Our family cottage is a beautiful, and very large log home. It was an expensive home to build, but it was built to last a century or more. The problem we faced was that our roof was failing before the cottage was even twenty years old! We interviewed some large roofing companies but each one was intimated by the size of our project, the height of our roof, and the degree of perfection we were looking for! We wanted this new roof to last “at least a lifetime”. Finally we met Ken Dickson from Muskoka Roofing. He was referred by a trusted friend who has built a number of beautiful homes in the Muskokas.
From the moment we met Ken we were impressed with his knowledge, his professionalism, and his confidence that he could deliver to us exactly what he promised ~ the best, most secure, and longest lasting roof possible.
We knew this project would take many weeks to complete, and would require a large team. Ken and his group of roofers were great! They were hard working, meticulous, and importantly, very safe, protecting both themselves from injury, and our cottage and property as well.
In the end we couldn’t be more happy with the way our roof turned out. It was a complicated project with ridge vents for the peaks, copper for all the valleys, gutters, flashing, and cupolas, and Enviroshakes for the roofing. Not only does the cottage look beautiful, but we are confident the roof will last for decades to come.
Without hesitation, I would absolutely recommend Ken Dickson and Muskoka Roofing. Ken and his company are true professionals!!!

During July and August 2015, Muskoka Roofing Company (Ken Dickson) replaced our existing cedar shingle roofs on two houses with Enviroshakes.
This was a difficult job due to roof pitch 12/12, multiple dormers, valleys, ridges, turret and height (3 stories at rear).
Ken was personally working on the roof most days with his crew. They all did an excellent job with an excellent attitude.
We would happily recommend Ken Dickson to anyone interested in a quality new roof.
Thank you Ken for a job well done.
"Our work with Ken Dickson and his team at Muskoka Roofing arose when we were in search of a contractor to replace our metal roof, after extensive hail damage. We chose to use Enviroshake as a replacement material, and Ken was recommended as their Top Installer by the Enviroshake Manufacturer. In the end, we have a beautiful roof that far exceeded our expectations, installed with Top Quality and Workmanship. We were thrilled when Ken and his Team took care of every aspect of the job, from removal of the damaged roof material all the way to completion of Eavestrough and Cleanup, in a very timely and efficient manner.
What we appreciated most about working with Ken and his team was Ken's direct involvement and attention to detail in the hands on application, the incredible work ethic of the entire team, their complete respect of our property and home, and their very friendly and professional conduct."

In May/June, 2015, I had the roofing crew from JCP exteriors replace a hail damaged cedar shake on strapping roof. This was a large roof that had to be stripped, sheeted, and resurfaced with Enviroshake. Ken Dixon and his crew were on site for six weeks and only missed one day due to weather. It was a windy cold six weeks and I never heard a disparaging word from any member of the crew. Ken and his crew were on time every day and worked until that days objectives were met. All of the crew were polite and courteous and I think they may have even played an oldies station for my benefit. The job site was cleaned up daily and left tidy and ready for any weather.
Although six weeks is a long time and I was happy to see the work completed I couldn’t have asked for a better group of roofers.
I am very pleased with the finished product and I would highly recommend Ken Dixon and his JCP/ Muskoka Roofing outfit.
