Hi, I’m Paul Little, owner of Blue Jay Exterior Renovations. I joined the siding industry in 2012 when I moved back home to Edmonton after finishing graduate school in Ontario. I can’t say it was a lifelong passion for siding that got me here, or that my parents raised me in the construction industry - I was just trying to pay off my student loans! I started in a business development position with James Hardie Building Products, and that’s how my passion for exteriors began.
As a proud Edmontonian, I love seeing new trends in design starting to show up in our neighbourhoods (I’m guessing you might be tired of white or beige vinyl siding too). During my career I’ve enjoyed working with architects, builders, and designers, helping them achieve their vision while keeping costs in line. To this day I love driving by the projects I worked on. But the most satisfying part of my job was to speak to a homeowner who loved the design of their home’s exterior – especially if I was able to help them along the way!
Over the years, I’ve noticed that there’s something missing in Edmonton. While there are many exterior contractors that will accept a renovation project, there are very few companies that are tailored to serve homeowners directly. Most renovation contractors in Edmonton are either general contractors who don’t focus on siding, or siding contractors who don’t focus on renovations. This leaves Edmontonians with few options when it comes to a true siding renovation specialist.
That’s why after more than 5 years in the industry, I decided to start a new challenge. I left my job and started Blue Jay Exterior Renovations! Our goal is to to create a better experience for anyone in or around Edmonton who wants to renovate their home’s exterior. We focus ONLY on single home renovation projects, which means that our process is tailored to you, your family, and your home.
My personal cell number and email address are listed on the Contact page of our website. If you’d like to discuss an upcoming project, want to know more about the options for your home, or even if you just want to say “Hi!”, I’ll be happy to chat. Book your free consultation today!
