Project Summary:

Crawford's dedicated team worked, around the clock, to assist with last-minute adjustments during the installation process. The support stand weighed a total of 2500 pounds (20' x 20' square).

WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING

Last week we had a plumbing issue that needed to be addressed asap. Unfortunately, it was a leaking pipe and fitting from the community college side of a city owned building. Their preferred plumbing contractor (Crawford Company) was contacted and the service guy (Brock) was there immediately to inspect and evaluate the repair. The job was done quickly, neatly, and was not any inconvenience to the public (no water was required to be shut off). I wanted to send a thank you and compliment the Crawford service guy (Brock), excellent job
