion and contraction caused by UV radiation). This will cause these roof substrates to stretch or sag at the seams, along the edges and around protruding stacks, pipes and HVAC units. Ponding water is the byproduct of thermal shock and the main contributor to leaks in the membrane.
Austin Roofing & Waterproofing wants to be the last roofing contractor you will ever need to call. We use high-quality, proven seamless membranes that are backed by an all-inclusive, materials and labor warranty for up to 40 years.

Friends honour student’s memory
AMHERSTBURG, ONT: Ryan Lee and Michelle Pelaccia sit on a bench they raised money for to purchase in memory of their childhood friend at a park behind St. Joseph Parish Sunday, August 26 in River Canard. Christopher Austin, 20, was killed in a tragic boating accident in May. The bench is situated by the elementary and high school Austin attended and where his family lives.
Months after losing a lifelong friend to a tragic boating accident, friends of Christopher Austin – still reeling with sorrow – found a way to honour the young man they say “treated everyone like gold.”
“There was just this hanging grief and I know everybody felt it just as strong as I did,” said Michelle Pelaccia, 20, a friend of Austin’s since kindergarten who came up with the idea of purchasing a park bench in his memory.
“I think coming together for something for him and finally having it in one spot where we can all go to was sort of a piece of closure that we can all get.”
Austin, 20, who was one year away from completing a business degree at Michigan’s Madonna University on a golf scholarship, was operating a personal watercraft when it was involved in a collision with a 38-foot cigarette boat in Livingstone Channel, in the Detroit River near Boblo Island.
Austin was taken with life-threatening injuries to Detroit Receiving Hospital, where he fought for his life for three days until he died May 30 surrounded by friends and family.
The bench was placed near Austin’s grade school, high school and home – a spot his friends say is central to their cherished memories of the athlete. A plaque on the bench includes Austin’s name and says “Wherever I go, whatever I do, memories keep me near to you.”
“Isn’t that beautiful,” Austin’s grandmother Ethel said after she read it while fighting back tears.
“When I heard I was just thrilled to think these kids did this. It’s just so sweet,” Ethel said. “I was really touched by that. When I visit that’s where I will sit.”
Ethel’s son Rick and grandson Patrick, Austin’s father and brother, live a short walk away.
Rick, Patrick, Austin’s aunts, uncles, grandparents and cousins attended a ceremony Sunday during which Rev. Dwayne Adam of St. Joseph Paris blessed the bench.
The family was overwhelmed.
“We’ve been heartbroken over this. It’s just so hard to understand,” said Austin’s aunt, Diane Loebach.
“We thought this was wonderful. It just goes to show what young people can put their minds to. He really was loved … It will be a nice place to come and reflect.”
About 50 people gathered Sunday, including Austin’s friends and Madonna golf coach and team. This year the team’s uniform, which they showed up wearing, have the initials CA stitched onto the lapels.
“You just knew he was one of those students,” said coach Steven Mato. “When you met him he made a great first impression. He had a passion for golf and (showed) great character.”
Pelaccia and Ryan Lee, another childhood friend, raised more than $2,000, surpassing their goal of $1,500, to cover the expense of the bench. They intend to use the leftover funds, donated by local businesses and friends, to purchase another memorial plaque at Pointe West Golf Club where Austin frequently played.
Cathy Thoman, Austin’s aunt, said the family was touched and wanted to thank everyone for their support.
A Picture of You
I only have a picture now.
A frozen piece of time
to remind me of how it was,
when you were here, and mine.
I see your smiling eyes,
each morning when I wake,
I talk to you, and place a kiss,
upon your lovely face.
How much I miss you being here,
I really cannot say.
The ache is deep inside my heart,
and never goes away.
I hear it mentioned often
that time will heal the pain,
but if I'm being honest
I hope it will remain.
I need to feel you constantly,
to get me through the day.
I loved you so very much!
Why did you go away?
The angels came and took you;
that really wasn't fair.
I wasn't even with you,
I wished that I was there.
If only they had asked me,
If I would've taken your place.
I would have done so willingly,
leaving you this world to grace.
You should have had so many years
to watch your life unfold,
and in the midst of this,
Watch me, your Dad and Brother grow old!
I hope you're watching from above
at the daily tasks I do,
and let there be no doubt at all,
I really do love you!
Forever missed by Dad and Patrick.
