When the time comes to replace your roof, it's not uncommon for questions to arise that relate to the gutters. In this article, we'll address three of those common questions so that you can move forward with your roofing or gutter project with peace of mind.
How do I know if I should replace my gutters?
Gutters that are cracked, leaking, sagging, separating, or that have dents can create an issue with water flow which ultimately results in water damage in the basement or to the foundation of your home. If you see any of these issues, it's a good idea to get them replaced.
Do I have to replace my gutters when I replace my roof?
The short answer: no. However, you want to make sure your roof and gutters are of equal quality. If your new roof is of better quality, then go ahead and consider getting gutters that match that same level of quality.
What are the benefits of getting new gutters and a new roof at the same time?
Aside from having a roof and gutters with equal quality, the biggest advantage is affordability. Think of it as buying a whole new set of tires as opposed to buying just one at a time. Whether you're financing with a roofing and gutter company or using homeowner's insurance, typically the cost of doing both at once will be less expensive than having two separate appointments.
