The Maryland Home Improvement Commission (MHIC) issues licenses to contractors who have demonstrated satisfactory knowledge, experience, insurance, and financial stability. All MHIC-licensed contractors support the MHIC’s Guaranty Fund, which will pay to complete (or re-do) a project if you engage a licensed contractor and your contract is not fulfilled. The Guaranty Fund does not protect the customers of contractors who are not licensed. Go to www.dllr.state.md.us/license/mhic/ and click “License Search.”

Beware. Many homeowners wish for a gutter cover product that would end gutter maintenance. Products currently in the marketplace have one or more of the following problems: (1) overshoot - so much of the gutter is covered that water zooms over the cover and lands on the ground below, causing erosion and increasing foundation moisture problems; (2) roof rot - the design of the cover traps destructive moisture on the sheathing underneath the shingles and/or on the fascia behind the gutters, causing the wood to rot; (3) can't be cleaned - any gutter cover that admits rainwater adequately also admits debris that rots and forms compost; if one can't access the compost to clear it out, then it builds up and clogs the system. If and when a gutter cover is designed that does not pose these problems, we will offer it to our customers.
