HOME ADVISOR CLIENT TESTIMONIALS
In need of new siding for our house, we began looking for a reliable contractor. Our search led us to Home advisor where we found Sensible Home Products. We called and set up a meeting with Jeremy. Jeremy came out to the house to review and discuss what we wanted to do. He listened to our needs and provided a sample of the siding he was recommending for our house. We asked if he did more than just siding since we were also looking for a new front door, bay window, and garage doors. Jeremy provided catalogs and options for us to think about in picking out the doors and windows for our project. Jeremy assured us he would be able to do the entire project in a timely manner. We requested and received a reasonable quote for the amount of work we were looking at getting done and ultimately signed a contract with Jeremy for the work. On the day the project was to begin Jeremy and his crew were there early and worked every day, weather permitting. His crew was very professional and quickly showed that they really knew what they were doing. They showed up early and stayed late when required to get a job done. Each night they took the time to clean up the property and store the materials away for the next day. As the project progressed it became evident that we also needed a new roof. Again, Jeremy explained what he and his crew could do and provided a quote to get the work done. There was never any pressure from Jeremy to do the roof in fact just the opposite since doing the roof would mean he had to re-schedule some of his other work to get this done for us. Jeremy did re-schedule his work and we got the new roof. Not only did Jeremy show up at the house everyday but he was in constant contact on the phone to make sure the project was going as we had planned. They took a 38 year old house that looked worn and made it look new again, we couldnâ t be more pleased. Special thanks to Jeremyâ s entire crew but in particular Victor, Vlad, and Andrew who are truly outstanding at what they do. We very highly recommend Sensible Home Products for any home repairs you may require.Larry F. in Rocky Hill, CT
Absolutely no pressure sales. Jeremy came out looked at the house, LISTENED to what we wanted to do. He made some suggestions and we discussed…but never any pressure with respect to materials, colors, etc… We contracted a large job (Roof, Siding, Garage Doors) and we were given a very fair price (based on competing quotes for labor and materials). They weren’t the cheapest, but I’ve gone that route before. Once they started, Sensible Home worked everyday that they were able (barring weather). Each night, the property was cleaned of debris and materials neatly stored the next day. Typically, Jeremy would call at least once a day to explain what was completed and next steps. If something came up, Jeremy would call, explain the issue and give us a few options to decide how to proceed. He was very sensitive to our budget all the way through the process. At the end of the day we went from probably the most “tired” looking house on the street to the nicest. If you’re willing to invest in your home to improve the appeal, value, whatever…then Sensible Home Products should be part of your pool of contractors bidding. All in all, they took what could have been a very stressful process and turned it into a positive experience.Karl A. in Rocky Hill, CT
As a former “Installation Compliance Specialist” for James Hardie’s Siding division, I’m an authority on Best-Practices with respect to proper siding installation. Sensible Home Products really knocked it out of the park. The entire experience was above what I expected and I can’t say enough good things about them. The little things matter, every cut, trim piece, and accent. The professionalism and attention to detail that Jeremy and his crew brought to our home were second to none. They were polite, professional and I was impressed with their neatness, knowledge and work ethic. They didn’t rush through the job, but made sure everything was done to perfection. Now a little bit about the owner Jeremy… I found working with Jeremy very easy. He sat down with us to review every aspect of the project, explained things in great detail, from the type of siding (he even brought out a sample of what I wanted vs. a sample of what he prefers to use) and benefits of each, to the small detail work around existing plugs and vents. Jeremy worked tirelessly to get the project done within our budget. He is honest and reliable. He kept us updated on the progress of the project; even touching base on the weekend. He was patient with our every question (and there were many). If Jeremy felt anything extra had to be done to make the end result perfect, he called us and we discussed our options before moving forward. Thank goodness for his guidance! I can’t believe how great our house looks now. If you could see the before and after photos, you would never believe it was the same house! So many of our neighbors have complimented us on the look. I very highly recommend Sensible Home Projects to anyone that needs siding.Emory M. in Cheshire, CT
Short version – Sensible Home Products has done a phenomenal job on our home. We are so glad we found Jeremy and his high rating is definitely deserved. We had a roof, vinyl siding, door/window trim, a few windows, garage doors, and garage trim all completed by his team in quick order. I was very impressed with the crew’s professionalism and attention to detail. The work was completed quickly and afterwards there was no debris left to pick up. In fact, the dumpster was out of the driveway 30 minutes after the job was complete. Nice touch J. Long version – My neighborhood was hit with a freak hailstorm in Mid-May 2018. Tennis ball sized hail did a number to my house and every other house in a 2 mile radius. The very next day, the construction equivalent of ambulance chasers from all over the country converged and promised homeowners to fix it right. Big fancy trucks, matching uniforms, glossy pamphlets. Naturally suspicious of the convenience that they were selling I held off and met with local contractors and finally Jeremy (because of the high ratings). I am sure glad I waited. He laid everything out for me, showed me the quality of is work, suggested a few improvements within my budget and got right to work for us. Besides the quality of work I witnessed in pictures what really struck a chord with me was that his crew has been with him for years. It shows a lot of character in the construction business to have a crew work that many years for one general contractor. I could tell he cared about taking care of his crews and doing right by the customer. Fast forward 2 week before construction was to start and we had buyer’s remorse on the color choice for the home. I still feel bad but Jeremy really went to bat for us on siding already custom made for our job and got it switched to a different color. It wasn’t without some hardship so please, if you do decide on a color, stick to it. I’m not sure Jeremy could take another last minute change of that magnitude. Construction begins in early November. The construction crew shows up on time every day the weather permitted and even some days when it didn’t. They had many, many windows and doors that required trimming out and, if there’s one thing Jeremy takes greatest pride in, it’s the trim work. There was one gentleman bending metal full time each and every day on the job and I continue to be amazed at the quality of their work. Whereas most aluminum trim is flat, they actually made several bends in the metal to give it depth and pop out more. Additionally, we ponied up for the Azek trim around the garage doors and wow! what a difference. I get compliments daily on how great the doors and trim look. As a consequence of having such a great looking house with everything so well put together I now see other homes differently. You never recognize the poor craftsmanship and cut corners until you see great craftsmanship. I thought my house looked good and that’s why I bought it a few years ago. With the new siding/roof it made me realize how old and tired the house was. One last feather in Jeremy’s cap is that he is a great communicator. There may not have been a day over the past month that I haven’t spoken with him about the project. In comparison, my neighbor sent a large check to another contractor and has not been able to reach him for the past few weeks. In summary, the hailstorm was the worst/best thing to happen to this house and Sensible Home Products really went above and beyond in every facet of this construction project. Cheers Jeremy, great job.Andrea W. in Granby, CT
I can’t say enough good things about Sensible Home Products! I hired them to remodel my 1922 carriage style garage, which was in pretty tough shape, in need of some structural repairs; as well as, siding and garage doors. Jeremy worked tirelessly to get the project done within my budget. He arranged for his one of his best team members, Andrew Silva, to complete the repairs and siding and garage doors. They did a phenomenal job!! If you could see the before and after photos, you would never believe it was the same structure! I found working with Jeremy very easy. He is honest and reliable. He kept me updated on the progress of the project; even touching base on the weekend. I would very highly recommend Sensible Home Projects for all new builds or remodel projects!Sheila M. in Newington, CT
The entire experience was above what I expected. I was impressed with the knowledge and care the team had for their product and work. The guys who installed the siding were polite and professional. They took off the existing siding and replaced several areas of rotting boards. I canât believe how great my house looks now. I didnât expect such an improvement. In addition, I have used less air conditioning when it is hot and heat when it turned cold.Barbara E. in Coventry, CT
Iâve had very few home improvement projects exceed my expectations, but the siding work Sensible Home did on my house did just that. Jeremy sat down with me to review every aspect of the project, from the type of siding and benefits of each to the small detail work around existing plugs and vents. He was patient with my every question (and there were many) and explained things in great deal. At the end of the day, my focus was not on priceâalthough Sensible was competitive with the other vendors who gave me quotesâbut on quality. At the end of the day, the project was delivered on and on budget and it made my house striking. The little things matter and every cut, trim piece, and accent speaks to the level of quality Jeremy and his people bring to their work. I could not be happier with the finished product and every one of my neighbors has complimented me on the look.Jon F. in Southington, CT
For those of you who dont have the time to read this entire review, heres the short version: excellent customer service and master craftsmen with a strong eye for detail. My house was transformed! Now for the detailed review. I met Jeremy (the owner) in January of this year as I was beginning my research into replacing my windows and adding siding to my 62-year-old house. I liked him from the start and honestly was tempted to look no further, but due diligence is key for a project of this size and cost. So I met with the other big companies that are advertised on TV and was not impressed. They do not do the work themselves, they contract the work out to someone else. I did not want that. I wanted to know who was doing the work on my house. These representatives were just the sales people selling the services and not doing the actual work and providing a lesser product. No thank you! I had seen Jeremys portfolio of work and was very impressed, his employees do the work, and after reading 26 positive reviews on Angies List, I was certain that Jeremy was the guy for me. And he did not disappoint. His customer service is exceptional. We have all had our experiences with contractors. They dont show up on time, you cannot reach them and its very frustrating. You call Jeremy, he answers. You text, he calls you right away. He checked in every day of my project. The windows and siding were delivered on time. We thought wed have an issue with the delivery as I have a very narrow driveway and the siding was to be placed on my lawn by a big machine which barely fit. Jeremy was ready to grab a few men and do it by hand if necessary. No hesitation, this is what they will do. The delivery was fine in the end. The work began on time throughout the entire project. The windows were done in one day I have 19 windows. The trim for the windows was just perfect. The attention to detail was amazing. The siding project began immediately following the windows; again, Vlad and Victor arrived on time and got so much accomplished each and every day. I was a bit freaked out when Jeremy called to tell me that the sill of the house (in the back) was destroyed by termites. However, he assured me it would be taken care of and it was, it was replaced. They see a problem, they fix it and keep going. Every detail is important. For example, the attic vent matches the color of the siding as does the frame surrounding the outside outlet and vent for my dryer. We got new gutters and downspouts and they put in a new roof on the small porch in the front. Basically, everything from the roof down is new and beautiful. The project is now complete and my home is stunning. Sensible Home Products will do all my future projects. They put pride in their work and their work is perfection. This isnt about making money, its about making the homeowner happy. I am ridiculously happy. Thank you Jeremy, Vlad and Victor.Jeanne B. in Wethersfield, CT
My husband and I were looking for someone to side our 1920 home, and we got three different contractors. Two of them were the same ol’ thing, but when Sensible Home Products’ owner, Jeremy, came, we knew that this was a good fit. Their workmanship was impeccable. They were neat, tidy, courteous, and on time. They were a pleasure to work with. We would definitely advise anybody to hire them for siding or building.Lynn H. in Torrington, CT
They were great to work with. Very Professional. On schedule & finished in the time promised. Jeremy & Andrew were excellent to work with & answered all of my questions. Very Clean.Marcia L. in New Hartford, CT
Jeremy and crew from Sensible Home Products are the best. Jeremy will work with you to compare other quotes and then do his best to meet or beat those quotes. The crew are amazing craftsmen who know how to side. Its like coming home to a brand new home every day. I would highly recommend you contact them for your siding projectsMike D. in South Windsor, CT
Hiring Jeremy from Sensible Home Products was one of the best choices my husband and I have made as home owners. To start he did an amazing job. The siding on our house was beyond old, and he encountered many problems during the process, and yet he was able to solve each problem way better than we could have asked for. It is like we have a brand new home now. Also his customer service is AMAZING. He and his crew are kind and go above and beyond to not only get the job done but keep you in the process. Despite how hopeless I felt about our house being fixed he proved that there is no job he cannot handle. Whenever I do anything else to my house, my husband and I are definitely only hire him from now on.Amanda S. in Berlin, CT
Fate is a funny thing. Sometimes there are tiny little signs out there that when youâ€™re caught up in your own life, you just donâ€™t take note of till later. Such is the case with hiring Jeremy and Sensible Home Products. After my husband passed away quite expectantly, I made a To Do list of everything he always wanted to repair on our home, but had no money to do it. Sometimes those repairs are put off when you have three kids, and day to day expenses consume your earnings. I knew that having the house sided and insulated was something my husband, Kent, would have definitely wanted to do. So with my To Do list in hand, I proceeded to start making repairs on our home. I knew nothing about siding, zero. So I went on Home Advisor and put my trust in their knowledge of expert contractors and contacted a few. Jeremy was the first to respond to my inquiry. However, I actually met with two other contractors almost within days. I think the enormity of the project and the sheer magnitude of losing my husband, deflated my excitement to get it done, and so I decided to put it off until I felt more mentally ready. A full year after, I was going through my phone, and Jeremyâ€™s year old text popped up. It occurred to me that I had never met with him, and recalled that he had been eager to look at the house and provide his suggestions. So, I called him and set up an appointment. Funny thing about fate is, that he had remembered me too. He knew that this project was going to be a tribute of sorts to renovations and repairs that my husband had never got to do. I appreciated that he also, was thinking in those terms. Our home had the original wooden shakes on it, painted three times over. I donâ€™t believe our home had any insulation, this was a house that was literally thrown up in the 50â€™s as a starter home, in a sub division. There was extensive rot throughout the structure and the windows that they were going to replace had been poorly put in by another contactor, more than a decade ago. Many years before, these windows had lost their seal, so they were a complete eyesore and did nothing to save me energy. Also on the To Do list, was new gutters and new doors. I knew that this was going to be a massive project. However, Jeremyâ€™s team, which included the meticulous skills of Andrew and Dave, showed up every day and worked tirelessly repairing rotten wood, insulating and making sure that the house was structurally ready, before installing the siding. Knowing that the structure of the home was now sound, was comforting. So when it came time to do the aesthetic portion of the home, I put my faith in Jeremyâ€™s color suggestions and held my breath. I consider that I have a great eye for color and texture, and love to decorate. So allowing someone else to sell me their vision of how the house could look, was a bit nerve wracking. However, when every single element; the doors, the shudders, the trim, the windows, were put all together, the result was nothing short of beautiful! This is what my husband and I had envisioned our home to look like upon our very first viewing of it with the realtor.The fact that my husband never got a chance to see it, makes the project bittersweet. However, I think that he would be beaming at the craftsmanship of the visual, and be comforted in knowing that the structure of the home was sound. A side note to this renovationâ€¦Jeremy picked out a stunning front door. It is a Craftsman 6 lite, Chestnut Mahogany with a dentil shelf. Itâ€™s the showpiece of the house. However, a week after it was installed, I noticed that the glass had developed fine, â€œscratches.â€ I called Jeremy and he said that it could have been a thermal fracture from the temperature change. He reassured me that he would make it right. I realize a claim at this point will take time, but I have faith that Jeremy is on it!Judy M. in Bristol, CT
