Woodside is a family owned exterior siding company that provides a one-stop-shop experience for home builders and contractors alike in Chilliwack and the Fraser Valley. Providing top-tier, innovative materials, consultation, and installation, we are focused on building beautiful, durable communities.
‘Home is where the heart is’ – I believe this wholeheartedly, and as a result I put my heart and soul into what we do. Some people might say ‘You just do construction’ but I know we’re doing a lot more. I believe that we make a difference in the lives of our clients and our community. I love what we do and enjoy every step of the construction process. Woodside Enterprises is part of our family, and we’re extremely proud of what we’ve accomplished together.
Focused on Customers and Employees.
We believe that in order to be a customer-focused company, we have to be an employee-focused team. In our experience, with the right staff, we can achieve the highest level of service and workmanship. Every team member is an expert who is totally committed to getting the details right and treating customers with respect and professionalism.
From One Expert to Many
Ever since I was young I loved to build and create things. I knew at a very young age that it was something I wanted to pursue as a career. Now it has grown into a company that is one of my greatest passions. Nothing makes me happier than doing what I love and working with people I admire and respect. Woodside has become a way that my love of building can be shared with my community and that I can share with my family as well as our staff and clients. Jamie, Owner
Jamie Francis founded Woodside in 2006. At that time, the company was just Jamie, his tools, and his truck. He did everything, from sourcing the work to pricing the project, from picking up the materials to installing them himself. Because he started out on his own, Jamie is an expert in exterior finishing, from start to finish. Nowadays, he prides himself on training his team members to be experts in their own right.
Tiffany Francis officially joined Woodside in 2013. She is the member of the team whom you may not see, but she’s always working hard to take care of your project. As Woodside’s lead administrator, human resources director, and project coordinator, she plays many indispensable roles. Her extensive experience in residential, commercial, and industrial construction allows her to organize projects for maximum efficiency.
In 15 years, Woodside has grown from a one-man crew to a multi-crew organization with work vans, an extensive array of equipment, and a specialised gutter machine. We are experts in exterior finishing and enjoy every aspect of it.
We take pride in the fact that even though Woodside has grown, it remains a family company. Every team member is valued, respected, and supported. We believe the only way to serve our customers with all that we have is to work and grow together as a team.
A FORCE to be reckoned with
We know that we’re not just making buildings more beautiful through our exterior finishing work. We’re helping to create communities. To keep us focused on that extremely meaningful mission, we have carefully built our culture at Woodside. This culture guides us, supports us, and helps us to remember why we go to work each day.
FORCE is the acronym we use to describe this culture. It stands for:
F – Future & Family Focused
Our work is an investment into the well-being of families—our own, as well as the ones who will benefit from our projects. We’re focused on making the future as healthy and happy for these families as possible.
O – Opportunity for Growth & Advancement
Each team member at Woodside is capable of greatness. We encourage that by extending opportunities to learn, acquire new skills, and develop as people.
R – Respect & Resilience
It all starts with respect. Respect for one another, respect for clients, respect for ourselves. Respect makes us stronger, more resilient, and more effective as individuals and as a team.
C – Connection through Communication
Transparent, regular, clear, and respectful communication helps us to nurture great relationships between team members and with clients.
E – Excellence Always
No matter what, we will always deliver the best possible outcomes. We help create the most attractive, durable, and functional exteriors possible, and embrace excellence-oriented business practices at all times.
The FORCE that’s created from the combination of these values is helping us to establish a legacy for Woodside. Our culture involves our team members, our clients, and the communities our projects impact; we want our legacy to show that we cared passionately about all of these people. Above all else, this care makes us a FORCE to be reckoned with.
