5.0 Melissa M. Midlothian, VA

I've already recommended exterior alternatives, inc to our family and friends. But I feel the need to write a review on here as well. We could not be more pleased with this company. The moment we started our project, companies came out of the woodwork to give us a quote for vinyl siding. Fran took the time to go over details, giving her honest recommendations. Never once did I feel pressure from her. This was huge, believe me there was plenty of pressure from other companies. Fran took time to make sure we knew exactly what we needed. She was extremely easy to work with. The project itself was very fast once it got started. The crew was extremely professional, respectful, and conscientious of my family. I was able to approach them with questions if needed, and Fran came out to check quality everyday. The team has been together for several years now, which is impressive in this line of work. The quality of their craftsmanship is excellent as well. We have more projects in mind for the future. And we will be going with exterior alternatives, inc. We really are grateful to have found such a solid team to work with for our home.


Contractor completed an inspection, provided a detailed description of the work required, provided displays of the material to be used, provided a breakdown of the cost, time frame to complete the activity and acceptable payment options. Work force were proficient in their actions and on time everyday.

5.0 Dan S. Montpelier, VA

Fran and the work crew headed up by Orlando did a fantastic professional job from start to finish. The pricing was very reasonable and the quality of the work is five stars. They made design suggestions along the way that added to the looks and performance of the siding and they made certain everything was done correctly and on time and the job site cleaned up better than they found it. I really appreciated seeing Fran each day checking on me and my satisfaction with the job being done, it's not often you get that kind of attention. I would highly recommend Exterior Alternatives.

5.0 Robert S. Henrico, VA

I hired Exterior Alternatives to replace our roof, gutters, siding, and exterior window trim. Fran was great to work with. She brought over siding samples on a few different occasions to help us with the color choice, and responded to emails/texts promptly throughout the entire process. She also visited the job site frequently to check on the work and to make sure we were satisfied with everything. She definitely cares about the quality of work she provides. I would highly recommend Exterior Alternatives to anyone looking for exterior work on their home.

5.0 Chad R. Sandston, VA

Fran and her crew are awesome. Upfront , professional, curteous and talented. Fran is a no nonsense person and knows her stuff, she kept us informed and answered all of our questions. 100% go with her and her crew! We are more than happy with how our home has turned out.

4.0 Felicia H. Richmond, VA

Fran was there to explain it all every step of the way. It was as if I was giving birth & she was the midwife!!!! LOL! Very important for a woman homeowner to trust contractors without feeling pressured or duped in the process & it was nice dealing with a woman contractor. Nice crew as well!

5.0 Gary J. Henrico, VA

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
