Would like to thank Dave C and Brad K for making the 3-hour trip out to Washington, MO. They were extremely professional and efficient. We appreciate all of their hard work. They explained the system that even if the black edging wasn’t perfect against the wall it would still catch any water that may come in. they cleaned up thoroughly. Yeah! šŸ™‚ from the excellent sales representative to the finished product was a pleasant experience šŸ™‚ Amazing a company that actually does what they say they will. thank you Helitech šŸ™‚
