Roofing and gutter systems are essential for keeping your home dry and damage-free. Replacing them together may be ideal in some cases, especially because your roofing company offers both services.
In this post, JAM Roofing discusses when it’s ideal to replace your roof and gutters simultaneously.
When to Replace Your Gutters
Your roofing contractor will inspect your gutters for signs of damage. If there are minor holes or gaps, a few repairs may be necessary to keep the gutters intact. Some types of damage may no longer be repairable, particularly if the gutter system is nearing the end of its useful life. If your gutters are visibly rusted, cracked or sagging, replacing them at the same time as your roof is a good idea.
When to Keep Your Existing Gutters
When replacing your roof, changing your existing gutters is not always necessary. If your gutters are relatively new and in good condition, you can put off getting new ones. However, if your contractor suggests replacing them, it may be because of a severe issue. Rest assured, trustworthy roofers will have no trouble explaining the basis of their recommendation. If their advice is not convincing to you or you believe your gutters are still in good condition, feel free to seek a second opinion.
What You Can Do
Homes and businesses require strong and stable roofing and gutter systems to protect them. To achieve this, it’s crucial to work with a team of experts to install, maintain and repair these components. Check qualifications and learn as much as you can about recommended contractors before hiring one for your project.
