When a severe snowfall caused the roof of our store to collapse, we were devastated and did not know what to do. Our Husky representative recommended Mark Walsh. As our project manager, Mark handled everything on our behalf and provided a strategy to rebuild our business and make it even stronger. We truly appreciate all that Mark has done for us and remain in close touch, as he has become like a family member.
