Never heard of them. My neighbour has had Canlok and Glover Brothers in for quotes though. They were very impressed with both of the guys who showed up. My friend in Deer Run used Glover Brothers, and mentioned their price and workmanship is excellent. They also give you a five year warranty for any sort of shifting, or issues you have with the work.

Good luck with your project.

Never heard of them but that's no surprise - so many guys do interlock and there's tons of small outfits every year. Doesn't mean they're bad though, just harder to get references for. On the other side, there's a big established company up the road from me (20+ years, family business etc etc) and some of the work I've seen them do recently is pretty crappy - the big guys get complacent once they have the flow of work, employ junior crews and enjoy the big margins from over-the-top prices. Ideally you want the little guy who'll do great work as a means to get strong recommendations.

That's pretty much how I see it. Sad but often (not always!) true!

This is a very good point.

Did you end up going with them StrayCat?

We just met with the owner and got a great vibe and are in the final stages of discussions for our projects.
