I first became acquainted with Zane Nixon, owner of AAA Mustang Roofing, when our metal roof was severely damaged in a hailstorm. Our house is large and has over 30 separate roof surfaces, with an equivalent number of edges and valleys. Zane and his crew completed the work in less than two weeks, and it is flawless. They even repaired several areas that suffered structural damages.

Just recently a flash flood on the day following hurricane Hermine caused significant damage to the first story of the house. I called Zane and he was here within 30 minutes and stayed until midnight. Using squeegees, towels and a shop vacuum, we managed to save the rugs and furniture. However, the walls required substantial repairs. Zane worked closely with our insurance adjuster, and the wall repair work under his guidance as contractor is every bit as professional as his previous work.

I recommend AAA Mustang without reservation for any type of construction or remodeling job.
