Our Vision. Our Goal. Our Mission.


Our vision here at The Third Estimate is to guide local homeowners in the best direction for their specific exterior home improvement needs and wants.


Our goal is to provide exceptional service by employing a helpful, hardworking, and friendly staff, as well as maintaining valuable long-lasting relationships with all of our customers, who we consider part of our family.

Our mission is to provide comparable, if not the same, products and materials as our competitors for more affordable prices, in hopes to enable all homeowners the opportunity to improve their home.

“Selecting the right contractor to work on the exterior of your home is an overwhelming endeavor. There are so many things to consider, such as company reputation, product quality, design ideas, timing of installation and value. We have built the foundation of our company based on the words of family and community. It’s enforced every day in how we treat our customers with our non-pressure approach, design capabilities, value and project execution is what has set us apart from our competitors for over 26 years.
