AWE East- Growing Together

AWE (Advanced Weather Enclosures) Group is a trusted and respected roofing, canopy and scaffolding company that has been serving the Guelph and surrounding area for over 15 years.  A family-owned business, with over 30 years of expertise, Habitat for Humanity Wellington Dufferin Guelph is proud to include them in our multi-year Corporate Partner Program.  According to Lee Westgarth, co-owner, “we began supporting Habitat in 2011 when we supplied the roofing materials and labour for one of their homes.  It was so rewarding for us to give back to the community in this way and we quickly realized how important this organization is to the families they help and to the community.”

Lee, his father Neil and Uncle Peter, along with operations manager Albert Osdautaj have taken AWE past the corridors of Guelph and now service customers across Canada.  This is in part because of the increased awareness of their products, service and warranties through their association with “Decked Out”, an HGTV show hosted by Paul LaFrance.  “Once our customers experience the great service and quality we offer, they never go anywhere else,” remarks Lee.

“Our AWE/Habitat partnership will only strengthen in the upcoming years”, says Sharron Riley-Persson, Director of Marketing, Communications & Resource Development at Habitat. “Not only did AWE put the roof on our most recent home on Paisley Road, but they have also become very involved as sponsors of our Ultimate Habitat House Party signature event. The future looks so bright for us when we can count on support from our donors like the AWE Group.”
