Customer Review

Excellent, knowledgeable, professional, and just all the way around great.

The guy who came to help me out, Michael, with water issues was excellent, knowledgeable, professional, and just all the way around great. Very impressed with my experience overall. I would recommend Golden Rule to anyone, will definitely use again. Just zero BS through the whole process. The price he quoted me was the price of the ticket when he finished. Everything you want in having a service dude come to your place. Excellent.
