A common question we hear everyday in our offices is: “A roofer damaged my gutters – who’s responsible?” Easily put – if your damaged gutters are the result of a new roof installation – or if your roofer damaged your gutters – than the roofer is the one who has the gutter liability. When you hire a roofing company to install your new roof – or even to perform some roof repairs – always be sure to get in writing – their acceptance of gutter liability – for any damage incurred in their work.
Remember – gutters, downpipes, and soffits can be expensive to replace – and if you are getting a new roof installed – or maybe even just some minor repairs – it’s your right to ask if the roofing company carries adequate commercial liabiliy insurance – to ensure any damages incurred will not become your responsibility. The roofing company should also be prepared to provide you with a copy of their WCB clearance letter – and their commercial liability insurance policy.
Roofing and gutters tend to go hand in hand. In almost all cases – when a new roof is installed – the homeowner decides to get new gutters as well. It’s a daunting process when you consider that there are over 2 dozen roofing companies in the Lower Mainland, and over 2 dozen gutter installation companies as well. This makes the selection process harder. Contact Dynamic Gutters & Exteriors Ltd. today for your free, no obligation quote today. Need to hire a roofing company?
