Chose Avenue Road Roofing over two other companies that bid to install a solar powered Velux skylight because Avenue had already done my roof. They were a little slow in ordering the window but it was partially because I was out of the country. They did install it on the day and time requested and it was done in about 4 hours. They left the place impeccable. The installer did not know how the machine functioned but he had Tyson call me before the end of the day and he forwarded the entire manual to me within 12 hours. Before the bill was sent, an inspector came to verify everything was in order. He pointed out another problem with the eaves troughing and arranged to have an estimate for it. They are a little more expensive than other places, but they are very reliable.

My power head was not working and I took it in to see what was not working. The fellow who attended me, realized I was using the wrong head for my carpet and explained what each head was for. He also diagnosed that the power head was not the culprit, but the shaft with the electrical line. So I had a much cheaper repair--and on the first trip there! The people there are so friendly with everybody and qive quick acknowledgement to each one who enters the store. It makes me feel right at home there.

I bought the Harman microfibre table cloths and napkins that are advertised as spill resistant. Before opening the table cloths, I tested a napkin with ketchup, mustard and tomato sauce and let it sit for 15 minutes. Then I tried to wash the stain out, but I could not get it to come out. Bleach might do it, but that cuts short the life of the table cloths and only works on white. Definitely not a good buy.

The contractor who built my house made custom made filing drawers. However, my files would not fit, so I needed a little piece to make the size of the files adjustable. It is so annoying ot have drawers that do not hold hanging files properly. I went with a piece from another drawer in another location and asked for it at the showroom. The receptionist could not find the piece, but when she called the salesman, it took it all of 5 seconds to give her the number. It took longer for the stockroom to pick it off the shelf though, as there were 5 or 6 people ahead of me. The pieces were perfect and very cheap. Well worth searching them out so I coudl use my filing drawers more effectively.

If you want to buy cutlery by the dozen, you can have a great choice at a good price. Everything in the store is restaurant quality so you can pay at much or little as you want. Pots and pans are superb quality as are the knife selection. I recently bought the Browne Ellipse which looks very nice, but the dishwasher leaves them spoty (not it is not a shortage of rinse). When you handle them, they also mark easily, since there is no design to hide spots. There are no soup spoons to match but I did find a copycat version in Chinatown - Spadina. The plates --also by the dozen--are excellent quality, as are the glasses. It is worthwhile seeing what is there so you can ensure you have a good quality if you decide to buy elsewhere.

I dropped in trying to replace the water deflector on the bottom of the shower door yesterday, expecting to be there for quite a while, but I was out of the shop within 8 minutes of my arrival, custom cut product in hand. I didn't even have time to take a good look at their showroom of doors. |I like their no-nonsense approach. The previous time I had gone, they did not want to sell me a piece because I could not describe it adequately enough to ensure I woudl receive the precise part I needed. Thanks for resisting! It taught me to look better at what I wanted. This time I came armed with a good picture and the exact size. I really don't like it when somebody is ready to sell me a piece, just to sell it. It is a little tricky to find because it is hidden within a complex of small commercial shops. It shows up on your phone map APP though.

Tap Phong is the best place to buy dishware when you have a short budget. They sell stainless steel serving ware, and a multitude of utensils, baskets, gadgets for the home, Chinese dishware, glassware, and so on. I was not happy with the table linen I bought there but you can find copycat versions of the Browne Elipse cutlery. It was the only place I could find matching soup spoons. Staff is fairly helpful, but not always as there is sometimes a language barrier if you do not speak Chinese. But there are lots of staff who are fluent. Don't be dismayed by the rows and rows of items. You can find what you want.

I regularly use this store to buy household items. The staff is always very knowledgeable about items and go the extra mile to get you what you want. Prices are great, and you can order online with free delivery. They have so many kitchen items that you can choose the quality you want. Dining table cloths are especially good here and very easy to maintain. Be sure to check here before you buy elsewhere.

This store is on my way to work, but I generally do not get helpful service when I am looking for items. Sometimes staff send me to the wrong place in the store instead of asking somebody else. However, the auto shop has better service. I had to change my windshield wiper but arrived the day computers were down. I expected to be sent away but the man at the counter offered to go and look visually for the piece. When I pulled into the garage, the manager was not happy but the salesman came out and took my windshield. he came back in 3 minutes with the right one and installed it for me. In the meantime 2 mechanics came over to ask if I needed help. After paying cash, I got into my car, and a young fellow offered to turn my car around since it was a tight spot--which I accepted. He was delighted to show his skills off, and he 10-point turn saved me a lot of turning! So generally I go to Laird and Eglington when I need something since service is regularly better.
