Tom Green is wonderful. He is a true professional. He did a thorough inspection of my current roof and a ventilation issues I was having in my attic. He gave wonderful advice and a great solution, plus recommended a product that I like very much. Exterior Medics has been used by a family member for many years and they always provided exceptional work.
Roofers were clean, professional, knowledgeable, and courteous to existing neighbors. Project manager kept me informed every step of the way! I highly recommend!

We had a great experience with Exterior Medics. They replaced our roof which was 30+ years old along with gutters. The price was very reasonable (much better than many other companies that gave us quotes) and Ron was wonderful to work with throughout the entire process.

Melanie has excellent customer service skills, she is very professional, and always quick to respond to emails or phone calls. I would definitely recommend this company if you care about quality service and workmanship!

Crew was on time; excellent work; cleaned up properly after the work was completed. Mr. Ernesto Lopez was the supervisor and he was extremely responsive. He listened to our concerns and made certain that all of the work was done to a high standard and met our approval with a final review. Office staff also extremely responsive. Would highly recommend this company.
