Carlson met and exceeded our expectations. The office personnel were friendly, and extremely accommodating while helping us choose our roofing materials--which isn't an easy task with so many choices available. But the real surprise was how mannerly and neat the crew of installers were. When they left, there was not one sign they'd been here--no shingle, paper or nail in the yard. They respected our patio, trees and bushes, as well as the outdoor furniture. It just couldn't have gone better.


Had a leak on the side of our home that was affecting our kitchen and an upstairs bedroom. Carlson Exteriors did an outstanding job of getting to the bottom of the problem and getting it fixed quickly and properly. From my first call, to the job being completed--everything was professional and done in a timely manner. I will definitely use them again for any future projects. Thank you!


Great experience! Very responsive, quick repairs even though our job was relatively minor, we were treated as though our project mattered. Nick was very professional, low pressure and very helpful. We happily took advantage of having the pros on site and added an additional small job on top of storm repairs (that another company that fixed our roof seemed less than interested in completing). Hopefully we don't need Carlson's services again for a long time, but if we do, they'll be my first call!


Carlson Exteriors did excellent work on our roof! I called them very concerned with a leak in our roof and they contacted me promptly, showed up asap to take a look and quickly set my mind at ease. The work was also done in a prompt and professional manner.

I'd like to add that if you are woman, this is a female friendly company. I was not spoken down to and was included in the conversation even when my husband was in the room. I was paying, and it should be so anyway, but as you'll all know, it isn't always the case.


Carlson Exteriors completed a number of projects for us after we had storm damage. They installed a new roof, gutters, siding, garage door, exterior and storm doors. They were excellent to work with. They came out quickly to inspect the damage and did a great job working with our insurance company to make sure the job got done on fast and on budget. They were always available to answer questions or concerns. The workers were very professional and definitely knew what they were doing. I would highly recommend Carlson Exteriors for any home projects.


Carlson Exteriors did an excellent job on our new roof, sun tubes, metal fascia and pillars. From the initial meeting with Nick, office support from Lora and project team lead Dave, the entire process was very professional and communication was excellent. Love those sun tubes!


Carlson Exterior did a wonderful job replacing our garage doors and fixing some trim damage. I would highly recommend them and wished I would have used them for some home exterior projects we had done in the past. They were prompt and professional and I am so pleased with the final result.


We experienced heavy hail damage earlier this year so we reached out to our builder Hoffman Ochs for a recommendation for roofing and siding. Hoffman Ochs highly recommended Carlson Exteriors for the job. Carlson Exteriors got us on the calendar and knocked this job out of the park. All of the Carlson team was very professional, polite and dressed very well with company shirts. The roofing job took 3 days and the siding 1 day. Cleaned up extremely well and now the house looks brand new but is really 9 years old now. Awesome job Carlson Exteriors. I highly recommend them for any job you may need for your house. Thank you again.


We worked with Carlson for the first time this past July based on the recommendation of a friend. We had some roof and gutter damage from a recent storm. Their customer service was outstanding. They were quick to meet us on site, provide a quote and they were actually able to complete the job a week ahead of schedule. Great to work with, would recommend them to anyone.


Top notch company! We needed a new roof and siding repairs from hail damage and had a great experience with Carlson Exteriors, Inc. They do what they say they are going to do when they say and with fantastic customer service. If you are looking for any exterior work on your home do not hesitate to call Carlson Exteriors.


Carlson Exteriors fixed a ceiling leak for us. They were on time for the estimate and the work itself. When they were finished no mess was left behind. Would recommend them.


Carlson recently replaced our roof, two skylights, and some old wood siding on a dormer. Our house looks incredible! They are an outstanding business with a quality team. The team of guys at our house were hardworking, respectful, and left everything spotless. Nick made the whole process so easy from start to finish. Carlson has my highest recommendation for anyone in need of exterior work!


We needed to have our shutters replaced and I was worried that it was going to be a hassle. I was wrong! From the first phone call to the after-service follow-up, everything was perfect. I really, really appreciate the timeliness, the respectful people, and the quality job. We will definitely be using Carlson Exteriors for future projects.

Carlson Exteriors completed my reroof after we had hail damage. They did excellent work, as I expected, but where they really shined was with their professionalism and communication. Not only did their project manager, Nick, always respond quickly, their crew was also very good at letting us know what was taking place and when. I will use them again and I recommend them to others as well.


We had a leak develop in a second story bedroom. It appeared to be a problem with a leak around our chimney. We contacted several contractors/remodelers for bids. Some were reluctant to give written bids and others just never showed up to give a bid. Carlson Exteriors did show and provided a written bid with the caveat that there could be some hidden water damage not covered by the bid. The bid seemed very reasonable, and we gave them the go ahead. They scheduled the work and it was obvious they did a complete and professional job. There was hidden damage, but we were surprised and pleased when the cost of the total job was well within the price we expected to pay. Carlson has a professional team that is dedicated to quality work, and we will use them again!


Pole Barn Gutters - Needed gutters on a new pole barn. They were fast to respond and provide a bid and they completed the job quickly. Gutters look good!

Carlson Exteriors came highly recommended by several neighbors and friends after I had a leak which required repair. From the first point of contact, Carlson was extremely responsive and quick to complete an estimate and send a team to repair the leak. Nick and his team did great work. They were very professional and everything was completed timely, despite the weather conditions.


Carlson did a great job with my roofing and siding. Everyone from project manager to all the workers were always friendly and helpful to talk to. When done, they did a thorough job of cleaning up everything from around the yard. Would gladly hire again.

Carlson Exteriors did a great job on our new roof! Nick was great to work with & was prompt and professional in answering all of our questions. The crew was very nice and did a great job. Several of my neighbors and friends have used them as well! Would highly recommend!


Carlson Exteriors are great! They replaced my failing gutters with beautiful looking new ones. The installation came out very professional, tight, clean, and crisp. No more leaking gutters. What impressed me were the hinged downspout extensions with Velcro snaps to keep up while mowing. They truly do care about their customer experience, about their product, and about you. Thank you, Carlson Exteriors!


Had some minor roof damage to the peeks of my residence.
The inspection and estimate were quick from the time I requested it. There were additional problems identified by the estimator but there was no pressure to resolve them.
The estimate was fair and in line with what I would expect and the technician was quick and professional. I will hire again


I’ve had very good experience working with Carlson’s on multiple jobs involving siding, roof and chimney repairs and I certainly would recommend them to anyone for their exterior repair needs. The project manager Brandon was a pleasure to work with from the estimating process through the final work. He is clear, honest, accurate and trustworthy. The masons and the roofer who worked on these jobs were excellant. I really can’t come up with anything I think they could have done better.


I had a great experience with Carlson’s. From them showing up when they said they would, completing the work as expected, on time, and within the estimate, and not trying to sell me things that I did not need, Carlson’s was professional and courteous. What I thought was going to be a high stress encounter ended up being very low stress and painless. The yard was clean from any work materials, and they closed my gates! This is an important detail for a dog owner. When I need work completed again, I will be a returning customer.

Our roof took damage during a recent storm. We contacted a different local company for the repair - they did the work, then very shortly the problem returned in the same place. Hoping for better results, we contacted Carlson.

Nick came out to provide an estimate. He was polite and professional, taking pictures of the damage on the roof to discuss it with us in detail. He provided multiple options and a solid recommendation - along with his reasons for that recommendation. His estimate was in line with others we received, and cheaper than some. Because he seemed the most informed about his profession, we went with Carlson.

We're very thankful that we did. The work was completed exactly on time, cleanly and professionally. When a huge storm rolled in the very next day - we breathed a sigh of relief when the repairs proved their worth: Not a drip, not a sign of damp.

When it comes time to replace our roof, or if there is ever new damage, we will definitely be calling Carlson again.


Great service, quick response! We had wind damage to the siding along our roof line. It was a small job so we were concerned about finding a contractor willing to do the work quickly. We were pleasantly surprised that Carlson Exteriors came out and looked at it the same day we called and the work was completed two days later. I would definitely recommend this company.


Carlson Exteriors was referred to us by two of our neighbors who needed roofing and siding repairs. We contracted with Carlson to repair/replace some aluminum trim on our home. They were extremely timely and professional in all phases of the job, including job site clean up. We would highly recommend Carlson Exteriors to anyone in need of exterior repairs.


We just had Carlson Exterior replace a skylight, repair a channel in our roof and some carpentry work. They were very punctual and did an excellent job including clean up which they did as they were doing the work. If you need exterior work done do yourself a favor and use Carlson.


Carlson was recommended to us by our general contractor who was working on an interior project. We contacted Carlson with regards to repairing some loose siding and fixing a roof leak. Caleb set up an appointment with me to give an estimate. We set up a date for 2-3 weeks into the future for the work to be completed.

Lora in the office kept in communication with me throughout the process. The workmen came when promised and did the work without me being present. Everything went as planned with no surprises. I sincerely appreciate that.

The work looks good and they cleaned up completely. We have not had inclement weather to test their workmanship, but everything appears fine at this time. Based upon my experience, I would have no problem in recommending them. If and when I have future needs, they will be the first I call.


We were very happy. Nick was thorough and quick with his estimate and Drew did a great job on installation.
We will definitely recommend your company and will call again when projects arise!

First, your staff should be commended every step along the way. From communication to interactions on site everything went above and beyond what I expected. The work that was completed looks so much better than the work one of your competitors completed down the street from me. I could tell that your employees take pride in their work and make your company look even better.

I honestly can't think of anything. Everything was very smooth, on time, when there was a delay I was notified. I wish I could give you a critique but to be honest this was the first thing I have paid to have completed on my house and don't have anything to compare it to.

I would recommend Carlson Exteriors. I placed dozens of calls to have this work completed and out of everyone you were 1 of 2 that actually called me back. Out of the 2 that called me back you were the only company that stayed in contact with me. Just for the communication alone I would choose Carlson Exteriors.


I recommend Carlson Exterior because they have done several jobs for me. The jobs were done as quick as it was possible, the customer service was great…of course the charges could always be lower…. but I really think the charges were very fair! Great people to work with!


I recommend Carlson Exterior for house repairs. They corrected the leaking around my gutter/siding in a timely manner. And, they fixed it the first attempt - something the previous company I hired couldn't fix with multiple tries.

I contacted Carlson to do a minor repair that I had been putting off. I did not want to deal with the hassle of playing phone tag with a company over a small job. However, when I contacted Carlson, I received a very prompt response! Someone came out in just a couple days to do the estimate, and scheduling was super easy! The estimate was also very reasonable. The repair has since been completed and I am very happy with the experience!! I will definitely contact Carlson again for any future needs.


Carlson Exteriors is an extremely professional company. Fast,fair, efficient! I will use no one but Carlson in the future!!

We recently had our front porch railing and columns replaced. This is our second exterior project completed by Carlson. (First project was our roof in 2017.) Just like our first project, we are extremely pleased with the end result. Nick was great to work with from a design and quoting perspective. It was a two-day project and after day one, my wife and I wanted to make a slight change. Ricky was able to make the change for us and still complete the work on time. He did an excellent job on the installation.


We hired Carlson Ext to re-roof our house. A 4 man crew showed up about 7:30a on a morning where the heat index was supposed to reach 105 degrees. They worked all day and didn't leave until dusk. By the time they left, the house had been completely stripped, papered, and new shingles down on one side. They used tarps around the house to catch debris that fell off the roof and threw everything directly into the dumpster they had delivered.

The crew came back the next morning around 7:30a again and was finished up by noon. They cleaned the gutters of debris and reinstalled the leaf guard. They also went around with a metal detector picking up any loose nails and pick-ed up any other debris before they left.

The new roof looks great - will hire them again if we need any other work done.


Just had Carlson Exteriors Inc replace my roof and gutters as well as perform minor repairs. It looks great! The crew, products, and workmanship are all high quality. The crew was professional and thorough to make sure the job was done right. Communication was clear and timely. I was kept updated on the time it would take to complete the job and provided daily updates. It's very telling as to the quality of the company when their employees speak highly of working for Carlson Exteriors! Highly recommend Carlson Exteriors - great peace of mind knowing the job is done right at a fair price!
