We’re still in shock. They did in one day what we thought would take at least three days. Although their work and professionalism was very impressive, the thing that we liked the best about them, is that you could tell that they are very decent and honorable. Very good folks. We would recommend them to anyone no matter the size of the job and will be using them again ourselves. You won’t be disappointed.”
