Good work. Arrived in time, and finished on time with a difficult timeline. I had only 3 days available for them. Had to get everything lined up for resale, and they were the linchpin. Very happy. Came back and addressed a minor issue after the replacement was completed. Arrived and handled the problem as promised. Nice looking roof, and nice discount/deals offered to military.

The experience was great! I got exactly what I wanted and the quality of the materials for the price was much better than expected. Everyone associated with the project; owner, office staff, project manager, subcontractors, and Colony crew members were extremely polite, patient, and knowledgeable. They kept my anxiety level low and provided regular status updates. I will definitely hire them again...

Dear Mr. [Member Name Removed] I would like to start by apologizing for the lack of communication. I'm not sure if you recall that I informed you I was going to be leaving the next day on vacation for 12 days.
