The Results: Siding and Eavestroughing Projects
that Are As Smooth as Silk
According to Kari, “the project in Keswick went as smooth as silk, with no hiccups whatsoever. The guys were there, the materials were there, and they had their own equipment. It was an ideal installation over the better part of two weeks. It was almost a week for siding alone. The Markham project was also handled well.”
The project on Eagle Street took place over two days. Kari laughs as he remembers that “Can-Cro sent quite a large crew that took up the whole parking lot. It was so easy. I just told them what I needed done, and whoever was running the job that day got it done.”
It’s great to know that there is someone responsible for the job, on-site, all the time. Kari confesses, “Honestly, the reputation of this industry is for drama, and when you’re a charity you expect to be lower on the priority list. We’ve had that experience with some suppliers and it’s great to have that stress taken away. Our expectations with Can-Cro are always met and exceeded.”
Nancy confirms this feeling. “Kari is very particular, especially with visible details, and Can-Cro meets every one of his expectations. You really do get what you pay for. We’ve had challenges with some suppliers and the fact that Can-Cro is always there when they say they will be and that they do their work without babysitting exceeds our expectations.” Both Kari and Nancy are emphatic that their relationship with Can-Cro is a great addition to Habitat York’s operations.
The Conclusion: Another Successful Long-Term Relationship
When asked if there have been any issues with Can-Cro’s work, Kari explains, “siding, fascia and eavestroughing are not something people take time to worry about unless there’s a problem. Our partner-families have never come back to us with concerns about the work. And you know that they would if there was a problem. This is something we can’t just delegate to volunteer labour — it’s more specialized. And there have been no problems at all.”
Nancy adds, “Can-Cro has helped us with procuring materials, and has connected us with Roofmart to help us get materials at a discount, if not free. We know that they have used their reputation and their network to help us. And we want to make sure that the experience is win-win for everyone involved.”
Nancy concludes, “it’s safe to say that if we need professional siding or eavestroughing, they will always be our first choice based on their quality and reliability. We know that they won’t leave us high and dry and that the job will be handled correctly. It’s more than just a house-by-house relationship and we feel that we can count on them for the majority of the builds we do moving forward.”
Can-Cro has helped Habitat York ‘win’ on several of their projects in the past and is continuing this relationship into the future. They’ve donated labour and/or materials to Habitat For Humanity builds and renovations as part of their commitment to the community and they have taken those jobs just as seriously as they will yours.
