Excellence and Quality

"I would like to take this time to thank you for another great job James J. Calmes Construction did at our school. Because of the nature of the problem, quick action was required. Within 24 hours of my phone call, you came to our school, assessed the situation, recommended a sound solution and completed the entire job for a good price.  Your crew's clean-up following the job was excellent.
Again, your company has demonstrated excellence and quality. Your commitment and service this week and in the past is very much appreciated."
