Having recently completed a couple of expensive remodeling projects, we were hoping to make our aging vinyl siding last a bit longer. When a large piece of siding broke off in a high wind, though, we saw how flimsy and brittle it was and realized we couldn't delay. I did a lot of research and got estimates from three reputable contractors. I chose Marshall Roofing because (a) their reputation was good, (b) their price was the most competitive, (c) they offered a 5-year workmanship warranty, and (d) our sales consultant/estimator, Doug McCleaf, was very knowledgeable and spent a lot of time answering my questions. That was probably the most important factor. I initially requested an estimate for siding only, but when the proposal came in at a more affordable price than we expected, I asked Doug for additional estimates for trim and gutters. We accepted all three proposals, for a total of $21,653.00. Doug told me to expect a 3-week lead time, but because the siding we selected, Cedarmill Sandstone Beige, turned out to be available in the local warehouse, they were able to start the very next day. I was skeptical when Doug told me the job should take only 3 days, but except for a downspout part that had to be special-ordered for our rain barrel, everything was indeed done in 3 days. The siding/trim crew was large, and they worked very hard, from dawn to dusk. The job was not all smooth sailing. When the siding started to go up on day 1, I was horrified to see it was not what I expected. The color was right, but the texture was wrong--flat, instead of the faux wood grain finish I had selected. I made panicked phone calls to Doug and Cindy, the on-site project manager, and the correct siding was delivered and work resumed within a couple of hours. It turned out that the pallet had been incorrectly labeled by the supplier. Too bad Cindy was not on site when the first few planks of siding went up, but she was there much of the time, making sure everything was being done correctly and consulting with me whenever anything unexpected came up. She had a great eye for detail, calling my attention to things I probably never would have noticed. She even spray-painted my old porch security light before it was reinstalled so it wouldn't look bad against the beautiful new trim. Everyone on the Marshall crew was courteous and professional, and they cleaned up every piece of debris. The gutters were installed by a separate crew (actually, I think it was just one person) after the siding crew had left. Marshall did not ask for any payment until all the work had been completed, which is quite unusual. A couple of days after I had paid the bill, I noticed that a cable running down the side of the house had not been secured. I got in touch with Doug, and it was fixed the very next morning. I couldn't be happier with the work. Our house has regained its curb appeal, and my husband and I have both noticed it feels warmer. I will definitely use Marshall when it's time to replace our roof--not for a few more years, I hope. .
