You need gutters that you can count on, therefore it only makes sense to carefully screen your gutter contractors before you hire them. Residential and commercial roofing contractors Mobley Brothers Roofing & Restoration shares the questions you should ask a gutter contractor before you make your decision.
Do You Offer Seamless Gutters?
Seamless gutters are a good investment, thanks to their low maintenance requirements and aesthetic benefits. Typical sectional gutters are built using 10-foot lengths of gutter material, which results in seams in the middle of troughs. These seams require sealant and fasteners, which can get worn out over time. This means they require frequent cleaning and inspections.
Seamless gutters, on the other hand, are custom-cut on-site and installed as one long length of gutter per roof edge. This creates a clean look, but more importantly, it cuts the maintenance requirements down.
Do You Offer Gutter Protection Systems?
Gutter protection systems can further cut your gutter system’s maintenance requirements by preventing leaves and debris from entering your gutters. It also helps minimize clogged gutters, fastener damage from the weight of accumulated debris, and corrosion caused by standing water in the gutters. Gutter protection systems are not standard gutter components and can be installed over existing gutters.
Do You Offer Multiple Gutter Styles?
There are two types of gutter profiles: traditional half-rounds with a “U”-shaped profile and K-style gutters with an angled profile. A gutter contractor who offers both profiles—along with multiple size and material options—can be counted on to provide the right gutters for your home. Use the same logic when choosing residential or commercial roofing contractors; the more options they offer, the more flexible they can be with upgrades.
Do You Have Proper License and Insurance?
Legitimate contractors should have no problem providing verifiable license and insurance information upon request. Make sure the insurance certificate clearly states coverage for general liability and workers’ compensation, which covers accidental property damage and worksite injuries, respectively.
