The Hardy Group did an excellent job in restoring our home from Hurricane Matthew. We have had smaller repairs done from Irma, and the work was every bit as good. We recommend him highly.Ray and Linda Matuza

I have done many projects with the Hardy Group, I consider them one of my favorite GC’s. Mr. Hardy runs a tight ship. Which is better for all involved.
