Like any home improvement project, you want the best product from the best company for the best price. Aligning all three of these goals is an uphill climb for many homeowners. Harder still, is choosing the right company for a project you know little about.
Because gutter system installation is such a niche trade, most people do not know what to look for or what to expect. That’s why the gutter guard experts at LeafGuard® of South Carolina put together this 4-step road map toward the ideal gutter guard installer for your home!
Step 1: Learn the product
This goes for any homeowner. As the customer, you need to understand the product you are purchasing. This doesn’t mean become an expert on gutter guards, but you should do your homework, learn how a gutter guard works and be prepared to speak on it if you want the most out of your project and your installation team. Reading through a contractor’s website is usually a good place to start.
Step 2: Ask around
Word of mouth is critical when selecting your gutter guard contractor. Asking for the personal opinions of past clients and others in the community can help paint an initial picture of what you’re looking for! Online reviews are also great resources for diligent homeowners to get a feel for an individual. Read our customer reviews now!
Step 3: Meet face-to-face
A vital step in the selection process is meeting a potential contractor in person. You’ll know fairly soon whether he/she is a person you want in and around your home for an extended period of time. This is also a time to address any questions or concerns. The ideal contractor will be able to provide satisfactory answers in a confident, respectful manner.
Step 4: Get an in-home estimate
In addition to meeting in person, it’s also a good idea to get a project estimate. It will give a contractor the chance to survey your gutters and provide an educated estimate of the project cost, and you will have a more accurate understanding of what the installation will require.
