“Allen provided the level of expertise that we needed to complete the roof restoration project at the Scarboro Golf and Country Club. With Allen’s expertise we were able to ensure the roofing contractor carried out the installation to the highest of standards. He was diligent and prepared to address any and all deficiencies with the contractor, prepared comprehensive progress and deficiency reports and gave the club a big sense of comfort with this complicated and important project.
