You may not think much about the eavestroughs in your Brampton home until they need cleaning or replacing, but they do an important job by helping to divert water away from your home and preventing damage.
And because eavestroughs are so important, you want to do your research before hiring an eavestrough installation company. You want to make sure that the job is done right so you won’t have to worry about potential water damage.
Here are five things you should know before hiring an eavestrough installation company:
1. How long has the company been in business?
Ideally, you want to work with a company or contractor that has been in the eavestrough installation business for many years. This will help ensure that they are good at what they do.
Someone who just started in the business will have a learning curve to go through, and they may be more likely to make mistakes.
2. Are they local?
Even with the most experienced team, there is a chance you might have problems or need to follow up with them for some reason.
If the company is located in Brampton, that follow up will be considerably easier for those located in Brampton, Mississauga, Etobicoke, Oakville, Milton and other close by areas.
As a local business, Studio Aluminum takes a lot of pride in our work. We know that when we work on a customer’s eavestroughs, siding or fascia, it will be viewed by their neighbours.
The better job we do, the more likely we are to get referrals!
3. Do they have eavestrough installation specialists?
Any contractor that specializes in a particular area of home improvement will be able to give you a higher standard of service than one who does not specialize. Not only will the job be of higher quality, but it will also likely take less time to complete, and you will be happier with the overall results.
Eavestrough installation is a specialized skill, and a poorly done job can result in leaks, which can cause serious damage to your home.
4. Is their team in-house?
If you can, it is best to hire an eavestrough installation company whose team is 100% in house. When companies use subcontractors, it can lead to communications breakdowns and unnecessary delays.
It is also possible that you will end up getting subcontractors working on your home who are not as experienced as you would like.
Before signing a contract with any company, ask them whether they will be subcontracting the work or doing it with their in-house team.
5. What do their online reviews say?
All companies will tell you that they are great, but what are their customers saying? Online reviews from Google, Facebook and other sources are an excellent way to see whether a company’s customers are happy with the work they’ve had done.
During your research of eavestrough installation companies in Brampton, be sure to check out some online reviews.
