After the long winter months and a vibrant spring, you realize that your gutters aren’t in the best shape. Perhaps they need to be replaced entirely; otherwise, they could allow water to permeate into the house or into the foundation.

However, deciding amongst all the companies out there for gutter repair or replacement can be intimidating. How can you identify and choose the right one? You start by asking the right questions! Read on to learn what some of these important questions are.

Do You Provide an Estimate in Writing?

Many companies are more than happy to give you a verbal quote over the phone, but these days, you can’t always take people at their word. A company may tell you one price beforehand and then charge a different number after the project is complete. Getting an estimate in writing ensures that the company stays within reasonable limits and that you don’t overpay for your gutters. If they don’t give quotes in writing, it’s a red flag.

Do You Have the Required Licensing for Gutters?

No matter what type of work you have done on your house, it needs to be completed by someone who has the appropriate licensing and qualifications. They should also follow strict safety protocols to protect you as the homeowner and their crew. Reputable companies will be more than happy to provide their licensing information to you for verification.

Do You Have References?

Any service company should have a handy list of references they can give you. At minimum, you should be able to find reviews about the company online to give you an idea of what it’s like to work with them. Obviously, approach each statement from a previous client with a grain of salt, but getting their perspective on the experience can help you know whether the company is a good fit for you and your gutter project.

Do You Offer Affordable Financing?

Even though paying to repair or replace gutters can help you avoid even higher costs down the road, if you’re like most households in the US these days, you might not have enough in the bank to pay for the work right away. However, some companies allow you to finance the repair or replacement cost at a low percent interest, which could save you hundreds of dollars!

When you ask deeper questions like these, you’re sure to get the answers you need to select the right company for the job!
