Dear Howard (also known as The Porch Man)!

We just want you to know how much we are in love with our new porch. We enjoy it not only in the evening but also as we eat breakfast out there too! Tinkerbell says it is absolutely PURRRFECT for her too! It's a job well done and if you ever need a recommendation, just call on us.

Dear Howard:

Your reputation for thoroughly professional workmanship extends all the way to Big Rapids. I was impressed by the entire scope of your operation—the taking of precise measurements, the thorough explanations to someone unfamiliar with construction, the precise attention to detail during installation, the cleanup when the job was finished. Furthermore, helping me with my last minute painting and providing end caps to cover the seams on my posts, all at no extra charge, was particularly refreshing. Such gestures are rare today.

And how could I forget to mention the puns and the humor. Fair warning to your future customers: prepare to be entertained by this stand-up comedian masquerading as “The Porch Man.”

The quality of your work is, of course, your best recommendation. However, if anyone wants further verification from a satisfied customer, feel free to have them call me. Thanks for a super job.

Dear Howard,

Again I say “thank you!”. This is the second screened-in patio that you have put up for me and both times the workmanship has been exquisite.

This last one on Bridge street was really a challenge though. I didn't think that because of the situation of the garage and rectory we would be able to have a patio, but you showed that not only could we have a patio, but it would be so constructed that it would appear to be on the original plans of the house. Many compliments have been received; everyone is impressed.

Again thank you very much.

Sincerely yours in Jesus Chris

Howard, just a note to let you know how pleased we are with the porch and how much we are enjoying it. The carpet is in — furnishing completed and I even finished the landscaping last week while I was on vacation. Everyone who has seen the porch has given it rave notices.

It was a pleasure doing business with you — you have those refreshing qualities of dedication, sincerity and genuine pride in your work — plus a pretty good sense of humor.

Howard, please use this letter as the Mullen's highest recommendation of “The Porch Man̶

Dear Howard,

We are thrilled with our new porch! The angles and curves are perfectly matched with our roofline. It is certainly a customized piece of work.

We truly appreciate your confidence in tackling our porch. Some other firms in town weren't up to it.

Thanks again, Howar

Thank you so much for a job very well done! We are just thrilled with our porch and can't wait for spring time! It looks like it has always “been here.” One would not realize that it has been “added on.”

We do appreciate the fine workmanship which you do — everything is done to “perfection.” And you are a very pleasant person to deal with. We will think of you often while we are enjoying our lovely porc
