Whatever else you hire Adrian to do, have him wash your sidewalks and driveway!! It’s amazing the difference it makes. It may seem like a lot of money to spend for pressure washing and gutters (his prices are right in line with what I found on the web), but having someone show up on time with all the equipment and experience and help to get the job done is pretty sweet. We’ve never had our house washed before so didn’t know what to expect. It looked pretty good! He re-treated a couple spots I thought had been missed, and washing does remove old paint and spots that need repair. (More Thumbtack projects!) When I hire him again, I’ll ask him to rinse down the doors and windows that get coated with dirt and sand from washing the concrete patio and detail around windows and tight corners carefully, maybe take a second pass around the job to find spots that were extra grimy. Mostly we needed the gutters cleaned. Getting the exterior and concrete clean, too, was a splurge we are happy we made.
