As a single female homeowner who makes a sparse living in education, I did not feel for a moment that I was in any way in danger of being ripped off. What professionals! First of all, neither of the men who met with me about the estimate used the word "we", which is an old trick that many less than honest men use with single women. There is no we here: just me and my checkbook. Second, if I felt uncomfortable with a situation, Mr. Sanne addressed it immediately. He actually listened to me. Third, the work is beautiful. I have paid far much more for less in the past. I am very impressed with SES overall. Penny, in the office, deserves get a raise for all of my calls and adjustments. I hope to have SES complete future work on my cottage, and I have recommended SES to my other single female homeowner friends.
