Ace Copper has been supplying View Point Construction with metal products for over 17 years. They have supplied us with a wide range of products, including metal roofs, metal cladding for exterior walls, various flashings, and chimney caps. Ace Copper’s attention to detail is top notch. The jobs have been completed in the time frame specified. I will continue to use Ace Copper for all of my metal needs in the future. I would highly recommend the team at Ace Copper.
The building of our home presented a number of major challenges for Ace Copper Specialists from making custom bronze tiles for a hyperbolic parabola roof to fabricating and fitting bronze panels on soffits and walls. Compounding the challenge was the remote location, which necessitated setting up a mini factory of sorts. Paul and his team were very creative in devising solutions that were not only ascetically pleasing but also cost effective. Communication channels were always open, queries and concerns addressed and expectations met. Because of our high level of satisfaction with the quality of service delivered on our project we have subsequently used Ace Copper and would highly recommend the company to others.
As the design of our home and guest cottage on Kootenay Lake took shape, three things became apparent: First, the way in which these structures were set into the landscape was going to make the roofs a signature feature of the design. Second, because we wanted the roofing to last for the entire life of the house and cottage, copper was the natural choice of material. And third, as we researched to identify the most qualified company to install our roofs, there was one company who reputation for excellence stood head and shoulders above the rest: Ace Copper.
After we had hired Ace for their excellent reputation, something else wonderful happened. We discovered a friendship. It’s unusual on construction projects to form close bonds with sub-trades. The genuine interest that everyone in the Ace organization took not just in our project, but in who we (as the owners) were as people, offered an opportunity for direct personal connection that would be refreshing in any working relationship, but especially where the work is so intimately connected to the life, comfort and function of a home.
The genuine interest that Ace takes in their work as an extension of their tradecraft is exceptional. It’s reflected in their attention to detail, their job site efficiency, and quality of their customer service. There is artistry not just functionality in what they produce. Now, every time we walk the pathway from our carport to our house, we get to look out over a large, curved expanse of ribbed copper roofing that seems to float out over the lake. Like the memories we have of the company that installed it, it’s developing a lovely patina.
Copper is an expensive, if lasting, proposition. It you’ve decided to make this investment in your own building project, you owe it to yourself to hire the most knowledgeable and talented tradespeople to install it. If its not already plainly obvious, we can’t recommend Ace Copper highly enough. Great company, great people, great end results.
