The initial analysis by Damian the day before work began was very well-thought out and knowledgable. I also appreciated the free initial consultation. Two other plumbing companies dropped by previously -- one didn't want to touch the job after diagnosing the issue, and the other charged $89 for the consult, and though some knowledge was imparted it wasn't to the level of Damian. Their estimate had a lot of loopholes and sketchy add-ons also, hence was also far more expensive.
Next day work started -- replacing the gas valve on an outdoor fire pit under an existing concrete slab -- and Damian's work was careful, clean, and efficient. The project was finished around 3:15, everything swept and cleaned, and at end we now had a nice, functioning outdoor fire pit. From my experience with the other two companies, it was clear I had selected the right one for this job, and am glad Damian was assigned this project as it took someone with a solid knowledge of gas valves and connections. Thank you.
