Who is Steve Meltz of Juffs Roofing?
I have been involved for over 24 years in the roofing industry. In 1994 I was elected president of Juffs Roofing Ltd and became a partner. I bought out the previous owner Mike Juffs in 2001.
In 1996 I earned the accreditation QM (Quality Master), and MSA (Master Shingle Applicator).
In 1996 I became a ventilation and ice dam solution specialist. I have since been featured on Global News three times for Ice Damming. I, personally, believe in continuing education and staying current in learning new techniques. I was trained by Tony Woods and I climbed into many attics with him. Tony was the owner of Can Am Building Envelope Specialists and for over 40 years he trained insulation and roofing contractors on how to solve attic related problems.
I became a member of CCN (Certified Contractors Network) in 1996, which was founded by Richard Kaller, who owned 5 roofing companies and was a board member of the NRCA (National Roofing Contractors Association). I worked very closely with Richard and he became my mentor.
The CCN incorporated several of my ideas and business practices into their Best Practices Manual to train and educate their members. I was on the CCN steering committee for the development of software to help roofing contractors manage their businesses.
In 2009 I developed a roofing repair service model that brings fast, reliable and affordable repair solutions to homeowners called Mr Roof Repair to the GTA.
I still go out and estimate jobs and remain hands on. I love meeting with owners and enjoy providing a holistic one stop shop for roofing problems and attic related problems. I just finished our new website which I believe is the most informative roofing website in the GTA.

What do you love about your work?
The best part of Juffs Roofing is the opportunity help solve homeowners roof related problems, we take a holistic approach and provide real solutions that work! We execute and see the work through our team of trained employees. It’s rewarding when we solve attic mould, ice damming, attic condensation, tricky roof-scapes or flat roofing drainage problems. We love to interact with homeowners and provide them with knowledgeable, cost effective, guaranteed services on a daily basis.
Knowing that we have exceeded our customers’ expectations and provided them with a durable solution and guaranteed roofing system is by far the best part of our job.
A homeowner contacted us when they noticed stains on their ceiling and ice build up around the roof of their indoor swimming pool.
We went in to investigate and found that there was ice damming at the eaves edges, moisture stains on the exterior stucco, mould in the plywood, blocked insulation and a number of other problems. We decided to revisit the house to ensure we were as thorough as possible and used thermal imaging to identify all the issues with the indoor pools roof.
Once we finished the investigation we reported to the homeowner and went to work. We removed the roof to properly access the attic (the shingles had been recently replaced and were in good condition), and installed new gilding, new insulation, a Two Ply Roof System and a variety of other fixes. We used techniques and materials to ensure that mold and water damage would not develop again.
