Client Feedback

Good morning Charlie. Ann says the condo looks great. I would like to thank you and your contractors for the repairs that were made. Ann and I appreciate the time and effort that was made by you and your team in resolving the leak in our unit. The fact that you cleaned the condo and arranged the furniture meant a lot to both of us. I would have called you, but I know you are busy and are preparing to go on vacation. It has been our pleasure to do business with you and Socks Construction. Safe travels to you and yours.
