    "I am writing to compliment your employees on a job well done. Bob was very responsive in returning phone calls from the initial contact we made to get preliminary estimates to finish our basement. The foreman was at our house almost every day for two-and-a-half weeks. His work was excellent. He finished everything on or ahead of schedule, left all of the work areas clean, and finished all of the small details to complete the job entirely. Due to the timeliness and quality of their work, we were able to enjoy our finished basement prior to the Thanksgiving holiday as promised."

  • The Roads Are Bad Out Tonight: Tips On Driving In The Snow

    [caption id="attachment_9740" align="alignleft" width="322"]snow weather ice driving tips Tips For Driving In Snowy Weather[/caption]

    Driving in the snow can be a strain, and can turn very dangerous if you don't drive safely. Here are some tips to keep you safe on the icy and snowy streets:

    • Before starting out in snowy weather, take time to remove the snow from the entire car, so it does not blow onto your windshield or the windshields of other drivers. Make sure your mirrors and lights are clean as well.
    • Drive with your low-beam headlights illuminated.
    • When the roads are icy, slow down and allow extra time to reach your destination.
    • Allow sufficient room for maintenance vehicles and plows, stay at least 15 car lengths (200 feet) back and, if you need to pass, go to the other vehicle's left.
    • Watch for icy surfaces on bridges and intersections, even when the rest of the road seems to be in good condition.
    • If you are stuck in snow, straighten the wheel and accelerate slowly. Add sand or salt under the drive wheels to help avoid spinning the tires.
    • If your tires lose traction, continue to look and steer in the direction you want to go. If the drive wheels start to spin or slide while going up a hill, ease off the accelerator slightly and then gently resume speed.
