A good contractor for installing gutters?

gutter downspoutTerence asked via Twitter:

Any chance you could post a question to your blog for recs on local residential seamless gutter installers?

Gutters are one of those things that might seem like kind of a boring thing for your house. And, you know, they're not exactly a "wow" kind of home improvement. But they can make a difference in keeping water out of your basement or away from your foundation.

So... got a suggestion for Terence? Please share!

If all else fails, you can ask one of the recommended local handymen / contractors for a recommendation :

Hi. My husband has a gutter business and does work all over the capital district. You can check out his website (maltaseamlessgutters.com) or send an email for an estimate: toddpilgram@gmail.com. The office phone is 899-1100.

I did fine with Huff 'n Puff. I got the kind with helmets because I knew I would never get on a ladder and clean out my gutters.

We had good luck with Todd from Malta Seamless Gutters. Quick, efficient, and tidy.

I just had Sherwin Property Mgmt install some new gutters, down spouts, and gutter guards on my house.

I second Malta Seamless Gutters. He was a breath of fresh air in dealing with contractors for my house. He came gave me a quote, I called & asked him a couple questions, I booked him & he ordered the materials, came & installed the gutters when they came in, & I paid him. The install was fast, efficient, & my new gutters w/ the helmets or whatever they are called look great! It was simple!

If you're just installing gutters to get water away from the foundation, I recommend ditching the gutters (they're ugly and high maintenance anyways) and installing a french drain.

We had a great experience with Westside Seamless Gutters (westsidehomeimprovement.net). Alan gave us a no nonsense quote (we have a slate roof so we got the gutter helmet--snow tends to slide off slate roofs with major force, taking your gutters with it. the gutter helmet prevents this from happening) and it was almost $2000 less (yes) than Huff n Puff. His crew came and thoroughly and meticulously installed gutters (it's more of a project than I thought, but maybe that was because of the helmet part).

Say Something!
