Greg and Diana Black highly recommend neighbor Joe Jordan (770-427-1935) for driveway and sidewalk pressure washing.

Lonnie and Pat Dodson would like to recommend E & R Flooring, Inc. for tile installation.  The owner, Mr. Emmanuel Aboytes, and his crew were friendly, professional, very reasonably priced, and did an EXCELLENT job installing a new porcelain tile floor and shower in our guest bath.  E & R Flooring is located in Acworth, GA.  Emmanuel can be reached at 678-360-8178.


We also recommend Dean Freeman for plumbing.  Dean completed the plumbing rough-in and installation of shower fixtures in our newly renovated bath.  He also did a great job at a very reasonable price.  Dean can be reached at 404-201-3037.
