  • Your work crew went way above and beyond the call of duty. While they were waiting for the mirror guy to come and remove the mirror in the master bath, they helped me fix a couple of sprinkler leaks. I wish I had obtained your contact information a couple of months ago. I don't often offer, but I would be happy to serve as a reference for your company. All around I think your services were top notch.
