"Great people to work with. Glad I was able to finally find a solution for my Sunroom!"
"Eric has been nothing but professional! I have been working with him for about a month now and he has been extremely patient with us and I want to make sure that we get exactly what we want. He has sent me several ideas and been working with us every step of the way. We are looking at a March/April install and looking forward to it. I would highly recommend them!"
"They were punctual, friendly, professional, and very qualified. I really can't say enough good things about this service and I highly highly recommend them."
"Eric, the owner of The Fish Guy, called back immediately and even though it was a Saturday and it was snowing, he came over prepared to repair the leak which involved a PVC pipe and joint under the aquarium. He covered the floor completely to protect it, and then cut out the leaking PVC, and replaced it. Working under an aquarium in a confined space is not easy, but he completed the work in a professional and efficient manner. I am very grateful to him for coming out on a Saturday, and not trying to take advantage of the situation."
