Should i get new gutters before a new roof?

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. 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.

Installing gutters and installing a new roof are two different tasks. If you're doing both, which we estimate happens 35 to 50% of the time, we first replace the roof and then install the gutters. There's no doubt that you can install new rain gutters, even if you don't need to replace the roof. Certainly, if your gutters are damaged or in poor condition, you should probably allow them to be replaced along with the roof.

If you've noticed several spots where there are leaks, dents, or gaps, or if you've noticed that runoff water overflows them frequently, giving the green light to a gutter replacement is probably a good option. And if you're going to change the roof due to storm damage, it's very likely that your gutters have also been damaged by the storm. We usually install “K” style gutters that are 5 inches wide, the standard size, or 6 inch wide gutters, which are considered oversized. If your gutters need to be replaced, you can replace them at the same time as the roof, saving you time and money.

If you decide to have Proven Contracting install both your roof and gutter, we'll install your roof first and gutter second. In addition, trying to remove old gutters without removing the shingle roof or metal roof will damage the felt underneath. Although many roofing companies often replace gutters, there's no guarantee that they have the same level of experience they have installing new roofs. But not only could the owner be paying for something they don't need, but the replacement gutters may be of lower quality than the ones being replaced.

In total, if someone receives both a complete roof replacement and a new gutter system, it will usually take two days to complete the work. Once they're done replacing the roof, they'll blow everything up and clean the gutters, whether they need to be replaced or not. 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 damage due to faulty gutters can also include curly wallpaper, damp carpets, or doors and windows that don't close properly due to foundation movement.

A gutter has two sides, and water that spills due to inadequate drainage could cause deterioration or decay of the facial cutout to which the gutters are attached. When a roof is installed, to protect the house from falling tiles and from any stairs stacked against the house, tarps are nailed to the roof cover, which is the area just above the gutters. Rather than removing them, your local roofing contractor will take the necessary steps to ensure that the gutters are protected during the roof replacement process. Plus, you won't necessarily know how well your new gutters work until the next time it rains a lot; and that may be beyond the labor warranty period.
