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 Best Pick Reports research identified a few very good choices for gutter work.
