“S.R. Freeman is well-staffed. It’s not just the staffing that is unprecedented, their quality is second to none. You can tell everyone is properly trained also. I used them recently on a 9,000-square-foot remodel. The steel is integrated seamlessly. The ceilings were tricky and necessitated some design-build thinking. S.R. Freeman nailed it…pun intended!! Thanks for the great work, Shone and team.”

“I would like to take this opportunity to express what a pleasure it is working with you. You and your team have done nothing but an amazing job. Responsiveness, overall service, in-field quality, and integrity have been top-notch.”
