Unprofessionalism: Red Flags That You Need to Watch Out For

Unprofessionalism: Red Flags That You Need to Watch Out For

February 25, 2015

Your gutters are an important component of an effective roof system. They ensure that water is redirected away from the roof as well as the foundation of your home. These two parts of your home are vulnerable to water damage. As such, if your gutters are in bad shape and you need them repaired or replaced, it’s best that you hire a reliable company that can help you out. Remember, these kinds of projects can be a hefty investment on your part, and the right contractor will ensure that the job is done properly.

To make sure you don’t select a dubious contractor to work on your gutter in Albany NY, we at Huff ‘N Puff have made a list of red flags that you need to watch out for. These include the following:

  1. Lack of proper licensing—You don’t go to an unlicensed doctor for checkups right? It’s the same way with your gutters. The proper licenses mean that a company is capable of working on your home.
  2. Unprofessional behavior of craftsmen—Using alcohol or drugs on the work site, along with any disrespectful approach towards you or your family is a clear sign that this company isn’t fit to be hired and needs to be replaced.
  3. Unwarranted delays due to tardiness or absences—This kind of behavior is very unprofessional and could end up causing prolonged inconveniences for you as well as costing you more money in the long run.
  4. Failure to follow contract guidelines—Before any work can begin, both parties have to sign a contract. If your contractor is not following that agreement, then that’s a sign that this contractor needs to be replaced with one that can honor its commitments.
  5. Poor communication skills—An inability to communicate can make information difficult to understand on your part. Hire a company that can properly tell you what’s going on in your project.

If your current contractor is doing any of these things, then it may be best to let them go and instead hire a reputable company for gutter installation in Albany NY, like us at Huff ‘N Puff.
