West Bay Heating and Sheet Metal
About this pro
I think that I take more care to do the job right the first time.1st reason-I want a satisfied customer.thats the best advertising. 2nd-having to come back and fix something later is no fun for anyone including me. 3rd-giving someone a great job means that they will remember me when they have another project that may require my trade. and again,refer me to friends and family crawling under dark crawlspaces.no,thats not it. risking my life on steep roofs. no,not it either. doing a job that I do well,walking away knowing that I gave them their moneys worth and maybe even made new friends. getting paid is a highlight as well .
