What to Ask Before You Hire a Gutter Company

Most homeowners have hired a professional to install or repair something on or within their home. While it’s more expensive to hire a professional compared to doing it yourself, hiring the right company for the job can save you from a DIY disaster. 

Unfortunately, and very rarely, the help you hire can also result in a nightmare. Sometimes when we hire professionals to repair or install something on our homes the work isn’t completed on time or correctly resulting in a headache and possibly more money. 

While it’s convenient to hire someone to do the work, you don’t want to hire just anyone. There are some things you should ask before hiring any professional company including a gutter installation company. Never hire anyone to work on your home if they don’t have the requirements that will protect you as a result of a disastrous nightmare.

Keep reading to learn about what to ask before you hire a gutter company so your next gutter installation service is professional and done right so you can avoid a disaster.


Do they have a good reputation?

Hiring the right company starts with asking them about their reputation or at least doing your own google search. When you hire a gutter installation company with happy customers, they most likely have the experience needed to ensure they’re a reputable company. 

K-Guard has been in business for decades and our expertly trained team of professional installers has the experience needed to install the K-Guard Gutter System correctly. We’re also locally owned and operated and we pride ourselves on that. We have customer reviews from the following websites and invite you to take a look:

Is your company insured?

Any time you hire someone, whether it be an independent contractor or a company to work on your home, make sure they’re insured. Hiring an individual or company that isn’t fully insured could result in a legal nightmare should anyone get injured during the job. Not only does a fully insured company protect their gutter installers but it’ll protect your property and your family should any damage be caused to your home or others. If you’re not sure what to ask for, make sure they possess the following licenses and insurances: liability insurance, state licensure, and worker’s compensation insurance.

K-Guard meets all requirements and will gladly provide you with proof of insurance. We care about the safety of our employees and the individuals whose homes we install our gutter system on. Before you hire us simply ask for our proof of insurance and we’ll happily show you all licenses and insurances.


Do you offer any warranties?

Any gutter installation company you hire should offer warranties on their products but surprisingly, not all of them do. A company should take pride in installing a quality gutter system and their installation and product should be durable and effective enough to come with warranties. 

Here at K-Guard, we offer not one, not two, but three three lifetime warranties because we stand by our product. Our warranties include a no clog, no pull away, and a lifetime paint warranty. When we say our gutter system is clog-free we truly mean it; our lifetime no-clog warranty protects you in the event your system does ever become clogged but trust us – that’ll never happen. Our no pull-away warranty covers your system in the event it pulls away or sags from your home but again, it won’t happen. Because our system is manufactured from heavy-duty aluminum and polymers that can fully support the hood of our gutter system, it’ll never pull away or sag, however, you’re protected in the event it ever does. Finally, our gutter system will never corrode, therefore the paint will never chip. 


Are Your Gutters Seamless?

If you’re in the market for a new gutter system and have been considering installing seamless gutters, make sure the product you select is truly seamless. Seamless gutters should seal out all things from entering your gutter system including pests and debris. Living in Colorado means we have severe weather conditions that can pose a threat for clogging your gutter system so a seamless one is your best option. 

Our gutter system is seamless and is guaranteed to keep all debris out allowing stormwater and meltwater to move freely throughout the gutter system. No seams and no large openings mean all debris and pests stay out regardless of how many trees surround your property or the weather. 

Now that you know the questions you should ask before hiring a gutter installation company, we hope you’ll feel more confident in the company you hire to install your new gutter system. Gutters are an investment that protects your roof and home from water damage and you should choose only the best company to install them. 

K-Guard has years of experience, plenty of happy customers, and a durable and effective product that’s backed by three-lifetime warranties. We’re happy to provide you with proof of insurance and customer reviews if you’re considering our locally owned company to install your seamless gutters. We take pride in the work we do and we want you to feel comfortable should you hire us to install your new gutter system.
