Beginning a gutter service can be as simple as using existing tools you own like a powerwasher to clean your gutters or as extensive as learning how to install gutters as a separate side of your business. Regardless of how you incorporate gutter services into your business, you should make sure you follow local and federal regulations for operating your business. If you have employees, you should also make sure that you’re following the laws regarding worker’s compensation insurance. Even if you’re a sole proprietor, you still may need to have worker’s compensation insurance in case you get injured on the job when someone hires you to service their gutters.
