This was my first time doing major home renovations. After getting a few other quotes, I decided to work with Dan. He gave me the best "vibe" and agreed to come with me to apply for the city permit.... He guided me through the whole process, he was present on site, calling me with updates and progress reports. He was a dream to work with and his team was very professional. Thank you Dan! I love my new addition 😊read more

I have a roof leak from last night's rain storm. Fairly new roof, changed in the summer of 2018. After a friend's referral I called the owner, Dan. He was honest in conversation and advised me to... request the original roofer who could fix the leak faster than anyone else. In my opinion, I think Dan was very honest and not greedy to take my business. I'll definitely call him for any future renovation or repair work of my home.read more

We contracted Alba to replace the siding on our house and address some eavestrough issues. Dan did a very good assessment, understood the issues we were facing, and provided a fair quotation for the... job. Given that the replacement of siding is weather dependent, the job started earlier than we anticipated and was completed in a reasonable time. The crew assigned to us, lead by Shawn, did an excellent job. They were professional, hard-working, friendly, efficient, timely, and tidy. Shawn always made us aware of their progress and let us know if they would be late or absent due to impending weather issues. While there were some complications uncovered during the job, Shawn and Dan provided detailed explanations and offered several solutions. All the issues were resolved satisfactorily. The job looks great and we have received many complements from neighbours and passers-by.Dan and Shawn's team provided great service and obviously cared about the work they were doing and were anxious to provide customer satisfaction. I would have no hesitation in contracting Alba for future work on my home. Similarly, I would definitely recommend Alba Home Services.read more

Alba Home Services was contracted to replace our home’s aluminum siding, soffit, fascia, gutters, five windows and the rear patio door. Major structural reconstruction of the chimney surround was... also required due to extensive water damage. Alba also applied a layer of insulation sheathing board under the new vinyl siding. Workmanship by Patrick, Frank and the other members of their team was first-rate as was their customer-oriented approach to getting the project done. The professionalism and integrity that Dan brought to his dealings with us was of the first order. The work was completed on schedule and within budget, and we would not hesitate to engage Alba for future renovations.read more

We have hired Alba for many projects over the years. When hiring Alba you speak directly with the owner of the company who responds promptly to any emails or phone calls, which is hard to find... these days.. that is why we stick with them. We have recommended Alba to many neighbours who have hired them and have the same feedback on workmanship and the owners commitment to his clients. Highly recommend them.read more

I asked Dan to replace our home’s aging aluminum siding with vinyl siding. Part of the job included the addition of 1.5 inch rigid polyisocyanurate insulation sheathing board. This meant the... strapping and vinyl siding would extend further out, but Patrick was able to install window capping which looks great. The material was chosen with care, but more importantly the installation was very professionally done by Patrick and Frank. For example the seams are hardly visible. Dan was frequently on site and patiently answered my many questions. I asked to have the garage door frame capped as well. They took the extra time to complete this unscheduled task. This team was very friendly and skillful. I would highly recommend Alba Home Services. I have already consulted with Dan about our next renovation.read more
