Meet the Van Dolders

Andy Van Dolder

Andy Van DolderVan Dolder's Custom Exteriors

Andy Van Dolder began his career in the home improvement business in his teens, selling doors for his brother out of the back of his truck. In 1964, he opened a business called Cash and Carry Aluminum in Annan, just outside of Owen Sound. After many years of success, he grew the business into what is now the Van Dolder’s Home Team. His sons, Kris and Tim, joined the team in 2009 when they constructed the new village-style showroom at their current location on Highway 26 in Owen Sound. In 2000, they expanded to a second location in Collingwood, and in 2018, they constructed a new facility on Mountain Road in Collingwood featuring their trademark village-style showroom. Andy passed away suddenly on March 4th, 2019 at the age of 71. His sons, Kris and Tim, continue to carry on his legacy with the Van Dolder’s Home Team.

Kris began working as a teen in the Cash and Carry Aluminum warehouse during his summers and thrived in the hands-on environment. From there, he worked as a siding installer, learning the trade as he worked his way through university. After graduating, Kris rejoined Cash and Carry Aluminum, scheduling installers and pricing products. Today, Kris runs Van Dolder’s Custom Exteriors in Owen Sound. He uses his experience and expertise to contribute to all aspects of the business, whether it’s scheduling and pricing or installing windows and doors. Before settling down with his wife Cindy and their two sons, Jarrett and Reid, Kris spent his winters snowmobiling across North America, a hobby he still enjoys to this day.

He started out unloading aluminum siding and making deliveries, and moved onto management and sales after graduating university. In 2000, he led the opening of Van Dolder’s Home Renovation Centre in Collingwood, which grew year-after-year. In 2018, he expanded their reach in Collingwood with the opening of a brand new 18,000 square foot facility on Mountain Road. The new location offers the Home Team’s trademark village-style showroom with products on display. Tim lives in the Town of the Blue Mountains with his wife Lisa, and sons, Jakob and Benjamin, where he enjoys all the outdoor activities the area has to offer including golf and skiing.
