Frequently Asked Questions
To let you know exactly how much your project will cost and guarantee our price in writing for 30 days, we need to do the following:
Set up a specific time to meet with you.
We will then carefully measure every inch of the remodeling project, discuss the products and options available with you and have you examine a sample of the appropriate product.
You are not required to make a decision at that time.
We realize that your time is precious, and we find when we do not follow this procedure and "ballpark" an estimate without all decision makers present we end up frustrating people with a very inaccurate estimate. We can also save your valuable time with an in-home renovation estimate because we can answer all decision makers' questions at this initial meeting.
We do not offer senior "discounts", a special price if you "buy today", etc. because we consider those tactics sales gimmicks. That is, we would have to raise our "list price" to cover the "discount" we would be giving you.
Instead, we give you the best price we can--no matter your age or whether you clipped a coupon. Sometimes, our suppliers will offer sales or offers & we will pass those on to you if they are available at the time of your purchase. We just want to be fair and honest with people. Period.

Some companies will perform their own service work however, hiring a service technician is an expense many companies won't want to bother with. If the company uses subs, those subs are sometimes reluctant to spend more time on a previous job because they probably won't receive additional pay for their time. Consequently, they may not check on your service request until they get around to it — in other words, on their time table, not yours. Miller Custom Exteriors employees handle service requests as part of their regular job duties. Whether its 10 days or 10 years later, if you have any issues caused by manufacturers' or workmanship defect, we will take care of them, guaranteed.
