It’s common for homeowners to think they should replace their gutters when they have a new roof installed. While this makes sense in some cases where it’s necessary to replace both, it’s not always recommended. Generally, it all depends on the condition of your gutter system.
Read on as Expert Contracting further explains this matter in this short post.
The Best Time for Gutter Replacement
Before replacing your gutters along with your roof, be sure to look for signs that you need new gutters. Check the gutter material for water damage. You should also look into the exterior of your home for peeling paint and rust marks. If you find any of these, then it’s time to replace your gutter system.
Benefits of Simultaneously Replacing the Roof and Gutters
Getting new gutters during roof installation can actually save you time and money. You can also easily match the gutter color to your new roof when you schedule both jobs together. Moreover, the projects will be easier to plan and oversee because you can hire one contractor to work on both tasks.
Gutter Repair vs. Replacement
When deciding on what to do with your existing gutters, it’s best to consult professionals for advice and let them conduct an inspection of your gutter system. They have the necessary skills and knowledge to determine whether the gutters need repair or replacement. You don’t want to spend extra on a complete gutter replacement when it can still be fixed.
