A Huge Thanks for Wonderful Service

“L.J. Kruse Co. really goes above and beyond! We have used them on several occasions for a variety of issues. They always impress! From Heather in the office (whose customer service, informational help and communication I can always count on) to Ramon, the awesome plumber who comes out and saves the day with his skill and expertise, to Greg, whose work within the home goes back almost 20 years, to Mike, who has repaired the boiler and heating system and seriously knows his stuff. We are so grateful we know we can rely on L.J. Kruse Co. to be top-notch! We have used them for years and will continue to call on them as needed. Always professional, punctual, communicative and thorough. Thank you, L.J. Kruse Co.!”

Going Above and Beyond for Clients

“We had a punctured water pipe that caused a leak in our kitchen and ruined a brand-new floor. L.J. Kruse Co. sent James to do the work. He was efficient, kind and very helpful. Finished the job in half a day and we couldn't be more pleased. Thank you! We would definitely would call L.J. Kruse Co. again.”
