Gutters are an essential part of the whole roofing system that protects the home. Before buying gutters and hiring an installer to attach it to your home, however, you’ll need to know if that gutter is best for you and if the roof insurance repair and gutter installation company you’re talking to is the right choice.
You can find the answers to these concerns by asking the right questions.
Here are some important questions you need to ask gutter installers before you buy gutter parts from them, or hire them to install it for you
What kind of gutters do you have?
Gutters are made of aluminum or galvanized steel and can be purchased in a variety of styles and colors.
Do you use seamless gutters?
Seamless gutters are always better than those with seams, as they allow water to run to the downspout without any hindrance. Gutters should only have seams at the corners, and these seams should be strong enough to withstand heavy downpour over years of use.
Do you have full-time employees that are insured?
A gutter installation company with its own roster of full-time installers is always better than one who hires subcontractors for the job as homeowners won’t have to deal with two separate companies.
What’s more, if these installers are insured, homeowners are assured that the company will shoulder everything the worker needs in the event of an emergency
How long will the job take?
Gutter installation jobs and flat rubber roof maintenance normally take two days to finish, including clean up.
Will you be able to repair unexpected damage?
The gutter installation company should have a carpenter available whenever unexpected repair jobs show up as the roof is being repaired, or replaced.
How do you attach gutters to homes?
Gutters can be attached by nailing or using screws. The latter is better, provided that long screws are used to fasten the gutters. Otherwise, the gutter will sag as the nail or short screws fail to hold on to the rafter, and end up loose.
How can you guarantee my satisfaction with your work?
Trustworthy gutter companies will assure customers of top-quality work, even to the point of not accepting payments until the work has been done satisfactorily and provided warranty on workmanship.
Aside from these, it would be best to contact the Better Business Bureau to check complaints have been filed against a certain roofer.
