What we’re all about

We’re the big picture kind of people.

At Under The Roof Decorating (UTR Decorating), we design innovative products that make decorating easier. Home Improvement and Home Décor represent a $26 billion industry, and we’re passionately disrupting this landscape. We’re not afraid to chart our own path and make big waves. When we see common issues in the biz, we set our sights on solving them.

Make no mistake, though. We don’t just talk the talk - we walk the walk. We’re building on the big success of our first, award-winning product, Hang & Level™ The Picture Hanging Tool. We’ve now reached distribution in over 10,000 stores across Canada and the United States, and have expanded a whole line of decorating products. Our hardworking, entrepreneurial spirit got us here, and we’re keen on disrupting the Home Décor category.

Our team? We’re not too shabby either.

We know how to get jiggy with it. Among other high level behaviours that is. Don’t get too used to the idea of working in isolation. We like to lean on each other for support. Sometimes that comes in the form of infectious chatter and camaraderie. Other times, it has us challenging each other, challenging our thinking to come up with the best solutions. As for snacks? We’ve got plenty. What can we say? We like to nourish our brains on all fronts.

We’re also all cut from different and brilliant cloths, which make our team uniquely fierce. Every day at UTR Decorating we are challenged to do better than we did yesterday.
