There are people who take their work seriously, and those who are primarily in it for the money. This was my first time using Pernell Doe, and it was easy to see that he took his work seriously.
This was an emergency roof repair. He was there on short notice, identified the problem immediately, and offered a very detailed overview of what needed to be done.
Even though his quote (1 of 3) was higher than the other quotes, I went ahead and hired him anyway because I was confident that for a little bit more money, I was getting expert workmanship.
The work was done as scheduled, and even though I have no intentions of going up on the roof to check, my guess is that it was a job well done.
Plus, he's really such a great guy. Seriously, if you meet him, you're going to have to stifle the impulse to hire him right on the spot.
