According to roofing experts, removing gutters allows you to better understand the extent of potential problems with the roof.
In addition, with the gutters removed, you can install the roof properly with gaskets on the dripping edges and seal the edges cleanly. While it's usually best to install a new gutter system after the roof, sometimes this isn't possible. If your gutters are damaged or ineffective, you may have no choice but to install them before your new roofing system. In this case, it's best to have protection built into the contract with the contractor so that your gutters are protected.
Workers are also very likely to damage gutters by carrying roofing materials to the roof. Even if you're buying new gutters with roof replacement, there's no need to remove the old ones until it's time to replace them. In many modern homes with beautiful, intricate roofs, there are not enough gutters to withstand all the water that flows from the roof.

Your gutter and roof replacement contractor would strongly recommend installing a gutter protector on your system to prevent debris from entering the system. After replacing the roof, they'll even blow everything up and clean the gutters, whether they're going to be replaced or not. If the roofing equipment intends to leave the gutters turned on, they will clean them before and after the roofing process.
Some gutter installers prefer to place a fascia board under the roof and attach the gutters to the table instead of placing them directly to the roof. Once the roofing is finished, the gutter installation team will come and put the downspout and gutter back in place so that they fit the new roof properly. Cleaning the gutters helps the crew detect possible problems related to the sealing of the roof edges or structural damage that has already occurred and that may affect the roofing process.
