How can I tell an honest home improvement company from the rest?
One of the things we’ve done to help consumers is to create a “Contractor Standards Guide.” It’s free and unbiased. View our “Contractor Standards Guide” here. In addition to this, always visit national trade organization websites to see who is a member, visit manufacturer websites, and research your local Better Business Bureau.
Do you warranty your work?
Yes. In fact, we are so confident in our ability to provide you with high-quality products and installation practices, that we offer an industry leading 10-year workmanship warranty.
I keep hearing about a lifetime warranty on the roofs you install. What is this about?
We are glad you asked! Due to the certification level we hold with GAF and Certainteed, we are able to offer a full 50-year non-prorated warranty against manufacturer defects and a full 25-year non-prorated warranty on our installation, both backed by each manufacturer!
Can you provide references/recommendations?
We will be glad to provide you with a customized list of references that have had similar projects completed in your area. We even offer addresses where you can actually see the quality of our work. We also encourage you to check out our testimonials!
How long will my project take?
The timeframe for any exterior project depends on the size of the job and the detail involved. A project can take anywhere from 1 day to 4 weeks. Once the contract has been solidified, Contract Exteriors will be able to provide a more detailed assessment of the duration of your project.
Can you tell me how much this will cost?
There are many variables that go into pricing the exterior work on your home. Once we meet with you and determine your needs, we will be able to provide you with a free estimate. Our process is NEVER a high-pressure sales approach. We believe our customers need to make informed decisions, so we like to consider ourselves more of a construction consultant than just a contractor.
Where can I learn more about the products you offer?
If you visit the specific service page you’re interested in, we will give you a brief overview on the materials and manufacturers we partner with. Or, if you would like to learn more about Roofing, Siding, Decking, or Windows, give us a call and we would be happy to provide you with samples, brochures and answer any questions you have.
How can I figure out what my return on investment will be if I replace my roof, siding, deck or windows?
Since Contract Exteriors is a large exterior remodeling contractor, we have access to industry-leading reports for our customers. A great way to understand what the ROI will be for any exterior enhancement would be to view the “Remodeling Industry Cost vs Value” report. You can view this by clicking here.
