I checked out a few contractors. Homescapes was not the least expensive; however, I found Roger Hankins professionalism and straight to the point attitude and knowledge extremely refreshing. His crew was very courteous. They knew their respective jobs, and did not stand around loitering. Left their work area clean and organized.

Quality Workmanship

Dear Roger,

This is a long overdue but much deserved THANK YOU! I meant to send you a note last spring when you finished siding our house because you did such an excellent job. As you know, I was very happy with how tidy the workers were during the process and Chip was thrilled with the complete and perfect coverage of the house. Your follow-through last week when Chip called about the loose facia was amazing. We certainly didn’t expect a workman to arrive the same day you got the message. Thanks for your qualility worksmanship, Roger. We’re happy to recommend you to anyone who will listen. Chip recently commented, “I just wish I had another house he could side!”

Much Thanks,
Julie C.

We chose Roger

Dear Hankins Homescapes Customers,

Roger Hankins was the project manager when my wife, Chris, and I needed to replace the shingles on our home in Okemos last year. We talked to several roofing companies (most of them identified at the Lansing homebuilders show in early 2005) and invited them to our house to look at the roof and prepare bids for us. After extensive discussions with these various roofers and after analyzing their bids, we chose Roger to manage our project and we have never regretted our decision for a minute. Roger was knowledgeable and resourceful in helping us examine the range of choices we faced on shingle styles and roofing procedures. Once we made our choices, with his assistance, and chose a starting date last August (2005), his roofing crew proved quick and efficient, and they did an excellent job on the installation itself; we’ve had zero problems in the six months since then (we’re writing this in March 2006). During the roofing process, we also discovered that part of our garage’s roof was rotten (due to bad rainwater management stemming from to the original design of our house’s gutter system) and Roger’s crew also did an excellent job in ripping out the rotten wood, rebuilding that section of the garage, and installing an improved gutter system. After the project was completed, his crew did an excellent job cleaning up the substantial amount of debris that is inevitably produced by these kinds of projects. Now that our shingles have been replaced, whenever our vinyl siding needs replacement (we think we can get at least a few more years out of it), Roger will be the first person and perhaps the only person we will contact. He does first-rate work and we recommend him highly.

Polite and Professional

Everyone was very polite and professional. It took a little longer than expected, but I was very satisfied when they were finished. Roger made sure everything was done according to his high standards. Now my roof is worry free for many years to come. Thank you!

Very thorough, efficient, and professional

Very thorough, efficient, professional. Roger Hankins got the job because he took the time to work with me to come up with an attic ventilation solution… Something none of the other contractors did. I felt I was dealing with people of good character. Returned promptly to fix a problem. Pricy, but maybe it’s true that you get what you pay for. The roof looks great and I’m counting on it to last a long time.

Considerably less cost

I appreciate your showing me how my water problem could be solved easier and at considerably less cost than I had anticipated. I also appreciate your taking on this small job and working in the roof replacement before Winter. With its vinyl siding and new roof, the tool shed looks better than it ever has. Thank you. Kind regards

We are happy with the roof work

We are happy with the roof work that was done to our house. Roger was very nice and helpful. There did seem to be a question of a little lack of communication between everyone though. We did not always know what was happening and when.We would refer Homescapes to others though, very good to do business with. This company will more than likely be doing our siding also.

Everything blends wonderfully

Thank you for the help you provided us in picking out a roof. Not only did Roger help with the roof color but helped me make a decision on the color to paint the house. Everything blends wonderfully!

Thank you again,

The windows look fantastic


Thank you so much for a beautiful job. The windows look fantastic and operate so easily and the installer was so neat and very, very pleasant. A pleasure to have him here.

We are very pleased

Dear Roger,

we are very pleased with the siding work you and your crew did on our house. We can really not only see, but also feel the difference, especially during these cold days of winter. We enjoyed working with you, giving us confidence with your professionalism and knowledge, that our vision could be realized for this major job. You also had always a good answer to our many questions. Your team was very professional: fast but careful, efficient while flexible, and always very courteous. Our house looks gorgeous and brand new thanks to you!
