We recently hired Adequate Solutions to work on the roof and gutters of our home in North Burnaby. The house is 110 years old, 4 storeys high, with a roof so steep that when we replaced the shingles 25 years ago, the first 4 companies we approached wanted nothing to do with working up there. However, Yuri - the contractor with Adequate Solutions - is a dedicated mountaineer who seems more comfortable at the top of a 40-foot ladder than down on the ground. He was the perfect guy for the job.
We needed the asphalt shingles cleaned of moss and sediment, several sections of downpipe removed or repaired, gutters washed and cleaned, and all the windows washed. Yuri did everything thoroughly and conscientiously. Wearing his safety harness, he spent many hours scraping the entire roof by hand. The old gutters were all scrubbed clean. A couple of downpipes had become completely clogged with sand and grit from the shingles. He swapped them for new ones, including a tricky section that angled around a corner.
Although it can sometimes Yuri a while between visits to show up again, he works diligently and efficiently, cleaning up after each session. He knows his craft well and is happy to take on additional tasks, whether painting a pipe or re-installing a gutter to the proper angle. His pricing is fair and his terms are reasonable. He tells you everything that requires servicing, and theres no up-selling or inflating the to-do list. Hes also very friendly and trustworthy.
I can easily recommend Adequate Solutions for any home services that require long ladders and lots of experience. I expect to hire Yuri again someday.
