Latest BBB Review

by Vanderheyden, Inc. on 10/30/14

I am pleased with the service received from Vanderheyden, Inc.. There was a leak in my roof and another contractor had inspected the area and quoted a lot of work necessary to make the repair. When ****** came out to inspect without knowledge it had been previously inspected he inspected the area and said there was no structural damage and with minimal effort we could make the repairs on the inside with a paint brush and Kilz. . ****** inspected the attic and the roof, quoted the price for repairs which I agreed to. He said he would email me the invoice confirming the price and send his employee out today to make the repairs. Within one hour of his departure, **** arrived to make the roof repairs. He was courteous, focused on the job and as I observed his work it was extremely thorough. I am pleased with Vanderheyden, Inc expedient service, the price was affordable, employees are conscientious and I would highly recommend the company for consideration when roofing repairs are necessary. The office staff are also very nice. Give them a try. A satisfied consumer.

Vanderheyden, Inc. tore down 2 old decks and moved an air conditioner deck and rebuilt them on my 3 story town home. They replaced rotten wood, took down all shutters, repaired structural damage, put new siding, trim and soffits up, installed a large picture window with accordion shutter. they pulled all permits and passed county inspections on all the work they did. The workers were professional and friendly taking care of my property and making sure everything was locked before they left. Although they did not work on my place every day the entire job was completed within 7 months. We were very happy with all the work performed.

Description Of Work: 
Repaired porch ceiling vinyl siding.  Several vinyl panels were hanging loose from high wind damage.
Member Comments: 

He came out at 5:30 PM on a Friday evening to estimate the job and fixed the problem on the spot.  I am very satisfied with the repairs he made to the ceiling siding.  He initially secured the end panel with several nails and then screwed nails through the panels in several places to insure they did not come loose again.  The job took about 30 minutes to complete.


I retired from the Air Force where I worked in electronic equipment installation and maintenance, and was very impressed with the work provided.

Sheila Trimble — 5 star
"We used Vanderheyden to replace our roof after the flood we had earlier this year! They were very personable, when we met for the estimate! Herman is a very good guy and very professional! Knows his business's for sure! The estimate beat everyone else, and had excellent products also! We couldn't be happier with our choice! Also wouldn't hesitate to use them again for anything we need done! They are very thorough about everything all the way ! I did a lot of research and I'm glad I found Vanderheyden! You won't be disappointed if you choose them for your needs! They will listen if you have any questions about any issues that may come up! I'd recommend them for anyone in need of their kind of services! Thank you Vanderheyden for a very pleasant experience! And special thanks to Herman!"

Michelle Estes "I would highly commend this business to anyone considering Hurricane or upcoming storm protection. Herman, the owner, has done a fabulous, efficient, timely, and professional job on our many, many windows installed in our 2-story Colonial-type home. Also, he is a master roofer as well! I'm calling him again for my upcoming indoor improvements in the upcoming near future. . He is thoroughly knowledgeable, has excellent job integrity (what he tells you he will do, he absolutely does, and impressed w the timeliness of getting the job done!). Impressed w his communication. This is the man to call before and after a storm bots. i felt at ease knowing our windows were all protected. we purchased the clear corrugated panes and have just left them up now, and no one can really tell they're on their, and it looks fine. i like the clear because i can pit them up one time, and keep them there for the 6-month hurricane season without having to remove and replace them. Very good price too!"

Gary Bouch VP Operations Planning & EngineeringHerman Vanderheyden is dedicated to satifying customers. He is a true professional with many talents. When I recently contacted Herman about hurricane storm shutters and a new roof, he came to me with three options for each, discussing the pros and cons, so that I could make the right protection and cost decision for for my rental unit. He was prompt on his first meeting with me, walked me around my rental unit to make sure he understood what I wanted, and pointed out impantant considerations as we inspected. His follow-up was prompt by email so I could share with other owners of a four-plex. Further, he quickly responded to additional questions from others as needed. I was impressed with his overall business approach, his professionalism, and personality. I plan to do future work with Herman."

Dee Ferguson says “Vanderhayden provided excellent service. We wanted Bahama shutters and had been told by other companies it wasn't possible. Vanderhayden not only said it was possible but delivered and installed beautifully made Bahamas that are the envy of our neighborhood. Several people have asked for information on our shutters and remark how well made and attractive they are. We are pleased with the service, the look, and the quality. Vanderhayden can't be beat! The customer service aspect of the project was a big reason we chose this company. A family owned and operated business makes a big difference in the end result. 
Reccommend this company highly!!!"

Herman,

Thank you for a great job...the work is top notch, your crews are great to work with and you are a really easy, competent and reliable person to work with.  I would and do recommend you highly to my friends and colleagues.

— Tom Reynolds—Niceville, FL

 

 Hi, Herm; 

Sorry I have taken so long to thank you for fixing up my house for the hurricanes.  Your crew did a

fantastic job and their work ethic is unbeatable.  Many people have stopped and admired the new shutters and most couldn’t believe they were up there as they blend in with the house so much.  Your cost was more than comparable to other companies and the way you provided assistance for getting my grant for MSFH was really great.

--- R.C. Godfrey Major, USMC — Gulf Breeze, FL

 

Dear Sir;

It was a great pleasure having you do the contracted improvements for our home.  These improvements involved your visit, measuring various windows, an estimate, the agreement and installation of Fabric-Shield.  You and your employees exhibited nothing but professional conduct.  They represent you and your company in an extraordinary manner.  I believe it is called good people skills.  Your attention to detail, the giving of competent advice, fairness of cost related to product and above all, professional conduct reassures us, we made the right decision with you.  Feel free to use this communication in whatever manner you deem best.

Most sincerely, W.L. Stafford — Pensacola, FL

 

Dear Sir;

            I wish to express my appreciation and satisfaction for the hurricane mitigation work performed on my dwelling this past week.  Your crew which consisted of Jeff, Dusty and Gary are to be complimented for their promptness, professionalism, and work ethic, completing all work in one and on-half days.

            In the past, particularly since 2004, I have engaged several crews for roof replacement, repairs, and landscaping projects and none compared to you crew including clean-up after finishing.

            Thank you also for attention to details in preparation for work and follow-up after completion.

                                                               Ralf Fuller — Pensacola, FL

 

Thanks so much for all that you did to help us get the Sunsetter up!  You really didn't HAVE to send an installer out, but you did and it was much appreciated.  Steve also wanted me to tell you thank you and when it comes time to get new windows for the front of the house he wants to use your company again since you are a "stand up" guy.  

 

Thanks again.

Cathy Pleasants
