I had 2 needs: connecting an under the sink water filter and installation of a new toilet. The toilet was perfect. The water filter was connected to the hot water when it should have been connected to the cold. The fix by Jake was quick and on time. It always impresses me when a contractor "steps up" and makes things right.
