    Howardâ s craftsmanship is next to none and we are so pleased with all of the work he did on our home. His attention to detail was exquisite and his 40+ years experience shows. Would definitely recommend!

    5.0 Patricia N. Auburn, CA

    I needed a deck repair and was dealing with someone else who led me on for a month with only one estimate...done one way. They would not do what I wanted (less repair). Howard at Lane Home Improvement called me to tell me he usually did not do the work I was wanting but came by to give me pointers, answer questions and tell me what he thought needed done even though he knew he probably would not be taking the job. I mean.....who does that?? Howard was so nice and easy to work with and fit me in before another big job he had lined up. I hired him just because he is so nice and then hoped for the best. I could not be more happy with the job. Plus.....he got started right away and worked with my budget. I would recommend him to anyone.

    Response from Company:

    Thank You Patty for taking the time to post this detailed and great review!!!

    5.0 David R. Santa Rosa, CA

    Howard Lane is a very conscientious business owner. He is meticulous in his work and lets you know how the project is going throughout. Just what you need in a contractor.

    Response from Company:

    Thank You Dave! It was fun making your house look the nicest and newest on the block! Howard.

    5.0 Harry B. Santa Rosa, CA

    4.0 Nila J. Santa Rosa, CA

    Response from Company:

    Thanks for taking the time to give your ratings Nila, a fun project to waterproof and reside, tearing off the old redwood 9" exposure siding and installing the 1/2" OSB sheathing to give shear strength and flat surface to install James Hardie 9" exposure, pre-primed product. Great to meet you guys!

    5.0 John G. Santa Rosa, CA

    I was so fortunate to find Howard. My home needed a complete siding replacement and I decided to use fiber cement siding in hopes of only having to do this project once in my lifetime. Howards bid came in far lower than the big contracting companies. If it were not for him, I would not have been able to afford to do this project. Howard is a real pro with tons of experience and does all the work himself. He has an eye for detail and his craftsmanship is phenomenal. A man of true character. I would strongly recommend Lane Home Improvement for your siding project.

    Response from Company:

    Thank you, John, for your kind review! It was a pleasure working for you and making your home stand out among the others, you and I can together be proud of it. Howard

    5.0 Sherry L. Windsor, CA

    Working with Howard gave us confidence the work would be done right. He made sure we were pleased with all aspects in completion of the projects. We highly recommend him & his expertise. Thank you, Sherry

    Response from Company:

    Thank you for the kind review! I do want to add though that this job turned out to be Repair T-111 siding where it was dry-rotted, roof tear-off and re-roof with 40 year roof, new gutters and downspouts, install one cut-in octagonal window, and paint whole house. It was a pleasure, Howard Lane, Lane Home Improvement
