Checked online for company with best references and found Freedom Midwest Gutters and Siding, LLC. The owner, Hal Knapp, provided me with addresses of houses his company had put siding on, including one in the exact color and design I was interested in. Checked all 4 references provided and found the work to be exceptional. Decided to go with Mr. Knapp. I'm glad I did. From the start, Hal was definitely on top of my project. He helped interface with my insurance company and secured me larger payment amounts for several areas the insurance company needed to increase. His knowledge of the business and the insurance claims procedure enabled me to get a much larger payment from the insurance company. He always had material needed on site and ready to go when needed. And a word about his work crew. The guys on the crew arrived every day an hour early. They worked straight through, skipping breaks, took short lunches, worked until dusk every day. Talk about old-time pride and workmanship! They never left a mess at the end of the day, no trash in the yard, no radio blasting loud music, no cigarette butts. I was present for each day and checked at the end of the day for any problems. There weren't any! These guys did it right the first time. They even found a construction flaw from when the house was originally built and corrected it without missing a beat. Hal was on hand every day, making sure material was ready, checking for little things like fasteners, caulk, etc. Everyone seemed to be on top of the job. I have seen many work crews in the neighborhood over the years, but I have never seen a crew this good or a job run this well. I'm very glad I found Freedom Midwest Windows and Siding, LLC. Based on my experience, I would use them again in a heartbeat and I recommend them without reservation.
Fantastic!!! Hal walked the site with the insurance adjuster which really helped me get a very comprehensive claim! The work was done professionally and within schedule and on budget. Any issues that arose were handled quickly and completely with with NO PUSH BACK AT ALL! Hal approached any questions about the job that I had with an open mind and either made the changes that I requested or spent the time to show me why something had to be executed in a certain manner. Hal appreciated my military veteran status and treated my family and me with incredible respect! Hal's crews ensured that the job site was left clean every night and did a wonderful job on the final cleanup when the job was complete! Hal is a man of the incredible integrity and honors his warranties quickly, completely and professionally! Hal will be my go to for any future work of this nature that I need done.
We can sum up our experience with Hal and his team in one word: EXCEPTIONAL! From the start of the project to the very end, Hal was amazing. He consistently kept us informed from ordering materials, to scheduling the siding installation, to completing the work and then walking through at project completion. He was a pleasure to work with and we would recommend him to anyone looking for siding, windows, roofing. Hal's team of installers were equally amazing. Very professional and extremely hard working. Their attention to detail was incredible. They completed the project in two days and there was not a spec of debris left behind. He has the best crew ever! We would highly recommend Freedom Midwest to anyone looking to for new siding, soffits, windows or roofing. There is no doubt in my mind that if we ever have to replace any of these items again, our first and only call will be to Hal.
The gentleman that did the work was Dale and his assistant. They were extremely professional and nice. They worked continuously each day until the project was completed. I could not be happier with the result. It was obvious I hit the jackpot with this company. Dale cares about his work and was meticulous when caulking. He is a true professional and proud of his work. He cleaned the area afterwards and even wiped his hand prints off where needed. I dealt with hal on the quote and he beat the competition. I cannot believe how well they matched my siding. I will recommend freedom midwest windows and siding to everyone.
We chose Hal and Freedom Midwest from a list of four companies, all recommended by friends and co-workers. His bid for our siding/gutters job was reasonable and we were also impressed by his knowledge and ability to accommodate his customers. Mike and his crew worked on the project. They needed to put a new vinyl siding over the old Masonite one. There were many little challenging details in the house that required extra attention and professionalism to take care of. The crew took their time and did a great job. I must add that I am a very demanding client and Hal and the crew were able to satisfy all my requirements. The house looks amazing now and we are very happy with the result.
I'm the highly skeptical type (especially when it comes to quality of work, as I work in the construction industry) so I was a bit nervous doing such a major renovation as a first time home owner with a 40 year old house. So I'm on here writing this because Hal went beyond all my expectations and I want to support the few good contractors out there (let's be honest they're hard to find). Hal was prompt to every appointment, available late into the evenings via phone (never heard his voicemail because he always answered), met us on multiple Saturday's, all his information was accurate and easy to understand - no sales bs! and even made special arrangements to make sure we had our gutters up before it rained the next day (which it did rain and Hal, thanks again!). The workers finished our 2000 square ft home in 3 days - start to finish. I looked hard to find some annoying piece of scrap debris laying around my yard once the demo & installation was complete (I'm OCD like that) only to find not one piece, anywhere. So not only is Hal awesome, but his workers are too from start to finish. You're on here looking for the professional, hard working , "the job is not finished until you're completely satisfied" contractor with the right guys doing the dirty work - Hal and his guys are exactly that. He will be my first call when it comes time to replace my roof. High highly recommend.
