Overview

About Us

Bill Kesterke started Key Exteriors in 2003 for one reason: Integrity. Having worked in the business for a large national company with little control over the finished product, Bill was determined to start a company that focused on providing customers with the highest quality products, installation, and service after the sale in the industry. Bill’s goal was not to be the cheapest nor to be the most expensive, but simply to be the best value bar none. He also wanted the complete control over installations that only comes from ownership. You have Bill’s word that Key Exteriors will offer you only the best. If it’s not right, we’ll make it so, and you can count on that!

  • "I would NOT recommend Key Exteriors and it is difficult to separate the company from the product that was installed . Additionally, I have had to have nails at the edges of the roof cut off to avoid rust stains down the side of the house. Apparently this isn't something the salesman or the company considers important. Also, the additional work that was performed was substandard and is now being replaced . I guess the dumb woman wasn't supposed to notice."

  • "This was our 2nd time dealing with Key Exteriors. The first time, we had mixed reviews. The first salesman was unprofessional, late, pushy, and acted like a child when I didn't sign the papers immediately. They sent a second salesman and we had a much better experience. The installer did an amazing job but the communication with Key Exteriors is the worst. We decided to add a master suite to our home a couple years later and decided to give Key Exteriors another chance(big mistake). When the installers finally showed up, I told them how I'd like the siding installed and they told me they couldn't install it that way so they started siding the house their way(the easy way). I was completely unsatisfied and called the company. The installers were upset and started swearing like crazy. I have little kids in the home and they don't need to hear that sort of language. I asked them to stop working and please send the original crew back out and they did an amazing job, once more. Our latest issue is our bathroom vent pipe sticking out of the house and Key Exteriors will not come put a cover on it. Update: I spoke with Bill on the phone and he agreed to send someone out to cover the vent. The installer was out the same day and took care of it. I firmly believe in 2nd chances and allowing people to try again; sometimes you don't know what's going on in their lives that may make the experience bad. I hope Key Exteriors learns from these reviews, makes the necessary adjustments, and continues to grow and succeed. Even though my experiences were bad, I want nothing but the best for them."

  • "We had Key Exterior come out replace all 24 windows in our home. We worked with Bill the owner directly and he was very nice and knowledgeable. We had Shane and his brother Joe do all the installation and they were great to work with. I would definitely recommend having Key come give you an estimate."

  • "We had new siding installed. Very professional and very responsive. We are extremely satisfied and very proud of our new look. Thank you for great service!!!"

  • "Awesome job on our roof and Bill is a awesome salesman. Thank you so much for your help and great job thank you again"

    - V.S.

  • "Used them to repair damage to my house due to a storm in June 2020. They were very quick to respond and send someone out to look at the damage and get me a quote. After that, it was all down hill. The sales rep was very responsive in getting back with me about any questions until I signed the contract authorizing him to work with my insurance and saying that Key would do the work. After that, I could not even get the time of day from him. I was told my roof would get installed within two weeks about 5 times over the course of two months, originally told it would be on by the end of July, it took until the end of September for them to finally get out to do the install. Which would have been fine had they not kept telling me it would be two weeks for two months. During install, some of my downspouts were damaged. I notified them and they acknowledged that they would get them replaced which never happened. When it came to siding, which had to go through separate negotiations with insurance, it took multiple calls and e-mails trying to figure out what the holdup was before anyone there could tell me that the sales rep that was working with me left the company and my case was not passed on to anyone else. I even mentioned the name of the former sales rep during my calls and e-mails. It then took close to 6 months to get the siding put on (signed and ordered in October, still not installed as of the writing of this review). I cannot get ahold of them, they do not return messages (and it seems they have disconnected their voicemail). I would not recommend Key Exteriors to anybody and will actually recommend AGAINST them to anybody I know based on my experience with them. It has been nothing but a headache dealing with them. I feel like I have been scammed by this "reputable" company."

    - K.S.

  • "I was thoroughly impressed by the sales people when I decided to hire Key Exteriors for my new roof. While winter set in on us and caused some delays. My roof was completed in a timely fashion and after a few weeks of watching and waiting for rain and examining the new roof I feel confident in the construction. I would say the crew is very knowledgeable and experienced in roofing and did a fantastic job. My only complaint is the lack of communication after the sale and in scheduling the work. There is a gap that needs to be filled in this disconnect. Overall I would hire this company again."

    - J.J.

  • "Had a large project for Key, to include a new roof with an increased pitch, new gutters, new siding. Key is a growing business. Many older homes, much like mine have minor foundation damage, and are not square. They adapted very well to the homes age. The 2020/2021 winter delayed the project, but the end results look very nice. For a small business they are very busy, so if you are the overbearing demanding type, they may not be for you. I had a lot of old cables from a home that had bandages on top of bandages, so I got out to help them because I wanted to get some repairs in that were outside the scope of their job, removed old siding myself to reroute coax wiring into the attic to leave a professional look on the new siding they applied. I read many people complaining about their work, and if that's the case, do it yourself if you can do better. Saves on the complaining. So, this company does provide top quality materials and both roofing and siding installers knew their jobs. A lifetime warranty, transferable on the roof."

    - J.S.

  • "I would not hire these people to build me a dog house. Their knowledge was excellent. After starting the job a month late it all turned into the lies as far as getting things done. This was a $40,000 job."

    - W.B.

  • "They showed up 2 months early i would have liked to warn my neighbors. Now they had to pull a permit won’t be back for 5 day! Yet my roof is tore off and exposed to snow? I’m a contractor and communication would have gone a long way! Unexceptable! I have an 8x4 hole at the peak of my roof where there is not wood! Gaps everywhere in the attic! Crushed siding in spots! They left an inch hanging past trim everywhere! DO NOT DO BuSINESS with these people! They can’t even pick up a phone"

    - T.B.

  • "I contracted for doors and at time of discussion all measurements were taken by seller and his partner in October. I was called and informed that people needed to come again and take measurements. When asked why no reasonable answer received. Scheduled for 12/4 no show no call. I called company and was informed "they were delayed and running late". REALLY, What about a call to customer?? Also, after researching found out these doors could be installed in less time than Key quoted 18-24 weeks. REALLY?? Never again and I filed a complaint with BBB."

    - J.V.

  • "Overall, I was happy with the job Key Exteriors did on residing our house. The quality of the siding and soffit was excellent. There were some details that could have been better, primarily the caulking around the garage door and a few windows. The caulk beads could have been smoothed a little better. Also, the brand of siding underlayment was not what was promised on the original quote. When I pointed this out to the salesman (who left earlier this year), he did not have a good answer. The only issue I have is with customer service. We had two small areas of siding that needed some minor repair because they were bulging after installation. I've made numerous calls to schedule repairs. I've never received return calls except on two occasions to let me know someone was coming to take care of the repairs. The first time the person was a no-show and I never received a follow up call. The second time, the person missed a repair on the side of the house and it has still not been fixed. There are a lot of companies that do siding and customer service can make the difference. I suggest Key Exteriors make some changes in their service department so customers aren't making multiple calls and messages are followed up so we aren't left hanging. I am still waiting on a repair to the side of the house. I put off this review hoping these service issues would be resolved in a timely manner, but they have not."

    - S.M.

  • "Hate the door we ordered is nothing like the salesperson said it would be and then the door is so dark you can't even see the details to the stained glass spent a lot of money for a door that brings nothing but sadness. Also the trim outside does not even touch my brake there is a gap big enough to put a key remote in between the cracks very sad would not recommend it again. Called the very next day to talk to manager still have not talked to a manager and have had two appointments with them and no one has shown up hopefully they will tonight"

    - M.M.

  • "Bill is a wonderful, easy to relate to salesman! We felt very well taken care of. The installation professionals were very careful, and our door looks and works wonderfully! Key Exteriors is driven to make everything right! Our color choice, our glass and design choice were perfectly executed by the manufacturers. We couldn't be happier!"

    - G.G.

  • "My first job from Key Exteriors I had a front screen door install followed by storm windows and rain gutters. All professorially done, with quality parts and quick installation times. I am very pleased with all three jobs and would pick Key Exteriors again to perform any other remodel or upgrading. I did not give five stars simply due to the costs involved. Thanks Key Exteriors."
