What our customers are saying

This morning the GC here praised the quality of work of API and I wanted to make sure that you hear the positive feedback. DPR requested that all other contractors on site use your business for core drills moving forward. They noted that API provides high quality work while also maintaining safe practices and leaving the work area cleaner than when you started....

Thanks again for the level of service you provide, we appreciate it and it’s getting recognized by others as well!

Paul, The service was great. I called API when my original core drilling company couldn’t get to me for almost 3 weeks. API made it out almost immediately and got the job done in only a few days.

Thanks for your help.

They did a great job of coring holes for drains and sinks at Dulles Airport. This job was a little more on the difficult side because of the Terazzo floors. We had to cut square holes for the floor sinks. This had to be accurate because this was the finished floor.
