Homeowners planning to replace both their roof and gutters in the
next few years should consider doing both projects simultaneously. This
will minimize damage to new gutters during the roofing process. Gutter
contractors should have the necessary knowledge and tools to install
gutters safely and efficiently. For example, gutter contractors should
have ladders equipped with levelers. Levelers are devices mounted to
the legs of a ladder that are used to adjust the length of the legs.
These are used to keep the ladder aligned squarely with the house.
Gutter contractors, like any other company working at the home, should
carry both workers’ compensation and liability insurance. The Home
Reports research identified a few very good choices for gutter work.
