They are responsible for diverting water away from your exterior, preventing water damage to your walls and foundation. If they are no longer in optimal condition, you need to replace them as soon as possible before they do damage to your home. To make sure your money is well spent and you find trust worthy gutter contractors to work on your project, Advantage Seamless Gutters lists four questions you should always ask. 1. Do You Install Seamless Gutters? Sectional gutters are a now dated system that have only two benefits: cheap and readily available. They come in sections, though, which means they are at risk of developing leaks as they grow apart as time goes by. That’s why you should ask if your prospective gutter can install seamless gutters. We’re proud to offer high-quality and custom-built seamless gutters. Our gutter systems are made from high-grade aluminum that can withstand the intense heat and rain and come with a 25-year warranty. 2. Do You Have References or Testimonials? The best way to gauge if the contractor is right for your project is by asking for references and testimonials. You’ll want to know if their previous customers were satisfied with the job they did. Apart from the selected references your prospective contractor offers, do your own research by checking online or asking other homeowners in your neighborhood. 3. Is Your Company Insured? Always hire a gutter company that has insurance. It’s actually a requirement so they can work on ladders, and will be covered by liability and worker’s compensation. Advantage Seamless Gutters is a insured, family business. We want you to have peace before and after your gutter-installation project. 4. Do You Offer Gutter Cleaning? Finally, you should work with a contractor that offers gutter cleaning services. While it might seem unnecessary, cleaning the gutters regularly ensures that the structure properly diverts water away from your roof and the rest of your home by keeping it free of debris. At Advantage Seamless Gutters, we are a full-service gutter company. From seamless gutter installation to expert gutter cleaning, we are the local contractor you can count on to get the job done right the first time around.
