Re: Anyone heard of Improveit! Home Remodeling?

Those are not the ultamaxx however, the ultramaxx will have the same performance characteristics as above pictures. When people with years of experience with these products do not like certain brands it is for a reason. I had the ultramaxx in my house for 4 years and pulled them out. They looked lik...
