No, generally you do not have to be home. You have 2 options.
a) We can meet with you personally for your quote. We will walk around your home and go over the details regarding your water draining needs, soffit, fascia, siding or window/door requirements.
b) We can also simply visit your property and walk the exterior of the home in your absence. Once complete, we email the estimate to you. We can go over the details of the estimate with you regarding any additional information or questions you may have.
