    Customer Testimonial

              I wanted to shout out to a couple of your team members that were amazing. On September 6 we had some concrete work done on our front porch/walkway. Iian Grooms and Fermin Bermuduc worked so hard in the 95 degree (or higher) heat that day and did an outstanding job. Iian communicated with us through out the afternoon letting us know what was going with the work. In the end the front porch and walkway look fantastic. Andrew Gagliardi was the sales rep for this project. We had a situation - Andy handled it and we were able to complete the project on time. Thank you to Iian, Fermin and Andrew! We appreciate all you have done.

              I have used them to lift a few slabs on my driveway. Had one minor issue in the first year and they came out no questions asked and made it right. I would recommend them to anyone and would absolutely call them again. I thought I would need $20000 of work based on estimates I got to replace my otherwise good concrete slabs. They came out and for way way way less $ solved my issue. I can’t recommend them enough!
