Matt Hanlon worked as our contractor for about 5 months during which time we undertook a major landscaping project at our home in Trail. We have never found a person who was more reliable, hard working and conscientious as Matt. He honored all the commitments he made to us and his ability to operate the equipment he owns was quite astonishing and a pleasure to watch. We would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.
