They built and delivered physical distancing barriers for the restaurant I worked at! I highly recommend giving Gates at Working Hands a call for any of your handyman or construction needs!

They were incredibly versatile, from creating a new deck area to repairing an old one. Removing a wall to installing new flooring. They were able to take care of things without concern.
