strict on its requirements, he said, so if a company
has these credentials, they are doing good work.
"And make sure the contractor gets a building
permit. If they don't, something is wrong.
"We use energy-efficient and topnotch products,
but I don't believe in spending someone's money

bigger companies, Jack of all trades might just
be the right fit for you..."
