“Raymond was awesome to deal with. Tricky job where they had to work in a showroom that was open to customers most of the time he was working. He was courteous, got the job done quickly, to a high level and to a tight timeframe. There were a few additions but Raymond was upfront about any extra costs. Very professional, highly recommend!”
