I have a 30 year old home that needed a fresh look and new windows. After getting estimates from a handful of companies, it came down to one other and Siding Vancouver. While Siding Vancouver was a higher cost estimate than the other company, it was how Siding Vancouver is set up (not using outside contractors, family owned) that I preferred. Plus in the end, Stefan (estimator) matched the competitor estimate so it was a no-brainer to go with Siding Vancouver.
From start to finish, Siding Vancouver was professional and efficient. They use a great internal system that tracks change orders and provides daily updates on progress. This was a great tool to have access to, especially if you are away from the job site for periods of time; you can check-in and see what’s going on! In addition, Martin (my main contact) occasionally checked-in to provide progress updates and offer suggestions on specific project areas.
The project was a total exterior siding replacement, all new windows with trim and one new exterior door. Along the way there were a handful of changes/updates that were requested by me and sometimes recommended by Martin and the crew. While the changes added to the project cost, they were handled professionally and in a timely manner and overall enhanced the look of the project. One of their guys, Russ, is a master builder. Every suggestion for change/improvement he made, I accepted. Very honest and skilled individual. Russ is a key asset to these projects!
One aspect I really enjoyed about Siding Vancouver is that they had a crew working every day. Sometimes it was two people and sometimes 10 people, but progress was always happening. We even had two days of just absolute crazy brutal rain and the guys were there. In the end, the project was finished in about three weeks.
Another aspect I really liked was working with a designer they have that digitally creates your project. I sent in photos of the project and during a one-hour phone call using an online tool, I was taken through a full design consultation. During this consult, the type of siding was chosen, colors decided, and overall design aesthetic. This was a really neat process and it gave me an exact picture of what the project outcome would be.
A third aspect I liked was the overall quality of workmanship and material. Everything is done to code and in some cases exceeding. They take the time to do the little things; caulking little corners and edges, painting/filling nail heads, using trim reveal to create depth, using cuts that avoid seams/lines in the siding for specific runs/lengths, and keeping the overall design symmetrically balanced. Some of their suggestions were so positive and thoughtfully considered (from a design standpoint) that I cannot imagine the completed project without them. Everything is just chiseled and polished; very challenging to find even the most minor of deficiencies.
If you are in need of any large or small projects, give these guys a call. You’ll get a detailed estimate and project scope that will enable you to make the right decision for your needs. I can say that Siding Vancouver is not the lowest cost option but they are definitely the highest quality option; it’s clear they care about their work and your project. The phrase “you get what you pay for” comes to mind.
Overall I am very happy with my decision in going with Siding Vancouver and extremely satisfied with the final project outcome. Absolutely top-notch! A++
