    Exceptional workmanship! Mark was so pleasant to work with during the planning and construction of our deck, and our crew’s work ethic was stellar. It’s as if they were working on their own homes. Any issues that arose were brought to our attention so that we were able to make decisions along with the crew, using their expertise to guide us. We already hired them for a second project, which also has our complete satisfaction. This team has changed our view regarding the hire of contractors. Don’t hesitate!

    HVE replaced our windows in our 1945 all block and stucco house. What a transformation! The team was great, communication was excellent, very friendly and cared that we were happy with their work. They immediately took care of any concerns we had and made sure that we were satisfied. Highly recommended!

    We are thrilled with the work done by HVE, Inc. and highly recommend them! Rick did an excellent job of listening to us and providing options that met our needs and budget. He communicated with us frequently throughout the project and checked in regularly to make sure things were going well. Scott was flexible and worked around our schedule. The team was punctual and extremely hard working. Just a top notch crew! The end product is exactly what we had envisioned. We will definitely have HVE, Inc. do more work for us in the future.

    I was so impressed with Rick and his crew. They re-sided our summer home in Michigan. The transformation was amazing. They arrived everyday on time and ready to work. Rick worked hard with his men and was always willing to answer my questions. The stone facade on the bottom portion made the house Pop. We have received so many compliments from friends and neighbors. It is not hard to understand the success of HVE because of the integrity and skill that was shown throughout our experience with them. We are so proud of our summer home. In life we need to make a lot of good decisions , and we sure made one when we chose Rick and his men at HVE. THANKS! Shirley and Bob

    The crew just left and I couldn’t wait any longer to rave about them! Rick, Scott, Gabe, Josh, Jordan, Jake, Bobby, Kevin, Mark, Primo, and Miguel went above and beyond in every way! I could go on and on! I watched the process and asked questions and they didn’t miss a beat with answers and welcoming me to check out the progress!! Super friendly! Super hard working! Great attention to detail! I’m so relieved to have found them. They rocked this. HVE is now my go to!

    Working with HVE, Inc. was a wonderful experience! From the beginning they were focused on giving us just what we wanted and they delivered. Their work force was always on time, worked so hard and had the skills that it took to make our new deck far above what we even imagined. I would recommend HVE, Inc. to anyone who wants quality work and amazing customer service. Rick and Patty Hall and their Crew are top notch!!

  8. Thank you HVE team for the awesome up-graded renovations you did on my home. The new windows look bright and beautiful, as well as the new shutters. The new porch railing looks awesome. And my deck is outstanding. When they replaced my over-hang soffit they found a huge “wasp” nest inside and went above and beyond to completely remove it for me. They are friendly, professional, and clean up their work areas after each day. They ensure the job is done right and to my satisfaction. THIS TEAM IS 5-STAR!

    I would highly recommend them.

    • Thank You Susan for the kind compliments. We appreciate you, your home and your thoughts. We will be here in the future for any of your exterior home improvements.
      Thank you for the opportunity to help you and your home.

  9. Rick, Julie and I want to thank you for the wonderful job on our home! New roof and siding have been completed and we thrilled with the way it looks. We appreciated the ongoing communication between the signing of the contract and project completion. Your crews were professional and really cared about the quality of work. They were sensitive to our schedules and cleaned up the work areas every night. They did what they could to help as I worked on a parallel project. We would not hesitate to recommend you to friends and neighbors. Thanks again!

  10. Excerpt from an email we received from two people talking about our work. The subject was: “Pretty House”.

    Hi Robyn,
    I’m a neighbor…and I’ve been admiring your house, specifically the gable details you installed! If you don’t mind me asking where did your purchase them? Install? Cost? We have some dead spots visually along our roof line and think if we did something similar it’d give our house more curb appeal. Thank you!

    Hi Val,

    Thank you for your feedback! Yeah, it’s a challenge trying to update older homes but it can be done 🙂 We used Rick Hall at HVE Exteriors. He was AWESOME. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to do any exterior work. He did our siding, wrapped aluminum around wood, roof vents, gables, etc. I don’t remember specifically what the gables alone cost as it was all just on one bill. I’d suggest giving him a call and I’m sure he’ll stop out when he’s in the area to talk with you more. He has a lot of good ideas and can give you suggestions too.

    Here’s his website:

    Please let me know if you need anything else.


    (Thank you Robyn for the referral!)

  11. Rick and Crew,

    Thank you for the beautiful siding and window job! It looks awesome!

    It was a pleasure meeting all your crew, and having them work on our home.

    They were so courteous! And such hard workers…even thru that awful weather we had!

    Molly misses you all! And especially Tim!

    Thanks for everything!

    Steve and Becky

  12. Dear Rick,

    HVE did an absolutely magnificent job on renovating our deck! Tim, the foreman, and the rest of the crew worked diligently through some rough weather to make sure everything was perfect and on-time. They were meticulous in their installation, corrected unexpected issues with the prior deck on the fly, and worked hard all day to create a gorgeous deck!

    This is a first class, maintenance free, quality deck that we will enjoy forever.

    Thanks again,
    Mari and Rick Wielopolski

  13. Dear Rick,

    You have exceeded our expectations. This job was an important step in transforming our forty-year old T-111 sided home to a neighborhood show piece. We decided on Hardie Board siding because of the product integrity. Fox Brothers of Portage recommended HVE as trained installers of the product. We did not know exactly what to expect seeing that it is difficult to find honest contractors that cater to details and have exceptional work ethics.

    After visiting Fox Brothers to pick out the colors, Mike Elliott of HVE came to explain the options and process for installing the siding. We were impressed with his knowledge of not only the product, but also of the installation demands. Mike was very helpful in guiding us through the choices and options. He explained the HVE principles regarding work quality and project integrity. Mike was promptly available via phone or email when questions came up around our preparation of the project. He was very accommodating when we needed to move the start date due to Bruce being out of town on the original start date. Mike was also able to readily provide advice on outside electrical lights and socket installation prior to the installation.

    The siding project included some very detailed customization applications of the siding over brick and around a large deck at the back of the house. We appreciated Mike”s advice on how to tackle these details.

    We were extremely impressed with the HVE crew that arrived to start the project. Tim, the jobsite foreman, Mike and Rick (company owner), along with the rest of the crew (Bob, Miguel and Premo) inspected the job with Bruce to ensure they had a good understanding of what needed to be done. The crew was on-site fourteen days to complete the work; always checking with Bruce when clarification was needed on the installation. When needed, additional crew were brought in to assist, including Mike Elliott. This explained why Mike knew so much about the installation process; he is an experienced installer. We were impressed with the precise schedules the crew kept each day regarding arrival, clean up and limited breaks. It was clear from the dedication to details and lack of wasting time during the installation that this crew worked together well and knew what the were doing.

    As the project progressed, we were impressed with the attention to details and quality of the work that was being performed. Getting the job done right even extended to the team tearing out and re-installing siding to make sure trim looked right. This was done independent of our input about the appearance. We appreciated the fact that the team would make installation decisions based upon two principles: installation integrity to keep the weather out, and providing the best appearance. The crew was accommodating at all times if there were special needs to provide a sensible solution to both product integrity and appearance.

    Finally, we need to say that the professionalism, work ethic and the pride the crew showed in completing their work tasks exceeded our expectations. The work site was cleaned up each day and building waste was well contained. The project turned out extremely well. HVE was asked to return in the spring to compete an additional installation of the same product on our small barn as well so it matches the house.

    There is no doubt we would recommend HVE for any exterior installation project. Based on our experience, we doubt there is a better exterior contracting company in our area. Anyone interested in having HVE perform exterior work is welcome to visit us to see their work detail.

    Thank you,
    Bruce and Rae Ann Graves

  14. From the first time we met Rick Hall we felt he was the one for our home. He is true to his word and has made our dream come true.

    The crew was exceptional and very courteous and kind. Upmost, very good with their skills.

    Our whole experience with Hall Vanhaitsma Exteriors was quality and professional. Thank you Rick Hall and crew, it was a pleasure getting to know all of you.

    Great People.

  15. Dear Rick:

    Please accept this belated but deeply sincere THANK YOU for the WONDERFUL work that you and your team did for me back in November and December.

    Every aspect of your work, from the meeting to assess the situation with my windows and provide a quote through our follow-up meeting after the work was complete, was professional in every way. You always had time to answer questions and explain products and procedures. Both you and your crew were respectful of me and of my property. You arrived when expected
    and did everything that you said you would.

    I am extremely pleased with my new windows and really appreciated their greater efficiency and function this past winter. I am also really grateful that you were able to complete the installation before winter set in for good. In short, Great installation and Great product!

    So, again, THANK YOU for doing outstanding work with an extremely high level of quality and professionalism!

  16. Dear Rick,

    Thank you so much for the wonderful job you did to upgrade our home on the lake! The siding and window trim are beautiful and the doors you recommended are the perfect choice to protect us from extreme weather.

    The team did an absolutely first class quality job, on time and cost effectively. It”s like having a new home and we have received many compliments already!

    We”re happy to be a reference for any of your future customers.

    Best Regards,
    Rick & Mari Wielopolski
