We first met Vitaliy through a neighbours recommendation in 2016. The house we had purchased was a mix of exterior finishes added on over the years and in rough shape. He met with us and was helpful in proposing different design options and materials along with addressing concerns about repairing exterior damage. In Phase 1, he completely replaced the exterior siding, soffits, window trim and eavestroughs (addressing repair issues and insulation through the process). The back/side of our house was instantly transformed and our interior was less drafty and warmer.
Following the completion of a basement renovation in 2022, we had VCS come back to complete the front exterior of the house a Phase 2. Again, he proposed a design and materials within our budget with consideration of supply issues arising from COVID. He skillfully integrated his work with our new front porch and stairwell into the basement. It was clear that he wanted the exterior of our small and older city house to look the best that it could be in spite of its condition. He also helped with issues that were left behind by another contractor.
There are two aspects that particularly stood out for us. 1) He was always cost conscious - but only to a point. During the material selection process he was clear with us on which materials provided the best balance of aesthetics and durability. This range of options allowed us to make the best value decision. 2) Vitaliy has a real eye for design, and he takes this very seriously. It's important to him. In both phases of our work he spent a lot of time determining what would look best - he always had a vision. And in the end you know he is a master of "metal art"!
Vitaliy is a collaborative contractor, a true craftsman and takes pride in a complete job. It was a pleasure for us to work with him.
We will not forget Vitaliy and happily recommend VCS.
