I was all set to sign a contract and then wanted a change to not replace the end boards which was not really necessary. When I asked to have the contract changed I never heard from them again, even after a number of emails to inquire about the issue. The change would have saved me about $3000.00, perhaps that is why I never got a response?

We received ONE email on July 7th from this potential customer and not one single phone call so their statement is inaccurate. If we get busy then sometimes we may miss one email which is as said above all we received because we respond to all calls and emails.

I've had a lot of luck finding installers that are recommended by the manufacturers of the products to be installed. I determined that CertainTeed was the brand that I wanted to go with. I checked their site and got estimates from three siding installers in my area. All estimates were in the same ballpark but I went with EM Snow for a number of reasons; the other companies gave me estimates from p...

E.M. Snow was fantastic to work with. We received 3 quotes from top-rated roofers on Angie's List. E.M. Snow gave the best price and told me which aspects of the other quotes we didn't actually need and why. The office was well-organized and provided excellent communications. They did the roof work while we were out of town. They cleaned up so well I wouldn't have known they were there if the colo...

We had a contract to install new windows in our new home. The job was started on Friday. I left work early and made it home around 3pm, and the workers were gone for the day, as their business day ends at 4pm. The window installation in the living room was half done. There was a draft coming in and a storm the following day. There was another storm on Monday, causing the job to finish on Tuesday. ...

Mr. Ricupero, the homeowner that we dealt with, understood the job and what we did and paid for the job in full because he was the person that we dealt with for the entire course of the job and understood that we completed the job as promised. Unfortunately we never met Ms. [Member Name Removed] nor spoke with her and the only reason we know who she is was because her fiance wrote her name on the ...

It went well. We needed our roof done ASAP because we were hitting a deadline to have solar panels installed. EM Snow gave the most reasonable quote by far and were able to complete the work within our tight timeline. We had a unique situation where many of the boards underneath our roof were in bad shape. I had to ask for this and stay on top of the crew, but they did eventually replace everythin...

They put in Western style storm (Harvey) windows. They should have had Eastern style windows made and installed. Because the Western style storms did not leave enough room for the window to be opened and closed. They had to come back and put in a additional piece of wood on each side , so the windows could open and close correctly. The French door storms were not fitted correctly. There is space b...
