Blog Reasons to Hire a BBB Accredited Gutter Guard Installer September 2, 2019September 4, 2019Chelsea WelshGutter Protection If you’re looking for a contractor to do work inside or outside your home, it’s a good rule of thumb to check with Better Business Bureau (BBB) to investigate the company’s accreditation and rating. This is also true if you’re looking to hire a gutter guard installer. Once you find what you believe are the best gutter covers for your home, do some research with the BBB on the company or companies in your area who can install them. You’ll want to do this for the following reasons: To learn about the gutter guard installer’s background. The Better Business Bureau has already extensively researched the background of an accredited business. You’ll know they have a good reputation in the community if they’re accredited. You can also verify important information, such as how long the contractor has been in business, and read unbiased reviews from previous customers. To see the complaint history. The BBB has a detailed system for filing and resolving customer complaints. The complaints are made public, as are the resolutions. You’ll be able to see if any complaints have been filed and whether the complaints were resolved in a timely manner – or at the very least, if the gutter guard installer made a good faith effort to resolve the complaint of an unsatisfied customer. To view the company’s grade. The company’s BBB listing also includes a business grade ranging from A+ (highest) to F (lowest), which takes into account the length of time the business has been operating and its history with the Better Business Bureau. Complaints, especially unresolved ones, are a prime reason for a lower rating. Why Else Should You Check With the BBB? Before a company can become BBB accredited, it must pledge to comply with BBB Code of Business Practices, including advertising honestly, fulfilling promises and demonstrating responsiveness to customer complaints. A company that won’t take this simple pledge may not be the company to install your gutter covers; even the best gutter covers won’t do their job if they’re not well-installed.
