I had been searching for a solution to replacing the 80-year old cedar shakes on my semi-detached for over a year. My choice of All County Aluminum was influenced in part by the many excellent reviews on homestars.com. The first thing I have to say is that the service was
excellent. I had sent an email, and received a reply within the hour.
I called Serge up and made an appointment for the next day. When meeting Serge, I could tell straight away that he was someone who took pride in the work his company did. My semi-detached is by no means a large job, but we did want the front to look more traditional using some form of vinyl shake, with the back and side of the house in more traditional siding. Serge provided a number of scenarios in the quotation he provided, looking at the different combinations of products we had were considering. Serge didn't try to sell me anything I didn't want, and provided a detailed final quote.
At the end we choose horizontal vinyl siding (Kaycan Prova-9) for the side and back and Kaycan Eagle Rock vinyl shakes for the front dormer.
In addition we had some of the soffits replaced, and all the eavestroughs and downspouts (in the same colour- Mocha - as the siding). In addition we added Alu-Rex leaf guards, and 3/4" foil
based styrofoam insulation with an R-value of 5 under the siding.
The end result is flawless. Every small detail was considered, from
the runoff from my roof into the back eavestrough, to how the new
siding integrated with the older soffits and existing windows/structures. The downspouts were so strongly attached to the house, I no longer have to worry that the weight of ice in them in the winter will pull them off the wall. His crew cleaned up after every days work, and really took pride in the fine craftsmanship.
Overall, I would not hesitate in recommending All County Aluminum to anyone who is considering having similar work done. Serge and his
team at All County Aluminum are real professionals. The photographs
speak for themselves.
