We will definitely recommend Countryside Roofing to anyone needing a new roof, siding or windows. Thank youI want to thank you for the super job you & your crew did on our roof & siding. It is very hard to find competent contractors these days and I was very pleased with your workers. Mario handled everything from how to deal with the insurance company to ordering materials, tips on what to do with the window frames, to scheduling the work and what to expect. Everything he said how and when it would happen did in fact happen that way, no surprises, no delays. The siding guys were professionals from the beginning to the end, I was amazed that they finished the job in one day and 2 ½ hours. I have and will recommend your company to all my friends. Thank you!Thank You for the quick turnover time on several jobs this year. We appreciate the quality work and staying in the tight time frames requested. We look forward to working with you in the future.I wanted to take an opportunity to say how much of a pleasure it was to do business with your firm. The roofing and siding work you performed at our current construction sites for residential Condominiums and Single-Family living at 3933 South Wells St. and 3929 South Wells St. was excellent! We appreciated your follow-through in handling whatever needs or concerns that we may had throughout the process. Your workers performed with the utmost professionalism and cleanliness! It has not been an easy process to hold contractors accountable for cleanup follow their respective trades, so we sincerely appreciate that! The small things really make a difference to us in establishing life-long business and personal relationships. As a result, it will be our pleasure in making sure we refer your firm to other developers and home-builders in the Chicago land area to have their needs met. Again, we thank for the work performed and look forward to more business in the NEAR future!Thank you so much! I am so pleased. You all were great. Tell the crew I was impressed!We want to thank you and all of your workmen for the recent job you did on our roof and gutters in Batavia. It is so risky these days to hire “unknown” companies to do work on your home. It is so hard to separate out the responsible, honest, fair companies from those who appear to be such. When my wife got your name from one of her clients I thought -well, it won’t hurt to just call and talk with you. Our experience with Countryside, from start to finish, has been excellent. You did what you said you were going to do, when you said you were going to do it and at a very fair cost. We have had several friends look at your quote as well as the finished job and remark what a great deal we got. We feel the same way. Your products are excellent, your workmen are polite, friendly and do very high quality work. We are very pleased. If we can ever serve as references for your company please let us know. We have already spread your name throughout our family, church and personal jobs. Thank you again very much.We recently had a new roof and gutters on our home in June. We had estimates other than your company and your representative, Mario, greatly impressed us. He was the reason we chose Countryside, and we were not disappointed. We are more than pleased with everything. We would not hesitate to recommend your company to anyone. Whenever we had a question and called Mario, he promptly called us back and made sure everything was taken care of. Thank you again. We are very glad we chose you.I just wanted to let you know how pleased my husband and I have been with all your work. We recently had new windows, new siding, new roof and also the soffits and fascia wrapped by your company and can’t believe how perfect everything is!!! I have to sing the praises of Mario Ciucci who has been so darn great to us!!! He is very helpful and professional and just all around great with every aspect of the job!! I have recommended your company and Mario to all my neighbors and I hope you are able to get some new business from them. Please make sure to applaud Mario on a job WELL DONE!!! Thanks for everything. We are so pleased!!We recently had our roof replaced by COUNTRYSIDE ROOFlNG SIDING & WINDOWS, INC. I feel I would be amiss if I didn’t explain my experience with your company. The quality of your workmanship, professionalism and expediency of the project was by far the best I have ever seen, considering I came from the roofing industry. The entire communication process with your Senior Field Representative, Mario from start to finish was extremely professional. His help in explaining the entire process from colors, detail of the job, what was needed, what was not, when the crew would arrive when they would be finished, and the process of cleaning up with a magnetic rack brought us comfort. Mario went beyond the call of duty; answering a few of my “finicky” late night weekday and weekend calls. He always returned my phone call in a timely manner. Your crews…..U…N..BELIEVABLE. These guys work together like music.Thank you for doing our roof. I am very pleased with the job that you performed. Your workers were polite and fast. They did a great job! I was very pleased with how fast the job was completed from the time it took to get the quote to the completion of the job. Thank you for keeping us up to date as to when the job could or could not be done, according to the weather. Again, Thank you!
Roofing and siding storm damage seems to be more common and severe. The most common forms of storm damage are hail, wind and lightning strikes. Insurance companies cover all of the types of storm damage. The obvious damage is easily identifiable, but the smaller less visible damage can often times cause the most damage in the long term and requires a trained eye to identify. Understanding how insurance companies evaluate home owner claims for hail, wind and lightning damage is the key to ensuring that you are being fairly compensated in the process. We assist home owners by meeting with the adjusters during the inspection, auditing the insurance company estimates for covered items, quantities, pricing and local Building Code upgrade requirements. Dealing with insurance adjusters and managing construction projects thoroughly is a unique combination of skill sets. Countryside Roofing, Siding and Windows is one of the few companies that has mastered this combination of skills.
Advice to the Home Owner
Protect Yourself and be wary of the Storm Chasers.
After a substantial storm hits, Storm Chasing contractors and installers come from all over the the United States to capitalize on the insurance related work. Frequently, many of these contractors leave town with unfinished work or with insurance checks in hand without any work having been performed. There are firms that rent roofing licenses from local companies in order to pull the necessary building permits to install jobs. Out of town sales representatives flood the market place. These companies are profit driven and not quality driven. They look for cheapest way to install jobs. They have mastered cutting corners on material quality as well as short cutting all quality installation techniques. Most of these out of state companies, sales reps and installers will leave at a moments notice for the next big storm in another state. The phones start ringing with complaints and fraud issues after they leave town.
How to identify storm chasers?
Look for the out of state licenses plates. Listen for an accent that is not local. Ask to see their driver’s license to see if they are from out of state. Research the firm through the Illinois Attorney General Office at 800-386-5438.
