Gus is a really nice guy, but I was not impressed with what he delivered and I felt he wasn't entirely truthful about his work or his capabilities. Our job involved adding some gutters, putting covers on a few, and because he said he knew how to install them, putting in some rain barrels, and generally "tightened up" the existing gutters.

On the covers, he told me that they would be installed such that they slid under the slate shingles. In other words, they would not just lie on top of the shingles such that debris could easily get under them. I can see from my upstairs windows that they are not installed in this fashion. I asked him about it when he returned to fix a downspout he was supposed to have repaired the first time around. He left me a note that claiming that a hornets next had been blocking the downspout and it was fixed (which it was not) and "don't worry...I know it's hard to tell from the ground, but the covers are installed underneath the shingles." I don't think he expected that a female homeowner had previously been cleaning her own gutters and was perfectly capable of going up to see that he'd done the work he said he was going to.

I can overlook having to pick up debris from a job if the work is outstanding. If it's sloppy, having to pick up discarded gutter hangers around my yard and bits of cut sheet metal is just annoying!

Such a sweet guy, but he won't get my business again.
