If I could give a 10 star review I would.I called on a Monday, they came the Tuesday to assess the job (leaking well and fried wiring) then returned the next day with an excavator to complete the work.The two Mikes did a fantastic job. I knew it would be a difficult one because the saturated ground is just full of rock, welcome to PEC!All was going great until our local junkie lunatic decided to steal one of their work trucks from my driveway.Tail gate open, cap doors open, dropping a plethora of plumbing items as she sped off down the road. Including a motorcycle helmet belonging to another A-1 employee who came by to drop off a couple of fittings.Little did the crackhead know, I have security cameras and resulting video was of great interest to the OPP officer who attended possibly the most ridiculous crime ever committed in Rednersville.With everyone on scene in a state of complete and utter disbelief and now short on tools and supplies, the two Mikes still managed to complete the work. Thank you so much guys!You’re the best.
Natalie N.
