J & K went out of their way to help me find a match for my siding. The workers cleaned everything up as they were doing the job, and when they left, it was perfect—the siding, the roof, and the cleanup. It still looks perfect today after the winter. I'd give them an A.
They were efficient, and everything was great. They did the roof and siding, and they got it done productively. The customer service was excellent. They're an A+.
J & K was very neat. They did what they said they were going to do, and they did a great job. They replaced our roof and our siding. The customer service was very good, and any time I called, they responded right away. They're A+.
They did good work, and they were very prompt. They put on vinyl siding for me. I would say they were an A+.
They did siding work for us. The representative was really extremely helpful. I think his name was Joe. He handled the whole project, he came back and checked to be sure that it was done correctly, and he put up the numbers on the house for us. He just was really good. I chose them because our insurance company recommended them. I'd give them an A.
They showed up when they were supposed to, and they cleaned up very well. They cleaned up the yard, which was important. They replaced the siding, the roof, and the shutters. The customer service was very good. I chose J & K Home Improvement because they came highly recommended to us from a friend. They get an A from me.
They worked with me on everything, like dealing with the insurance and all that. They did roof and siding work for me. Jerry was very good to deal with—he was the salesman. I chose them because they did a roof for my parents a couple of years ago, and my parents were happy with them.
They were very professional, and they did a good job. They repaired the damage. I found J & K Home Improvement through my insurance company. They get an A+.
They actually did a really good job, and they followed up. I can't believe they did it in cold weather, but they did, and it appears to be a fine job. They worked quickly. They took off all the siding and replaced all the siding, and they also put on a new roof and tore off all of the old one, of course. The customer service was very good. They did the roof in two days in September, and then we were waiting on windows. We also had those done, but they were from a different company. The windows didn't come in until November, so they actually did the siding in November after the windows went in. It took them three days. The job looks fine today. I'd give them a good, solid A grade.
The service was good. We dealt with Joe, and he was very friendly and very knowledgeable. They did my roof and the front siding. The customer service was very good. I'd give them an A grade.
