More about us...
Gilberto Rodrigues has been working in the stucco industry since he immigrated to Canada from Portugal at age 19, in the late ‘80s.
“I arrived in Canada on a weekend and was working by Monday morning. I started out labouring on stucco projects, but early on one of the bosses noticed my potential and asked if I wanted to be a plasterer. They saw I was doing a good job, and made sure I got all the training and experience I needed.
“I worked for companies across the Lower Mainland, getting experience with every type of stucco finish on every type of building. More recently I was partner and co-owner of Cantex Exteriors. I’m very proud of the work I did there over 10 years, and I left on good terms to start my own business with my sons Andrew, David and Steven. Together we formed Gill & Sons Exterior Textures Ltd. in 2014.
“My sons started working for me on their summer breaks, and have grown up in the industry. They started off labouring, and have learned the trade from the ground up. Together we are growing our business.
“Us being a family business benefits customers. We work harder, and we understand each other. The communication between family gives us a home advantage! My sons and I work together as a crew really well, and we pride ourselves on the quality of our work. This business is also their business, and they work really hard at it.”
Gill & Sons employ a caulking specialist to ensure the completed project is waterproof around doors, windows and any other points moisture could enter. This uses the rod and caulking technique to ensure the completed stucco is weatherproof throughout its lifetime. Caulking alone, without the rods, will one day shrink and let in moisture. This is a precision job, and we employ the best. It’s all part of our commitment to top quality service, ensuring our projects are not only stunning but durable.
In a three-decade career Gilberto has applied stucco throughout the Lower Mainland: North Vancouver, West Vancouver, Vancouver, Burnaby, New Westminster, Port Moody, Coquitlam, Richmond, Delta, Surrey, White Rock, Langley and Maple Ridge. Gill & Sons are ready to work in your neighborhood!
