Just wanted to pass on my thanks to you and Paul for sending me two awesome installers. Both Shelby and Troy were excellent, and their commitment to quality work reflects on your company. I know many builders in the Richmond area and I will certainly pass on my experience with your company’s work to them.
To the Potential Client of Ace Copper,
My name is Joe MacMullin and I’m a project manager for Powers Construction. My current project is at 4028 W34th Ave. in Vancouver. This project was my first time working with Ace Copper and certainly won’t be the last. Since their stellar work has been completed on my job, I’ve made it crystal clear to all the other project managers at Powers that we look no further than Ace Copper, with all flashing and sheet metal scopes of work. Allow me to briefly explain why we feel this way.
At my W34th project there are very detailed, difficult flashing details (feel free to come by and look). Most other vendors cringed at the pricing stage claiming it was too extensive to give a fixed price; several vendors simply said they wouldn’t do it because it was too difficult. There were only 2 vendors that were even interested in taking it on. Once I had a meeting with Ace Copper I knew who we would be going with. The understanding that Ace Copper has in the world of sheet metal is nothing short of amazing. I’ve personally been in the construction industry 12 years and have never met anyone, let alone a whole company, who can execute flashing and sheet metal to this quality. Not even close actually. To add to that, all of their pricing fit very nicely into our budget amounts. Their pricing is fair, competitive, and you are certainly getting what you pay for which is true professionalism.
While we were in the middle of our scope of work, I had been going through an ongoing battle with a roofing vendor whom did a standing seam metal roof at W34th as well. The entire roof had been an uphill battle to that point. The pricing was very difficult to keep on budget so we had to make a compromise on the product we wanted to use, much less quality product but figured it should be fine as long as the install had been done properly. Unfortunately for us, it had not been. After lengthy negotiations from the vendor who did poor quality work, we decided to uninstall the product they installed entirely and hire Ace Copper to start from scratch. Ace Copper came in with a very competitive price for the higher quality product, which we had originally wanted. So we proceeded. The quality of this roof install was so impressive that the architects from BattersbyHowat Architectural Design even re-wrote some of their details of enveloping on metal clad roofing. We were all hugely impressed. Even the client, whom has zero construction knowledge or experience, could notice the “night and day” difference in quality. The client was so appreciative that they even got Paul from Ace Copper a gift as a thank you for the excellent quality work and fair pricing. Over a 15 month high end custom home which is almost complete, that was the only gift the client gave to a sub trade. All parties involved shared equal enthusiasm for the quality work done by Ace Copper. Since then, they have been awarded several other contracts for other projects of ours. We will continue doing so.
To conclude I will say that I am more than happy to recommend Ace Copper to anyone looking for a flashing/sheet metal vendor. They are a pleasure to work with, all the way down their crew. Every person from their crew was knowledgeable, courteous and professional. I look forward to working with them on my next projects.
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.
