Testimonials

  • Wilderness Custom Exteriors was hired to replace the vinyl siding on my home with new Hardie board lap board and shake-style siding. I was very impressed with the work their crew completed. Their attention to detail and recommendations on aesthetic resulted in a finished job that I could not be happier with. They were very professional and personable, a pleasure to have them working at my home. They kept the job site clean and tidy every day, careful to pick up any nails or sharp objects as they knew I had young children around. They also finished the job much faster than I had expected. I would recommend them to anyone needing exterior renovation of their home.

  • Wilderness Custom Exterior were hired for the siding installation for a house we are building in Lake Country. Their professionalism and his dedication to the project went beyond just installing siding. They was very attentive to everything that was being done on the job and was a very valuable asset for us on site. We would highly recommend them as they were talented and efficient.
    Steve Stairs
  • Wilderness Custom Exteriors did all the siding and trim work on our new build. It was a challenging home to work on being a large, tall, home with lots of corners and detail work situated on a steep lot. They take great pride in the quality of his work and took the time to explain the finer details of the installation. Knowing the extra care that was put into the installation gives us confidence that our home will look beautiful and be protected for years to come.

  • Wilderness was amazing from start to finish! Jason installed the Hardie Plank siding quickly and the workmanship was top notch. The job ended up being more labor intensive than was originally expected but it was so nice to see that the quote was honoured. When it was time to clean up and head out, Jason and his team left my place looking tidier than when they pulled in. We had a great experience with Wilderness and I highly recommend them.

  • I do not remember the names of the 2 people that did the roof at our place two weeks ago. However, I want to extend my thanks to them for a job extremely well done.Your team was experienced, well behaved, and attentive to details on the roof. They were proud of their work, as if they were doing it on their home. Please extend my thanks to them. These two deserve recognition. I will also recommend “Wilderness” to anybody in need of a new roof.

  • What an excellent choice to have Wilderness Custom Exteriors Ltd. re-roof our home. From the first encounter with Jeff Charlebois we felt that his knowledge and expertise of the roofing business would meet our needs. He took the time to explain colours and types of shingles available that would complement our home.The service crew was very prompt with excellent workmanship and ethics. They worked with great care to complete the job on time. We were impressed with the willingness of the crew to ensure we were not inconvenienced during the time of the re-roofing.All of the staff at Wilderness Custom Exteriors Ltd. were very polite and understanding to our needs. We certainly would recommend them to anyone who needs to have any exterior work done on their home.

  • I would like to extend a thanks to Jeff Charlebois and his crew! Rory, Nolan, and the team were all extremely professional and shocked me with how quick and painless the whole transaction went. In our busy city it is extremely hard to find great fast service. I did not expect on Monday morning when I phoned for a quote that I would have new shingles by Wednesday evening, giving our 1955 house a whole new look, but that’s exactly what happened with no unexpected issues or hidden surprises! Awesome work guys!

Thanks so much to all of you, great job! 5 hours from arrival to cleaned up and completion is amazing.The house and garage both look great and we are still in shock at how fast and efficiently this all took place.

  • I wanted to express my appreciation for a job well done. The material was delivered on time. Matt’s crew came by in the morning, and by the time I returned that same evening the job was done. I am not a roofing expert, I have re-shingled my previous home successfully but not to the degree of workmanship that we have received this time. Your crew had performed this task in a timely, and professional manner. The amount of clean-up I had was a small handfull of nails and chips of paper. WOW. The only regret I have is that I wasn’t around at the time of completion to feed them a beer and shake their hands for a job well done.I accept that the quality of the job remains to be experienced, however I am convinced it will withstand the test of time.Thanks Jeff for helping us protect our investment.

  • Please pass this message on to Justin and the roof guys and to Daniel & crew with the eavestroughs stuff. They were all very personable folks. We were so impressed with the speed and efficiency of these two projects. Oh and yeah, the work was so well done and we have had excellent comments from the neighbors! Of course we were also impressed with Jeff for his absolute professionalism.

I wish there were more professionals like that out there. On time, always working hard, it was a true pleasure that you rarely see today. Jeff, hang on tothese guys. They are funny, calm, and the most important word in my repetoir, COURTEOUS. When we talked, it was always Sir, even after I told them to call me Dave. I just wanted to let you know. Thanks for sending me what I would percieve to be your best crew.Sincerely,

  • It’s been a couple of weeks now since your crew completed our new roof and I wanted to let you know that they did a fantastic job. We have had comments from a couple of neighbors who watched them work and were very impressed with their professionalism… and how good the new roof looks. Considering that there was still a couple of feet of snow in the yard and that they had to clear snow off the roof before they could actually start, they did a fabulous job and completed it much faster had we had expected.Daniel’s crew did a great job with the gutters, soffits and facia on the house. Likewise, JJ and his helper did a fantastic job on the garage… it looks like a new building! The new shingles look great and Mike and Mary and their crew were really great! They were all very pleasent to talk with and very considerate about keeping the yard clear of debris so we could get in and out while they were working. All-in-all it was a great experience. Thanks for the great job.

  • Wilderness Custom Exteriors was the easiest and best experience we’ve ever had with a contractor. Between our initial contact and completed roof, only three weeks elapsed, and that’s because we asked them not to come the first time they offered! When the crew did arrive, they were courteous, friendly, and efficient. Roofing our house and garage took only a single day, including shovelling a record snowfall out of the way to access the roof, and clearing three feet of snow from our garage. The crew cleaned up every visible nail, swept the exposed portions of our lot, and carted away all of the detritus. My favourite moment was watching the crew take a well-deserved break on the new roof of our garage to watch the sun set before driving away at the end of the day.

  • We were extremely delighted with the job done by Wilderness Exteriors. From the initial estimation to the removal of the old siding,the installation of the Hardie Plank, the trim painting and the gutter work the whole process was first-class, efficient and highly professional. All those involved were extremely personable and accommodating.If we were to do the renovation again Wilderness would be our company of choice. We highly recommend them in all aspects.

  • To Jeff, Wilderness RoofingOn behalf of my wife Joan and I, I commend you and your crews for the prompt and efficient work you did to our home – siding, roofing, and gutters. All workers were courteous and very thorough in doing their jobs and we are very happy with the complete job.

  • “Prompt – Thorough – Professional”. Wilderness Roofing offered impeccable service for the reroofing project on my home. After many roof leaks appeared inside my house, Wilderness’s team of professional roofers stepped in and uncovered several roofing short-cuts left by a previous contractor (which eventually caused water damage inside my home). Wilderness Roofing then provided me with a water-proof membrane and top quality shingles, so my home is now impermeable to future water damage. Everything about the project from the word “go” went like clock-word. Their team of workers were time-efficient, friendly, and excellent to deal with. Very impressed. I’m very happy to give Wilderness Roofing my highest recommendation.

  • Last Monday I called Jeff to set up a time to replace our roof and by the time I returned home from work on Friday of the same week, the whole job was finished! The two roofers who did the work were thoroughly professional, efficient and look to have done an outstanding job. Everything was so clean after they left that apart from the Wilderness sign and great looking new roof, you wouldn’t notice that they’d even been here.Hey, where else in this super-busy town can you get service like that? Jeff, please let those guys know what a great job they did! Assuming the new roof holds up for many years to come, I’d recommend your company and crew without any hesitation. Amazing!

  • Jeff, on behalf of Audrey and myself, I want to thank you and your crew for doing such a quick and professional job reroofing our house and helping us through dealing with the insurance company. The crew was a good bunch of young guys who worked hard and were willing to answer any and all questions. You were/are the consummate sales guy who could not only sell shingles and painting to Saskatoonians but who could sell snow to the Inuit! I did recommend you to some of our neighbours and at least one of them has had the same crew here this week doing his roof. They are, as I write this note, finishing up. If anyone of my other references has you do their work, I can only hope that a Montreal Canadiens mug would appear on my front step.!? Thanks again Jeff and crew. Nothing beats good customer service, good product and professional staff!Go Habs and have a great rest of the season.

  • The sales presentation was professional, the workmanship was done as promised, and the installers were friendly and courteous. The Team Leaders, Matt and Shannon, kept us well informed and had their teams working together superbly to replace our very tired, cedar shakes with rich-textured asphalt shingles. It was a very cost effective alternative and turned out absolutely beautiful! We added a recommended raised ridge capping to capture some of the chunky look of the old cedar shakes which also enhanced the architectural lines of the roof creating a greater street appeal. We are extremely happy with the results.
    Randy and Diane
  • We had a great experience with Jeff and his crew when we had our shingles replaced. Jeff was very knowledgeable, fair, and prompt. The crew was extremely courteous and acted in a very professional manner. The job was done as Jeff had promised, and we were wonderfully surprised as how easy it was. Our shingles look absolutely fantastic, and we would undoubtedly recommend Jeff and his crew to anyone else looking to have their shingles replaced.

  • Just wanted to tell you how pleased we were to have your company re-shingle and repair our roof and install new gutters. You were very prompt in providing a quote and the work was completed in a short time frame. The guys doing the job on the roof were skilled, courteous and friendly and cleaned up nicely as well. The three amigos who replaced the gutters were here the day after the roof was completed, and again, were polite friendly and efficient! We appreciated the promptness of getting the work done and the quality of the work itself. Very professional. We would not hesitate to recommend your company to others. Keep up the good work.

  • Just a quick note to let you now how pleased Jerri and I are with the roofing job you did for us recently. Everything went as promised and like clockwork from start to finish. The roofing looks fabulous thanks to the suggestion you made on choosing a darker colour. Your crew left the place clean and tidy, and the refuse bin was picked up right away.Thanks again,
    Dick and Jerri Noordman
  • Meant to send a thank you to you and your staff for the quality workmanship and professionalism from each person on site. From the siding crew, insulation installer and even your roofing crew from a couple years back were very cordial to my wife and kids as well as myself. We are extremely satisfied with the siding work recently completed on our house. Your promised timeline for completion, price and color choice were spot on. People walking along our street stop and appear to be admiring the renewed look of our house.All the best to your and your staff,
    Larry & Leslie Weippert
  • Thanks again for your enthusiastic service re-roofing our 2 houses. We appreciated the efficient job and the thorough clean up. Your explanations were very helpful. The speed of the roofing teams and the 3 amigos eavestrough experts were amazing. The raised sections on our dormers and steep roof added a distinctive look to our 1930 home. We recommend you heartily.Thanks again

  • My husband and I just recently had our cedar siding house recovered in Hardie Plank by two wonderful men, named Steve and Glen who work for Wilderness Exteriors. Here is a list of the reasons we would recommend those wonderful workers: – Both are punctual – They work really well as a team and make sure they check in with the owners and their expectations in order to prevent misunderstanding on a regular basis. – Both are knowledgeable and helpful in recommendations when the unexpected occurs, as is so often the case with renovations. – The site was left with a garbage bad firmly tied for the night. – The best part was their creativity in making our home and shed look special with finishing touches. Both our shed and outdoor storage cupboard needed doors recovered and these were done exceedingly well.Thanks to Steve and Glen we have a new look to our older home.We would recommend these men to anyone building or renovating a home.
