It’s important to carefully vet your gutter contractor before hiring them. One way to help narrow down your options is to limit your search to local contractors.

Here are the advantages of going local:

Faster Vetting

Local contractors have local references. You can ask friends and neighbors if they’ve worked with the contractor, and chances are someone has. A local contractor’s success depends on building and maintaining a strong reputation in the community, after all!

Quality Service and the Personal Touch

Home improvement projects are essentially a collaboration between you and your contractor. That’s why it’s important that you hire a contractor you can get along with.

One advantage of hiring a local contractor is the personalized service they provide. Local contractors have a reputation to uphold in their local community. As such, you can rest easy knowing you can expect quality service and workmanship from them.

Familiarity With the Local Climate and Building Codes

Local contractors are familiar with the local climate and building codes, which means they can give better recommendations. For instance, local contractors should have a good idea of how much rainfall your area receives within a year. And as such, they should be able to accurately gauge how much capacity your gutter system needs to properly divert rainwater to the drains.

Contractors may recommend a rain gutter guard system if you live in a rainy area. Gutter covers prevent leaves and twigs from entering and clogging your gutters, ensuring rainwater flows to the drains unimpeded. Keep in mind that most gutter guards can only reduce, not eliminate your gutter’s maintenance needs. That is except for Gutter Helmet®, the only product on the market with a Never Clean Your Gutters Again® guarantee.
