    5.0 David R. Santa Rosa, CA

    Howard Lane is a very conscientious business owner. He is meticulous in his work and lets you know how the project is going throughout. Just what you need in a contractor.

    Response from Company:

    Thank You Dave! It was fun making your house look the nicest and newest on the block! Howard.

    5.0 Harry B. Santa Rosa, CA

    Response from Company:

    Response from Company:

    Thanks for taking the time to give your ratings Nila, a fun project to waterproof and reside, tearing off the old redwood 9" exposure siding and installing the 1/2" OSB sheathing to give shear strength and flat surface to install James Hardie 9" exposure, pre-primed product. Great to meet you guys!

    5.0 John G. Santa Rosa, CA

    I was so fortunate to find Howard. My home needed a complete siding replacement and I decided to use fiber cement siding in hopes of only having to do this project once in my lifetime. Howards bid came in far lower than the big contracting companies. If it were not for him, I would not have been able to afford to do this project. Howard is a real pro with tons of experience and does all the work himself. He has an eye for detail and his craftsmanship is phenomenal. A man of true character. I would strongly recommend Lane Home Improvement for your siding project.

    Response from Company:

    Thank you, John, for your kind review! It was a pleasure working for you and making your home stand out among the others, you and I can together be proud of it. Howard

    5.0 Sherry L. Windsor, CA

    Working with Howard gave us confidence the work would be done right. He made sure we were pleased with all aspects in completion of the projects. We highly recommend him & his expertise. Thank you, Sherry

    Response from Company:

    Thank you for the kind review! I do want to add though that this job turned out to be Repair T-111 siding where it was dry-rotted, roof tear-off and re-roof with 40 year roof, new gutters and downspouts, install one cut-in octagonal window, and paint whole house. It was a pleasure, Howard Lane, Lane Home Improvement

    5.0 Mark S. Petaluma, CA

    Howard did a great job! He was very thoughtful, professional and listened to my concerns. The quality of his work is excellent even if it required more effort than he thought. The work was done quickly but not rushed. Great attention to details. I highly recommend Lane Home Improvement!

    Response from Company:

    Thank you Mark for the kind review! It was a Joy to up grade your siding! Howard

    4.0 Mike D. Healdsburg, CA

    Knowledgeable and professional. Found the root problem and repaired it efficiently.

    5.0 Candice W. Santa Rosa, CA

    The work is not yet done i only just met him yesterday but our visit was so helpful. Howard was very intuitive to my needs and concerns. I felt him to be very honest and forth coming when it came to all my long list of questions. I needed the skirting replaced on the older mobile we just bought. He was very professional ,, with creative ideas. His estimate was better than the others I had received and along with another great pro I hired for windows he is going to help make our older mobile home from a pigs ear to a silk purse. We just bought the place and it turned into a money pit. The house i remodeled was nothing compared to the problems with dealing with a mobile home. Yet Howard set my mind and ease and along with The great contractor i hired, Chris Richeson off Home Advisor who had to deal with some real issues that a older mobile home evidently has, it is going to be a place we can be happy in.

    Response from Company:

    Thank you Candice, my goal is to post before and after photos so everybody can see this awesome transformation from a pigs ear to a silk purse, I'm looking forward to it! Job complete, Candice is so happy!

    Response from Company:

    Thank you for who ever gave this review, many of my siding customers over the years have used me from time to time for other tasks including handman stuff at times. You might notice too the gap in reviews, basically, I'm an old customer who has come back to use the service once again of Home Advisor. Howard Lane, owner

    5.0 Brian H. Novato, CA

    Howard does very detailed, high-quality work. He is also very honest. He found that some of the work that was quoted didn't need to be done after all and credited our total cost accordingly. The job looked beautiful when it was done.
