Client Testimonials

When our basement flooded we were fortunate that our insurance company used SOS. We found them to be professional, prompt extremely efficient polite and clean. Because of their work we asked if they would do our rebuild and remodelling of the now clean fresh smelling basement. Thankfully they agreed and their work was exemplary. They listened to our wants and gave us alternative ideas and carried out the work not just to our satisfaction but also to their own. There were times when they saw a problem that we didn’t and put it right. There were no shortcuts and we heard their work ethic of “if I wouldn’t be happy with it why should someone else”several times. We can not fault anything about this company or their workers, they were always on time, polite, clean and informative. If there was a problem or delay we were told before each incident, it was explained and new work date given. In short we can not find any fault no matter how minor with SOS. Not only would we recommend them if asked we have been extolling their work to friends, family and acquaintances.
