Client Testimonials

Timely and Professional

“American Retrofitters completed a soft retrofit in the time they estimated[…] The company is well run[…] The people who worked on my retrofit job were responsive to my questions along the way, from start to finish. David was particularly helpful and accessible which I greatly appreciated.”

Linda Gach Ray

Saved Thousands!

“We knew that we had a winning team when we were vetting service providers. American Retrofitters was the only service provider that recommended an exemption on another of our buildings and it saved us THOUSANDS of dollars!.”

– Roger Lew

Pleased with the outcome

“I was pleased with the outcome of the work. The contract was clear; the payment installments were nicely outlined and easy to follow; there were no ‘surprises.’ Nice cleanup afterwards. During construction, when I interacted with the workers they were responsive to my requests.”

– Camille Dull
