Questions to Ask Your Contractor Before Your Gutter Project

By June 24, 2016October 18th, 2023No Comments

Your gutters are one of the most important elements of your home’s water management system. They redirect rainwater to your downspouts, protecting your foundation, siding, roof, fascia, and soffit from damage. That’s why choosing a gutter installer for your new gutters is an important decision. Gutter Helmet of Northern Minnesota explains some important things you need to ask your contractor.

What gutter products do you use?

The quality of your gutters or gutter shields in Grand Rapids, Minnesota, will determine the performance of your home’s water management system. Ask your gutter contractor about the products they plan to use on your home; if possible look at some samples. We use heavy 32 gauge aluminum seamless gutters, the strongest brackets and screws, and dropt tubes for downspouts. These are durable, so rest assured your gutters will function even under bad weather.

What’s your experience?

There are many amateur installers around who don’t have the necessary knowledge, skill, and experience. To reduce your risk, we recommend working with an established company like us. As a local contractor with many years of experience, we know how to handle any kind of gutter installation. We know which products to use for our area’s weather and we can point you to local references.

Do you provide gutter protection?

Investing in gutter shields in Grand Rapids, Minnesota, is a great choice because gutter shields prevent gutter clogs. Gutter clogs form when physical debris gets into your gutters and blocks the water. This causes overflowing gutters and water damage. Our Gutter Helmet® gutter protection system will stop this from happening. It completely covers your gutters and has no vertical openings, blocking debris from entering. Thanks to its patented design, however, water still gets through your gutters.

Gutter Helmet of Northern Minnesota has over 50 years of experience helping homeowners in Grand Rapids and the surrounding areas. We use only the highest quality products and work with the best people in the industry to take the worry out of your gutter investment. In addition, we are also an authorized dealer of Gutter Helmet, the leading gutter protection system in the country. Call us at (866) 937-3508 to learn more about working with your gutter installer.
