Echols did siding for me, and it was a very positive experience. Everything about how they conducted their business—the explanations and the work—stood out. They were very clear, very helpful, friendly, and polite. They cleaned up afterward, and I was extremely pleased. They're definitely an A.

Echols is very good. They do what you want, they do it in a good way, they do it on time, and they clean up. They're coming back to do some more work on the house, and I think that's the best recommendation anyone can give. They are an A.

Echols does quality work. They did my siding. They do what they say they'll do, and they finish on time. I'd give them an A+.

The guys that came out repaired my siding in a timely manner. They were nice and pleasant to work with—I'd give them an A.

We used Echols. They did some repairs, and they were really good. The repair itself is holding up quite well. They're an A+.

They did siding on the chimney, and they built a cabinet for my oven. They were very professional, and they used quality materials. It's an A+ for them.

“I've used Echols for repairs. They cleaned up after themselves, and I would use them again.”

They explained everything, and they steered me toward the new specifications that had to be met. They took the old deck down completely, and they built a new one. The deck size is exactly the same as it was, but now it's a lot sturdier. They also replaced my siding last year. They'd be an A.

They're great. I had them do siding for me. They kept it clean, they did a good job, the estimate was correct, and they followed up with me. I liked everything. I would grade them an A+.

I used Home Reports to find Echols. It went just fine, and I believe we're having them back out to do some additional work. They replaced some wood that had become water damaged and rotten. The guy was a master carpenter—he knew what he was doing. He was able to tell me from the beginning, once he tore into it, exactly what it was going to take, and that's exactly what it was. He had recommendations, and he said, 'I can do it this way or this way. This way is cheaper; you do it this way, and this will never happen again.' He explained why, and I appreciated that. I'd give him an A+.

We use Echols for the siding and the windows. They're wonderful because they work with you on payment plans. They're not pushy, they work around your schedule, and they keep everything clean—amazing.

They replaced the siding on the side of my house. They did good-quality work, and they finished the job in a reasonable amount of time. I would recommend them. I would call them an excellent—an A.

Echols did some siding a couple years ago. It was excellent. We also had them do a roof a couple years ago, and it was excellent. I can’t tell you how wonderful they are.

Echols—I love that company. I was impressed with how professional they were and with the quality of work—very impressed. They definitely get an A.

For siding, I used Echols, and they did a really good job. They removed my siding and put up Hardie siding, and then they painted it. The foreman was very good about answering all my questions—just very respectful. It’s holding up. I’d give them an A.

Echols did my siding, and they did good, quality work. It’s an A.

I would recommend Echols to anybody. They did our siding job, and they were excellent. Echols was down-to-earth, straight to the point, and very trustworthy. They were very thorough and checked everything. The foreman really took care of me.

Echols was very good. What stood out about them was their customer service and the quality of their work.

“I used Echols to put on new siding. They did a great job. They used fiber cement siding and painted the house afterwards. I was happy with all of their work.”

I used Echols for some siding repair work. They were good. They were very prompt, got everything done, and were very clean.

Great. I was very pleased, very pleased. They did the siding. I felt that the salesperson gave us good information. He took the time to answer questions. We weren’t sure of what we wanted to use, and he gave us the pros and cons of using different materials. When the team came out, everything just happened like the salesman said it was going to happen. Everything just went right into place.

Echols did an excellent job with the siding. I really just can’t say enough good things. I would recommend them to anybody.

I’ve used Echols on a couple of jobs, most recently siding, and I think they are a great company—ethical and straightforward. I trust them. I am happy with the work they did.

Echols did our siding work. They were great. They replaced some siding on the back of the house. They just did what they said they would do, and they did a good job. 

Their reputation was without blemish. I went with Echols, and I was not disappointed. The supervisor was right on the ball.  He took care of everything. I am very happy, and I would go with them again.

I got their name from your report. Actually, I asked them to come and give me an estimate for siding, and they did that promptly. They did a new siding job on the house, and they did an excellent job.

Doing the job right was very important to me. I was very satisfied with the work that was done. Not one problem.

Echols did a fantastic job on my siding. They were thorough. We were very pleased with them.

“I had siding done by Echols. That went great. It was done on the whole house. They were very timely.”

We did a siding job with Echols. I thought they did an excellently executed job of stripping off the siding and replacing it with a new, synthetic type of siding. They completely redid the entire house and cleaned up the job site. I haven't had a problem with it since. I would refer Echols to my friends.

I'm happy with the work they did for me. It was a couple of years ago. I'm happy with the work.

“Echols did my work. It went really well. I looked at one company, Echols, and one other company, and I guess they seemed the most honest. They weren't trying to sell me something, and they really noticed the details when they did their initial inspection. The value is very fair. I felt like I was going to get a quality result out of them, and so far I have. Echols was really good about letting me know that there was siding that needed to be repaired, so they did all of that with my roofing when they replaced the roof. That was really helpful.”
“I am familiar with Echols. I believe we used them. We were fine with it, and we were really satisfied. They did a little bit of repair work, nothing major. A little bit of stuff. I was familiar with the workers when they came out. Everything was fine, and we haven't had any problems.”

I went with Echols, and they did fine. I just liked the way the guy explained everything, and they did a good job.

Echols did our roof, and they were excellent. I would recommend them to anybody—in fact, I did to our neighbors. I know a couple of them used them. We actually had them do our siding job and our gutters also, and that was excellent. They seemed to know what they were doing. I called five or six other companies, and when I talked to each one of them, they were OK. Echols was down-to-earth, straight to the point, and I trusted them. And the job, when they finally came and did it, they did pretty quickly. They were very thorough and checked everything. The foreman was there every day, looking and taking care of and talking to me twice a day.

They were fine. They did the job, and they cleaned up.

I'm using Echols. They're doing it at this very moment. So far, so good.

I had Echols do roofing and siding. That was not this past year—it was the year before, I think. They did the roofing back in 2005, and maybe in 2008 or '09 they replaced the siding and did exterior painting along with that. I was very pleased with their work.

We did use them, and they were great. They were very precise in what they provided us as far as the service and did everything in a timely manner.

I went with Echols. Echols was fine—they were fantastic. They did exactly what they said they were going to do, and they were in and out in two days. There was no mess. They cleaned up everything—I didn't even know they were here. I had some rotten wood before. The house was about 25 years old. It was old wood, and I just had all the wood replaced with vinyl siding.

I used Echols. They came out and did what they said they were going to do. There wasn't any trouble. They came on time and everything. There was nothing else. They just came and did what they said they were going to do.

“It was Echols that I used. They did a good job. I would use them again. I preferred them to other people because of their service and quality of workmanship. And I trusted the guy. They were never out there talking and stuff. They would load up the truck.”

I went with Echols, and they installed it. My experience with them was perfectly good. I actually have had them do it twice. I just had them install, and I had them repeat it because they did what they said they would do, so no issues. Overall, I was satisfied. They charged me what they said they would. They showed up when they said they would. They did the work, and everything went very well.

They helped me. I thought they did an absolutely wonderful job. They went above the call of duty. In addition to doing a good job with the siding, they did things like repainting the deck and things like that. We've gotten new doors. Well, we got one new door from them and a new door from someone else a few months prior, and I was having a lot of trouble with that door sticking and shifting. They came out on a weekend and fixed it when they weren't even the ones that installed the door. They were here for some other work when I mentioned it. I thought it might be part of the siding somehow. I asked if they knew what was going on, and it took them an hour.

They did an excellent job, Echols. They were just professional, and they came in and did their job. I think they put it on all in one day, but they were very good.

We used Echols. I'm happy with Echols. They replaced our windows, our siding, and our roof. I had nothing but positive things to say about them, and I found them through your Home Reports book originally.

He did what he was supposed to do. They did what they're supposed to do, so I'd give them an A. That's hard to come by these days.

We did go with Echols, and we were very pleased. Well, when they came out, he looked at it and gave us an estimate and everything. He was very informative and very up-front and everything. And then they did a very good job and cleaned up nicely. All of the finances were handled just like they explained to us in the beginning, so we were pleased. We had a prefab chimney. The outside siding had rotted, and they had to take all that off and put new on.

We've used Echols for two houses. I highly recommend them. In fact, I've got a friend that's going to use them in a few weeks. They're doing their windows. I like the fact that they're a small, family-owned company and that they come when they say they're going to come. They are very efficient, and they clean up after themselves. They are on time, and they really work the whole time they are here. The people that do the supervision are top-notch—Mark Ashe could not be beat, as far as I'm concerned, with personal service. Anytime we've had a problem and called them, they've fixed it right away. And like I've said, they've done a lot for us. They did siding on my mother's house, and 32 windows, and a new roof. They also did our new roof with about 28 windows here and siding on the back of the house. We have been more than pleased.

We did use Echols for the siding and roofing, and they did a great job. We found them in your book. There was damage on the siding where my husband was too lazy to clean out the gutter, so we had to pay money to get it fixed. You need to do the maintenance. That's all that needs to done. You do the maintenance, and you don't have to pay as much money. So it was a repair. It was my entire sunroom that had to be repaired for the siding. It took probably three days. They were very professional, and everything went well.

Echols did a fantastic job on my siding. A

They removed the old siding and put HardiePlank on. They replaced a couple of windows, and they put a roof on. They extended the back deck, and they turned it into a nice, screened-in porch. I had a couple of questions, and they came out and looked at stuff and fixed it immediately. I had their sign out on the front yard. The sign fell over, and the winds were so strong that it broke. So I tried duct taping it to the mailbox, but that wouldn't hold. I'd give them about an A+. Their workmanship was great. Their customer service couldn't be better. The technicians and workers were terrific. They cleaned up after themselves, and they were good. They also put up shutters and built a deck for us. They extended the deck and screened the porch.

I used Echols for the siding. I had HardiePlank siding and vinyl sockets and gutters. Echols did the gutters, too. They actually had somebody come check the roof, because I had a question about a couple of things. And he said there was nothing really wrong with it. Overall, I was very happy with Echols. They installed the vinyl shutters, too. They did a really good job.

Echols replaced the siding on the garage and the side of the house with HardiePlank siding. The rest of the house is brick. They also replaced the gutter on the garage. They're an A company. They also replaced our front door. We had double doors, and they strangely swung outward. Echols replaced it with a single door that swings inward.

We went with Echols. They installed vinyl siding, and they did a great job.

I replaced my cedar with HardiePlank last year, and I hired Echols. So many things about Echols stood out: professionalism, customer service, excellent response time, good quality of work, and quick cleanup. They did exactly what they said they would do—incredibly reliable. I also used Echols for some repair work that needed to be done on my roof. I had a problem with water leaking in my house, and they fixed it. They did a lot for me.

I'd give Echols an A. They always do a good job, and my husband and I like them a lot.

“I got Echols about three or four years ago through your book. Echols was great. They did roofing and siding. It was on time, it was prompt, and it was well cared for. They cared about it, and they had good customer service. A few months after that, one of the pieces of siding blew off, and they came and fixed it. Of course, it was free just like they said it would be. It was no problem, and they came very quickly. I was kind of worried, but they fixed everything with no problem. I've had contact with Echols recently. There was some kind of scam going on, so he sent information to all his customers to watch out for it. I thought that was kind of nice.”

The experience with Echols was fantastic. They did what they said they would do, cleaned up their mess, and they didn't take forever to get it done. They were very personable.

“My feedback is extremely positive for Echols. I got them to do my roof, and they did such a good job on that, I got them to do my siding with HardiePlank. I also got them to do my deck with a stretch deck. Then they painted the house exterior as well. I did a lot of business with them, and in each of those different steps, I think they were very proactive on response, and I just can't say enough nice things about them. Echols did the majority of the exterior work. I just have good things to say about those guys. As a matter of fact, I recommended them to somebody else who did their roof, and they said that they did a phenomenal job as well. Everything that they did was great, so I just can't say enough good about those guys.”

I know on roofing I used Echols. I believe we got that from your magazine a few years back. We needed new siding, and I think that the contractor did all of that. They were great, and their crews were great. They were all professional.

Echols did the work from start to finish. They did an excellent job, and it was done timely. I never had a complaint about it. It was just really a good job, and I was pleased with it.

I'd give Echols an A. They were great.

They were terrific. They not only came back once, but they came back twice. I was very, very pleased with the young man that was here, and I would recommend them to anybody.

I used Echols for a job and was satisfied with them. I would recommend them.

They were terrific, they did a wonderful job, and it looks great. They cleaned up. I give them an A.

I used Echols, and I would rate them highly. They were efficient, prompt, and pretty much on top of everything—as expected.

I used Echols for my siding, and they did a wonderful job. They did siding for my whole house. They've also done gutter cleaning and replacement.

I used Echols, and I was happy with them. They were the best ever. I mean, they were awesome. I liked that I dealt with one of the owners directly. I liked dealing with him directly, and their crews were very professional. Everybody was. I got them out of your book too, and also the HardiePlank website. The painters that Echols used were incredible.

I think it's Echols we used. I was happy with them. They did a great and quick job, which is what we were looking for.
