Not every homeowner who needs a roof, siding or replacement windows can write a check for the service. In fact, most clients of Renew Home Exteriors choose one of the company’s no-money-down options to pay for their project. That’s because the terms are so good.

“Many customers choose our zero-interest option because you pay no interest for up to two years,” explains company founder Steve Yoak, who along with his family has been remodeling homes for over a decade. “Others opt for the 15-year financing option. That allows you to expand the scope of your project to include more than one service.”

And well over 90% of homeowners who apply qualify for Renew’s financing are approved.

Quality Materials and Installation
The team at Renew are sticklers for quality. Not only do they carry some of America’s top brands, they also offer essential advice to help you make the best decision.

“Unless you’re flipping a piece of investment property, we recommend our PVC-reinforced siding with a thickness of .046 mil,” Steve says. “It won’t warp, bend, bow or sag like thinner siding. It’s perfect for Northeast Ohio’s harsh climate because it’s engineered to be wind- and storm-resistant. And it also comes with a lifetime warranty.”

Steve adds that siding thinner than .46 mil in some of today’s popular darker colors can literally melt in the sun. “You definitely want our PVC-backed siding if you’re going with a dark blue or gray,” he says.

And when it comes to windows, you should also expect quality. “The top brand we install is made right here in Ohio, and it comes with a lifetime warranty,” Steve says. “We usually recommend triple-pane windows because they’re better insulated and quieter. Even for homeowners who opt for double-pane, we encourage them to put triple-pane in the bedrooms. They reduce outside noises like dogs barking and cars driving by so you can enjoy a good night’s sleep.”

If it’s a new roof your need, Renew has you covered there, too, with brands like Owens corning, GAF, IKO, and even metal roofs. “It all depends on what your individual tastes and needs are,” Steve says. “Roofing technology has improved so much that many manufacturers now offer a 50-year warranty, but your roof has to be installed correctly.”

Renew Home Exteriors features siding in all of today’s popular colors—from trendy blues and grays to more traditional earth tones.

Professional Installation
Renew’s installers for all three products—roofing, siding and windows—are factory-trained and certified. The company does background checks, drug testing, and yearly re-certification. And new team members don’t work on your home until they’ve proven themselves elsewhere.

“Our sister company rehabs 80 homes a year and we have 120 properties under management,” Steve explains. “So not only do we get big discounts on materials because of our volume, we also train our installers on our own houses before we allow them to work on your house.”

Perhaps the best reason to choose Renew is the company’s low-pressure sales system and transparent, flat-rate pricing.

“Our industry is notorious for high-pressure salespeople holding you hostage in your kitchen,” Steve confesses. “We don’t do that. After taking measurements and talking with you about your needs, we’ll usually have an estimate in your hands within 45 minutes. And our estimate will often be 50-60% lower than our competitors’ estimates.”

Wait, what?

“Seriously. We lead with a fair and reasonable price up front,” Steve explains. “Other high-pressure sales companies lead with a highly inflated price and wait to see how you react. If the price is too high for you, they’ll ‘call their manager’ and suddenly produce a lower price. This can go on for hours. They intentionally make the process miserable in hopes you’ll go ahead and sign a contract because you don’t want to go through that process again with three more bidding companies. We avoid all that and give you the fair market price right up front.”

Renew’s low pricing is rooted in high-volume material discounts, but also in low overhead. “We share offices, warehouse space and administrative costs with our sister company,” Steve says. “And we don’t spend big dollars advertising on television. We treat your money like it’s our money.”
