Gutters play an important role in preventing water damage to your home. If you notice rust or leaks in your gutters, you need to replace them right away. In today’s post, Tango & Gatti, a top roofing contractor, lists the rules for a successful gutter replacement project.
Do Your Research
This rule applies to finding the right kind of gutters as well as the right contractor. Your new gutters need to be big enough to handle the amount of rainfall your area receives and durable enough to withstand natural wear and tear. You can also look into your options for installing gutter protection systems, which can help your new gutters last longer.
Vet Your Contractor
Of course, even the most durable gutters won’t last as long as expected if they’re not installed properly. To make sure your gutters work properly, only hire reputable contractors. Ask for references from friends and family or look up a contractor’s online reviews.
The vetting process can be tedious. To make the process more efficient, start by looking for certifications. Certain manufacturers and non-profit organizations award certifications to contractors who’ve met stringent requirements. GAF, for example, awards its prestigious Master Elite™ certification to roofing contractors that have undergone rigorous professional training, while the Better Business Bureau (BBB) rates contractors based on their adherence to ethical business practices.
Compare Quotes and Estimates
While the quality of labor should remain your priority, you should also look for the best deals on new gutters. Compare quotes and estimates from contractors to get the best deal.
Check the Kinds of Warranties Offered
You should also look for the best deals on warranties. Some manufacturers offer extended warranties for roofing systems and accessories installed by certified contractors. For example, the GAF Lifetime ltd. warranty for roofing shingles is one of the strongest protections available.
