Please accept our thanks for a job well done.

We would like to extend our sincere appreciation for the work that your firm completed and for the professionalism and care that you took throughout the remediation process. Working with you and Kirk Vardy (insurance adjuster) was a pleasure and you both helped to make the best of a distressing situation after the fire. The coordination and management that you did on our behalf with the subcontractors that completed the work was very well managed. Please accept our thanks for a job well done.
