​Dear Hearth Masters,

I just want to say thank you so much for the workers you have and the work they do.  The gentleman who worked at our house yesterday were very thorough, professional, courteous, and were very careful to clean up their work area. I was very impressed with your first employee when he came to do the inspection and again with the men who did the work. You have outstanding employees!

Thank you for providing this quality of work and professionalism from your company!
