They came and knocked on my door when they came and when they were getting started, and then they said goodbye when they were done. They did a really good job. We have not had any water in the basement since, and they did a really good job with the follow-up. The only thing I didn't like is that, afterward, we got a couple of advertisement emails from Lake Cook Exteriors for some other things they do, like windows or doors or something, and I definitely didn't sign up for that. Nobody needs more email advertisement. Based on my experience, I'd give them an A overall.”

“Lake Cook Exteriors worked on the gutters for me. I have used the company before. They were surprisingly good for a job that wasn't that big. I have a home in a wooded area. A tree fell on the home and destroyed an area of the gutters that Lake Cook had installed ten years earlier. They were very quick on coming out to give an estimate, and they informed me that they thought that the color match might be a little off because it was matching an older gutter, but the color match was perfect. I cannot tell that they did any repair. Although it was not a big job, they treated me as if it was a big job. They made me feel as if this job was a priority. I'm normally a pretty tough grader, and I don't give anybody A's, but I would give Lake Cook an A. I would tell my neighbors to use them, too.”

I heard about the company from a friend and neighbor of mine—he had Lake Cook do a little bit of gutter work for him last fall. I would give them an A.”

They had to replace a gutter that got bent up by a branch, and I asked them to put covers on so that leaves don't get in the gutters. They cleaned them and put gutter covers on them. They did it when they said they were going to do it, and everything was all cleaned up and done the way it was supposed to be done. Ten or twelve years ago, they did some work for me. I think they did gutters for me then and downspouts and fascia and everything, and they did a really good job, and that's why I remembered them and used them again. Their customer service was very good. The president of the company is the guy that came out as a salesman the very first time that I used them. I guess I'd give them an A+.
