From Our Partners
“Your team performed at the top of their game – they kept safe, accomplished a quality installation, and in an extremely timely fashion – all while you worked through 3-½” of rain…
During normal operations or challenging times I know we want Kissick on our side.
I honestly still can’t figure out how you did all that work in those conditions. From the NKCH family – THANK YOU SO MUCH!”

“On behalf of Turner and the NKCH team, we want to thank you all for your hard work this past weekend.
