Testimonial Letter
from another Satisfied Jarvis Builders Customer

21 May, 2012

To Whom it may concern:
***I waited to take this opportunity to say a few things about Russ Jarvis as a contractor and builder. Last ) ear it as our pleasure to have worked with Russ on a home improvement project. Initially we had contacted him regarding work we wanted done to our old house, but having to move, we called him again for an estimate on replacing our garage, and re-roofing our home. Both estimates we received were reasonable and affordable. While we went only with the roofing at that time, his estimate was right on the money. His work was superb. The attic before reroofing had shown signs of leaking around the fireplace chimney, that has now stopped! He cleaned up so that it really looked like he wasn't there. He took pains not to damage our roses or other plants around the house. Again, a superb job.
***We have now had Russ out for another estimate on work for us. We are looking to replace our garage this year and add on a porch to the front of the house. I called Russ because we want a quality job...one that we are not going to have to call another contractor later to get. Russ does quality work, he takes the time to listen to us, to provide us with a plan for the work to be done, and above all he takes the time to fully explain to us the best way to accomplish the job! We have told pretty much everyone in our neighborhood who it was that performed our work...and that he is the best we have ever worked with. Would I recommend him? We already have!!!
