Great service, great people

Our experience with Roost Solar was exceptional from the start with a clear picture of the process and the solar layout to the start up and connecting to BC Hydro. Everything was explained and done so we could understand. Roost was able to accommodate all our needs along with helping on additional work that came up with great service.

Pricing was fair, quality was exceptional, and the service was outstanding.

They made sure the system was laid out to be very efficient and compact and kept the street appeal looking great. I would and am recommending Roost Solar to anyone who asks.

Great Service and Great People.”

Extremely knowledegable and creative

…excellent to work with from start to finish. Throughout the entire process they took time with me to fully understand the project, the costs and work through different options. I found them to be extremely knowledgeable and even creative of where we could put the system as my house roof was not suitable.

Just as important, others told me to calculate production of the units at 80% of what I was quoted. I am actually getting 110% of what Roost proposed to me. Its a true sign of their honesty and managing customers expectations. This is rare. In addition, they knew we were trying to manage project costs and throughout the entire process I could see how they were working with us to keep costs appropriate. I was thoroughly impressed.

I will refer and recommend Roost to anyone I talk to as i could not imagine doing this project with a better experience.

If you are considering a Solar system, make sure you reach out to Roost for a proposal and give serious consideration to working with them. Although their costs might be higher than others trying to get into the industry, it is a cost that is well spent and worth every bit of it. Well done to the entire Roost team and a tremendous thank you from me and my family.”

Couldn’t be happier

Steve and his team were a pleasure to work with! They have done an incredible job on the installation, were very professional, and took the time to make sure that we understood everything. Our house started generating more power than it uses within a day! We couldn’t be happier with our new solar system. I highly recommend Roost Solar.

Attention to detail

Some contractors are an absolute pleasure to work with, and Roost Solar is at the top of that list. They provided thorough quoting, excellent communication throughout construction, and paid attention to the even the smallest details. Thanks for the great work guys!

Really understood our needs

Roost Solar did a fantastic job installing our residential solar panels. We found that Steve from Roost Solar really understood our needs. He provided us multiple configurations to achieve our renewable energy goals. We chose the one that fit our renewable energy needs and only required panels on both sides of the garage roof. Thanks Steve for this fantastic job – we are more than happy.

On time and on budget

Stephen Russell and his crew at Roost Solar delivered exactly what they said they would. He took the time to explain in lay terms every aspect of the project and what we could expect. His quote was detailed and complete. The project was finished on time, on budget and the crew were very respectful and friendly throughout the process. Stephen provided references which gave us the confidence to use his company. We would not hesitate to recommend Roost Solar. In fact when we do the second phase of my system (storage) I will have them back.

Professional team

I was very impressed with the professionalism of the team during the entire process of getting our grid tied array, from the planning to the quotes to the actual install. I have no hesitation in recommending Roost, and I am very happy with our array.

Accurate production estimates

Steve and the Roost Solar crew made it easy to get into solar. When I first approached him about the possibility, Steve gave me a highly detailed estimate based on Google Maps, our current consumption, ROI… all of which is turning out to be right on the money. Steve is also great to work with, does what he says he’s going to do, when he said he was going to do it. We’re extremely pleased with the service and love being part of the solar ‘movement’!

No pressure to buy

Stephen was very knowledgeable, answering all of our questions without any pressure to buy. His crew were some of the best trades we’ve had at our home – polite, professional, efficient and friendly. I highly recommend Roost if you’re moving to solar!
