We at Heartland MasterShield, Inc. can guarantee your gutters will be clog-free for the life of your home with a factory money back agreement. Potential customers are curious and ask for costs before allowing a representative to their home. They say, “You can tell me what an average home costs, can’t you? I have a 1500 square foot home; what would it run? How do you charge? What’s the cost per foot? Why can’t you tell me?”
Here are the REAL answers to those questions: Every home is different. They have different sizes, pitches of the roof, number of feet needing protection, degrees of difficulty, different access to gutters & roof, architectural oddities, different landscape problems, and possible gutter or downspout replacement. A Home Improvement Contractor is not Walmart. What does that mean? We do not have a one-size-fits-all price. We are a business. Our products are tailored.
No one can ballpark accurately without looking at the project. There is no reason to guess the cost of gutter covers when a FREE, exact quote is offered. Asking the price before the project is agreed on is not reasonable. Any reputable contractor will give a consumer a fair amount of time to decide whether they wish to do business. (We at Heartland MasterShield give the rest of season.) In exchange for an on-site review and price, Heartland asks for the owners’ time. If there are mutiple decision makers, they should both make themselves available to hear the ins and outs of the offer.
Someone who expects something for free with no committment gets exactly what they paid. Nothing. So with all that said what does a prudent home owner expect for their time?
A professional trained expert in their home will 1) Explore their concerns 2) Inspect the job site, use professional judgement to anticipate problems and measure the home to provide a cost. 3) Leave a written agreement with the complete price spelled out. This includes information on guarantees, products, colors, and specifications. We do not accept deposits and bill only after a job is completed. A written bill is mailed to you with an addressed, postage-paid envelope. I recommend that all small (under $10,000) home improvement projects be handled the same way.
