Client Testimonials

We are considering re-configuring our attic bedrooms to install a bath above an old stud wall. Our 1870s semi was built when baths were made of steel and usually located on basement or lower level. [Abbott Holliday’s] prompt and professional service gave us peace of mind to continue without the need for expensive, additional strengthening. Jenny W
