Testimony re Chimney Removal Crew

To: bay_view_matters@yahoogroups.com
From: Tegan Dowling <tmd0309@yahoo.com>
Subject: Re: [bay_view_matters] Chimneys Removed by Godsil & Spring

They removed my chimney from the attic floor up
through the roof, then patched above and below. Now
my attic is one step closer to being livable (money
and code willing).

They’re solid, dependable, honest, sincere,
knowlegeable, thoughtful and hard-working, and Shedd
(the quiet one of the partners) pronounced my cat
“excellent”.

Cedar Shake Wizzard Tom Grossman on Whitefish Bay Project Early 1980s

This is one of our more spectacular roof as art projects installed by a most gifted “cedar shake man” Tom Grossman, who eventually founded Rover Renovations, now based in the Southwest, USA. We hope Tom, a Vietnam Veteran, may come to Milwaukee to help us install cedar shingles on the Soldiers Home Chapel, if we are so fortunate as to win that contract.

Endorsements for Restoration Work Since 1975

“Jim has worked very hard to become a restorationist on Milwaukee’s East Side. He has created, promoted and sponsored other artisans through business referrals and is really the “go to” individual when a restoration challenge arises for an older home in the Milwaukee area.”—Ex-President Shorewood Village, Michael Schulte

“I do know you to be a man of integrity, skill and understanding …. I wish there were more Jim Godsil’s in the world to promote craftsmanship and the skilled tradesman.” ----Brian Pionke, Director Milwaukee Historic Preservation Commission

“You have been working extremely hard over the last 30
years to acquire a pool of qualified craftsman who can restore our pre World War II architecture…(and) Your efforts for providing Milwaukee and our Country with a source for skilled craftsman are extremely important to the
roofing and sheet metal trade.”—Ted Mc Namara—Vice President of Christiansen Roofing

Mr. Godsil is a leader in the community of restorative artesians whose goal is to preserve our pre-World War II housing stock. For the last 30 years Mr. Godsil has trained hundreds of young men and women in the Milwaukee area in the roofing and restoration fields.”…Norman Dunkelberger-Centaur Restorations, Inc.

“You have expertly trained many young tradesmen over the years. We always recommend your firm whenever the opportunity presents itself. Pass this on to whomever and they can call if they have any questions about the reputation of Community Roofing.”---Norm Terapak, President Terapak Realty

I have known James Godsil for over 30 years. He is a man of high integrity in both his personal and business affairs. As I have recently had the opportunity to use his business services, I can attest to the excellent service and honesty Mr. Godsil demonstrates as a business person.” ---Co-Founder ESHAC, Inc. Alexander Minash

Jim Godsil has been a pillar in Milwaukee’s contracting community for decades, has worked for thousands of customers & is know throughout the North Shore for his many talents.” —Barry Snider of Snider and Company

“His workers are proficient, professional and get the
job done. He is an excellent roofer himself.”—Ex-Director ESHAC, Inc. Carol Brill

“For the past thirty years James Godsil has been a
active and concerned citizen and businessman in our community.”—County Supervisor Gerry Broderick

“I would also like to be on record commending the
work of Jim Godsil, of Community Roofing, who has an outstanding
reputation in the Milwaukee community for his long involvement in
repairing and restoring houses.”—Harvey Taylor

“Mr. Godsil is a long respected business owner and
community leader…Mr. Godsil is a leader in his field…Community Roofing has received city-wide recognition for the quality of work it does and it’s commitment to treating it’s employees well…”----Publisher of Shepherd Express Louis Fortis

“As such Jim is the best contact in Milwaukee when sensitive work is required…(and)… Mr. Godsil’s organization has deep roots in the Milwaukee community”…Alterra’s Ward Fowler

“Godsil’s company, Community Roofing, and the companies with which he partners, are a driving force in preserving not only architectural masterpieces but also older homes in neighborhoods that are on
the brink of destruction.”----Chris Ward

he is a man of his word…and… empowering
hundred of young persons into the trades.----Bills Sells

Dear Godsil,

I am more than eager to support your good deed of sponsoring Jan for citizenship here. Knowing how you have acted so responsibly in the past, I am sure you would not move ahead and say you are capable of doing this financially if it were not so. Milwaukee is a city that has done much restoration of older buildings and will continue to do so in the near future. Having been a part of such restorations, I know the importance of skilled labor in this area and how hard it is to find it here. I can see how Ja would be a great asset to the community.

Peace and blessings.
