     "Our Parish interviewed four companies for restoration and repair work for our historic church. We felt Lone Star was the most qualified. Their bid was competitive and their work was superior. Above all, the time we had to be out of the church was minimal, considering the scope of the project. Lone Star did everything they were contracted to do and more! Our Parish Facilities Committee is happy to give our recommendation".

     "Our firm recently completed rehabilitation operations at several Houston Properties consisting of fifty-six buildings and 868 occupied resident units in which Lone Star was an integral component… We found this firm to be accommodating and adaptable to changing project requirements where they conducted various tasks with alacrity and professionalism…We found David Begala, the firm's Owner, the management support staff, as well as the field crews to be hardworking, honest, conscientious individuals of integrity with strong points in organization and field operations. It is to Lone Star's credit that these activities were performed in a timely fashion and within budget limitations, the mark of a quality contractor, particularly so in a fully resident occupied facility…We would recommend this firm without equivocation predicated upon our Houston experiences…and plan to employ them again in the immediate future".

     "We want to take a moment to thank you and your staff for the quality work and professionalism displayed during the recent repainting and caulking program at The Inverness Apartments (204 units). Thanks in large part to your attention to detail, and the daily cleaning of the property, we received no resident complaints during the period the work was being performed. We appreciate that our residents were not discomfited in any manner. Your close interaction with our on-site management staff resulted in a smooth and timely completion of the project. We look forward to working with your firm as future needs arise".

     "I am quite diligent in my research of any company that we engage in a business relationship with…I have nothing but good things to say about the entire process of having you paint our twenty-one buildings at Silvercreek Apartment Homes. Your field supervisor was outstanding throughout the entire process…we were very impressed with the speed and quality of the workmanship of both the painting and carpentry crews. They were fast, neat and very courteous to our residents…You have a group of hard working guys in the field and their professionalism was very apparent. Thanks for a job well done. Lone Star delivered on all of its promises".

     "…I would like to compliment Lone Star Painting and Carpentry for the carpentry and painting work completed at Oakwood Village Apartments and at Pine Ridge Place Apartments—approximately 600 units. We had a busy year acquiring 5 properties, 1823 units, in a span of 4 months. All these properties required a significant amount of rehab work… The less we have to bring contractors back to correct sloppy work, the more we can concentrate on actual operations and managing cash flow. Lone Star handled both jobs at the same time and completed both carpentry and painting with no change orders or callbacks! …work was done above and beyond the original scope of the contract for problems that were not visible during the bidding. This is the only letter of compliment I've written for all of the rehabs we are currently undergoing because Lone Star has surpassed our company's expectations. Your company will be on our vendor list in Texas and throughout the U.S.A."!
