    The salesman Luke Kimmie was so nice and professional. He came into home viewed my issues from what another contractor didn't do to stop the water from coming into my basement. He also pointed out I had asbestos tile flooring which I knew nothing about. Also advised me that contractor cut threw the tiles which are hazardous. He explained what was needed to be done to get my issue fixed. I truly appreciate at Luke and Woods Basement Company. Your repair men Aaron, Tyler and Brandon was amazing! OMG! Very nice Gus. They came in and done the work in one day. Where the other guys had 3-5 guys sometimes and took about 26 days to do and less mess and money. I'm furious with myself for not getting your company to do my work in the first place. Excellent company and employees you have working for you.

              I am not sure we expressed in the survey our appreciation for the work done by John Cunningham and Donald. They were very professional and friendly. They did an excellent job in installing the walls and floor in the basement. We can say the same for the crew who installed the sump system, as well as Luke Kimme.
