Frequently Asked Questions
- How does this work?
The NCR Verified dealer program provides unbiased content, testing and reviewing a spectrum of industry products and refers readers to gutter protection product installers that we have qualified as NCR Verified. The reader has the option to fill the form out and send a contact request directly to the NCR Verified dealer or call them directly with the number provided during the verification process.
- How many leads will I receive?
We do not consider this as a lead service, we are simply referring the readers to dealers and installers for the products we review. We inform readers as to the best of our ability and send them to the installers that we have determined are qualified in order to empower the homeowner to make the first contact and maintain control of the buying process.
We have been growing rapidly over the past decade and we think the reason is because we are not running this service to make a large profit, rather to better equip homeowners with information in the home product space.
The number of readers that will contact you largely depends on your area or zone. We keep track of the emails sent from the contact page but do not currently keep track of the direct phone calls. If you close a business sale from one of our interested readers, then congratulations and be sure to treat them with the value that they deserve!
- Who is NCR?
The NCR Consumer Advocacy Group is the largest publisher of gutter guard industry news, product testing and reviews. The NCR Group engages its audience in print and web content that is distributed free from advertising and product placement.
NCR Consumer Advocacy Group was founded in 2006 by a team of engineers and media/marketing professionals – with a mission to create dedicated transparent and science based reviews for products. Each review that the NCR group publishes is curated within an independent content portal (such as this one for gutter protection reviews) and operates mostly independently – thus enabling us to constantly adapt and evolve to maximize content quality, readers and subscribers.
- How do we qualify a dealer NCR Verified?
The qualification process begins with testing and reviewing the gutter protection products to ensure that they are designed and manufactured with quality in mind. The only bias that we knowingly allow in the verification process is towards gutter protection products manufactured and assembled in the United States. The test results naturally segment the products based on quality and performance and 98% of the interested readers are interested in the top three products.
Any dealer interested in becoming NCR Verified must be vetted by a NCR staff member to discuss their products and business philosophy as well as review the installer qualifications and oversight that occurs to ensure good quality installations.
It is inevitable that a certain number of installations will be handled inadequately in the eyes of the homeowner. The NCR Verified qualification process is not designed to find the perfect dealer with no complaints, but rather to guide homeowners to a gutter protection product dealer that exhibits integrity in their business operations and overall has built an organization that focuses on the providing high quality products that match homeowner’s needs without taking advantage of them.
