We hired Preferred Exteriors (Duane Poole) to construct an addition on our house. The addition was 24x14, 2 stories with a basement extension of the same size. The job was for the framing, exterior and interior construction including hanging the drywall. We completed the interior finishing (sheetrock finishing, painting, flooring, and trim) as a way to save money and we also wanted to match the existing trim and finish of the main dwelling. A lot of the trim work involved custom moldings of which we hand made. After interviewing numerous contractors and obtaining quotes from all we decided to hire Duane and his crew. Duane was very responsive with the quote and spent a great deal of time working with us to meet our very limited budget. While he was not able to get to our exact budget he was within a couple of thousand dollars of where we needed to be. Given the scope of our project his quote was exceptional. We started construction in December of 2014 and completed construction in May of 2015. Duane subcontracted the excavation, basement foundation, and electrical work. All were excellently done and we have not had any issues to date. We hired a plumber based on Duane'e recommendation and he did the rough-in for two bathrooms. Again an excellent job was performed and we have no issues. We have since used both the plumber and electrician for additional work because of their outstanding performance. The majority of the work was performed by Sean Mulligan who is part of Duane's crew. Sean did an outstanding job which actually made the finish work much easier that I had anticipated. The overall framing was within 1/8" over the total 24' span. This made laying the hardwood floors very easy as there was no messing around trying to deal with out of square floors or walls. In addition to the framing, Sean also did the insulation, windows, doors, and a lot of the sheetrock. Sean was also very easy to work with. He kept us apprised of any situations he encountered and freely discussed with us any issues that we felt needed to be addressed. All of this was performed during one of the worst winters in CNY in decades. Sean is a real asset to Duane's team and I cannot speak highly enough of him. The only slight criticism we had was that there was one occasion where communications between Duane and his siding crew was a little lacking regarding out of scope work that lead to some confusion. We had anticipated this situation when we started and discussed it with Duane but he did not tell this crew. This one situation required me to call Duane so he could remedy this of which he did immediately. So not a big issue. Overall we are extremely happy with the work that they performed given the terrible weather they performed it in. They were prompt, worked hard, did outstanding work, (Thanks Sean!!) and showed genuine concern that we were happy with the outcome. I highly recommend them for a project of this scope.

Category gutter cleaning,gutter repair,roofing,siding



It all started with a terrible water leak from the roof and it was noticed by a portion of the ceiling caving into the family room. I stayed home from work to get this resolved and called over 10 roofers and most didn't call me back. So i located Preferred Exteriors and Renovations, Duane and Bob. Great guys. Bob came out a couple of hours later, mind you they are located at least 45 min. from Rochester. They didn't charge me extra for milage. Bob came out shovled off the roof told me about the problem and gave me a break down and pictures. I failed to mention that I had a complete tear off of my roof 3 years ago. The prior roofer left off shingles and flashing causing the extensive damage to my roof and interior of my home. Not only when Preferred Exteriors and Renovations fixed the roof they did it quickly and cleanly! I was exetremly pleased with the results. They kept in touch with me the through the whole process. Their prices were very reasonable as I had two other quotes for the same job. I would definitely use them again! Actually I will use them again this coming summer for my gutters.

We have no record of this member reaching us. We noticed he has a South Carolina address. He may have us confused with another company. EDIT: It appears the memebr tried to reach us via message on Angies list. He left a message with an out of area phone number and an address with no town or state just a road name. Many of our Angies lists updates go to our spam box . We check every few days but this is one we may have missed. We strongly encourage contacting us via phone call or email us directly in addition to contact through Angies list.

Wonderful!. The house was built in 1853 and it took a special type of roofer to deal with the problems of aging rotting wood- slanted house. Duame Poole and his men showed up on time with a large crew, trucks, semi tractor and got right to work. We are so impressed with the job. Just the roof over the porch had 5 layers of asphalt shingles- 1 layer of wood shingles from the 1800's and rotted crossbeams. They set in new crossbeams and did a great job. They even put air vents on the roof which were never there. The entire crew were very cautious in every aspect of the job. The men were very polite and very clean- cleaning up the work area spotless.. Poole Construction does everything! We are having them back to drywall the one room and back limestone mud room.. The original plaster in the bedroom has cracked . crumbling to the floor.. We only wish we knew about them earlier. Would have saved a lot of heartaches from bad contractors. Duane Poole is a very humble- down to earth man along with the rest of his crew. Not fast talking like some city slickers that came to the house. We had several come over and Duane was the less expensive yet his operation looks like we paid 16,000- which was close to the price one contractor gave us. Honorable. A person with integrity. Highly recommend! We will hire him for any job around the house. Large or small This company is insured and bonded.

Very professional and did quality work. Communication was great throughout the job. Workers were highly experienced and went above and beyond to meet our expectations. I interviewed several contractors prior to hiring Duane. He is knowledgable, experienced and honest. Thank you Duane, we love our "new house"!
