RE: 26 New Vinyl Replacement Windows

From the start of the project to the end Creative Exterior Concepts was wonderful to work with. Robert was very prompt with providing quotes and answering any questions that we had prior to the project starting. Creative Exterior Concepts was also very thorough with explaining the window installation process and what adjustments would be made to the home. The team completing the work was also fabulous. We are very pleased with the completed project. Thank you Creative Exterior Concepts!

RE: Vinyl Siding, Aluminum Soffit & Fascia

From the initial quote to the final day of the project, everyone was very professional. Our project started early and was completed in just 3 days. The total cost of the entire job was told up front and was as expected with no hidden charges. They went above and beyond to take our worn out house to make it a thing of beauty. Thank you Creative Ext. Concepts for making this experience awesome

RE: Vinyl Siding, Aluminum Fascia, Gutters & Downspouts

Robert and his team did an amazing job replacing the siding and gutters on our home! After the first contractor was unable to do the work, CEC stepped in to the complete the job better than we could have anticipated. It looks like a brand new home. The work was done with high attention to detail and craftsmanship. Everyday the work site was cleaned up for safety. Robert has excellent communication skills and kept us informed of progress and provided all the necessary paperwork to keep track of the budget. The team was polite, focused and professional. I will highly recommend Creative Exterior Concepts to my friends and family.

RE: 6 Ft. Sliding Vinyl Patio Door

I had contacted Robert to get an estimate to replace our sliding patio door. Robert came out and surveyed the door to be replaced and explained in detail my options and pricing. The pricing and timeline to install were very acceptable and fair. Once the door was delivered to CEC, Robert called to set an install date and installers arrived promptly at the scheduled time. During the installation Robert had come to the house twice to check on the progress and ensure was done properly. We are very please with the great experience CEC provided us. We have recommended CEC to several friends and will recommend to anyone looking for a very professional and customer focused company.

RE: Vinyl Siding, Aluminum Soffit & Fascia

I am building a rear entryway for my house. I needed siding installed, so, CEC came out to my house, gave me a reasonable estimate and time frame to complete the job. They were originally scheduled to come out on a Tuesday, but Robert called me the day before and asked if they could start earlier. We are extremely happy with the way the siding, soffit & fascia look. I would definitely recommend CEC to my friends & neighbors if they need anything done.

RE: Aluminum Soffit & Fascia

These guys are fantastic. We had to have a soffit repaired after a storm and an improper install by another company. Robert came out, did a quick estimate and the work was completed shortly thereafter. I'd give more than five stars if I could. Strong recommendation from me and my family. We will be doing a window project in the near future and Creative Exterior is who we are calling.

RE: New Vinyl Windows

We’ve replaced all our windows with Robert and his crew over several years, and the experience has always been perfect. We highly recommend these folks.

RE: New Vinyl Windows and Entry Door

The owner came out to our house to give us an estimate to replace two windows and a service door in our garage. We got the free estimate, then agreed on materials price and timing The crew came arrived on time and dived right into the work. They finished sooner than I had figured and it looked great. We were extremely happy with the entire process from start to finish. The next time we need exterior work done, we will contact CRC to do the job

RE: Vinyl Siding, Aluminum Soffit & Fascia, Window Capping, Gutters & Downspouts

How nice it is to find a company that you can recommend in such high regard. We had hail damage and was interviewing several companies to replace our siding. Robert showed up and met with our insurance adjuster. After a walk thru, Robert challenged the adjuster on several things that we would have not thought of. His years of experience and expertise was most impressive! He has a team that is very thoughtful. respectful and thorough in the completion of the job. Robert would check in with us and his team on the progress of the job to our satisfaction. Thank you Robert!

RE: Siding, Windows, Gutters, Doors, Drywall

We would like to thank you for your wisdom, guidance and professionalism in the replacement of the items mentioned above. This was a big project for us, not only because of the amount of work, but because we had previously had a really bad experience with a contractor. You took that information in stride and allowed us to “believe again” in the basic goodness of people.

Knowing that you had either physical or phone presence daily was reassuring. There were no surprises. We could almost set our clock by the daily 4:30pm phone call to us to check if we had any concerns. We were very fortunate with the weather, in that only two days were lost to rain.

Alfred, your foreman, and his crew were tireless in their workmanship. Every time we looked outside, at least one of the men had a ruler out checking and double checking all measurements before he would either cut or attach a piece to the house. The finished work is truly custom quality. They cleaned up the yards daily. No one would even know that any type of work was ongoing at the end of the day.

Neighbors have already commented about the work that was done on our home. Everyone likes the chosen color of the siding and trim. The common observation is: “Your house looks like new!” We have already given your company name to several friends and acquaintances.

A letter of appreciation:

Just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with the major renovation project you and your team did on my house. Roof, siding, windows and gutters. I've received many compliments from neighbors both for how nice the house looks and also for the professional way your team performed the work. Every project is unique and has its own set of issues to contend with but you were here everyday to check up on things and made sure the project was going along smoothly and without problems. Every detail was planned out and taken care of from the permit to the dumpsters to the delivery of materials. I knew exactly when each item would arrive. I appreciated that.

Now as we're getting into the fall/winter season I can already tell that the new siding and windows are making the house warmer and quieter. I was so glad to see that 60 year old cedar siding removed and carted away although the squirrels might not be so happy (they chewed through that old siding a few times in the past years).

I also wanted to say a word about Alfred your supervisor on the job and the workers. I was amazed at the long hours they put in with only a break for lunch and Alfred was always there to answer questions and deal with my concerns. The job site was always cleaned up at the end of each work day. The guys actually spent a good hour at the end of each day to make sure that the front and back yards were cleaned up and safe so the dog wouldn't get hold of something bad to chew on.

I really believe that the value of my house increased more than the cost of the project. It looks like 50 years were taken off the age of the house. The last thing I wanted to say is thanks to you and your team for a great job well done. I highly recommend Creative Exterior Concepts.

Rich G. - Arlington Heights, IL

I would like to let you know how extremely pleased we are with Creative Exterior Concepts. In early January, we had 13 Alside windows, one sliding door, DuPont Tyvek and siding installed by your crew. The product and service from your company was amazing.

From the very beginning of the project with the measurement of our windows and the siding selection to the final installation, everything was flawless. Your crew arrived promptly every morning, was courteous and kept the worksite neat and clean. Your foreman, Alfred, was very helpful and explained how the installation would happen and what to expect. Over the course of a few days, weather permitting, we had new windows and sliding glass door, Tyvek and new siding installed. The end result was absolute perfection.

I want to thank you and your crew for a wonderful experience and I look forward to having your company return to perform additional work on my home. Please feel free to use this letter as a reference and we will be more than happy to serve as a phone reference as well!

Michele S. – Lake Villa, IL

Thank you for the wonderful job Creative Exteriors Concepts completed on our house! We are very pleased with the full window replacement and insulated-vinyl siding over the existing siding. The makeover is remarkable and far exceeded our expectations.

Communication was excellent. Not only did you let us know the status of the materials, the start date, and the estimated time remaining, but you came by regularly to check on the work and make sure we were happy. At the end, you personally walked us through to be certain all the work was completed.

Your crew was the best! I couldn't have asked for a better, more considerate, efficient, and talented group of men. They were on time and put in long hours. The work site was clean and stored at the end of every day. Alfred, John, Sigmund and Walter, thank you, thank you, thank you.

Know you can use us as a reference. We are looking forward to winter wrapped tightly in our "new" home.
