Throughout each phase of the remodeling process, Carolina Exteriors promises and is committed to setting clear, measurable expectations – and this starts from the beginning.
We strive to provide a comprehensive Design Plan within 72 hours of your initial Discovery Call / Meeting. This can vary depending on the size and scope of the project and also during peak times.
The time it takes to begin work varies on the season, weather and scope of work. Feel free to reach out to us directly for a free quote and time frame estimate!
A full roof installation typically takes 1-5 days, siding installation takes up to 2-3 weeks depending on the size of the project and window and door installations take 1-3 days. *Weather permitting!
No, not in most cases. We use a secure client portal and the most up to date technology to communicate with you throughout the project to include updates, photos, videos, etc. We do, however, ask that you attend and participate in a pre-construction meeting. The only exception to this is in the case of window and/or door installations. We treat your remodeling projects as if it were our own residence, keeping your property safe and clean. Large remodeling projects may require a debris trailer on your property in a pre-approved area. Our crews will clean up daily and we will do a final clean of the jobsite at the conclusion of the project.
Every customer is provided a user name and password providing them access to our secure client portal. You are able to manage your project, in real time, from start-to-finish from the portal or from the convenience from your smart phone / tablet. Your assigned Project Manager will also provide you with daily updates, pictures or text / email messages.
We track temperatures and weather patterns in your area and look for several days of clear, mild weather. If a flash storm appears, we use large tarps to protect your home.
A $175 Labor/Diagnostic/Trip Charge will apply on All NON-Warranty Calls. If we diagnose the issue you are reporting to NOT be related to our labor and work, there will be a fee for our diagnosis and solution. We will credit the diagnostic fee if you have the non-warranty repairs completed. We stand behind our work and are happy to come out and diagnose an issue, but if it is not related to our labor on the project, we have to charge for our time.
Yes! If your project requires a permit, we will submit applications and schedule/coordinate all inspections.

Our Design Consultants do their very best to capture all recommended repairs during the assessment and bidding phase. However, there are times where damage is concealed and not visible from the ground level. If additional work (i.e. change orders) is necessary, our Project Managers will discuss the repairs, what is required, any impact on schedule and a cost. Change Orders are easily tracked through our secure Client Portal for you to see and access as well.
Here at Carolina Exteriors, we use Sherwin Williams paints and stains. However, if you have a specific brand of paint you wish to use, simply discuss this with us at your Design Consultation. Our application methods are a combination of airless sprayer and brush.

No, we do not offer appraisals, ballpark estimates or pre-sale evaluations to assist in the buying process. We are always happy to meet with the legal property owner.
We currently do not have a Service Department and therefore have a $3500 job minimum. An initial diagnostic fee of $175 will be charged for small projects or repairs. We will then provide you a quote for the full scope of work and if you select Carolina Exteriors as your contractor, the diagnostic fee will be credited toward the cost of the work.
In the event of a warranty claim, please send an email to email@example.com with your description, photos, etc. Someone will be in touch within 48 hours.
