As Property Managers you have a huge responsibility to the owners of the complex that has hired you to represent and manage their complex. You need to find companies that you can count on to do good work at a fair price. Companies that understand that these are people’s homes and that they need to feel comfortable with the tradesmen and workers who are on the site. You want a company that can handle all of the parts of the project without requiring a babysitter to constantly follow through on getting the repair people to do what they said they would do. You need an honest company with a long track record of quality business in British Columbia. Stucco Doctor fulfills all of these requirements and much, much more. We have made a career out of Stucco care and restoration, from cleaning, patch and repair, upgrades and improvements, and comprehensive reports and analysis of the needs of a complex including complete building envelope renovation. We have done this work not for a decade or two but for multiple generations spanning almost 60 years…..and still never an unsatisfied complaint! We have worked for such Greater Vancouver management companies as: Century 21 Prudential, Crosby, Profile, ColyVan, Realacorp, Teamwork, Bayside, BayWest, Coldwell Banker, Gateway, StrataC0, Kyle Properties, Vancouver Condominium Services, Ascent Property Management and many others. Our Victoria branch works with Cornerstone, Brown Brothers, Devon, Boormans, Pro-line and many others. Why do these and other companies continue to use the Stucco Doctor? …..because of the quality of our work, our fair pricing and our hassle free professional service. You don’t need another headache!! …… you need someone to solve the problem not create one. We can help you and the Strata find solid, cost effective solutions to your stucco problems, or your building envelope concerns. We can make recommendations that will not put you on some leaky condo blacklist….so that no one will buy your properties and the banks won’t lend money to those who do. We find the positive aspects of your property, we find the weakness and then put together a program to incorporate a plan on how to utilize the good and eliminate the bad without tearing off everything.
