A truly liable contractor should never consider putting un-trained non certified laborers at risk, especially on elevated structures; this behavior can be a major risk for both parties and should be reviewed with great importance. Under Gods law, people are also to be responsible citizens and not put others at unnecessary risk.

• Across the multiple weeks that you were on site, you were attentive to detail and went the extra mile in every area to bring our building back to its original design. In fact, you suggested ways to implement improvements on the original design based upon your work history.

• As Pastor of the Holy Virgin Russian Orthodox in Carnegie Pennsylvania, on behalf of the entire congregation, and myself we would like to express our gratitude for the superb job you and your crew did on our three church domes.

• Thank you so much for your kind donation to the parish and maybe more important the fine job you did on the domes and flashing. I do hope that in the future we can call on you again to maintain the domes and if necessary to work on the roof. I will be in touch. Thank you again for your kindness, concern, and generosity.
