On April 25, 1952, the Canton Repository’s headline congratulated the 33 best spellers from Stark, Tuscarawas, and Carroll counties. Along with major headlines about war and new beginnings for Pike County there we were, Canton Aluminum a small family owned business starting out with quality manufactured awnings, siding, storm windows and doors all made from aluminum materials.
Morris Knell, the uncle of current owners Jerry and Marty Ortman, founded Canton Aluminum in 1952. Jerry joined his uncle in 1971 and soon became a partner. After the passing of Morris in 1984, Marty joined his brother, starting with sales and working his way up to partner. Both brothers have been successfully keeping the family business growing into the thriving business it is today.
Although Canton Aluminum has evolved and changed throughout the years, our core values have stayed the same, providing our customers with quality materials, professional service and a job well done, every time. We pride ourselves on being able to provide our customers with exactly what they are looking for; in fact, we have relied on the quality work that we have provided to our customers for continuous business and referrals from previous clients.
Over the years we have evolved to include a broad range of modern quality products including vinyl siding, sunrooms, replacement windows, doors and patio coverings to name a few. We work with reputable companies that align with our core values, and our customers can see that quality in the products they purchase.
We’ve learned a few things about what our customers care about most when they come to us for their next project – quality work and materials, attention to detail, friendly faces and cleaning up once the job is complete. Our customers have told us many times how much they appreciate the amount of detail our installers care about and how they are always more than satisfied with the project from start to finish. It’s important to us that we not only ensure our customers are getting a quality project from a professional team, but also making sure we clean up after ourselves so you can start enjoying your space without the added hassle of cleaning.
We support our local community by participating in as many local fairs and shows as we can. Owners Jerry & Marty Ortman are also active members of the community including the Building Industry Association (BIA), Canton and Plain Township Rotary Clubs and the North Canton, Jackson and Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce.
In 2008 we decided to work with a respectable and well-known Sunrooms company, Sunspace Sunrooms. We have been carrying their products for nine years, and our customers love the product! From Screen rooms to a 4 Season Sunroom, WeatherMaster Windows or SlideClear Screens the number of products we were able to offer our customers increased immensely simply by bringing in the Sunspace product lines.
“Last summer, after much shopping for contractors, we chose Canton Aluminum to rebuild a sunroom on our home. The sunroom we had was a patio type with all sliding doors and was falling off the house. I wanted a stick built room – something that would look more a natural part of our home than an add-on. Marty and the other fine folks at Canton Aluminum made the process a wonderful experience. During our “consultation” visits, he listened carefully to what we needed and hoped for; He offered suggestions and ideas that improved our vision. The work crews (we had the house reroofed also) were courteous, professional and efficient. The finished room is exactly what we envisioned, and we could not be more pleased! I would not hesitate to recommend Canton Aluminum to anyone looking to make home improvements. Should we decide to do any other work on our home, Canton Aluminum will be our first call! – Patty M.”
Over the past 65 years, we have been fortunate to work with so many great people and help them improve their homes. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our previous and current customers for their continued support and trust in our company and calling us for all your home improvement needs. We truly would not be where we are today without all our customers. We will continue providing all Northeast Ohio with quality work, and strive to ensure our customers receive the quality customer they have come to know and expect from Canton Aluminum.
