Recent Review: Let me start out with my overall impression ? extremely positive, a great company to deal with, outstanding quality of work, and yes, I would DEFINITELY recommend them and would definitely use them again. They went out of their way to deal with previous water damage to the house and to minimize the potential for any future damage. They know their business and do it well. They get a vote of outstanding from us. In terms of cost, they were not the cheapest, and were not the most expensive. I think that their windows were slightly higher than a number of the other bidders for similar (but not necessarily identical) windows, their Hardie siding work was slightly lower, and overall they were near the middle. Further, while it was well within the contract for them to charge us addition for the repairs they made to the plywood and framing the replaced at the back of the house, they did not charge us. Overall, they were well worth the cost we paid for the work! For that reason I gave them an A for cost even though they were not the cheapest bidder. Will I say everything was perfect? Nothing ever is, and there were some minor (I stress MINOR) hic-ups which we had to work through, but one of Unicorp?s strengths is working through any such situation. One area was a Hardie trim board which was installed on the edge of the garage door and extended all the way to touching the driveway, in an area which floods. This was a situation which I caught and brought to their attention, as Hardie touching the ground is not supposed to happen. They had already finished this area, so fixing it took some ingenuity, but they did so in a way which looked good and protected the board from water the driveway. Their on-site crew chief found a way to do this with minimal impact while retaining the most aesthetic appearance. Also, while they were given our new outside lights in advance, they didn?t seem to check them all out and installed one mounting block of the wrong size. We caught that before they tried to put up the light, and they found a way to install a larger mounting block. Overall, I was extremely impressed with the on-site crew chief?s experience, skill, and knowledge in working projects such as this and his knowledge working with Hardie in particular. One comment I would make is that a few times there seemed to be minor disconnects between information I passed to my contact, the field supervisor, and the on-site crew chief. We worked with the field supervisor to pass information or get final decisions, but a few times these didn?t seem to get to the on-site crew chief right away. In hindsight, our discussions probably should have taken place with both the field supervisor and the on-site crew chief present to ensure everyone had all the info. Again, however, the most important thing here is that the few times there were minor disconnects, they made them right. One area I had some concerns is the narrow distance (about ½ inch) between the vertical Hardie trim boards (inside and outside corner boards) and our existing deck. This closeness is due to the fact that the deck was installed improperly (too high ? too close to the siding) by a different contractor a number of years ago and cannot be changed. Unicorp went out of their way not only to repair damage which this caused to the house (plywood siding and framing) but also to do a great deal of flashing to reduce the potential for future water damage. They also put a single row of non-Hardie (e.g., Azek) at the bottom of the siding, along the top of the deck, to keep the Hardie lap boards well above the deck. However, the corner siding trim boards still come down to about ½ inch above the deck, with flashing between the bottom of the trim boards and the deck. This looks best (consistent with how the corner boards normally extent) but puts the Hardie trim boards very close to the potential for future water damage, in an area which has already proven to be a source of water issues. I was assured by the Unicorp field supervisor that this is the way they have been installing for years, that it has passed Hardie inspections with no problems, that the trim boards are not as much of a water concern as are the lap boards, and that if there is a resultant problem in the future that they would cover it (material and labor) under their workmanship warranty. They understood my concerns with this area, and as a result they included a specific clause in their workmanship warranty indicating that they will cover both material and labor for these trim boards for a period of 20 years. I feel this is an excellent solution, especially considering the longevity of Unicorp which I expect to stay around for many more years. I?ve probably seemed to write a lot about several minor issues, but that should NOT be the main thing you take away from reading this review. Look at my ratings (very high) and don?t let any concerns raised cloud the overall intent of this review, which is to very highly recommend Unicorp. What they are doing is not cookie cutter work ? it is a combination of technical and craftsman work, and there are many decisions to be made in the process. The fact that I had some minor issues is not the main point. The reality is that with a complex job no one will ever be perfect all the time, and I believe Unicorp came as close as can be expected. The fact that we worked through these issues is the main point, and the resultant work looks beautiful and I expect it to last for many years. Unicorp does very professional work, of the highest quality, they know the materials (e.g., Hardie), they are good to work with, and deserve strong consideration for performing your window replacement and siding replacement. If you are considering Hardie, you especially need someone with their level of knowledge and experience with Hardie. I know that if I have other work done in the future which is in their areas of work, I will definitely include them on my very short list of people to work with and without hesitation I would recommend them to friends, family, and Angie?s List members!
