I couldn't be happier with my experience with Exterior Medics! I called to get an estimate for a new storm door. Eric was extremely responsive and professional and had a quote back to me very quickly. It was a great experience I highly recommend!!!
I live in a condo that had been plagued with a leaking terrace. [Exterior Medics] came in, took it to the studs, replaced two windows and a door, repaired the years of damage, relined and repainted and havenâ€™t seen a drop of water since. Their crew was polite, respectful, responsive and showed up on time for each scheduled meeting.
Exterior Medics is extremely reliable and awesome to work with! They have been able to squeeze alot of emergency projects for my community into their schedule, which has been such a lifesaver for my residents and I. The Board and community are always extremely pleased with the efficiency and quality of their work.
In spite of contending with very wet weather the work was very well done and we were very pleased.
