Q. How did you get started doing this type of work?
A. About 15 years ago I was asked by a friend if I wanted to work with him.
I saw yes and started building houses with 4 amazing guys to work with.

After a few years of that, I decided it was time for me to venture on my own.

Q. What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
A. With the Internet literally at the palm of your hand, make sure to do enough research on the product and installers.

With technology today, everyone should be able to take a credit card. There may be a small fee for credit card payment.
