There's are an infinete amount of details when ensureing that a house works as a system.  Robert has been working with Balance Point since 2010 helping to put successful projects together.   It may seem simple but putting together plumbing pipes or ducts through the building enclosure while makeing sure there are no air leaks and the systems work optimally is a challenge in new and existing homes.   It's the lillte details that make a home work and Roberts goal is to make your home work great.  Like all members of our team, specialists work on all aspects of the project to get the critical installation details right.
