    Customer Testimonial

              This afternoon my wife and I met with Joel K and Jim. We asked your company to look at a water problem we have been having. When they arrived (10 minutes before the appointment time) they were very cordial and professional during the time they gathered some background information. They went around the basement looking at the problem areas, moving around several items (stored patio furniture) to get a better view. They measured the basement looking for out of level conditions and overall, looked very closely for the cause of our problem. But they didn't stop there. We then went outside and they surveyed the grade, the fill around the building, the condition of the windows, the brick half wall, the siding, everything. Then they asked for a shovel and dug down next to the outside wall to see what the junction of the foundation and the brick looked like. There's more. Jim then drew several pictures depicting what the construction looked like so that he could explain what the problem might be. In the end, we all agreed that the problem is probably above the foundation. Possibly water leaking in around openings in the siding combined with the lack of weep holes in the brick and the grade being above the foundation/brick junction. You would think they had done enough to at that point, but again, there's more. They went on to recommend other individuals that we could call to check out the problem AND they said that they would do some research and give us a call. After about 30 minutes they called back and gave us more information that they got after calling back to your office. In all they spent over 1.5 hours with us. Unfortunately, we will not be able to do business since our problem is not related to the work that you do. But, be assured that I will be relating this story to anyone who is willing to listen. These two men were the ultimate professionals. They were genuinely concerned about our problem, their customer service skills are superior and tried their best to find a solution for us. You should be proud of the way they represented your company. If they are indicative of the rest of your employees, then you have built an excellent company. Thank you for your company's concern.

    Customer Testimonial

              Joel was not pushy and explained everything clearly and took time to answer our questions. This was by far the best experience we have had with any contractor coming out to our home. They finished on time, cleaned up better than I would have and never thought I could be so excited about a crawlspace.

    Customer Testimonial

              Joel was great and not pushy at all! Other companies would make appointments but then call and cancel. The crew was late but that was due to weather. He called and we thought he's cancel, but he said he would never cancel. The crew was very courteous and the cleanup was perfect.
