So you’ve decided to have your roof replaced. As you go through the process of selecting the best materials and components for the project, you might be wondering whether you should have your gutters replaced as well. It makes sense knowing that most roofing contractors are also qualified to perform gutter installations.
Whether or not you replace your gutters during a roof replacement will depend on how old the gutters are and how much damage they’ve sustained over time. Homecraft® Inc. discusses further.
The Benefits of Getting New Gutters With a New Roof
If you’re replacing your roof, you can save yourself money and future headaches by investing in new gutters. This is especially true if your gutters are leaking or showing signs of severe disrepair. Moreover, when you schedule both replacements together, you can match the gutter color to your new roof. Like roofs, gutters come in a wide variety of factory paint colors. Your roofing contractor can give you color samples of both roof and gutters to compare side by side.
Why You Should Consider the Condition of the Gutters
On the other hand, if your gutters are still in good condition, it’s smart to leave them alone while replacing your roof. When a roofing contractor is giving you an estimate for a roof replacement, be sure to ask him to inspect your gutters. If there are minor issues, you may only need to schedule gutter repairs. Also, if your gutters tend to get clogged, your contractor may recommend investing in gutter covers to prevent clogs.
