This ended up being a long review! Tl:dr version = Highly recommended for quality work/materials and value.
We chose Conrad to replace our siding after receiving a total of five estimates for the project. Conrad's price came in roughly the middle of the five; however, their materials and warranty were equal to or better than the other options (Home Depot gave the highest at $2000 more than the next highest estimate and did not include some features [for example, fanfold from Conrad versus basic vapor wrap from HD]; Lowe's price was comparable but also with fewer features; lowest estimate had lower-quality materials).
Our first impression of Conrad upon meeting their project coordinator, Imad, was extremely positive. He was punctual (important to us as we often have very busy schedules!), professional, knowledgeable, thorough, and made sure to answer all of our questions before finishing up the initial visit for the estimate. He was also generally very prompt about returning emails. What impressed me the most (aside from Conrad's strong reviews online!) and ultimately was the final factor in choosing Conrad was Imad's willingness to look over a comparable estimate I sent him from a competitor - despite the possibility that we would not go with Conrad, Imad gave good advice on questions we should ask to ensure we were getting as good a deal as anticipated.
My one relatively minor criticism would be that I would have appreciated more consistent communication in the early stages of the project (scheduling, etc.). I certainly appreciate the challenges that go along with coordinating work crews and trying to estimate how long a project will take while also factoring in such things as weather delays, etc. We had been given a start date but didn't learn until I contacted Imad and Kevin that the date had been pushed back due to delays on other projects. Again, completely understand that these delays happen - just would have liked to have been made aware (at least by the expected morning of) that our date was going to be pushed back. Once our project was underway, I felt communication from Chris was very good - I want to emphasize that my overall experience, even with this hiccup, was a positive one.
It was great seeing the appearance of our house transform over the course of less than a week. I joked with one of the workmen that it now looks like a place people would want to live in on purpose! Before our project was even completed, I had already recommended Conrad to a friend - she ended up hiring them for her own project and was very satisfied with the results. The roof of our garage was recently damaged by a neighbor's tree following a storm, and we fully expect to hire Conrad to handle its replacement once the insurance comes through. I absolutely would be glad to hire Conrad again and am pleased to be able to unequivocally recommend them to anyone.
