Default eavestrough recommendations

hi everyone,
I'm in a 6m old Claridge SF home in Barrhaven and looking into installing eavestrough. Anyone have any good recommendations on installers in terms of quality/price? Is now a better time to do this or shall I wait till spring time?

Thank you!
Ann

I have used Modern Eavestroughing and personally dealt with Chris. Prices was reasonable and work is not bad. The only thing I would recommend is that you do it in spring, I watched my neighbor did it in January this year and it was a mess, the company didn't have any parking space, had to clear snow from roof and so on.

I second Modern. But I would recommend getting a couple quotes, this way you can talk them down a bit. If you pay cash, that will also get you a better discount.

I would recommend anything except for Modern. The owner is known for going door-to-door, overpricing, and having very poor customer service. Also second rate materials for the same price as better materials from other companies. Look up reviews and you'll see this as well. Their work is apparently not terrible but they are at the bottom of the barrel in terms of service if anything goes wrong.

Highly recommend Precision, Maize, and Bronson Johnson.

Good luck.

We used Maize last year, and Precision about 8 years ago. Both were good.

I went with Maize. They offer good prices but I will say that they have questionable practices.

My attached neighbour and I were having a joint installation. I was waiting on his date confirmation to provide mine. Then I got home one day, maybe a week a after the agreeing on the price, and saw that the installation had been done. I called the company and they informed me that my neighbour had given them the go ahead for this date. After talking to my neighbour, Maize told him I had given them this date, which I had not. Not sure if this is a consistent practice or a miss-understanding at the installation coordination office. It sure left a sour taste in my mouth.
