Our testimonials

"Very Professional Crew!"
They did a good job in lousy weather as the project was done during winter. The crew that was onsite was really good and we had no issues during or after renovation.

Bill C., Delta

"The team was great"

Vancouver Siding informed me of what they were doing and when it would be done. Most important, they showed up when they said they would. We are pleased with the job Siding in Vancouver did for us!

Anthony C., Port Moody

"Great service, very professional and on budget"

We had our siding removed and replaced by Siding in Vancouver. Vladimir (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, they 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 Vladimir was always available to answer any questions we had.

"Honest, reliable guys!"

Siding Vancouver is a great company to work with! Oleg 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!

"They Offered Plenty of Options"

The crew were very professional and pleasant workers. I also received comments from other trades on how helpful they were. I found them doing searches online and glad I chose them.

"Siding Vancouver is Very Professional!"
I was very happy that they were able to complete the work on time. I was very pleased with the materials they were able to come up with to meet our needs and likes. I really liked the quality and the look of the installation. They had creative solutions because they went outside of the box and was willing to use different products to complete the project. If I ever have to redo our roof or build another home, I would call Siding in Vancouver for sure.
