“My interaction with Mike was in regards to the Sun Valley Amphitheater and its copper roof. This project was an extremely complicated roof that required significant customization of copper roof shingles as well as productively because the project had a very tight schedule. In the time that I worked with Mike, he was extremely capable regarding his ability to hand work the custom copper panels. This is a skill that not many people in the world have anymore and I was very impressed. His quality was also extremely high. There were not any areas that I saw at the end of the project that required any rework. In regards to his productivity as well as the productivity of his crew, I was probably most impressed with this aspect of his work. He used a relatively small crew and got the project done well ahead of what I thought was possible. Part of that was his ability to plan ahead but it also had a lot to do with the fact that Mike came up with a mobile positioning device that allowed his crew to work in an ergonomically efficient manner. I believe the positioning device allowed the men to not only install large quantities of shingles each ay, but it also allowed them to work day after day without wearing out. In short, I would highly recommend Mike for any custom architectural roof.”
