    Have used them in the past, good company, does great work and reasonable price. Had them check my roof for a leak. They found the damaged area and were able to match the original singles to replace the bad section. The Job was completed & area was clean before they left. Roof looks great & no leaks.

    Response from Company:

    Don, I am glad we could save you money and you didn't have to put on a whole new roof. I appreciate all the work you have given us over the years.

    The Risk Free team was a true pleasure to work with. The entire crew was professional, friendly, hard working, finished the job ahead of schedule, and the end product looks fantastic. Paul walked us through their entire process to ensure we were on the same page and kept me appraised throughout the process. The entire job was done at a reasonable price and it looks amazing. The honesty and professionalism of this company is hard to find and I would highly recommend their services.

    Risk Free is truly Risk Free. They asked for no money until the job is completely finished to your satisfaction. They did a fantastic job on the whole project. Completely trustworthy. I am still getting compliments on the changes that we made on the house. I intend to call them back for my next project.

    Response from Company:

    Vicki, It was a pleasure doing business with you. I look forward to assisting you with all of your future home improvement needs.

    I hired Risk-Free to take care of my gutters and gutter boards because they were rotted in several places. Paul interrupted that as just doing a bunch of patch work on the gutter boards. I asked why he didnâ  t fix the sections where the paint was peeling and he said because it wasnâ  t rotted. So he â  finishedâ  the job leaving my house in worse condition than it was. His ploy is to nickel and dime you for every task along the way. I said why didnâ  t the carpenter just scrape that paint that was peeling right next to the board he replaced and prime it while he was on the ladder right there. He said because he isnâ  t a painter. Thatâ  s a separate team? Meaning pay me more. I told him my trouble spot where rain always overflows and he said donâ  t worry we will take care of that with a defector. Guess what, he didnâ  t even install that. His customer service is by far the worst I have dealt with. No matter what I asked he had an excuse or reason NOT to meet the customer expectation. The work he did on the gutter boards was the reason for my rating. I can tell you for a fact that every corner they worked on was newly painted before they started. When they tore the old gutter boards off they damaged these corners by ripping the gutter boards away from the house trim. Instead of making it right he made excuses and he refused to take ANY accountability. This is anything but RISK-FREE! You are putting your house and your stress at risk if you trust Paul. He is smooth and friendly before the job but afterwards he refuses to take accountability and make it right. Paul came to my house several times as I have him on camera roaming around my house. My neighbors even called me about him in my yard when I wasnâ  t home. He knows the issues and my concerns but refuses to address them. I have him on video when it was drizzling out and Paul texted me to say that the water isnâ  t overflowing in the spot I wanted corrected. Of course, it wasnâ  t overflowing because it was drizzling. He isnâ  t even wet yet he wants me to believe the gutters are fine without a deflector. The very deflector he told me I needed. Again, this was yet ANOTHER example of Paul trying to avoid doing the job as he stated he would and making an excuse. Is this how you satisfy your customers? Iâ  m not even bringing up the scheduling issues. Trust me, avoid this company. What Paul should have done and refused: - Listen to the customer and ensure the customer that you will make it right because thatâ  s your brand RISK FREE. Thatâ  s your reputation. - Instead of making excuses, acknowledge that the job doesnâ  t look good and ask for a chance to make it right - Consider whether or not the people representing your brand are doing work at the level you expect. Consider employing contractors that can do carpentry and paint. (I assume that Paul subs out his work because he is at the mercy of their schedule and their willingness to correct their work otherwise it comes out of his pocket) - Above all, keep your word. What you say matters. When you tell the customer you will do something then do it. Paulâ  s response to not doing the deflector was that he didnâ  t charge me for it anyway. Was he planning to change his rate later? When you tell the customer that whatâ  s most important, is that the work is done with quality and lasts. Follow through on that word during and after the job, NOT just when you are trying to make the sale.

    Response from Company:

    Notice no other review resembles this one. I have waited months to respond because this review is so ridiculous. I have almost 2 months of correspondence in writing that disputes all of this review. I am happy to share with you, please ask me for it. Here is a taste of our conversation together. Customer: How much is just the gutter board with the gutters? 72 feet at 125 every 10 feet. Another $900 on top gutter price? Me:Are you asking if I only repair gutter boards to be able to install gutters? Him:Yes Me:Tomorrow I will discuss with my carpenter and discuss. Might even be less if I?m not holding him to my standards for my painting. Me:June 8 at 2:08 pm I will replace up to 60?gutter board and up to 32 sq feet of soffit with primed wood at my cost which is about $950. This will allow me to do quality gutter work. Him: Ok. Include that in the gutter price and I am confirming that?s what I want done asap. I would like to paint gutter board before it goes up too. How should we coordinate that?

    Response from Company:

    Thank you for the opportunity and your review.

    5.0 Dan M. Zionsville, IN

    They were easy to work with. The work was completed in less than a week after our agreement for them to do the work. Gutters , down spouts and leaf guards were installed on our ranch style home and garage in a total of 1 1/2 hours from arrival to departure. Very pleasant dealing with the owner and crew. We did not have to pay until the work was competed. The gutterslookgreat.

    Response from Company:

    Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. I appreciate you!
