    By Brian T.
    Rochester, IL

    Your installation crew of Mason Sykes, Donald Adams, Josh Merrill (and a couple others that were there off and on) were amazing! They worked so fast I couldn't believe it. Not only were they quick, they tarped off portions of rooms and furniture to keep the dust off it, not to mention putting up a tarp at the basement door so dust didn't come upstairs. The cleanup was spot on as well! These guys led by Mason knew their stuff and when a problem came up on the design, they had a work around figured out in no time! I couldn't have asked or picked a better crew if I had hand selected them all myself. The finished product looks great!

    Customer Testimonial

              I just wanted to let you know that I could not have received better service and better crew than I received yesterday! The crew went above and beyond and even further than that if that was even possible. The thing that most impressed me about the project and my experience with the company was the fact that the crew noticed that I had multiple tubs of Halloween decorations that needed to be taken downstairs. Mason asked me if he and his crew could lend a hand in taking these items downstairs. I politely declined and said thank you. I noticed when I turned around to tell Mason thank you for his services he was already carrying all the tubs downstairs to the storage area, then returning to make sure every rug was placed just as he found them. I was so impressed. I have never seen that or even heard of that from any type of business, and I just want to thank you!

    Customer Testimonial

              Woods was right, the one section of the front of the house needed to be fixed like they had done to the rear of the house too several years ago. They told me to watch the concrete cracks and the one front corner started to settle the basement floor went with it like it had done across the entire back of my home. Your guys are very hard working and even though the ground was muddy they put it back and racked the yard so that you could hardly tell they were here digging around the foundation.
