About Paul Wilken
Born and raised in Hanover, I started roofing in 1981. I left for Calgary and worked at Freeze Maxwell Roofing for 2 years, learning how to install flat roofs. When I returned to Ontario, my brother and I went to work shingling roofs in Toronto for a few years.
About Mike Sawyer
Born and raised in this area, I started roofing with Wilken Roofing in 2001 after giving up on long haul trucking. Having been friends for years, Paul knew that I wanted a change from trucking and asked me to come and work for him.
I quickly learned all aspects of flat and shingle roofing and moved up the ladder quickly to supervisor within a few years. In 2013, I became a partner at Wilken Roofing and currently run the Flat Roofing division.
I continue to work side by side with the employees and I am proud to be a part of such a successful company.
About Wilken Roofing & General Repairs
Wanting to stay local, I decided to start my own roofing company with a few friends. So in 1985, I started Wilken Roofing & General Repairs with a crew of 4 guys including myself. Over the years the company continued to expand its territory and grow in size, so in 2002 the company incorporated. We now had a crew of 10 employees.
The company continued to grow bigger every year, so in 2013 I decided to take on a partner to help alleviate some of the stress. Mike had worked for the company for 12 years and knew all aspects of the roofing industry. As a hardworking and loyal employee, he was the obvious choice to bring on as a partner.
We now have a crew of 20 employees and have expanded our territory to include all of Southwestern Ontario. We continue to also work hand in hand with local restoration companies, insurance companies, municipalities and townships.
In 2014, Mike and I decided to start a bin rental company on the side, and we purchased a Mack truck and 2 bins. Junk Dawg Bin Rental & Float Service took off unexpectedly and we now have 12 bins. We incorporated the company in 2015.
Wilken Roofing & Junk Dawg will continue to provide quality service to all of our customers for many years to come. Please contact us for a free consultation on your next roofing project!
