Q) What criteria should I use when deciding on a gutter contractor?
Obviously price is always a major concern. While most of your licensed gutter contractors will be in similar price range for a similar gutter system, you should shy away from any that are extremely out of that range (high & low). Also be aware that different material types, profiles and sizes in gutters & downspouts are not priced the same. You should ask your neighbors and friends about whom they used and if they are satisfied with the gutters system they got. It is generally best to hire a known contractor with a proven track record, as they will most likely still be in business if any service is needed in the future. You should feel comfortable with and have confidence in the level of service you are to receive with whomever you hire. Always hire a licensed contractor who carries liability and workman’s compensation insurance. These will offer you, the customer, protection from personal liability and recourse in the event of something going wrong. Also use local resources such as the Better Business Bureau to inquire about your prospective contractor before hiring.
