Congratulations! You have decided to have gutters installed. Now that you are having gutters installed, let’s talk about a few things you can do to prepare for your gutter installation.
- Research – When making any home improvement it is important to do a little research first. There are several different kinds of gutters to choose from. It will be important to select the one that will best work for your home. Also, do some research on different gutter companies. The least expensive company is not always the best option.
- Inspect for damage – You will want to look for water damage before having the gutter installation contractor come out to your home. You will want to look for rotting wood and signs of mold. You will want to have these items repaired before your gutter installation.
- Repaint before installation – If you want to repaint your home, we recommend you do that before gutter installation. New paint is most unlikely to chip during a gutter installation.
- Hire an expert – The best thing you can do to ensure proper gutter installation and limit future issues is to hire a contractor that is experienced and knowledgeable in gutter installation. We do not recommend homeowners installing their own gutters as many things can go wrong and can actually cause serious damage or injury. Leave the gutter installation to the experts.
By being prepared for your gutter installation you can help to ensure a smooth and flawless installation process. By doing a little research, inspecting for damages, repainting, and hiring someone who knows what they are doing, we are confident that you will have beautiful and fully functioning gutters for many years to come.
