Every home is told that they are getting a special price if they agree to be a showcase home. They are way overpriced and will say anything to get you to sign. Don't give them the time of day! Add reply

Erie Construction installed siding. We refused their financing and paid cash. Our siding is warped and popping off the house. All the caulking is awful. Have had them return to fix every thing 3 times. After the last visit caulk was removed and left on the ground. No one ever came back. Phone calls are useless! No one in this company knows what is going on with their people. We are going to sue for our money back.
DO NOT DEAL WITH THESE PEOPLE! THE SALESMEN LIE AND WE DID NOT GET A "CREW" WE GOT ONE BOY! ALSO THEY HAVE PUT OUR LIFETIME GUARANTEE AT RISK. I AM CONTACTING THE MANUFACTURE OF THE SIDING NEXT.
Would NEVER hire this company!

TOLEDO, MICHIGAN -- After having our home sided by Erie construction, one of the air vent cover on the side of our home feel off, it's on the second story of our home. After several calls to Erie construction to fix it, I came home from work to find a replacement vent sitting on our deck with a handwritten note stating "i don't know how to fix this, here is a replacement vent" and signed by one of the employees. I have made several phone calls with no response! not to mention that our $197.00 monthly payment is actually 364.00!!! beware of this company!Add reply
VAN WERT, OHIO -- I have no complaints about the triple-paned windows that Erie Construction installed. However, their door-to-door sales tactics are pushy and dishonest. When first presented with the offer of installing 10 windows for $12,000, we said no. Then they came down to $10k. We still said no, so they offered to do seven windows for $7k, which we agreed to.
The main selling point that the salesman used was that they would keep minimum payments at $80 a month. He stressed this point and we signed the contract and gave them a deposit.
Unfortunately, you can't cancel their contract without paying a huge fee after the first three days (it's in the fine print). This wouldn't have been such a big deal, but when the bank sent us the information well after three days, the monthly payment was $102 with a 17% interest rate to boot.
The salesman said it was all the bank's determination after looking at our credit. So my question was, "Why did you stress the $80 monthly payment if you can't guarantee this?"
Now $22 more a month isn't a huge deal. But it's just how pushy and dishonest he was about the financial details. It's basically like he told me whatever I needed to hear just so I would sign on the dotted line. And once you do this, they merely have to wait three days before they've locked you into a binding agreement.
Do yourself a favor...contact local contractors and get estimates. Don't fall for Erie's spiel and empty financial promises!
GODFREY, ILLINOIS -- The guy came around with a deal for new windows. said they will even buy or old windows. I thought it strange the he never even got my phone number. but just figured he would get information the next day, since we had an appointment for o'clock. but I sat here all day waiting for him to show up. A phone call would have been nice, but that wasn't possible since he hadn't bothered to get a number. I would have called the company, but there wasn't any number on the paper he left either. I was hoping to get a price on gutters &a new entry door also. I just think it's not a good way to do business. but after reading some of the comments I should count myself lucky no one showed up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Add reply
My wife and I are shopping for a new roof. Erie Construction had placed an ad in our local paper and we gave them a call. Three appointments later and not one person has shown up, we told them no way for a fourth attempt!

Mary says that they have been in business for 40 years. Good luck with the next 4 days when you cannot even tell time!
Roughly 3 years ago, I got a quote from a very persistent Erie saleswoman. I still receive sales calls from them every other week, all year round. I've requested that they remove me from their mailing list at least 20 times and it does no good. Unless you're looking for a new best friend, don't bother sharing your phone number with them. 1 Replies - Latest reply on 01/19/2011Add reply
