    The company is highly professional, knowledgeable, and their integrity can not be matched. My husband, Mike, died on May 13, on May 23 we had a terrible storm. I was approached by multiple companies to repair my roof and then Ben Van Kuren and the principles of the company came to my door. What continues to be a difficult time, Ben has been wonderful. My roof was replaced in one day and the area completely clean. They gone above and beyond all expectations. I really believe that God and my husband, Mike, sent Ben to help me through this.
