What is a Gutter Apron and Do You Need It?

Before you hire anyone to clean your gutters (or do any work on your home or property), there are some important questions to keep in mind for choosing the right company.

Are they licensed?

Make sure that the company or contractor you hire is licensed in your state to ensure quality work and to make sure that you’re protected as a customer.

Are they insured?

You’ll want to make sure the company carries both liability and workers’ compensation insurance. Liability insurance will protect you and your property against any accidental damage that may occur at the hands of the technicians working on your gutters. Workers’ compensation insurance will protect you against any legal liability in case someone working on your property is injured. You may request proof of these documents.

Do they offer a guarantee?

Nothing is worse than paying someone to do a job only to be disappointed in the results. Find a company that guarantees their work, because this will protect you against subpar work, and it’s a sign of integrity on their part.

Is gutter cleaning or maintenance the company’s main focus?

Consider whether the company focuses specifically on gutter work or if they advertise gutter service as something of an add-on. Chances are, if their main focus isn’t on gutters, they are not the right company for the job.

Does the company have a solid reputation?

Consider how you heard about the company, because you want to make sure they maintain a good reputation. Do they have experience in the industry? Have you heard about them from friends or neighbors?
