Upgrading the gutters on your home is a big investment! Not only are the type of gutters you purchase important, but the method of installation and the quality of the work too! Homeowners should speak to multiple contractors and installers before hiring someone to work on their home. The consultation process allows you to compare prices, find the right products, and find a gutter installer that you feel comfortable with! Keep these questions in mind when you’re talking to potential gutter installers. A reputable installer will be able to confidently answer all of these questions and any others you think of!
Are the Gutters Seamless?
Seamless gutters are a type of gutter that runs from one corner of the home to the other without any seams. Seams are only found where two corners connect. Seamless gutters look better, last longer, and require less maintenance than traditional gutter systems. Ask your installer if they can provide seamless gutters to get the most bang for your buck!
Are Gutter Guards Available?
Gutter guards are installed on top of the gutter system. They act as a barrier between your gutter system and debris that could clog the gutters. Gutter guards will increase the price of installation, but they also eliminate the need to ever clean your gutters again! Ask your installer if gutter guards are available along with your new seamless gutters.
Are Your Employees Insured?
Never hire someone to work on your home that isn’t licensed and insured. Specifically, ask the installer if their insurance covers all of their employees. This protects the homeowner in the event an employee is injured on the job.
How Long Will it Take?
Get a clear timeline for the gutter installation project before it begins. This lets you know when and for how long you should expect to have workers around your home so you can plan accordingly.
Do You Offer a Satisfaction Guarantee?
Offering a satisfaction guarantee is something that isn’t required, but it’s a nice perk! A gutter installer that offers a satisfaction guarantee is confident enough in the quality of their work to stand by it for a set period of time. If you have any issues with your gutters during this time, they’ll be replaced or repaired at no cost to you.
