Our testimonials

"Thank you Siding in Vancouver!"

We needed our siding to be replaced as it was installed over 35 years ago. I got 4 different quotes and Siding in Vancouver had the best price. I did some research on them, as there is another company with a very similar name, but after I talked to the James Hardie representative, he explained that it is the only preferred contractor with over 25 installations a year and the other company is not. Quality of installation was perfect, guys knew what they were doing. I am not sure why they gave me such a good price, but at the end of the day I am very happy with the result. Thank you, Andrey!

"Great service, very professional and on budget"

We had our siding removed and replaced by Siding in Vancouver. Andrey (owner of the company) gave us many tips on what style would be the best for our home, gave us some catalogs to read and options on vinyl/hardy/cedar siding. It took us a few weeks to decide, but once we were ready, Andrey ordered materials and guys started demolition and preparation the next day (I was blown away). Overall it takes a lot of time to replace siding on the whole house (now I know), it is a lot of work after all. Site was cleaned every day and Andrey was always available to answer any questions we had.

"Honest, reliable guys!"

Siding in Vancouver is a great company to work with! Andrey explained me all the pro’s and con’s of different siding options, was very open about budgets for different options (as I had a very limited budget), so we decided to replace siding on 2 walls (the most beaten ones) and will do the rest in 2-3 years. Definitely will recommend those guys!

"Excellent experience!"

I am glad we had our house renovated by Siding in Vancouver. Andrey and Eldar were great at communicating step by step all the aspects of the siding and windows replacement. It was quite a difficult project (house is very close to the neighbours), but guys did a great job, were on time and on budget. Thanks again!
