Not Just Another Roofing Company!

Since 1980, Sam Bowers Roofing has been serving the residential roofing needs of Peterborough and the surrounding areas. Our mission is to provide every customer with the best quality of work. As a family owned and operated business, we pride ourselves on using in-house employees and top-rated materials – a true hometown business.

We approach every job as if we are family. Respect, understanding, and professionalism are just a few of the things that will help us keep a long-time relationship with you. No matter how large or small your roofing needs, you always receive a free written estimate, which includes:

  • Full Roof Inspection
  • Comprehensive Breakdown of Materials
  • Labour Costs
  • Debris Removal
  • HST
  • 5-Year Guarantee

We’re also experts in skylights which can enhance any space!

Sam Bowers Roofing also does things most roofing companies can’t, don’t, or won’t do. When we strip off an old roof, we pull out the old nails by hand. When we install the underlayment and the shingles, we drive in each nail by hand, using IKO or BP shingles according to the customer’s preference.

We recognize the importance of promoting safe work practices and a safe work environment. All employees are insured under Sam Bowers Roofing and WSIB.

Proper safety equipment is used and inspected regularly. To ensure the safety and well-being of our employees and customers, each employee adheres to Sam Bowers Roofing Workplace Specific Health and Safety Policies and Procedures, and has current Fall Arrest/Protection Training, WHMIS and CPR/First Aid.

    We needed a new roof after a disastrous leak in our 13-year-old home last year. I teach with the local public school board, so turned to their message board for recommended contractors. I received about a dozen replies and recommendations, and four of them were for Sam Bowers Roofing, now operated by Sam’s son, Bill. I called 3 companies for estimates, and Bill’s quote was the most comprehensive, for example – included adding 3 additional roof vents in the price, as well as a complete layer of ice and water shield. It was no surprise he was booking so far in advance! We booked with him and were very pleased with the quality of workmanship, communication, and clean up. Will definitely highly recommend!

    We recently hired Bowers Roofing to redo the shingles on our home. Bill and his crew were on time and did the job quickly and efficiently. The guys were all courteous and friendly and they took special care not to damage the plants in our side garden. They did an excellent job and cleaned up thoroughly before they left. We highly recommend Sam Bowers Roofing!

    Very prompt, super nice, excellent work, totally fair and well priced. Could not be happier! They came on a rush request, and were so helpful. They fixed more than we even knew had to be fixed, and did not even charge extra. They were referred to us by two other very happy neighbours. Certainly I see why they have such wonderful referrals. Trustworthy. And best of all completely reliable. Highly recommended!
