I met Karl several years ago and I was very impressed with his knowledge of the construction trade. The job I met him on was a condominium that had major water damage. The owner lived out of state and Karl handled all of the typical issues that arise as if the owner was standing right next to him. He described the extent of the water damage, gave the owner a bid to do the work in a timely manner.
The owner hired Karl and Karl got his guys on the job quickly. All of the guys on his crew were very friendly and professional. I did the mold inspection for the buyer (buyers real estate agent) and I then explained what I wanted done to repair the water damaged areas with Karl and he did everything without any quarreling.
I have since worked many jobs with Karl and every job has been completed in a timely manner above and beyond the owners expectation(s).
