The Owner has established high standards for his employees. His philosophy is to complete each job like it’s your own home. A good example is if an installation crew makes a mistake, or the customers’ expectations are not met he will redo the job rather than discount the price no matter what the cost is.  This philosophy has earned the Company a strong referral and repeat customer base. This is not easy to achieve in this industry.
