We can’t thank you guys at Culy enough for the great work you done on our project.  Our Infiltration is down 30,000 gallons a day since your visit.  Its amazing to see the process and it was inexpensive compared to the alternatives.

Andy and the entire Culy team were great to work with. They moved quickly when we needed help on a project at our house and were very responsive to our questions along the way. We appreciate it!

Culy Contracting has done an EXCELLENT job for me on several projects and I would highly recommend them to all. The supervisor on my jobs (Eric Nunez) and three other employees (Jimmy Ainsworth, Dan McKnight, and Robert Williams) went out of their way to help me troubleshoot significant plumbing issues. Although their scope changed in the middle of the project, they were all flexible and worked with me to get the job done, at a very reasonable cost. As they worked, they kept a positive attitude, were respectful, and displayed a true commitment to providing the best customer service possible.

Although I don’t know all the Culy employees, I have no doubt that they all are dedicated and professional. They are my go-to contractors!

Just wanted to send you a quick note of praise for Dan Hargarten and his crew. I’ve had the chance to watch them work the past few weeks here at school. They have been super professional, kind and considerate, and they can really work!  In today’s world, it’s hard to find guys that will put in the work…your guys do. Kudos!  You should be proud of them.

Thank you for the professional work you did recently in Centerville, Indiana. Everything we saw was done expertly by well qualified individuals. Each crew member knew what they needed to do and worked well together. It was a pleasure to observe.

Each person was very friendly and wanted to please. We were impressed with the quality of equipment that was used. Thank you again for a such a fine job.

I understand compliments in your business may be few these days. I just wanted to write and give thanks and kudos to the crew who did the water line project in Centerville. My 90 year old mother lives in Centerville. The crews were so kind and patient. The job was not easy and so far, the work nearly complete, has been superb. They stayed into the night to make sure her water service was restored. This is going above and beyond for a municipal projects contractor. Thanks so much. Please tell the crew we appreciate them.

As you know, we just had a 12 inch TEAM Valve installed in Kendallville on one of our major transmission lines.

I wanted to thank you for your professionalism and friendly behavior during this process. I know I had lots of questions and contacted you many times.

In addition, the two men you sent did an excellent job! They were very pleasant to deal with. They answered all of our questions and made us feel very comfortable. It is difficult to find men of this caliber and I wanted to acknowledge their work ethic and their ability to treat others with respect.

I always recommend your company when asked by my peers and will continue to do so. You obviously work very hard on choosing and training good people. Thanks Again!

I just wanted to email you and thank you for allowing Tom to speak at the AWWA Conference last week.  I was the moderator for his presentation, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.  We had a number of people come up after, and were extremely impressed with his knowledge of the topic.  I also wanted to tell you that we as a Utility look forward to using Culy, and especially Tom’s knowledge in the future.  Tom always makes himself available when a problem arises, and brings a wealth of knowledge about the industry with him. He brings great credit upon himself and your company.  Thank you again for standing behind your prompt professional services as you always have.

Been with Dalton before and always get the same good results. Being back in contact with them in the field on the Dayton and Clermont job has been a pleasure. He runs a solid crew and we always get quality work and excellent communication from them. The extra time he puts in to make notes and clarify issues is invaluable down the road when the tv crew in gone. Seems like we always hear about things that go bad so wanted to make sure I shared some good results. All the City Rep’s and Owners echo the same acccolades. Look forward to the next project we work together on.

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Culy,

I needed to take the time to send you an email regarding the project that was done at the entrance of my development. If you were not aware of the location of the worksite, it was situated at the top of two hills. There are several blindspots in this location and it is a favorite of cyclist for the hills. Culy’s kept the road open due to the amount of traffic and the blindspots. We have six buses that come through the neighbor hood twice a day, two homes were under construction and one hme be renovated. This did not include all the regular contractors such as painters, landscaping companies, tree removal, etc. They kept the site clean and kept us well informed. We are grateful not only for the job that was done, but the extra care and service provided to our community.

Your crew made the repairs to the structures and they looked absolutely beautiful if you can say that about a waste water plant. Now we also know that the repairs perform just as good as they look. We are extremely pleased with the outcome of this project.

I want to let you know that the performance of your crew exceeds expectation as well. We really appreciate the fact that these gentlemen were able to help us out even though we had a very tight time frame. They were all very professional and task oriented. Their attention to detail is outstanding. The finish product application is something to be admired. They left the job site clean and cared for. Their interaction with my office staff was professional and courteous.

In closing, I will definitely be looking to Culy Contracting the future for our manhole sealing projects. Thank you,

Thank you so much for the services that Culy Contracting has provided for us. Your company is a life saver in this field of work. They are a great group of guys who performed their jobs to the highest of standards. The crew did an amazing job, and we challenged them with our manhole locations in the creek. They overcame every obstacle in their path and made it look easy. Overall, your company is A++ in my book and I look forward to continuing a partnership with Culy Contracting for years to come. Thank you so much,

Mike Reed, Belmont County Sanitary Sewer District, Collection System Supervisor
