Q: What is your favorite Maxons story?
A: I recently went to a project we were working on with the Project Manager. In the initial call we were told there was 8 inches of water in a person’s high end finished basement. When we got there, there was over 2.5 feet of water in 3k square foot area. It was a beautifully designed recreation style room of a very large basement that had water flowing into it for two days while the homeowner was away. The homeowner was so impressed with our quick response, and that we rolled up our pants and walked through his house to be able to help him. What impressed me the most was how relaxed the homeowner was, we built a rapport quickly and he was able to put his trust in us and stay calm.
