Why does being insured make a difference?
When you choose any contractor to work on your home, you risk being liable for any injury or damage if the contractor is not insured.
When Choosing a Gutter Contractor?
When choosing a gutter contractor to do work on your home, they should be fully insured. If not, you risk being personally liable in the event of injury or property damage. One of the ways to be certain that your contractor has insurance is to call their insurance agent and have them email you a copy of their Certificate of Insurance. We have our Certificates of Insurance listed here on our website.
Don’t be a victim of dishonest contractors. Some contractors may offer to bring you a copy of their policy, this is an old trick of the trade that you need to be aware of. They start paying for the policy at the beginning of the year and stop payments once they obtain the policy. They make copies of their policy to show customers that they have insurance when they are actually uninsured. Be sure to call the contractor’s insurance agent to verify the certificate is in current standing.
