Choosing the right contractor can be a daunting task but to me it really comes down to a couple of simple stipulations.

First of all you need a contractor that has the experience to handle the installation and all the problems that will arise. Every job presents unforeseen difficulties and problems regardless of how straightforward it initially appears to be. The key is to have a contractor that has the experience, creativity, ability, and most importantly the care to figure out the best solution and then execute it.

Which brings us to what I really consider the most important factor when choosing a contractor. This applies to any contractor, fencing contractors, gutter contractors, etc this rule is across the board. The contractor and installation crew must have the desire to perform good quality work, and not just because the customer is paying for the service. The desire to get the job done right must be first and foremost because you take pride in your work and you’re only as good as the last job you did.

We’ve done small fence installations, sometimes only requiring the construction and installation of one gate and we’ve done huge installations involving hundreds and hundreds of feet of various styles of fencing. Regardless of the size and scope of the job the mindset never changes. Provide the highest quality installation possible and create something that you are proud of.

The same applies to gutter installation. I can recall one installation that literally involved one foot of gutter and one downspout all the way up to installing hundreds of feet of gutter at the new AW Brown Charter School campus. The same mindset applied at both jobs and we completed installations that I will be proud of for years to come.

When you choose a contractor, choose wisely and remember the cheapest guy out there probably won’t provide the best installation BUT at the same time the most expensive guy won’t guarantee a great installation either. Check out your contractor’s website, look at pictures, but most importantly talk to him and make sure that there is a legitimate care and concern to make sure the job is done right.
Best of luck! Matt
