Can’t recommend Trent and Retaining Excellence enough. He is incredibly dedicated to the craft, does amazing work, and is one of the best communicators we’ve ever worked with. Very fair pricing as well. Look forward to working with him again soon!

Trent is amazing! We hired him after our neighbors had work done the year prior and we also referred him to my mother-in-law! He does high quality work and is the most pleasant person to work with!

Trent did a great job on our wall and he did it in record breaking time. He is the best contractor we ever had work in our yard or on our house and he did a fabulous clean up job. We highly recommend Trent for your next project. Thank you again Trent for your back-breaking work and saving the rest of our yard.
