Scheduled appointment. Technician called and said they were 20 minutes out during the two-hour window they provided. Waited and waited. Technician never arrived nor called to say there were suddenly unable to come. Called main office and was told technician was no longer able to come and to reschedule. Will not reschedule.

I am not comfortable relying on this company and ha...

Michael was very nice, looking at the brick chimneys that need to be repairs above the roof (starting to fall apart). However, he said he would have to send a mason to take a look at those. Since the brick chimneys is what I asked about, this was rather silly. Mi...
