As of Monday April 15, The Grove Victoria has moved!!!
Yep, the Grove Victoria is now open for action right in the middle of the Crossroads of Commerce, where North, South, East and West converge to form the best roofing supply location the world has ever experienced.
Yes roofers of Greater Victoria, we did this for you!!!
Unit #101 862 Cloverdale Avenue is the address and the phone number is still the same 250 391 8701. Darcy, Bud and the rest of the gang are jacked, need I say more...
What's happening this May at the Grove?
So, as I was saying to my friend Sting the other day, "Dude, why didn't you stay in roofing?"
Sting replied, "I was really good at it, yes and I loved being outside, yes and nothin' made me happier than standing on the top ridge of a 14/12 pitch thinking, look what I've just done!"
Sting's eyes then glazed over as he became lost in a flood of unequalled roofing memories. Several minutes passed before I spoke again.
"Sting, old boy, wake up." I said.
He shook his head to clear his thoughts.
He looked at me with that all too familiar grin and said, "I left roofing because I hated doing the tear-offs. Its as simple as that."
"Wow..." was all I could muster in response.
Sting grinned and said, "You know Cedar Gee, if I had been given the opportunity to use one of those awesome tear-off shovels that the Grove now sells, who knows what would of happened to my roofing career, eh?"
"I believe you might have made roofing history, Sting. Of that I am sure!" I was trying to jack up his spirits. My good friend was looking sad.
"No regrets though Cedar Gee, I know what I could have been. I am somewhat comfortable with the fact that I wound up being a simple musician. It's just that I have completley run out of do-overs. And that my friend, still gnaws at me to this day."
I left him with this, "Cheer up old boy, things could've been worse."
"How's that?' he asked.
"You could have gone with your original name for the band, remember that?
"No, please remind me."
"The Shinglers 3"
"Oh yes, I remember now, The Shinglers 3, seriously though, its not that bad..."
I just shook my head and looked away. Roofers don't make the same mistake as my musician friend. Grab a Tear Off Tool from the Grove and make your own roofing history!
Goodbye Algae Stains and Non Algae Resistant Shingles
Say Hello to Clean Roofs (No Black Streaks) Say goodbye to the non Algae Resistant shingle.Begining in this month of January both CertainTeed and IKO have eliminated the Landmark and the Cambridge plain versions.Now these are only available in the Algae Resistant format. Say goodbye to those ugly back streaks on roofs. GAF and BP have already done it so can Malarkey be far behind with putting the Highlander Plain Jane out to pasture? All's I can say is, "It's about time!"
Cedar Grove Surrey Closed Saturday May 18
Yes its one of those Long Week End weekends. That means everybody that works here is now free to attend the Cloverdale Rodeo Parade. This is one of my can't miss dates on the "Things To Do" calender! What could be better than getting up early to go look at horses, clowns, marching bands and best of all...Politicians. Oh boy, I can hardly wait.
And fellow Groveweegians, please be prepared to stay late after the parade as I have volunteered us all for post parade clean up duty!!! Indeed this will be my favourite part of this May Long Weekend.
We'll see you there...
