Home for the Holidays

Every child deserves a toy at Christmas!

During the Holiday Season your children and mine dream of all the toys they want to see under their Christmas tree. They writ to Santa, or they sit on his knee and tell him all their secret wishes for Christmas and usually they get everything they asked for and more!

However not all children are as lucky as ours and we need to remember these children as well, not only during the Christmas season but all year round. During the year many abused women and their children find shelter at the Women’s Community House, where they are assured a more secure environmental than they had at “home”. While the Community House provides support and care for these residents in various ways, due to budget just like anywhere else, they obviously are not able to make all the kids’ Christmas dreams come true when it comes to “Mommy, will Santa find us here?”

Another amazing and heartwarming guardian of those in need is the Salvation Army. Stalwart and forever reliable even the Salvation Army is feeling the pinch this year. Whit so many unemployed here in London their “Kettle” campaign wasn’t quite the success they had hoped for in order to make Christmas “happen” for so many of the children on their list. Now don’t get me wrong, these Londoners that are in need will have food for Christmas which is the most important thing, but there will just not be enough to answer all the wishes for the children and “every child deserves a toy at Christmas!”

Now the good news in all of this is, with the help and sponsorship of Joe Malec, owner of London Eco-Roof, The London Community News and London Eco-Roof are asking our readers’ to drop off a new, unwrapped toy appropriate for children ages 1-12 and we will make sure that they are evenly distributed to both the worthy associations above for “Santa’s sack” this Christmas. What’s one unwrapped toy mean to you? It’s that scarf you thought of buying but don’t really need it? One unwrapped toy will mean the world to a needy child who otherwise will think that they’ve done something wrong because Santa didn’t find them this year.  Joe Malec wants to make a difference and so we entreat you to help us make Every London child feel loved and happy this Christmas.

Thank you for caring and sharing! Thank you for making a difference!

The last roof you’ll ever need

Nothing puts a damper on the holidays like having Santa and his reindeer come crashing through the worn and rotting roof of your house on Christmas Eve. That’s a clatter that will have you and the neighbours rushing to see what’s the matter.

For the last 4 years, Joe Malec and his team of roofers at London Eco-Roof have been replacing traditional shingled roofs with tough, durable and attractive steel and aluminum roofs. Fully guaranteed for 50 years – no matter how many people own the house during that time – metal roofs are vastly superior to traditional asphalt shingles in every way.

“People are tired of buying shingles rated for 20 or 35 years and being right back in the same place, needing to replace them, 7 or 12 years later,” says Malec. “Fifty per cent of the roofs we replace are leaking. It’s not just that water gets into the house, but it gets the insulation wet and eventually develops into mould. Once you have that, it’s very expansive to get rid of, and most people don’t even know they are breathing it every day.”

“Shingles just don’t stand up to the weather, “ he says. “We get hotter weather in the summer now and stronger storms year-round. Shingles just don’t last in that harsh environment, and that’s why so many people are switching to metal roofs.”

When steel roofs first were available, there were a bit like Model T Fords. You could have any colour so long as it was black. Today, London Eco-Roof offers 17 colours, some in steel and some in aluminum.  New for 2013 is Nova, a copper/gold aluminum colour that is already attracting orders.

“The range of colours is amazing, “ Malec says. “People think about the colour of their roofs now the same way they consider the colour of their front door or siding. It’s a design element of their home.”

Earlier this year, the company opened a showroom at 1682 Dundas St. Homeowners can go and see all the colours displayed to get an accurate idea of what their roofs might look like.

When Malec created the business, his goal was to provide steel roofs at an affordable cost, a price point that would make steel roofs a legitimate alternative for homeowners who normally would opt for asphalt shingles. Steel does cost a bit more than shingles, although over the course of their lifetime, they are much less expensive given how long they last.

Prices start at $4.80/square foot. London Eco-Roof has an exclusive arrangement with the TD Bank to provide “top secret savings,” as Malec likes to say. “We can help people get the financing they need to do their roof. That’s not a problem.”

In the last six years, Malec and his team have installed hundreds of roofs in and around London. Every roof they do serves as a referral because neighbours are always interested in what’s happening next door, how they can save over time on their own roofs.

“Word of mouth has been terrific for us, “ Malec says. “I want to thank all of our customers for telling their friends about us. We truly appreciate it and will continue providing the best products and service in London.”
