Fogdall repairs report

Since I logged a couple questions and comments about my visit to Ace Fogdalls at Cedar Falls Iowa I thought I should report back on the outcome of my trip.
For the most part the work seems to have been well done. The repairs to the sheet metal and wheel well and the replacement of the dump handles looks good and functions perfectly (damage done due to blown tire if you remember) Both the new furnace and the new water heater function normally. But the recaulking of roof seams is a mess. A ridge of white sealant three inches wide across the roof and worse around the Fantastic Fan hoods. (our roof is white) And during installation of the water heater the technician must have had trouble fitting it in, so he removed a small wooden panel next to the commode and replaced it with what appears to be a cupboard door from some Jayco or something similar. I will have to remove it and craft a wood panel that matches the rest of the woodwork in the bathroom ( '88 29'Excella 1000) New breakaway switch is fine. Total cost for the DSI water heater, 30Kbtu heater and the repair work to about two feet of sheet metal and the replaced dump valves was $3450.
The folks at Fogdall's seem to be friendly and courteous. They have just moved into a new facility.

To me, being in Chicago, there are 2 places I'd consider for service. One is Ace Fogdall based on folks here praising their work. I've seen some of the work they have done and it has seemed very good.

To me, Ace is 5hrs away, as is Jackson Center. So for me, it seems like a no brainer on which to go to.
