"I have had the pleasure of working with Westerly Restoration for several years now. David Darby, the owner, is very professional and has an excellent understanding of the building code and building envelope requirements. Westerly Restoration's work is exceptional and they are always professional when on a job site.
In addition to their quick response time for site visits and quotes, they work hard to schedule their quote visits and subsequent work around my clients' needs. My Strata Councils' appreciate David's willingness to meet with them to answer questions.
In short, they make my job easier, which gives me more time to focus on my clients."

The Wynford Group
"I've had the pleasure of working with David Darby on multiple occasions. He is an organized contractor, who keeps the work sites extremely clean and tidy. I have witnessed him being very helpful with home owners or apartment building unit occupants alike. I can wholeheartedly recommend his services to anybody who needs a reliable and experienced contractor."
Building Envelope Consultant
"David is a veteran general contractor who has repaired many buildings. I found that David's team approaches repairs in a practical manner and that repairs are professionally executed.
Lastly, David does not waste time on a project. I've seen him repair a building in 12 weeks where 3 elevations of the building were being recladded."
"The building envelope of our six-unit Strata was in need of repair following water ingress and we obtained quotes from a number of builders. The most detailed and thorough was provided by Westerly Restoration and we hired them to repair the damage.
In addition to doing the job in a meticulous and professional manner, Westerly kept us informed throughout the repair process by itemizing all work to be done, showing us where and how this repair was actually being accomplished and explaining how the rain screening they installed will prevent future water ingress. The work was done on time with an iron-clad guarantee. On top of this, the value-for-money could not have been better. We certainly will use Westerly Restoration in future if the need arises. All of us highly recommend David Darby's company."
"We had the misfortune of having to endure some extensive renovations this fall. Although this is a situation that is not ideal, especially when trying to run a business, Westerly Restoration definitely made it as positive for us as possible. Their personable and professional attitude was alwyas a welcome sight. The focus on "getting the job done right" was very reassuring. Dave and his crew were were attentive to any questions or concerns we had adn left our site remarkably clean at the end of each day. A big thank you to David and the boys!"
The Keg Restaurant
"We are a seventeen-unit co-op located in Kitsilano, Vancouver. In the past two years, Westerly Restoration, under David's supervision, has undertaken several projects for the co-op, for the most part involving replacement of waterproof membranes on several concrete balconies. This work also involved removal and replacement of outside wall sections along with sliding doors. In all of this, I have been impressed with the competence of the various trades-people involved, as well as their punctuality, and their diligence in carrying out their assignments. David himself appears to have a very sound and up-to-date knowledge of building methods and materials, particularly when it comes to waterproofing, and I can confidently recommend his company for similar work, or anything else they judge themselves competent to handle."

"Westerly Restoration is one of the most professional siding and building contractors I've ever encountered.
They are affordable, do phenomenal work, show up when they say they will, have incredible attention to detail and are all around great people.
They have turned going the extra mile into an art form, and will leave you with beautiful work, done on time and on budget.
It was an absolute pleasure working with Westerly Restoration and I would highly recommend them."
"One of the key factors that will define a good business is the quality of their Client Service. In any competitive industry it can be one of the few distinctive factors between companies. It can also make one company rise above the rest. It's my pleasure to speak about David Darby and Westerly Restoration.
David stands out as a craftsman who takes pride in quality work. He is knowledgeable, stays on top of and is often a step ahead of Industry Standards. He is dedicated and shows integrity and these qualities are reflected in the Trades that he deals with. He only uses quality material and his pricing is more than reasonable. He goes the extra mile and is hands above many for his Client Service!
We had all the balconies replaced on our building, which was a major undertaking. David was here every day at least 30 min ahead of the crew. All the work for the day was planned and organized ready for the work to start. As a member of the strata council I received daily reports on the progress of the work. David was on top of the work and responded immediately if any issues arose. What was a pleasant surprise to me was the attitude of the Trades. They were friendly, hard working and competent throughout the entire project.
Westerly Restoration delivers on Quality. I wouldn't hesitate for one moment in recommending David Darby and his company Westerly Restoration for completing any work required whether it be for your home, a residential high rise or a commercial building."
"I would highly recommend David Darby, Westerly Restoration.
I found myself in a very challenging situation last spring with water issues in the building envelope of our small, self-managed building. I spoke to several companies & David was the only contractor that was willing to spent extra time talking to me & attending meetings with other owners, to help find a reasonable & affordable solution to our building issues.
I found David to be honest, knowledgeable & his work of very high quality.
His employees were friendly & courteous & the work was finished in a timely fashion.
Everyone in the building is very happy with the final results of the work done."

"Westerly Restorations completed our basement renovation in January 2012. They turned a space we only used a few days a year to a space we love to use every day! We were so impressed with the work ethic and workmanship on that renovation that when we needed our decks restored and new windows installed this June (2013) we didn't hesitate to call them back.
We were equally impressed with David and Westerly Restorations during this project. David is very professional and always makes the time to answer questions, provide options and come out to the jobsite.
The Westerly Restorations crew are all very personable, capable and went above and beyond to ensure minimal inconvenience to our family during both renovation / restoration projects. At the end of each day, they cleaned their work area and ensured any nails and screws were picked up so we didn't have to worry about our children and dog playing in the yard after they left.
We are so pleased with our restored decks and we would absolutely recommend Westerly Restorations to anyone who wants their restoration or renovation project done right."
