What people are saying about Guthrie & Frey in Grafton

Amazing experience. I worked with Craig, and after calling for a quote he dropped by to take measurements and see the layout of our basement. From the minute he entered the basement he knew the best way to set up our water softener system, and was able to provide a very accurate and well explained quote. His quote was also the most competitively priced, compared to other quotes from companies who did not bother to send anyone to measure our basement. Install happened one week after signing and was quick and easy. Everything done on-time and as agreed. Going with Guthrie & Frey was the best decision I could have made.

“We have been using Guthrie & Frey for over 16 years. They are fantastic. Very responsive, friendly and great workmanship.”

Greg V.

“Many thanks to Guthrie and Frey for replacing our water system today. They removed a nearly 20 year old Culligan set of equipment and replaced it in 3 hours with a brand new Iron Curtain and a 40,000 grain softener, and both systems are state-of-the-art and Wisconsin-made. Light years better! Zero pressure to “make a sale” and nothing but professionals from the consultant to the installers. Can’t say enough how awesome it was working with them.”
