The type of rain gutters they install, repair. It’s more ideal if your prospect is an expert on different types of gutters to install such as copper, aluminum, galvanized. They should be able to provide extra services such as gutter downspout installation, gutter cleaning.
Liability insurance? Your service provider should have a worker’s compensation and liability insurance.
