Review by in Hermantown, MN
We have a 20 year old home in Hermantown, MN that needed replacement of the original asphalt shingles. I contacted a couple metal roofing contractors and selected Agate Exteriors (The Metal Roofing Co., Cloquet, MN) because Jeff Collins impressed me with his knowledge of metal roofing products and his can-do approach to meeting our needs. Jeff and his crew did our project on schedule...including some major carpentry work, and our new roof looks great. I am a critical rater when it comes to evaluating the people who provide services for me and the above ratings reflect our complete satisfaction with the job the MRC did for us.

Jeff was great to work for and the fellow that installed the roof was a real professional. We liked working with the both of them.

Project: Hire a Handyman
Jeff at Agate was great to work with. He really knew his products. I've used Agate on multiple projects because I know the quality and workmanship I am getting. I have more projects coming soon and I will be calling Agate before anybody else. A+

Review by in Rush City, MN
This whole project was a nightmare! I was contacted by Agate Exteriors the same day I went on line to Home Advisors. I called them the next day and they came out 2 days later and gave me an estimate. The bid seemed reasonable so I called them and said I was ready to hire them and get started on the project. We completed the paperwork and signed the contract on July 7th.I was told there were 2 jobs ahead of me so my project would be completed in August. August came and went. I was told at the beginning of September that there were just a couple things they had to finish up and they would get to mine in September. September came and went. In the beginning of October I questioned was the project really going to happen as I hadn't been given a specific start date yet. they gave me a start date of October 13th. That week came and went. On Friday of that week they called and said everything is a Go and they will be there on Monday October 19th. I said I would be out of town that week and they said it would be done by the time I got home. That week came and went. On Friday of that week I received a text message saying everything is a Go and they will be there on Monday October 26th. No show! On Tuesday morning I got a phone call saying it was going to rain on Wednesday so they couldn't start that day. I told them if they weren't here on Thursday I wanted my money back so I could find someone who was actually going to do the job. They did show up and start the job on October 29th. It was supposed to be a 4 day job. It was a tear off of the old shingles and install metal roofing. Once the shingles were torn off it was determined that most of the plywood on one side had to be replaced. That should have taken 1 extra day. The job was completed on November 25th. I am not happy with the final result. The metal is very wavy and does not look like any of the metal roof jobs that I have ever seen. I would not recommend this contractor to anyone!
Response by The Metal Roof Company: We as a company did not do our best in regards to this customer's project, and the fault is ours. Most of the issue in regards to this project revolves around a piece of equipment that we had just purchased at this time, and that includes the initial delays. Since we were (are) serious about metal roofing we decided to purchase a machine to produce our own panels, to reduce our material costs to offer more competitively priced roofs. We purchased a used machine which we came to find out had some issues. These issues were not apparent until the material was installed. We threw away the first lot of materials and consulted with the manufacturer and trained machinists, we all thought it was fixed and rolled new panels. They were not. The customer was eager for the project to be over and wanted us to go. I offered him a discount and to replace the roof with new panels in the spring, I never heard back from him. We got rid of the machine and just purchased panels for a while, until we purchased a much better new machine in April of 2017 and it has been a great unit. That machine was our first major business trial that we had to endure and we learned a lot from it. We learned so much about the roll forming process and roof panel machines that we have been called in as an expert third party to settle disputes between other manufactures and their customers on material quality issues. We will never allow this to happen again, we will do whatever it takes to ensure our customers have top rated roofing systems.

Review by in Esko, MN
Project: New Windows
We contacted Agate Exteriors on a Monday afternoon, and by Tuesday afternoon, Jeff came to our house, measured the windows, showed us window samples, and gave us a free quote in a timely manner. Jeff and his crew were courteous of our home, and paid attention to the details that we cared about. The windows are in, look great, work great, and we couldn't be happier with our overall experience.

Review by in Springfield, MO
We contacted Jeff through the website on Friday of Memorial Day weekend. He came that Saturday to give us a bid! The bid was very reasonable. He started work later that week and stayed late to finish the job on Friday and Saturday. The quality of his work was extraordinary! There was literally no mess! They were fast, neat, personable, and did high quality work. We highly recommend them and would definitely hire them again!

Very professional in every way. Accurate and helpful estimates. Very reasonable pricing and excellent application of materials. They also went out of their way to facilitate needed repairs to surface. Very easy to communicate and work with. We are very pleased with results and would highly recommend their company to others.

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
