How to Choose the Right Gutter Installation Company in Portland, OR


How to Choose the Right Gutter Installation Company in Portland, OR

Deciding that you need new gutters is a big decision. Deciding against the possibility of a DIY gutter installation is another big decision, but it’s the right one for most people. But then you need to decide who to hire to do a professional installation. This is where many people can hit a wall. What’s important to look for in a gutter installation company? Why can’t you just choose the first one you pick out of a phone book or one with commercials you like? Take a look at what you should know about choosing the right installation company in Portland, OR.

Detailed Estimates

Cleaning out gutters.
You should know what you’re getting into before the gutter work begins.

Money isn’t the only thing, but it’s an important thing. Unless you’re working from an unlimited budget, you need to know what this project will cost you. With a detailed estimate, you’ll have that idea. Better yet, if you get several detailed estimates, you can compare them and make the best decision. Of course, the cheapest is not always better, but neither should you assume that the most expensive choice is automatically higher quality. 

Detailed estimates should include an actual inspection of your roof. The contractor should be able to give you information like a payment schedule and a date of completion. Don’t trust a company that tries to give you an estimate over the phone. It would be best if you also clarified whether each company’s estimate includes the removal of the old gutters or not – some companies do, and some do not. 

Choose A Business with a Track Record

Every business has to begin somewhere, and a new business may be just as good as a long-running one. But it’s also true that a long-running and established business will have proven that they can stick around and stand by their work. So just by staying in business and a specific area, they would be showing that their work is good enough to enable them to stay in business. 

You should be looking for a company that has a proven track record of success in the area. You especially want them to be able to show references from past clients. You should also be able to check out some of their past work and find out whether their customers remain happy with their installation. 

Licensed, Insured, and Bonded

Installing gutters.
Ensuring that your contractors have the right licensing, bonding, and insurance protects you as well.

It should go without saying that you should want contractors working on your home to be licensed, insured, and bonded. But many homeowners aren’t aware that they should ask for proof of those things.

You need to know that your contractors have the correct licensing to do the work you want them to do legally and that if an accident happens on your property, you won’t be forced into bankruptcy because the company’s workers are insured. Don’t be shy about asking for proof.

I recently had the Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet installed on my house. It not only looks amazing, but the guys arrived on time, were professional and efficiently got the job done. I am very satisfied with Gutter Helmet's attention to detail and fulfilling their work as promised. I will definitely tell my neighbors about the Gutter Helmet.
I have had Gutter Helmets for 20 years. In all that time I've never had a problem until recently a bird's nest found its way into one of my gutters. The installer who came to replace the product was the same installer from 20 years earlier. Now that's impressive. Everyone at Gutter Helmet inclusive of the office staff were professional and a pleasure to work with.
Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet just replaced our roof and we could not be more satisfied. The crew showed up early, worked all day and stayed late, were professional and caring regarding the project and the surrounding impact it had on our property and home. They completed the roof quickly and it looks simply amazing!
VERY happy with our entire experience adding Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet to our house. Installing this was a great value for us. The gutters are working perfectly in heavy downpours and with year-long leaves and debris coming down from our river birches. Terrific customer service and a first class product.
We needed our roof repaired due to wind damage. After several quotes, Gutter Helmet was the only company that went into our attic to look and see if more damage had occurred. If it wasn't for them taking the extra time to look at everything, we would have had rotting wood under our new roof. They were very professional and gave a fair quote.
We just had Gutter Helmet installed on our gutters and couldn't be happier. They provided us with useful information about Gutter Helmet and cleaned up everything, leaving no mess behind. We definitely recommend Gutter Helmet to anyone considering this product.
