We take the time to source quality products from trusted manufacturers so you can be assured that you are getting the best value for your investment.

We offer installation of everything we sell with expert craftsmanship. Our installers are professionals who specialize in their field and take great pride in the work they do. We believe installation is the most important factor in ensuring the longevity and performance of our product, so all of our installations are backed by a five-year installation warranty.

Van Dolder’s Home Team® installers are covered under WSIB and we carry a $5 million liability insurance policy for your peace of mind.  This coverage assures you that, if an accident should happen, you are protected and not liable.

All the products that we carry are also available for sale to contractors and homeowners who prefer to do their own installation. For your convenience, products can be picked up in our fully stocked warehouse or you can have your order delivered to your home or jobsite.

The Van Dolder’s Custom Exteriors Story

Van Dolder’s Custom Exteriors is a Canadian, family-owned business that has operated in Southern Ontario for over 50 years. It all began from the back of a pick-up truck, offering great products at affordable prices. Eventually, the company’s reputation for honesty, reliability and solid value led to the opening of a small showroom in Annan, Ontario. As the business grew, they soon built their first, now signature, village-style showroom in Owen Sound. In 2018, to meet the demand for quality home improvement products and services, another 18,000 sq. ft. showroom was built in Collingwood. Today, the company continues to be family-owned and supported by a strong management team and a growing number of professional builders and installers.

Andy Van Dolder

Andy Van DolderFounder

Andy Van Dolder began his career in the home improvement business in his teens, selling aluminum doors for his brother out of the back of his pick up truck. In 1964 he opened a business called Cash & Carry Aluminum in Annan, Ontario just outside of Owen Sound. As Andy’s sons, Kris and Tim joined the business and over time their view and vision of the business grew into what is now known as Van Dolders Home Team.  In 2000, the business expanded to have a secondary location set up in Collingwood Ontario.  Andy, Kris and Tim continued to expand the business and in 2009 a village-style showroom was built just off Hwy 26 in Owen Sound.  In 2018 they constructed a new facility in Collingwood on mountain road featuring their trademark village-style showroom. Andy Passed away suddenly on March 4, 2019, at the age of 71.  His son Kris continues to carry on his legacy with the Van Dolder’s Home Team.
