Water damage is a big problem for homeowners and can be a huge expense in the long run. Putting gutters on your home or fixing the existing gutters can keep the water damage at bay and can also protect your lawn. You will need to hire a gutter professional to do this job for you but you don’t want to waste your money on someone that you doesn’t work properly or doesn’t meet your expectations so we are here to tell you what you need to know if they have before you hire a gutter professional.
The Proper Licenses And Insurance
If you come across a company that promises to do your gutters at a low price but they do not have proper coverage and insurance, you should just walk away. The insurance protects you and the company in case something happens on the job or they damage your house in some way. (We have all the proper coverage!)
When hiring the company, always make sure to ask them what training and experience they have had on houses like yours and with gutters in general to get a better idea of what you’re getting into. (All of our installers have over 20 years of experience! A good gutter installer is few and far between; Our company has an installation team of 3- we focus on quality over quantity.)
This is a very important part of the hiring process that a lot of people overlook and that is asking for references or reading online reviews on how this company performed and whether or not they are trustworthy. This will save you a lot of headache while putting gutters on your house because even a fully licensed and insured company that has all of the training you were looking for could be shady. (We have 5 STAR ratings on Facebook, Google Places, and Angie's List!)
The Proper Equipment
Any gutter professional you hire should have the equipment that is necessary for completing the job safely. If they don’t have it or have very old, worn equipment, it might be a better idea to take your business elsewhere. (We have state of the art gutter machines and keep our installers equipped with the best tools to complete the job!)
Guarantees and Warranty
Any legitimate company should offer at least a thirty day guarantee and many offer up to a sixty day guarantee when it comes to cleaning. If they are doing the installation, make sure that they have a warranty that fits your standards for the product and the install on your house. This way if you have problems down the line you will still be protected. (We have a one year labor warranty and all of our products come with at least a 50 year backing!)
It shouldn’t be too hard to find a legitimate, hard-working gutter company no matter where you live. It is simply a matter of knowing what to look for and which questions you need to ask in order to protect yourself and your home against less-than great workmanship. If you ask these questions, you should be very pleased with the service you receive. Contact the seamless gutter experts today at Gutters Unlimited for more information!
