Fiber Cement

They're doing work on our house. Reliable, professional, knowledgeable and courteous.
I tapped Choice Home Remodeling for a project involving exterior doors. I spoke to the service manager, Lonnie, who was very helpful and accommodating in scheduling the work. Lonnie called me a few days later to inform me he could have the techs out two weeks earlier, which was greatly appreciated.Tim, the installer manager, and Brian arrived for the service call. From the beginning, they were very polite and professional, and upon speaking to them, I knew they were very knowledgeable and competent. Their work was performed with great precision in a timely manner. I wholeheartedly recommend Choice for any of the numerous services they provide.
Don our salesman was great. Prices are competitive. Got windows and spouting done. Great installation.
Needed help gathering info for a job done 19 years ago on a home we sold. Tax purposes. They could not have been more pleasant and helpful. Told me right away. We may need them in the future and will only go here.
