Thousands of satisfied Customers , Here's What Some Have To Say?

Thank you for the great work you folks did yesterday on McElderry Rd, Guelph.   As you may recall I have had this work done primarily to meet conditions of sale of this property.  Along with this work the purchasers have requested some kind of documentation that would assure them that the stove is operational and meets safety standards.

I look forward to hearing from you on this and regarding the Mill Street property (there is no rush!).

Many thanks,

Kelly Jeffery
