Siding, fascia, eavestrough

Homeowners beware! If you are looking for a reliable company to complete work on your home, then this is NOT the one for you!

We hired Louie’s Siding and Roofing to install new siding, eavestrough, soffit, and fascia. We also originally wanted him to change our windows around our house. We told him which windows we wanted to be casement, however, when he brought back a printout from Home Depot with prices, none of the windows were casement. We informed him of this, and he brought yet another printout with prices, and again, none of these were casement. He insisted they were and kept asking if we would be redoing the windows. We then went to Home Depot ourselves to double-check, and the employee also confirmed that those he had selected were all sliding windows. We asked him to only cap the windows that weren’t being replaced, which he did incorrectly. He used two pieces along one side instead of one continuous piece that was connected only at the corners and all the corners were completed differently.

We provided a deposit for the siding work which was already agreed upon. We originally chose a colour only to be told that it wasn’t available and would take 3 weeks to arrive from the warehouse. We wanted to start the job soon, so we chose another colour which he told us was completely in stock. When he began the job, he only brought material for less than half of the entire house. The fascia he installed was done in multiple pieces along each edge, as opposed to one or a few pieces. He also installed the fascia without removing the gutters, even though he was to replace the gutters as well, so the fascia covered the bottom half below the gutter. He clearly brought a box of siding with leftover pieces and chose to use this instead. Some of the pieces also had holes — his reasoning for this was due to manufacture’s defect. We informed him that this needed to be fixed.

When we asked him when the remaining material was going to arrive, he said he had ordered it and that it would be in the following week. When the week came, he asked us for money so he could buy the material. We then questioned him, as he told us it had already been ordered and asked to see the receipts. He kept telling us the receipts were at home, and each day he would show up without them. He then told us he needed more money because he doesn’t have money to pay for the material, nor does he have a credit card. He also told us that he needed more money from us so that he could pay his workers. We told him that this was not our responsibility, and that the agreement was to pay the remaining balance once the job had been completed in full. These were all big red flags. Our biggest regret is that we did not look his company up online to check his reviews prior to hiring him, as they are all quite similar stories to ours.

Abandoned my job

I hired Louis to change all the siding, soffit and fascia, eavestroughs and downspouts for my home. He abandoned my job without putting the eavestroughs back on. I'm now facing freezing winter months with water pouring off my roof......looks like I should have read these reviews before I hired Louie.

Front Door / house siding

Hi, My wife accepted this company as contractors to put siding on our house. We also asked for them to do our front door. Everything started out good. As time went on they would only show up for half days. They completed the house and although there were some short cuts we were ok with the job. They then did our garage. They didnt have enough material so instead of getting more they used half pieces on our garage. They used a couple of pieces of siding that had holes in it. They also sided right over a back window of the garage. Just this weekend I tried changing our front step light only to find Art had glue the light bulb right to the fixture and now we have to get a whole new light fixture. They also removed our screen door in preperation of the new door and litterally ripped the screws out of the door frame leaving a mess. When they did the back of our home they tore off our back light over the door and it sits in pieces on the ground of our back door. They also removed a part of our fence, and didnt put it back when they were done. Closer to the end of the siding job, although we had paid in full Louie's asked for more money. We did not, but we still requested they do our front door. My wife gave Luoie the $250 by cheque with Front door written on it, and we have not seen him since. We have made call after call after call at which he always makes excusses and never shows up when he says he will. The cheque was cashed almost 3 months ago. During the time the 2 works were at our house they constantly used foul language and were yelling at each other. I would suggest not using this company at all for anything. I haven't even mentioned the mess of scraps they left around our house which they said they would clean up. They installed a siding band accross our garage that is crooked, and he said he would be back in the next 3 days to fix it, again, this is just about 3 months ago.

New windows

New windows job had most windows not correct size as agreed on. Had to have them taken out and redone by another company. Going to small claims court to get money back.
