Hi. We have a few areas of siding and trim on our house that have some rot and need replacing. Does anyone know of a good company that will actually show up to do this? We've had trouble getting folks to follow through. Not sure why!

Good luck in your search. I have the same issue. I have found a few but their estimates are double what the price should be and their references probably shouldn't be listed as they suggested the contractor performed less than stellar work. I can't get anyone to work on my house.

Demand for this sort of thing is high right now, so they're gouging people on small jobs.

I had Mother Hen Home Improvement do some small rot repair for me and did a great job.

Nelson Petteys is another good choice.
He's reliable and will do what he says he can do. Himself.
He's sort of semi-retired, but perfect for small wood rot jobs - can accurately assess replacement vs patching. Building maintenance background.
Navy vet too, so I give him bonus points :-)
Has an "A" rating at one of the semi-dubious rating lists.

I have never seen such a gung-ho crew. The owner was a Marine and they get it done, beautiful work too. They do stay pretty booked up, but all the good ones do.

This brings up a related tip that might help even if a bit obvious: try to find someone relatively nearby. A company that's based out of Holly Springs might be less gung-ho to drive to Youngsville just to give an estimate. If the contractor is based close to your place he will probably be more interested in your business.

Thanks for the replies and suggestions! We ended up going with Paul's Home Improvement. The team of two brothers worked hard, were neat, personable and polite, cleaned up at the end of each day - and they were quite good about diligently looking for additional REAL problems that needed repair. Paul advised us as needed of anything additional that was found and gave us an updated quote as needed. The work was done very well with a fair price for what was done. We will use them again.
