    Customer Testimonial

              I just wanted to let you know how pleased we were with the four men you sent out to do the work of fixing our water leak in the basement. They were such hard workers and never even sat down for a break to eat. They were very polite to us and knocked on our door each time they had a question. They cleaned up any messes and used appropriate language when talking and that meant a lot. They worked steady until they finished everything in one day and they were able to save a trip to come back here. It was so nice to see people working so hard and caring about doing things right. Please tell them we were very pleased with their work.

    Linda J. of Kasota, MN

    Customer Testimonial

              Our installation crew was amazing! They braved a steep hill, a blizzard, near gale force winds, and mud- lots of heavy frozen clay mud. They were all very courteous, and given the weather conditions, it was even more impressive. They were also very knowledgeable and conscientious throughout the whole project. They kept us informed along the way. Cleanup was beyond satisfactory. Nothing was left behind, not even a scrap of paper. They did a lovely job.
