To: Prospective Gates General Contractors, Inc. Customers

Timbershore Homeowners Association is located in Eagan, Minnesota. Our development consists of 172 units with 43 buildings. We have worked with Gates General Contractors, Inc. for the past six years. They have gone above and beyond our expectations. We are very happy with the results from Gates General Contractors, Inc.

When a windstorm came through three years ago, they were able to respond to our needs on very short notice. We called them on Saturday morning and they were able to get the damaged roofs covered with tarps to prevent any further damage by early afternoon. They worked in conjunction with our insurance carrier to get the roofs covered by insurance.

Two buildings were damaged by wind again this year and they were able to get tarps on the spots where the shingles came off. Once again, they worked with our insurance carrier to get the damage covered.

We have gotten referrals from Bruce Gates for other work that was needed in our townhouse association. He has given us very professional people to work on our gutters and siding. Once again, the work was done in a timely manner.

When we had questions about the work schedule, Bruce took our phone call while on vacation.

We feel that Gates General Contractors, Inc. has been receptive to our needs and worked well with our board and homeowners while the roofing projects have been going on. We do a minimum of 3 buildings per year. Several years we were able to 9 buildings in one year. The projects have been done on time, materials cleaned up, advance notice and schedules have been given to homeowners and have had great support dealing with individual homeowners.

In closing, I would strongly recommend Bruce Gates and his staff. They have exceeded our expectations.
