This is an updated review for Exterior Building Solutions. I made an appointment for a Roof Inspection on 12/10. Unfortunately there was bad weather and I contacted them to see if they wanted to reschedule. The person who was to perform the inspection agreed and we made another appointment for 12/13. Again, we faced bad weather on 12/13. I did not call to reschedule the appointment and was waiting at my home for the person to arrive. When the person did not call or arrive at my home, I called and left a message. He immediately called me back and said that he would not be able to make it. I was not happy with this communication initiated by me (again) after the scheduled appointment and I left a very harsh review here on Angie's List. Over the weekend I pondered this review and had decided that it was overly harsh and that I was going to submit some changes. After all - the weather was terrible. My complaint was not that he couldn't perform the inspection; it was that he did not show up or initiate any contact. In any case, the job was not going to get done that day whether he called or not. For this reason, I felt that I left an unfair review. Before I could come to Angie's List and submit these changes, I received a call from Exterior Building Solutions with a sincere apology for the situation. That means a lot to me and I absolutely appreciate the gesture. While I have contacted a building inspector to perform the inspection on the roof, I will definitely consider Exterior Building Solutions to perform any recommended work.

They replaced two small roofs and gutters. The workman performed the work well and cleaned up after themselves. I am happy with the work.

I contacted Exterior Building Solutions to get a bid for a roof replacement on my home in Wildwood. I'm always skeptical about contractors so I tried to search for the ones with the best reviews on Angie's list. I contacted the top 3 companies based on reviews and received bids. EBS's bid was competitive, and our sales rep, Mike G. was very knowledgeable and courteous. The job was done quickly and on schedule, and so far I have been very happy with the work they did. The roofing crews were clean cut and made sure they didn't leave nails or other debris in the yard for my son to get hurt on. I would definitely use them again.

Our contact was Leo. The work were fine. We had leaks on the old roof and needed it replaced. They came out really quickly to give us the estimate. From then, it took them about 3-4 weeks to come and do the work, which they let is know during the estimate. The job only took two days. The crew was great. I had no complaints and did a nice job with clean up once the work was completed.

From estimate, explanation of service and installation, the process was painless. They even came out 3 more times to fix a trouble spot that didn't quite "take" from the initial roofing job. I would highly recommend Exterior Building Solutions.

Had them come out and inspect our roof and a bad gasket around one of the vents. The Exterior Building Solutions' employee gave us some good advice in repairs and came in well below other estimates. Will definitely be using them again.

I originally contacted EBS about a small roof leak. While Mike Kinsella was checking out the leak, I asked him to also bid a new gutter and new siding on the back part of my small, one story, city bungalow. Mike made some recommendations and promptly e-mailed me a bid. Due to some unforeseen circumstances, I did not contact EBS for 5 months. I finally decided to only go ahead with the gutter work. I sent Mike an e-mail and asked him if he needed to re-look at the gutter or re-bid. He promptly sent me a revised bid (to only do the gutter work). A few days after I sent in half the payment, I stepped out my back door and realized the work had been done. Mike was easy to contact and prompt in replying. The work was done professionally and quickly. Everything was cleaned up afterward so well, I didn't even know they had been there. I would definitely recommend them and use them in the future!

Dave came to quote the work on my soffit and fascia for several repairs. The price was fair the repairs were of high quality. He even did extra work at no cost to me as he found a few additional issues. It took several days to finish the work because of weather delays and a few planning errors. I was very pleased with the work.

Everything went smoothly. The work was done quickly and neatly, including clean-up. The roof no longer leaks during storms and my utility bills have decreased due to energy efficiency. And the house looks 100% better.

The work they did for us were - stripped old shingles and felt; replaced damaged sections of roof decking, installed new ridge vents, re-flashed stacks, vents and chimney. Prompt estimate and neat work. Will definitely recommend them to friends and relatives.

I called EBS on 10-31-13 requesting a roof inspection and estimate for the above mentioned repairs. Mike Gatlin called me that same afternoon. We made an appointment for early the next day for the inspection and estimate. He arrived on time, gave me a price I was willing to pay and did the repairs that morning. He was friendly, polite, professional, clearly explained what he proposed to do. I was happy with the appearance of all the repairs. He matched the siding perfectly and much cheaper than another contractor had quoted us. I appreciated the experience very much and will use this company again.

He repaired the flashing on both corners of the dormer walls, replaced lead pipe flashing around a vent on the roof, and replaced a broken piece of drip edge on the siding over the garage. Did a very good job.

They were very focused on trying to make this experience right and to my satisfaction. A few days Later Leo came out personally to my home and inspected what was missed and apologized about the delays. He understood the problem and has already made changes within the company to avoid future issues. I did get a call a day after he visited to schedule the fixes discussed, and due to the cold weather it was decided that they should be performed in warmer weather which I agreed very much with. On every day or so delay as it got colder I received a call from the installer notifying me when the temp would rise to an acceptable level. They arrived on time, and completed my repairs as promised. It was VERY apparent Leo and EBS understands that the customer is the prime focus and needs to match the work. I have since revised my rating to an A because Leo and his team did the right thing and the communication was exactly how I desired it to be. Thank you EBS for making it right!

The process started a little rough, but the smooth ending more than made up for the bump. I contacted 3 roofing companies after suspecting I had roof storm damage. 2 of the 3 came in with bids in the $7500-8000 range, but EBS (this company) originally gave me a bid over $10,500. I was stunned by the bid, but the consistently strong Angie's List reviews for this company made me want to try to figure out what happened. I called one of the co-owners (Leo) directly and told him the situation - he was very surprised and also wanted to find out the problem. Turns out I had a newbie salesman who simply messed up the bid. This incident is the only reason I gave them a B on price. But Leo went way above and beyond to try to get my business after I called him. He was at my house on my roof himself within 24 hours and came in with this bid of $7910, including the ridge vents and architectural shingles.

What impressed me the most with Anthony was that he was concerned with damaging a large tree we have in our landscaping, so much so that he went above and beyond good customer service to make sure the tree was tied back out of the way of his equipment to minimize the damage. The repair was completed, the work area cleaned up, and no damage to our tree. Exterior Building Solutions really puts their customers' needs first. A very professional business, and I will be calling them again for roofing work.

I have nothing bad to say about this company. Anthony Grossman was very polite and took the time to explain the problem and what needed to be done to fix it. Working with Exterior Building Solutions was a pleasure, from working with office staff, original bidder and installer. I would use them again if the occasion arises.

Anthony and Lou did a very good job. I had 5 bids, they were not lowest or highest, but best overall package. Yard and landscaping was covered by tarps during tear off and site was cleaned of debris. It took longer than I expected to get the job started due to their work load, but once started, completed job quickly and thoroughly. Overall very satisfied with their work and would contract with them again.

We had had a bit of work done on this roof already, on and off leaking, and finally got a few quotes on getting this job done once and for all. Exterior Building Solutions was in the middle of the pack, which ranged from $800-13,000. At this point let me say that buying a roof is incredibly confusing, with so many different products and choices of what can be done. We opted for a new roof with Exterior Building Solutions based on their reviews and professionalism. The work was done on time and the cost was exactly as quoted. It didn't rain much until this week so I've waited to post the review. After maybe six inches of rain in two days, I feel confident saying that our new roof is great!

The sales team that came out to do the estimate was professional, on time, responsive. I thought their quote was very fair. They were able to actively work with my insurance company on the repairs that needed to be made. I am always leery of hiring contractors to work on my home but Exterior Building Solutions did an excellent job! Great price and great job indeed. I will definitely use them again.

After the big hailstorm some months ago, I wondered whether my roof was affected. I called my insurance company and to my surprise, was told I needed new roofs, gutters, everything, and that my insurance covered it. I talked to Mike Grossman and was impressed by his knowledgeability, and hired Exterior Building Solutions to fix the roof. When I discovered that the roofers had left my driveway covered with nails, I called, and someone was dispatched almost immediately to clean them up. (He did a terrific job, cleaning up the floor of my garage in the process). This made me think more of the company; problems come up, but how a company deals with it tells you whether or not they're a quality outfit. (Some companies try to make it your fault; Exterior Building Solutions responded rapidly and pleasantly).

We got three estimate and they give us the best presentation explaining all our options and the process involved to get the job done. Price wise they where about the same as the other estimates for similar types of work and materials. once we signed the contract and put down our deposit they did the work that week in about 3 days. They did all that was called for in the contact and did a good job. I was home for two of the three days so I was able to see most of that was done. Overall it looks very good. Only one or two minor issues.

We hired EBS, which was neither the cheapest nor the most expensive. But Anthony spotted things the other guys overlooked or wanted to charge extra for. When the day arrived, the crew, led by foreman Jose, was professional, courteous, neat and friendly. They came back the next day to clean up (a Saturday of a holiday weekend), and then Jose returned one week later to put a few finishing touches on the project. Anthony came out on a Saturday once again to inspect the work for himself - again, the attention to detail is impressive. We didn't expect to have to replace our roof any time soon, but our experience with EBS made it easy. We have already personally recommended EBS to other clients.

I used Angie's List to get bids from 5 companies for the roofing work needed. All bids were responsive, but Exterior Building Solutions were one of the lower prices (not the lowest) and offered the best overall quality solution. They were thorough, very responsive, listened to all my concerns and took time to be sure all my questions were answered (I am an engineer so had a lot of technical questions). They were especially helpful in explaining the various solutions available for my flat roof area which needed special attention. Their solution for this area, although slightly more expensive, was clearly the best way to go. No other contractor suggested or offered this solution. Once we signed the contract in September, weather played havoc on our plans for an install date. Material was here, but good weather was not! They were very flexible in waiting until we had several days of dry weather with temperatures well above 50 degrees to assure the best install conditions. This took a wait of almost 6 months. Once scheduled, everything went as planned. Installation was exactly as described with a super clean up job afterwards. Their gutter sub-contractor was also as professional and skilled as Exterior Building Solutions crew. After 1 week, I had one item that needed adjustment (one gutter downspout needed to be shortened by 1-1/2" to get a better outflow through a tube to the end of the house). Anthony came over the next day and fixed it! No problem, super service.

Had a little problem getting a response to a request for a bid. Found out later it was due to employee not following up. Co-Owner Anthony Grossman got back with me by phone. Came out and gave me estimate for the above work. Also discussed some other issues and he was honest enough to tell me that other work really wasn't needed. Being on a limited income I appreciated that advice. My problem started with storm damage from a tree planted too close to an addition on the back of the house. As the tree grew it branched out and become much too close. Consequently when storm came it batted against and damaged the gutter along this addition. Also one of the branches overhanging the addition did damage to the roof shingles. Rubbed them down. And part of the soffit on the edge just disappeared. Never could find it. Anthony replaced the whole gutter with a seamless one. (Old gutter was in three separate pieces.) Seamless looked so much better. This was done quickly, so much so that one day I came home and it was done! Anthony then came out later on himself and finished up the roof shingle replacement. Matched the old shingles very nicely. Was a hot day and he did a great job. He also replaced the soffit with material I had on hand. All old gutter and shingles were cleaned up and taken away. Nice clean up job. Also received a One Year Warranty on workmanship. Thanks Anthony for taking the time to follow up and get this work done for me!

Overall, everything was handled in a very professional manner. We were notified at the very end of August that the company that had been providing our homeowners insurance for the last 20 years was pulling out of St Louis due to multiple claims with all the storms, tornados, etc. The company that we have our auto insurance with would not insure us as they said we had three layers of roof so all of a sudden we were thrown into the world of finding a roofer. My wife suggested using Angies List to get some good referrals so we did. The first thing we found out is that we only had two layers of roof. Over the next month, we got several bids and overall they were all within $1500 of each other. But what impressed us most about Exterior Building Solutions was their service beforehand. Salesman Dave Green came out and talked to us twice. The second time was on a Sunday when we signed all the paperwork to be able to get the roof done on Oct 3rd - the day our old homeowners policy would expire. Wednesday morning, workers were there way before 7am and every though it was drizzling a little, they sat tight because they knew we needed to get this done. There were a couple little glitches along the way. such as a shortage of material and they got a little something on the garage door. But both issues were handled quickly and efficiently and the garage door looked cleaner than when they had started. I work in a service industry so this meant more to me than pricing. Our roof looks great and the neighbors are asking who did the work. We were very satisfied and would definitely recommend them!!! And we got our new homeowners policy on Oct 3. Thank you Exterior Building Solutions!

The project occurred in two phases. First was shingle/venting removal & replacement. The crew began on Friday, Oct 12th, 2012 and worked until dark (7 p.m., CDT). They placed tarp over the unfinished areas & the foreman informed me that they would return on Saturday the 13th to finish. The crew returned early Saturday morning & the job was completed by 11 a.m. They performed a sweep of the area for debris & nails both Friday evening & again on Saturday prior to departing. The foreman kept me informed of what was going on & that a different crew would be on site at a later date for the gutter replacement. Gutter removal/replacement occurred on Monday, Oct 22nd. It only took a few hours & again the foreman kept me informed of what would happen. This crew also swept the area for debris after they were finished. Final inspection occurred Tuesday Nov 6th. I am currently waiting on the final bill. I found E.B.S. to be a good company to work with. They provide a project manager (& phone number) to communicate with. The crews worked hard, were proficient & cleaned up after themselves. I had already chosen E.B.S. in my own mind before joining Angie's list & checking them out. That they had a 5% Angie's coupon just sealed the deal for me.

I called for a on new flat roof, removing old layers, and other hidden problems, and got it. it did take a while for new roof to be installed, but it was understandable due to recent major storms. I tried other companies and they didn't even call back. because we did have a leak, Mike K went up the day he quoted a price and did a short term patch until new roof could be installed. When he came back to have us sign the contract and give him the go ahead, he did another short term patch in another area I was concerned about. the crew showed up on the day they said,and worked straight for 10 hours and then came back on a Saturday to finish...another 5 hours. They cleaned up and were very pleasant. I am very pleased with their work. From start to finish I was kept informed. from ordering materials, delivery of materials to site, start dates, work that was completed, work they would come back to complete next day, clean-up, billing, quality control inspection, everything. I would definitely 100% hire them again. Best contracting experience I ever had. The office even called me to confirm receipt of my final payment in the mail! Thank You EBS!

It took a while because of the storm. They did everything well. I think I would recommend them. They did everything we asked them to do and if something wasn't right, they did everything they could do to make it right for us. They were really good on customer service. They fixed a couple of things that we didn't like without charging. They seemed to be pretty competitive on price.

Mr. G responded to my phone call promptly. We arranged to met shortly after 4 that day and when when I got home about 4:10 he was there and had already assessed the problem...then he also checked inside garage attic to find the leakage into the attic there near chimney. He gave an estimate and since he had a good rating on Angie's list I decided to go with him (I did not get bids because there were water spot on my family room ceiling and I was afraid of a big storm--which we had about a week after he got repaired.) We had experienced a failure of a roof vent system in 2008 and had extensive drywall damage and had the roof replaced by a neighbor who is now out of business...so I may have future concerns.I wanted to wait a bit to watch to see if I had a bigger spot, but I think it has been fine since his repair. I will call him again as I do have other concerns. I referred the co. to my son John and also to my secretary whose daughter had them do work at her home as well. I was VERY pleased! My repair was complete in about a week...he had to order shingles and we had to wait over the weekend. Thank you!

I am extremely happy with their performance and their professionalism. I have an old house and there was a problem getting the old gutters off the first time and a hole where a squirrel could get in. They informed me of the problems, got my ok and fixed them without additional charges. They go the extra mile and their work is excellent.

It went very well, and he was very knowledgeable. His work is of high quality. He replaced a roof that had just been installed and was leaking, and he fixed the problem. He really went above and beyond to meet my expectations.When I was getting quotes from several roofers, he was the only one to offer to tarp the top of the roof to protect the house from further water damage. He didn't even have my business, and yet he was still willing to offer this to me.

From the initial call to completion, I was very pleased with the service. The woman in the office was very friendly and I felt confident from the start I would get good service. Someone came out quickly and looked at the problem, both inside and out. The bid came in $100 lower than another estimate I received (plus they offered an Angie's List discount). The workers came out the next week and, in fact, worked in the evening to get the job done. I would highly recommend them.

Process was very professional. Sales person came to the house, took photos of the roof and trouble spots to confirm we needed a new roof, then briefed us on options including clever new roof vents with eave air intakes to provide attic ventilation. Their bid was in the middle of two others, but their thoroughness and attention to detail was what convinced us to go with EBS. We expected the work to take 2.5 to 3 days...actually did it in a day and a half. Work crew was courteous, quiet, and attentive to the shrubs. Clean up was outstanding with a couple of follow ups to ensure they got all the nails and trash. All in all a very satisfying experience. And the roof vents really work...we can tell the difference: on hot days the a/c doesn't run constantly like it used to and the upstairs is noticeably cooler. Thanks EBS

Came up with a solution for a gutter problem that I have had for many years. Installed a new down spout and rerouted old gutters. Also replaced 3 cap shingles on the roof. Did a great job for a reasonable price.

I had a persistent roof leak, that had started attracting Carpenter Ants. I sat down on a Saturday morning calling numerous roofers, only a hand full responded. Tony not only called back but stopped by the same day and fixed right away. I am very happy with work that was done.

Called for an estimate on leak repair in our roof. Estimator was very punctual and did an excellent job identifying problem, explaining problem and showing pictures of the problem. Asked about installation of a solar tube which he said he would include with the estimate of the roof repair. Estimate came within the week. Took numerous calls to get a date for repairs to be done. I know the ordering of the solar tube delayed things but once they were reminded about the leak in the roof they sent Mike out promptly to fix the plumbing stacks. Mike was great. He got right to work and communicated everything done. Other than no more leaks you could not tell Mike was here. Everything was cleaned up! Once the solar tube came in Mike was right out. Again, he did a great job. He was very excited about the installation of the solar tube which was fun. We are very happy with the solar tube and are thinking about having another one installed....by the same company!

They are done with the roof and that went great. It has been very easy to work with them on timing (they came two weeks earlier than expected and called a day ahead to let us know) and other arrangements. We are very pleased. Everyone has been very nice and professional.

We had an extremely positive experience. We called EBS at first thinking we needed a repair. Anthony was prepared to repair the roof, but was candid that our roof was of terrible quality and we were just sticking our finger in a crack in the dam. Anthony gave an incredibly competitive bid, and was very patient with all of our questions.

EBS was so responsive to our small projects. They made sure that someone came out quickly to fix the fascia so it would not get worse with the continued forecast for storms and wind. I was really impressed by this. Further, Anthony came to fix our roofing for the ice-damming himself to make sure we did not wait too long for that repair.

Their quote is for $3800. I found them on Angie's List. So far I have not had any problem with them. I think they have been accurate. Everybody can be nice upfront but need to wait and see what happens when they do the roof. I will consider them in the future.
