Sometimes it takes inclement weather, (such as a rainstorm or hurricane), for Tacoma homeowners to appreciate the important role played by gutters in home protection. Should such weather find your gutters blocked, you’ll be facing huge repair bills as your home and the entire compound could suffer extensive water damage. Regular gutter cleaning is therefore important. Even more important is the contractor you engage to carry out this crucial task.
In appreciation of the fact that they might not have the expertise or equipment to conduct efficient and thorough gutter cleaning, many homeowners entrust this work to pro cleaners. Before hiring a contractor, you need assurances that he or she will do a sterling job and do the work safely. What then do you need to look for to make sure that you engage a contractor who’ll perform a great job?

Is the company insured?
Gutter cleaning carries a considerable amount of risk and an exercise that goes awry could have very undesirable consequences. If a member of the crew cleaning your gutters falls off a ladder or receives some injury while working on your premises, you’ll be held liable unless the contractor is insured. Working with an uninsured contractor could therefore see you paying thousands of dollars in hospitalization and compensation and you must therefore obtain proof that your Gutter Cleaning Tacoma contractor carries adequate insurance.
Guarantees and warranties
Granted, gutters will naturally acquire new debris even after they have been cleaned unless you install some gutter protection but this does not mean that contractors should not guarantee their work. Reputable companies will usually guarantee their work for a specific period of time and you should seek such guarantees before hiring a contractor. Should the company be replacing old gutters, find out if they provide warranties for the products they use. Contractors who cannot back up their work with guarantees and warranties should be avoided as you’ll be on your own should problems arise after a cleaning job.
Your Gutter Cleaning Tacoma job should ideally be done by a local company and, before hiring a contractor, you should find out how the company is rated by people it has served in the past. On the company’s website, look at the testimonials that have been written by past clients. A broader search online will tell you whether the company has had performance or other issues with past clients and this will help you make an informed decision.
