Your gutters are an integral part of your home’s exterior. Together with your roof, your gutters work year-round to divert rainwater away from the important parts of your home such as the foundation and exterior walls. That’s why when it’s time to replace your gutters due to damage or old age, you should never delay. If it’s your first time working with a gutter replacement contractor, here are the things you should expect from a replacement quote.
The Type of Gutters To Be Installed
Nowadays, homeowners are spoiled for choice when it comes to gutters. Because there are so many styles and materials available, it is very important that the written estimate includes the type of gutter system you are having installed. Is your contractor gonna install seamless gutters or will it be conventional seamed gutters? Will your contractor use expensive materials such as stainless steel and copper or something more economical like vinyl? Make sure this is clear before signing the contract.
The Cost of Labor
Reputable gutter contractors should also break down how much they are charging for the actual installation as well as the cost of removing the old gutters (if you are having your old ones replaced) and the cost of cleaning up once everything is in place.
A Detailed Schedule
Lastly, your written estimate should also indicate specific start and completion dates. If your gutter installation contractor states that the job will take a couple of days to complete then, barring any unforeseen delays such as inclement weather, it should not take them a week to finish the job.
