Your gutters are one of the most important aspects of your home. When they are in their optimal condition, they can prevent roofing damage, basement flooding, a heaving driveway, mold, mosquitos, soffit and fascia rot, and landscape erosion. If your home is not equipped with gutters, your current gutter system needs a replacement, or gutter guards needs to be installed you will need to contact a gutter contractor to help you out. To make sure your money is well spent and you find a quality contractor, be sure to ask the following questions:

How Will Your Services Affect My Roof Warranty?

As a homeowner, you should be mindful of your roof warranty. Many gutter companies install gutter guards under the first row of shingles. When this happens, the materials installed during a roofing job will get altered and as a result, void your roof warranty.

Do You Install Gutter Guards As Well?

Therefore, finding a gutter contractor that specializes in the installation of gutters and gutter guards can help you kill two birds with one stone.
