I am absolutely delighted that I "found" Acme Home Exteriors and contracted with them for my exterior home improvement needs! I met with Dan Smeak last fall to discuss my needs and found him to exemplify everything one could wish for when choosing a company to complete needed projects such as a complete tear-off / installation of a new roof, replacing the wonderful but red-squirrel vulnerable cedar wood siding and installing new gutters. Dan was (and continues to be) patient with my never-ending questions, forthright in his recommendations, mindful of my budget and honest about potential additional costs once the roof decking was exposed (as my roof had leaked for a couple of years). He took the time to give me a warm hand-off to a painter he recommended (for work related to the upcoming siding part of the contract) and to Paul Davis, the Project Manager for the roofing portion of the contract.
Both Dan and Paul were diligent to assure the special requirements of my driveway were observed, although it meant the roofing materials could not be off-loaded directly onto the roof , thereby necessitating addition work by the roofing crew. The roof was torn-off and replaced last week, and I am extremely happy with the work done by the roofing crew under the leadership of Dakota and Kyle as Team Leaders. They, and Shaun and Booker, did a terrific job completing the work in less than 3 days, including clean-up that left nary a nail in my driveway or garden beds! As Project Manager, Paul Davis was on site at some point each day; he provided me with updates at the end of each day and patiently put up with my questions - often sent by text after Paul's regular work hours. In my wildest dream, I cannot imagine a better experience and outcome - thanks to this team of Paul, Dakota, Kyle, Shaun and Booker.
The next phase of this work - siding, gutters, gutter covers and painting - will begin sometime in May. I am confident I will be as happy with that phase of this contract as I am with my new roof. If you are interested in working with a terrific company with great leadership, supported by a knowledgeable and skilled team of tradesmen, give Dan Smeak a call.
