Our experience with David Damon and First Rate Siding was excellent and the work was very professionally executed. We had a number of projects which included siding, modifying the structure of a porch, painting, gutters and coordinating with other contracted work. David spent a great deal of time helping us with planning, coordinating jobs, reviewing options, picking colors and all the numerous aspects of each project. His attention to detail is unsurpassed. He critically inspects every phase of the project as it is being performed and insists on the highest of standards for his work. We have no hesitation in recommending First Rate for your serious consideration.

I was going through Kudzu today looking for something else and ran across First Rate and remembered the great work they did for me 6 years ago. I bought a home with defective siding and I had 58 custom windows that needed replacing. When I saw them listed on Kudzu I thought I owe them a review as my siding and windows look the same as they did 6 years ago. They do great work at a reasonable price. I kept getting a rattle in my living room which I thought was one of the new windows First had just installed. Turned out it was an issue with a can light in my ceiling (nothing to do with the window). However, I thought it was the window and David has his crew came out 3 times to check it, he even brought out the regional representative for the window manufacturer to check the window in question.........Sorry David. I feel bad because no one could find an issue with it and he was going to replace it for me at no cost just to make me happy. Now that's service and standing behind your work!! These guys have been in business in Atlanta for a long time (which I like). The referral came from a realtor who had worked with on many jobs. If you want to work with an honest company that does quality work and more importantly stands behind it; call David at First Rate. Their name says it all and you won't be disappointed.

The company and its owner, David Damon, were impressive from the beginning. David is very attentive to his clients and bent over backward to make sure that we saw colors we liked on lengths of Hardiplank instead of just on a paint chip. David made sure that we were happy with each and every item as the work progressed. He is a certified James Hardie contractor and was the forth such contractor from which we'd gotten quotes. David handily beat everyone's quotes. We've always heard that you shouldn't select the low bidder, but after looking at his work and reading reviews from other satisfied customers, we knew that he was the right choice. His various crews—siding, painting, and gutter installation—are all "first rate" and, like David, will do anything to make sure that you're happy. I've already recommended him to several other people and will continue to do so.

Worked with David Damon on residing our contemporary cedar house. Of all of the siding companies that I called, David was the only one who stepped back and thought about the architecture of the house and provided suggestions on how HardiPlank could complement the house. We spoke at length about every aspect of the work and David let me know what to expect at each stage. The work lasted a little more than 6 weeks and his crews worked flawlessly around the weather, correcting water damage issues, and even a paint color change. There isn't much more needed for the exterior house, but when the time comes for a new roof, or we move to a new home that needs attention; David will be the first one I call.

Great people, quick response and spent a lot a time diagnosing problem. Unfortunately, the prior roofer installed bay window roof improperly. David's crew showed me the problem. Because of my limited funds, I need to wait to have new roof. They went out of their way to try to help, and thankful to them. I will use their services in the future. Very highly recommended !!!

This was a unique project and First Rate took the time to get it right. They were a pleasure to work with, always did what they said they would do, plus more. Highly recommended.

I contracted with First Rate for a complete exterior replacement for my older colonial style 2 story. They replaced the roof, siding (w/ hardieplank), windows throughout, entrance door, added a new small porch roof and completed the job w/ exterior paint. The work was completed on time and each crew was well directed and hard working. There were no problems encountered at all. The planning, estimating and execution showed their experience and dedication to a job well done. I would highly recommend First Rate for any of your remodeling needs.

I have been renovating my house over the past couple of years and I hired First Rate Siding to replace my aluminum siding with Hardiplank. I also had them rebuild my front porch and install gutters. David was friendly and incredibly helpful throughout the process. He also spent lots of time with me going over different options and picking out paint colors. Throughout the process the jobsite was kept clean and orderly. Like other reviewers on here have mentioned, First Rate offers high quality work at a reasonable price.

David and crew replaced our wood siding with Hardi plank, replaced soffits, fascia, and shutters, put in some new windows, and painted our brick house and decks. They did an outstanding job on everything. David is great to work with - he communicates well, is respectful, responsive, and thorough, and he gives good advice about styles, colors, etc. Months later, when my employer asked me to find someone to replace the roof on a property, I didn't hesitate to call First Rate, and again he and his crew did a great job.

We hired David Damon and company to replace the siding on our home with Hardiplank. They did an excellent job! I obtained many, many estimates and felt that David was the perfect combination of a reasonable price with a high level of expertise. He was very friendly and extremely easy to deal with. The completed job was exactly the price he estimated and the quality of the work was excellent. I would highly recommend First rate Siding.
