Need Water Damage Repair?

I was very delighted with my decision to hire LBR Construction to do fire repairs. Tom helped me from the drafting phase all the way through the final repairs. The house was done on time and within budget and it was great how they worked with my insurance company so I didn't get taken advantage of, or have to spend much of my own time with them. Thanks!
