I hired Nick's to clean my exterior windows. I have done it myself for years but it was a struggle because not all my windows are easy to access and, over time, the water spots were impossible for me to remove regardless of what I tried. The appointment was easy to set up and the young man who did the work was polite and efficient. He went the extra mile on one window that was particularly stained. It now sparkles along with the rest. I'm very pleased and would recommend this service to anyone.

There are a few good reasons why Craig Talenko and the crew at CB Tree are so busy – excellent work ethic and results, and good pricing. Craig and his team just completed an impressive job of pruning 3 large maple trees in my back yard. The largest, a silver maple, grows disturbingly close to the house and looms over both our own roof and our neighbour’s. The limbs of this tree were left badly bowed by the ice storm in Dec 2013. On windy days, these limbs would contact both roofs, leaving debris and knocking against the neighbour’s chimney. The combined canopy of the 3 trees was also affecting the overall health of the lawn and garden. Craig discussed with us what we would like done and made recommendations that would ensure the continued health of these trees while minimizing the threat of large branches breaking off. He is very friendly and easy to talk to. Once we agreed on everything, the crew immediately set to work. It was a marvel to watch how professionally they managed the process of removing the largest of limbs dangling over the roof. Not for the faint of heart to watch, but not a shingle was damaged. They also cut the wood into fire logs, which they stacked neatly for us to use. After the last branch was chipped, the crew meticulously cleaned up the yard and driveway too. Our 3 maples look trim and solid now, with lots of space for the wind to pass through without threat, and the yard feels much bigger now with the enhanced exposure to the sky and sun. I really can’t wait for spring now to see everything come into leaf.

Company Response

It was a pleasure doing your job and returning to my neighbourhood on the street where I first started my business back in 1973. I can't believe I've been in business for 43 years now, it seems like only yesterday when we were passing out flyers on this street, hoping the phone would ring. Thank you for the work and the memories. Your trees look great and we really appreciate the winter work. I was getting tired of eating just gravy and bread. (Just kidding)
All the best, see you next time, Craig.
