Gutters and Leaf Guard - Complaint

SIDNEY, OHIO -- Erie tried selling us gutters and leaf guard on our home. He said to replace all of the gutters the cost would be in excess of $9,000. He was willing to replace our gutters above our garage, with leaf guard, and only repair the other gutters for $4,400. Are you kidding me? After our visit with Erie I checked online to see what replacement gutters went for and found prices much, much lower. I ended up going with a local contractor and he replaced all of the gutters (not repair...he replaced them) and installed leaf guard on the entire house for $775. It's a shame that a company operates the way that Erie does (through dishonesty). I believe they are preying on uninformed people that do not have the heart to say "No". I will never allow them on my property again. Well, let's see...I just saved $8,225 by NOT going with Erie Construction for gutters and leaf guard on my home. You can come to your own conclusions about the company based on that type of quote!

Actually, there's not dishonest about what they are doing, they are offering a service and they charge what the want for it, even if their price is absurd. It's the consumer's responsibility to perform their due diligence when it comes to situations like this. Obviously you knew that $4000 was a ridiculous price. If others people decide to take them up on their offer, then it's on them, not the company offering the service.
