What Our Customers Say

“I can comapre Lifetime's work to another company's for awnings on my home in Gabriola to manage summer heat. The first company from Vancouver was unresponsive and proposed expensive solutions. Fortunately, Budget Blinds recommended Lifetime. Mark listened, offered cost-effective options, and provided seamless installation, solving challenges with mounting on our cedar siding and matching our home's colours. They delivered and installed ahead of schedule, exceeding expectations. Mark and Rob were great communicators and pleasant to work with. Grateful for their excellent service.”
