DIY or Hire a Professional?
When you live in Louisiana, it’s important to have a gutter system that works well for the climate you live in. When you don’t maintain your gutters, you may end up spending more money to fix the damage. Your gutters should be inspected regularly and they should be cleaned as needed when you notice debris trapped inside. You could do this part on your own but if you don’t like to climb ladders, you may be embarking on a difficult and sometimes dangerous project. Your gutters need to have consistent attention whenever possible so it’s important that you have a professional to do this project if you prefer.
Interview Gutter Cleaning Services
You will want to start interviewing potential companies immediately so no debris gets trapped in your gutters and ruins your gutter system. Once you narrow your list down, you will need to start contacting the companies to inquire about the services they offer. You need to know what you are requiring from a contractor before you call. This will help the contractor determine if he/she can handle your project based on your conversation over the phone. The gutter cleaning company will then let you know what time they can work on your project and if they will need one or more contractors. The contractor will also be able to go over how they will perform the job.
Once you have finished the conversation, you should receive a written quote from them stating everything you went over during the conversation. This will guarantee the work and what the cost will be. You may be required to pay something, if not all, upfront. If the professional will only accept cash, you may need to reconsider.
You want to choose a company that you have searched online for, has two or more positive reviews, and meets all your needs. Be sure that everything is written down on paper so there is no misunderstanding. Don’t sign any contract until you read through it very thoroughly because once you sign it, you are then obligated.
