“We had extraordinary experiences with Home Exterior Systems twice. Their communication is second to none. They follow up well. The workers are polite and competent, and they clean up. There isn't ever any problem if we have a question or we need some kind of clarification. It's excellent—A+++. I'm extremely likely to recommend them.”

“I had an incredible experience—positive plus. The work was done very well. It was done in a timely manner, and it was kept clean. They did a HardiePlank soffit. There's no way animals can get through that, so it's wonderful. I would grade them as an A+. I've already recommended them to a lot of people.”

“I would say they were great from start to finish. They replaced the siding. They were professional. They were done quickly. They're definitely an A.”

“It was a very positive experience. They replaced the siding on our house, the Hardie Plank siding, and then repainted. I never give anybody a perfect score, so I'm just going to grade them an A.”

“They did the siding on the outside of the house. I guess they're an A+. Sometimes it was a little bit tough getting in touch with them, but once they got here it was fine.”

“They did an exterior siding and soffit replacing. I'd rate them as an A+.”

“They replaced some cedar with Hardie Plank. I'd give them an A grade, I had no problems.”

“I had a really good experience. They completely re-sided my whole house. I'd give them an A. They did a really good, really fine job.”

“I think they did the roof. They re-did the roof, siding on the entire exterior of our home and guest house, a variety of different projects. I'm not really involved in the process. I would give them an A overall.”

“They replaced the siding of my home with Hardie Plank. There were a couple of issues, but I don't know if it's what you would expect or not. Overall, I was happy with it, but there were a lot of hiccups. I'd say they're an A-.”

“It was a positive experience.”

“They replaced the siding. I give them an A.”

“They did well. They replaced some baseboards and soffits in my house then painted it. They were good on their word. They did what they said they were going to do, and were quicker than I anticipated. They did a really good job. They're an A.”

“They did our siding. We would definitely use them again.”

“Home Exterior Systems did some siding; they did well. I like that they were in constant communication with me via phone. I'd give them an A.”

“They did siding, painting, caulking, and windows. It was a completely positive experience. I'd say they're an A.”

“The materials and workmanship were very, very good. They did siding replacement and painting, and they did the entire house. The job went by rather quickly, and it was completed very neatly. I would give Home Exterior Systems an A+ rating.”

“The way Home Exterior Systems does business made the experience positive for me. The customer service was good. Everything about them was good. I wish I could find a fault, but I can't—they're A+.”

“It was done very well. If there was anything I needed them to address, they sent people out on time, and they got it done. The latest job was replacing siding on the house and the garage and, of course, painting it. I chose them because we'd had them do some windows a few years ago. They get an A grade from me.”

“Home Exterior Systems did a good job. I didn't have to worry about them—they did their job. It rained a lot, and it took longer than expected, but they were out there every chance they got. They did siding for me. I chose them because the people who owned the house before me set up a contract with them. I'd give them an A.”

“They did the work in the backyard. We had a little miscommunication in the very beginning, but they ended up doing exactly what we wanted, and they did a good job. They did HardiePlank on the entire exterior of our house, and then they did the cedar backboard on the back half of our house, which was more of a custom job. Their policy was that you don't pay until the end. We'd had some issues with other contractors, and that really scared us off of some people. In the end, we were happy with Home Exterior Systems. They earned an A.”

“I've used them twice, and I will go back for additional services. They're really confident and very good at what they do. They did siding, roof repair, and painting for me. I'd give them an A.”

“Home Exterior Systems' work was real good. It came out really great and all that stuff. They're a really good company.”

“They removed the siding that needed to be removed and put all new HardiePlank siding on. Then, they finished with two coats of paint, and all the trim looked good. Everything they did was good. They were very professional men who cleaned up after they were through—I had no problems with them at all. I'd give them an A+. They were excellent, and I'd recommend them.”

“Home Exterior Systems did an excellent job, and they were very communicative during the process. All the people involved were very helpful. I would rate them as an A+ company.”

“We were very happy with Home Exterior Systems' work, and the workers were very pleasant. They did some siding on the second story for us, and it was quality work. We chose them over the other person who gave us a quote because they were more professional. They were excellent.”

“Home Exterior Systems put HardiePlank on the back of my house, painted it, finished it out, and it looked really good. I narrowed it down to about four people and had them come out and give bids. Home Exterior Systems was the best bid of the lot, so that's who I went with. I would recommend them to other people. If anybody wants a testimonial from somebody, I'd be more than happy to answer questions. I'd give them an A+.”

“Their customer service was excellent. They started when they were supposed to and completed the work on time, kept everything nice and neat, and were very professional. They did siding work for me, and I had no issues with it. I would recommend them to a neighbor or a friend. I'd give them an A.”

“They installed gutters in my house, and they did a pretty good job. I was very pleased, and I plan on using them again. I would rate them an A.”

“Everything went well with Home Exterior Systems. They replaced our siding on the back of the house. The service was good. They were a referral by a neighbor. I would give them an A+.”

“I'm happy with the work. I had no problem. Home Exterior Systems did the siding and painting work. I dealt directly with the workers, and so far, so good. They cleaned up after themselves. I would say they're a grade-A company.”

“Home Exterior Systems put new James Hardie siding on the house. I would definitely recommend them to other people. They deserve an A.”

“Home Exterior Systems did a good job, and I'd recommend them. I heard about them through my neighbor. They put HardiePlank on my house. I would give them an A.”

“Home Exterior Systems put some HardiePlank on a garage for me and did some framing as well. I felt their customer service was very good. I chose them because I'd used them in the past. I would definitely recommend them, and I would grade them an A.”

“They were very professional, their employees were very polite, they worked neatly, and they didn't talk too much. They replaced our siding. I think we found them through Best Pick Reports. I'd rate them an A.”

“We used them for some HardiePlank on our house. I plan on using them again. I have another house I need them to do some work on, and I told them I'd use them. I'd most definitely give them an A.”

“They did exactly what they said they would do, when they said they would do it. I called them out, and they did siding for me. I would recommend them. The estimators came out, looked at the house, and basically appeared to be more positive than the other guys were. I would give them an A.”

“They did a decent job on the siding. I was satisfied with their work, for the most part. There were just a few minor things, but overall, it was a good job. I'd rate them A-.”

“I had a little patio added onto my existing house. It's not completely done yet because I had some other work done at the same time. I was waiting on everything else to be finished. I think an electrician is supposed to come, do some more wiring, and hang the fence. I would definitely recommend them to friends and neighbors. I'd give them an A.”

“We were very happy with them. They did some exterior painting for us. I'd give them an A. They did really good.”

“Home Exterior Systems was fantastic. They did siding work for me, and I think it looks great. They were very forthcoming about keeping me informed, and I had no issues with their work. They deserve ten stars. I can't brag about them enough. They're A+.”

“They were always here when they said they'd be here. All of the workers were extremely polite and very considerate, and they knew their tasks well. They're craftsmen, so they did a really good job. They replaced some wood siding with HardiePlank and did some window trim. I would give them a very high rating.”

“Home Exterior Systems did siding for me. I was a little hesitant going into a project that big, but I could not have asked for it to go any smoother. The crew was prompt, extremely polite, and professional right from the get-go. They did everything they said they were going to do. I would give them an A+.”

“Home Exterior Systems is one of the best contractors we've worked with. They replaced siding. Everything stood out from the service side of it. I liked the care in cleaning up and repairing the work site, the attention to detail, and the actual work they did. The work was done two months ago, and there really isn't anything I can point out that wasn't absolutely perfect. I would give them an A+. They were absolutely perfect.”

“They were extremely professional, and we were very pleased with their work. We liked the way the owner came to talk to us directly. He came with his son, so it's a family-run business. We like that very much as well. There were no problems at all. The day they said they were going to come, they came and did the work. The workers were very, very polite, too. We were very happy with the work. It was just the siding and some paint, and the house still looks great. None of the work has needed repair since then. It still looks pretty good. They deserve an A+.”

“They did a really good job. They replaced all my siding and put HardiePlank on. Then, they replaced some of the soffits and fascia, too. It was just old and needed to be redone. What I liked about it is that they kept me informed. When they were going to show up, they showed up. If it was raining or something and they weren't going to work that day, they called to let me know. I knew exactly when they were going to be there. They always were there. I really liked that. I would give them an A+.”

“They put up new siding and painted my house. The work was done a month and a half ago. They do a good job. They're very thorough, and I'd use them again. Home Exterior Systems is an A+.”

“They work very well. They replaced the siding of the house and painted it, and it took only one day. It looks good. Everything was OK, so I would give them an A+.”

“I thought Home Exterior Systems did a good job. The work was done almost a year ago. They did my HardiePlank siding, and it's holding up well today. I did have to call them back, but they responded very well. I would give the company an A.”

“They did home exterior siding, and they did a good job. They did the job on time, and they met the price they quoted. Any issues that I had during the job they were able to easily resolve, and I haven't had to call them back to repair anything. I'd give them an A.”

“They were amazing. The guys started working the minute they got there. They took very few breaks, and they were only gone maybe 20 or 30 minutes for lunch. It took them only three days to complete the job. They were redoing the same exact job we had already had done. The contractor that I used before them took a month, and the guys from Home Exterior Systems came and did it in three days—no joke. They were fabulous. The guy before was kind of lazy, but these guys were hard workers. They listened to me. Everything I said I wanted, they did exactly that. Jay Sanchez was amazing. He was the foreman. He was great—very nice and very respectful. I like them so much that they're coming back to do more. They had to demo and reinstall HardiePlank siding on the entire back of my house, and it's a big house. I would give them an A+.”

“I liked their quote process and their actual process at my house doing the work. They were organized, clean, and friendly. Every day, they cleaned up after themselves. They did exactly what they said they were going to do—no less. They were just completely professional. We got new siding and windows, and the siding looks beautiful today. I don't think there's anything they could have done differently or improved on. They were absolutely fantastic. I would give Home Exterior Systems an A+.”

“I believe they did roofing, flashing replacement, installation of gutters, and then some indoor repairs. I think they had to replace a whole frame above our bathtub on the wall where there was a leak. It was a lot of work, but they do a great job. Everybody was very nice and professional. They were very aware and considerate of the surrounding furniture, carpet, and everything else. They really covered up their work to make sure that they didn't make a mess anywhere, and they cleaned up after themselves very well. We pretty much didn't have to do anything after they left. I think we actually used them for siding work a while back, too. I'd give them an A+.”

“They've done a lot for me, and they've come through every time. My relationship with the company goes back about four or five years. The workers always have a good attitude and are very respectful. I would absolutely recommend them to someone else. There is no way that they could improve, and it's very seldom that I say that about a contractor. They are really, really good. I would give them an A+.”

“Home Exterior Systems did a lot of siding and trim work. They were on time and cleaned up their work area daily, which was very important. We liked the quality of the work. I'd give them an A+. They were very responsive.”

“Everything Home Exterior Systems did was good. They installed siding for me. They were very friendly when they came out and did the quote, and they followed up. They were A+—no issues.”

“My experience was wonderful. The siding is absolutely beautiful, and all my neighbors love it. Home Exterior did everything I asked them to do and more. They went above and beyond. My house is two-and-a-half stories, and they put in all James Hardie ColorPlus siding. It’s absolutely beautiful. They did a wonderful job. All my neighbors want to get Home Exterior Systems in their houses too. I’ll give them an A++.”

“I had a really positive experience. Home Exterior Systems put new siding on my house, and they put insulation behind it. They did a spectacular job. I’m going to use them again. My house is almost 100 years old, so I knew it wasn’t anywhere near code, and they brought it up to code for me. The craftsmanship was really great. They said it’d take two weeks, and they finished exactly on time. I was really happy—A+.”

“They replaced the siding on our house with HardiePlank, and we had a positive experience. Pat was very professional and helpful, and he was always available. There were probably about four or five workers that came out, and he tried to stay on top of his crew. They came back to help us on an issue we had after we closed. It took about three to five days. I'd give them an A.”

“This was my first experience with Home Exterior Systems, and it went really well. I replaced the original siding on the house with HardiePlank. I'm very pleased with the work and the installation, and I would definitely use them again. I bid the work to three different companies, and I chose them because they gave me the most professional bid response and outlined exactly what the work was going to be and what the cost was. They set the costs and did the work as they stated. I had no issues with the quality of work—everything was done really well. I was very pleased. They deserve an A+.”

“They did an excellent job. We had siding replaced on a two-story house. They replaced all the fascia, installed new gutters, and replaced a standard garage door. I had a very positive experience with them. They were very professional about the way they went about performing the work. They showed up on time and worked all day, and they cleaned up every day before they left. The work lasted for about two weeks. From sales through the foremen that were here supervising the work and the workers doing the work, they all did an excellent job. I would give them an A+.”

“They were an A+. They did a professional job on my siding. I felt comfortable with the quote that I got and that they were going to do the work they said they were going to do. It took them a few days to put the siding up for me.”

“Home Exterior Systems did a great job on our siding. I'd give them an A+.”

“My experience was positive. They replaced the siding and painted my house. They got it done really quick—about two days—and it looks really good. They did a good job, and they cleaned up after themselves at the end of each day. I'd give them an A+.”

“They did a good job, and I'd recommend them. They removed siding and reinstalled siding. It was a pretty big job. I think two or three or four workers came out, and it took them about a week to do that for me. A+.”

“I had a positive experience with Home Exterior Systems because they did a good job on my exterior siding and handled the job well. I would give them an A because I just don't give anything higher than that.”

“I'd definitely give them an A. It was back in October when I had them do the work. I had them install gutters, replace most of our siding, and paint the entirety of the house. I think it was like two or three days of work. The siding is fine—no problems there. The painting and the gutters are fine too. I might actually be calling them back out to add some more gutters for our garage because we had them replace what was already there. For the garage, we had one side that already had gutters, and we needed to have those three sides done. I had some changes that I needed them to do for one of the gutters because they didn't do it the way I expected them to. It wasn't a problem at all. They came the next day, and they just did that really quickly. They waited until everything was completely done, until I said I was satisfied, and there wasn't anything else that needed to be done. They came the next day or later that night to pick up a check. It's not like they were finished and immediately said, 'OK, we're done, we want a check.' They waited, which I liked. They were easy to work with. They came out and took care of my problems.”

“The quality of their work stood out. They did a fantastic job.”

“Home Exterior Systems installed siding for me in the past. The quality of the work was superb. I was very, very pleased with it. I would absolutely recommend them based on my experience.”

“Home Exterior Systems was excellent. They installed HardiPlank siding on my home. They were all wonderful. They were very efficient. They told us when they were coming, showed up, and cleaned up their mess afterward. Everything was great.”

“They were just great. Our house was built in 1972, and it had the original siding on it. Changing it after all these years was just wonderful. I was very happy with them. They were very professional. Doing business with them was great.”

“I loved them—they did an outstanding job. There weren’t any surprises. Everything was explained up front, and they were knowledgeable and quick. They kept the site clean and didn’t damage the yard at all. I was very pleased with the work they did. They took all the old siding off, put some insulation board up, and then finished it out with the HardiePlank and painted it.”

“They were excellent. They did the work, it was fast, it was efficient, and it looks good. Every time I drive up, I am thrilled that I got it done.”

“I think they’re fabulous—very professional. I had the siding replaced on my house. Their precision really stood out. They marked everything. They were very meticulous. Nice, neat, orderly, organized. The only way that can happen is if they know what they’re doing.”

“They replaced the siding on two sides of my home and the front porch area, and they finished off what I had started in the back. All I needed was for them to trim it out, and they completed it very quickly. There were two gentlemen there doing the work. They did a very good job. I was very pleased.”

“Home Exterior Systems had installed siding on my home. They were very good. They did an excellent job. I like what they did. The personnel were pretty good. They knew what they were doing. They were a very good contractor.”

“They did siding for me. The product is fantastic. I'm not doing siding, so I did HardiePlank. You can't compare that with regular siding. I'm very pleased with everything that they did. They did the job in a couple of days, very quick, and they did a fine job on the finishing and everything. So, it was a good company.”

“They had very good personnel. I didn't have any issues. They were all very nice; very professional. They also built a screened-in porch for me. It looks really awesome.”

“They installed siding for me in the past year or two. I thought the whole thing went very well. The salesperson I dealt with was very professional. I'd highly recommend them to anybody else.”

“Home Exterior Systems came in and did exactly what I needed to have done, and they did a very good job of it. They did everything in one day. After they put the siding up, they painted it, and it's been holding up pretty good. I feel comfortable recommending them. ”

“Home Exterior Systems did some windows and some siding for me. I was well pleased with the material and the work. They just were good people. I was comfortable with them working on my house.”

“Home Exterior Systems did some work for me in Galveston. They did a great job and they were quick. They were on budget, they cleaned up, there were no messes, and they did a really good job. I'm a designer and I was doing a job for my client in Houston, so it was really good that they did the job right.”

“They did an excellent job; I have no problem with what they did. They did a complete set of windows and a complete HardiPlank installation. I would just recommend them highly.”

“They did windows and siding on my home. They were real good to work with. The crews were professional, clean-cut, courteous, and they did a nice job. All the workmanship was good. If I had any issues with anything they remedied it right away. So, it was a very good experience. They did siding, windows, some gutter repairs and some interior painting. The owner of the company was real good to deal with. His foremen were real good to deal with. It was a good experience all the way through.”

“They put siding on my home. I thought they did a pretty good job. Overall, they were probably about a nine and a half out of ten. They were in pretty good shape. They would tell you when they got there, they would tell you when they left, they cleaned up their mess at the end of the day, and they didn't leave any trash whatsoever other than what they needed to for the next day, but it was always piled in a particular spot. So, it was all good.”

“Home Exterior Systems did siding for us in the past. I thought they did a great job. So far, it's holding up, but it hasn't been that long. They said it's supposed to hold up for 30 years. We haven't had to call them back though.”

“They installed siding for me. It was great. They did an excellent job. They were timely. They were just in and out and they got it taken care of. I thought they all did a good job. The gentleman that came to visit explained everything clearly and I was happy with his explanation.”

“Home Exterior Systems repaired something—they didn't do my siding. They did a wonderful job. The wind knocked down a piece of my siding. They were very nice, very hardworking, and very thorough. I was pleased with them.”

“They did some siding on my home. They did an excellent job. 100 percent. In fact, they went out of their way for me.”

“They were great. We had great workers. Each crew, they replaced a deck for us, and then they installed HardiePlank siding on the house and painted it. So we had no complaints at all; they were really good. They had great crews, and they did a great job. I had no problems communicating with them, and they cleaned up behind themselves really well every day. We were very pleased with it, and it looks great. No complaints at all.”

“They did a great job. They did the work that they said they'd do and did a thorough, good job. They put up HardiePlank siding.”

“Home Exterior did siding work. They did good. Everything was good. No complaints. They did the siding and some windows. They did an excellent job.”

“The work was good. It was done in a timely manner, and I was pleased with them. They did out back siding, built a pergola over my deck, painted, replaced the damaged support to the boards and so forth. This was all one big job. I saw them doing some work several blocks from my house, so I stopped and got a card for the guy. I called them and had them come out, and they gave me a bid and did it for what they said they would.”

“I thought they did a great job. They did what I asked, and they did a great job. The work they did was that we had HardiePlank put on our entire house, and they painted it. They were just very nice, polite, and they cleaned up after themselves. I don't have any complaints. When we found little things, they came out and fixed it.”

“Home Exterior Systems did siding for me. I think the quality of the work was excellent. The work was done in a timely manner. I can't complain about it. I would certainly refer them to other people. They're a good little group of folks. It was the only thing they did for me. My wife knew someone that had used, and I just called them and got an estimate from them and decided to use them. I have a single story house, but it's brick with detached garage, so they did all the wood on the house and the garage. It was quite a bit of work, but it was just siding and trim work. Like I said, I would refer them to someone.”

“It was about a year ago. They did a great job. I was very pleased. They basically were hired to paint the house, but they had to take all of the guttering off and re-installed the guttering. They were prompt; the crew was very neat and clean, and they picked up their stuff every afternoon. They did a good job caulking, so I was very happy with them. I can't think of why I selected them. I thought they had excellent customer service. They were very prompt in returning phone calls, and the owner or manager or whatever he is—the person who came out—I was impressed with him. I liked the brochure that they gave you. They gave me facts about the company, so they were very professional.”

“They did a great job, and I thought they were friendly. I was able to communicate with the owner of the company whenever we had any questions, so we were pleased. They replaced some of the siding and then painted. It was all positive, nothing bad to say about them.”

“It was about three or five months ago. They did great work, and I was pleased with everything they did. They painted HardiePlank and my windows. It was one big job. I picked Home Exterior because I needed some work done, and they were doing some work in the neighborhood—they dropped a card, a flyer or something, on my door. I happened to drive by and see them doing some work down the street from me. And then I called and he was just a nice guy. It was just a great experience for a contractor job. I was very satisfied. I'd recommend them to anybody.”

“The work is beautiful. I would highly recommend them. Exterior did one job, but it was huge. They did HardiePlank on our whole house, and our house is probably 90 percent old wood cedar, which the woodpeckers loved and we hated. So, they ripped it all off and then replaced it with HardiePlank, painted, and then they took out a door, three bay windows, and finally they enclosed some windows in our den. We didn't have a solid wall in our den, so they took out two floor-to-ceiling windows and just sheetrocked the inside. They did great on the inside, too. It was a lot of work. They were here for almost three weeks, and every single day they swept and picked up every nail and took their garbage away. We bought this house and put almost $100,000 in repairs and stuff, and we've just never had contractors that conscientious about clean up. That meant so much to us, because we're outside a lot with five kids running around, and I don't want anyone stepping on nail. I felt really good about that.”

“Home Exterior did an excellent job. I'd recommend them to anybody. They did the whole 6,500-square foot house and two building and all the siding, trim, and all that. That was the only time they did work for me. They were recommended by a friend who had only good things to say. They were professional and did everything they said they were going to do. They cleaned up and did a great job.”
