What you need to consider when hiring fascia and gutter installers
Here are a few things that you need to consider when hiring professional fascia and gutter installers.
Calling the pros
Gutters and fascia play an important role in protecting your home’s roof from water damage. But like many parts of your home, your fascia and gutters may experience wear and tear. Sometimes you can patch them up, but other times, you may need to replace them completely.
Replacing gutters and fascia isn’t an easy thing to do, especially if you’re not very savvy with these kinds of repairs. Also, replacing your gutters and fascia will require you to climb up onto your roof, and this can be very dangerous for someone without experience.
But don’t worry—you can always call fascia and gutter installers! They’re pros and they have all the skills and equipment needed to get the job done. All you need to do is find the right contractor for your home.
What you need to consider before calling the pros
Here are a few things you need to consider before hiring fascia and gutter installers for the job:
Reputation and experience
The best thing about hiring fascia and gutter installation contractors is that they have years of experience. Also, if they’ve been in the industry for a long time, they will have a good reputation. When you have an experienced and reputable contractor on the job, you can be assured that they get the job done the right way.
Licensing and insurance
Accidents can happen, even when repairs are being done to your home. And when an accident happens, you may be liable for damages. Fortunately, contractors have insurance and licencing, which assure you of their reliability and protect you from having to pay money if any kind of accident happens when they’re working.
Worried about the materials your new gutters and fascia will be made out of? Well, good gutter and fascia contractors only use products made from the highest quality materials for the job. They always use premium-quality gutter and fascia that are supplied by reputable suppliers in the industry, such as COLORBOND.
Communication is crucial when you hire someone to work on your home. Experienced fascia and gutter installation contractors will always communicate effectively with you, taking into account your unique and specific needs, and give you advice whenever you may need it. They’ll keep you updated on the project at every stage.

Frequently asked questions
If you notice any visible damage to your fascia and gutters, like corrosion, sagging, detached gutters, water leaks, and overflows, you may need to replace them. Some of these damages may not be very obvious, so it would be a good idea to have a professional take a look at them first.
Well-maintained facia and gutters can last for up to 20 years. This isn’t set in stone as certain external factors, like bad weather, can affect the lifespan of your fascia and gutters.
Gutters will need to be cleaned out at least twice a year and any loose screws and damaged parts will need to be replaced. For fascia, an annual paint job should help keep them in good condition.
