How to choose a rain gutter installer

gutter_installerMost homeowners are interested in two things—competitive rates and reassurance the job will be done well. That’s why there are several factors you should take into consideration when choosing a gutter installer. Here are a few tips to help you find the right one for you:

What type of eavestrough installation do you need?

Some gutter companies specialize in specific types of rain gutter installation. Your choice may therefore depend on whether you want your old gutters replaced or leaf guards installed, existing eavestroughs repaired or solidified, or custom rain gutters or specialty accessories installed.

Another point to consider is that not all companies offer the same eavestroughs widths (5″, 6″, etc.), profiles (K style, fascia style, half-round, and others), and materials (aluminum, copper, etc.). Be sure to check whether the rain gutter installer offers the product you are looking for.

Ask several gutter installation companies for price quotes

As with all home renovations, it is advisable to request a quote from several professionals so you can be sure you are getting a good price for the work you need done. Usually, 3 quotes are enough to give you a good idea of the going rates.

Check references of rain gutter installers

Before making your final choice, it’s a good idea to check the reputation of the rain gutter company you are thinking of hiring. Number of years in business, online customer reviews, and overall reputation and certifications are all points that can help you judge how professional the installers are.

Once you’ve done your homework, you’ll be ready to make the best choice!
