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. Considering the situations in which an owner may change the gutters before the roof, it's important to return to a key point. The gutters must be replaced with every roof remodel.
Replacing gutters is especially important when gutters are attached to the roof, regardless of the condition of the gutters. The reason is that the gutters must be sealed perfectly along the edges of the roof. Instead of dealing with multiple companies, you can request the replacement of your gutters and roofs through your roofing contractor. Whether you need new gutters, a new roof, or even both, hiring a great local roofing contractor is critical.
For example, if you have a situation where you need to repair the gutters more intensively than the roof, you can install the gutters first and spend more time replacing the roof. The Bill Ragan Roofing team has been replacing roofs and gutters for Nashville residents since 1990. While the overflowing gutter is the source of water from the leak, it is rather the fascia (the board that runs along the lower edge of the roof and that carries all the gutters). The Bill Ragan Roofing Company team has been providing Nashville and the surrounding area with high-quality gutter and roofing services since 1990.
For those who have gutters, you may be wondering if you also need to replace the gutters or if you can keep the gutters you have installed. The drip-edge gasket is attached to the roof cover and folds over the fascia creating a rim that supports the lower edge of the tiles and blocks the overflow of the gutters. When gutters become clogged, stormwater runoff cannot drain properly and spills down gutter walls, damaging facade boards, roof covering and, in extreme cases, damaging beams or roof beams. If you're going to place a seamless gutter in one piece, you'll probably need to have it in place before you can place your new roof.
The new gutters do not fit the supports of the old gutters, so replacing the roof together with the gutter is the best option. Signs of wear and tear on the gutters are definitely an indication that your gutter system needs to be replaced. If a roof has gutters but does not have gaskets on the dripping edge, they will need to be removed to allow the installation of the covers with leaky edges to comply with local building regulations. To give you more peace of mind and ensure that your gutter system can truly withstand inclement weather, you should hire a professional to perform the task.
However, since there are several circumstances surrounding different gutter systems, it can be difficult to say that the same rule applies to all situations. It is important to perform at least annual maintenance on the gutters to clean and check them.
