You’re a homeowner. You’ve put a lot of blood, sweat, tears (and dollars) into your home. Then Santa comes along, has a little accident and damages your gutters. Are you going to let just any ol’ amateur repair your gutters? Or are you going to go with a trained professional – one that you can be sure knows what they’re doing?
The choice is clear, right? Well, unfortunately, a lot of homeowners opt for the amateur option. Gutters are a vital necessity for protecting your home and they must be installed correctly or you risk damage to one of the largest investments you may ever make. Many homeowners get seduced by the cheap prices that amateurs offer.
We’ve heard countless stories of gutter installations and repairs gone awry from amateurish efforts. So, what should you look for when you’re seeking a gutter company to keep your home safe and protected? Here are some tips:
- Licensed and insured. Make sure your gutter company carries general liability insurance, carries worker’s compensation insurance and is registered with the state as a home improvement contractor. Also, check to see if they have any complaints filed against them.
- Professional appearance. Check to see if your gutter company look profession. Make sure the company has a professional-looking website, Google profile, and active social media channels.
- Local vs. chain. Are you using a national or a regional chain? Be careful – usually, large corporate chains only care about one thing: cold, hard profit. Their only purpose is to generate revenue for stakeholders. More than likely, they are not, their workers care about one thing: getting to the next job to make the bosses happy. They may even charge an additional fee to come back out! Be sure to go local. At Gutter Boyz of Kentucky, we live and work in the area.
