expertise as an insurance consultant include investigating properties to determine scope, costs, and cause
of areas damaged, insuring that costs are in relation to market value of services provided and working
directly with insurance adjusters to validate submitted documentation. Hank is IICRC certified,
Registration No. 145043. Other certifications include OSHA Job Site and PPE Safety Certification, 2010

the industry was falling short and founded Millworks Construction, LLC to further the customer service
and quality needed in this industry.
