What Our Clients Say… “They Repaired All Deficiencies
Our Customers Say...


TIP: Give contractors an incentive to put your property first on their priority list. Hold payment until all inspection report issues are corrected.

“Hi Glenn,
They repaired all the deficiencies you found, except a drywall nail-pop which will be repaired before my completion date & move-in. I will contact you again before my 1st warranty expires. Thank you again for the very thorough report…” ~ Sharon
