This means that clients can expect that the company will work towards finding a mutually satisfactory resolution to any concerns. Total Home Exteriors, Inc. listens carefully to client concerns and sees them as an opportunity to learn from past mistakes and become more efficient as a company in the services offered and the support for those services.

"Mike Rimkus is not only my friend and employer he is a man of integrity. [continued below]....
..... He's very reliable, he remembers customer's names and shows appreciation. He is 100% dedicated to customer satisfaction and follow through. Most of all Mike Rimkus is an innovator who has completely changed the game for Denver roofers and contractors with his 'no money down until it's complete' mindset.” ~ Kurt - Production Manager @ Total Home Exteriors, Inc.

The information provided in this report below is based on comments made by Michael Rimkus during an onsite inspection held by a third party verification company with no biases toward Total Home Exteriors.

Total Home Exteriors is Ripoff Report Verified
Ripoff Report Verified™ .. part of Ripoff Report Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation & Customer Satisfaction Program.A program that benefits the consumer, assures them of complete satisfaction and confidence when doing business with a member business..

Total Home Exteriors was established in 1991 and offers an array of services which include storm damage restoration, siding installation, and widow replacement. Owner Michael Rimkus explained the original vision of the company, "my visions [have] always been having integrity, always do right, be as professional as I can be with my company, and hire the right people to surround me.”

In order to acquire leads Total Home Exteriors utilizes the services of call center. After major storms potential customer often contact them directly in order to inquire about their services. Mr. Rimkus continued with the typical sales process. Total Home Exteriors will meet with the potential client and perform a free full inspection of the property in question. After the inspection they work with insurance companies to get how much of the costs can be covered under insurance, "we'll sit down with them [the client] and go through exactly what insurance [can] paid for and then when they tell us 'ya, go ahead' we go through [our] products to get them familiar with what we do. Also, we don't require money down, and let them know that and once we come up with the price we go ahead and put them in production and get it done.”



During the onsite interview, Mr. Rimkus was asked to describe a situation where a client was not satisfied with the level of service they received, and how Total Home Exteriors dealt with the complaint. Mr. Rimkus went on to state, "we're not perfect, I mean things do happen. It's is our integrity that stands in place... you're going to have problems... but we definitely try to fix the problem." Mr. Rimkus went on to explain a specific incident where a homeowner was upset because some of his shingles were scuffed during a gutter installation. Mr. Rimkus personally addressed the issue by fixing the shingles, and the customer was both happy with his experience and willing to recommend them to interested parties. This is not a common complaint for Total Home Exteriors. Due to the fact that placing money down is not a requirement for Total Home Exteriors customers are generally satisfied with the product. Mr. Rimkus believes that this is an important aspect of their company, and it should be noted that Total Home Exteriors has yet to be paid for over 100 completed jobs. After a complaint is resolved within two weeks a certificate of completion is issued to insure the happiness of the customer.

When asked to comment on complaints posted on Ripoff Report's website Mr. Rimkus believes that the complaints were not written by actual customers but disgruntled past employees, "I was literally being attacked [as well as] my wife and my kids. If you looked on Ripoff Report's website you would see that." Mr. Rimkus went through great lengths in order to deal with the situation and went on to assure future customers of the quality both in his work and personal character. "it's really hard for me to be a crook when I don't require money down... it's really hard for me to be a crook when I'm out there helping people."

When asked what type of changes they have made to honor their commitment to make things right with the customer per the request of Ripoff Report, Mr. Rimkus stated, "I don't hire just anybody anymore. We are very selective with who's around me now, and they have to go through a long process." In regards to customer service Mr. Rimkus has reduced the size of his staff in order to ensure both quality work for his clients, "I had a hundred people working with me. I have maybe 20 people now we have no desire to be big just want to stay small and in and maintain my reputation.”

Total Home Exteriors is pleased to be a part of Ripoff Reports Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation and Customer Satisfaction Program. Mr. Rimkus hopes that future clients will see his dedication to his company through his integrity, "...this is the only choice that we really feel that we have to be part of the Advocacy Program.”

It is suggested that you physically see a copy of their South Carolina Specialty Contractors License and make sure they are bonded as well. All roofing contractors in South Carolina must be registered to perform work that costs more than $200. Contractors that are bonded are allowed to do work that costs over $5000 for an individual. You can check to see if a contractor’s license is valid by contacting the South Carolina Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation at 803-896-4701.

Itinerant Home Repair/Roofers – Better Business Bureaus across the country received complaints from consumers who answered a knock from a door to door salesman or itinerant worker who eventually failed to deliver on promises to fix their roof or conduct other work to the home. Complaints to BBB about roofing companies increased by roughly 40 percent in 2010, according to tentative estimates, due in part to one company that solicited door to door, American Shingle, which received nearly 1,000 complaints nationwide after going bankrupt and not providing new roofs to angry customers.

One way to prevent doing business with “storm chasers” is the check with the Better Business Bureau. You will learn if the contractor is a member in good standing, how long they have been in business, and other key facts about the contractor you are considering doing business with.

Total Home Exteriors , Mike Rimkus denver , Colorado

Mike Rimkus aka "the lying thief who stole his way to the top through deceptive practices that only a true CON ARTIST can do" I worked for this man for a short time and in that time I was convinced that I was going to be apart of something good only to find out that I was apart of something that was completely oposite of that. See this company is actually one of the worst companies to have do your roof and or to have you work for and the reason for this is because they actually believe their own lies.  PATHELOGICAL LIARS . (cognitive disonance) Or in definition

He is the guy that will go out of his way to screw you over and instead of feeling remorse and or guilty and apologizing and saying "I'm sorry, what can I do to fix this " He will justify his wrongdoing and then leave you high and dry , "Hey Mike , I talked to the adjuster and he even said that code for this roof is 90 lb felt so why are you putting 30 lb felt on ? Well you know that's true Frank but will the homeowner ever see the felt ? Uh, no Mike but isn't that wrong and won't that compensate the integrity of the roof  ? You ever heard the term out of sight out of mind ? Oh ok whatever u say Mike , whatever makes you happy , That's more like it Frank just do what I tell you and you will succeed

#1 Consumer Comment

I had a Great experience.

AUTHOR: Scott Berndt - ()

I had total home exteriors re shingle my home in October of 2013. I was hesitant at first after reading this complaint and some of the comments that followed it. I met with Michael Rimkus and told him of my concerns prior to committing to any specific contractor. He was referred to me by a good friend so I gave him a chance. When the crew showed up, there were a good deal of personnel that didn't speak English, but that can be found on nearly all of the roofers in this area. The foreman did act as the translator and never let the language barrier become an issue. 
I purposely waited nearly a year before I wrote this review. I wanted to wait and see if we got any rain and to see if it leaked. Needless to say, it rained more this year than it has in quite some time. I have not experienced even the smallest of leaks, nor any loose shingles.
In my opinion, Total Home Exteriors has been given a black eye by someone that is emotionally upset rather than by someone that has had an inferior roofing job. If I am in the need of a roofing contractor again, I will hire Total Home Exteriors without a second thought. If there is a problem with any of the work, I am confident they will make it right as soon as they are able to.
