Tom Black
Premier Strata
I would never recommend a company, unless I knew for sure they delivered excellent service, so I very rarely recommend anyone in this business, but i would recommend ALSS Bathrooms because of the service and costs they provide our clients. I am just overall very happy with the service, I no longer have headaches, dealing with slow and incompetent people, now I feel very secure in trusting ALSS to maintain all my properties in the future. Fast, efficient, and not anything to have to worry about, the workmanship is good, the costs are good, and so my landlords are all happy ! So that’s peace of mind on me to not have to argue with my landlords on being too expensive, or not being a quality job. I am happy with the whole service all round 🙂
