“If a rain gutter system is not installed correctly and work well with the existing roofing system you have, the results can be a disaster.” That’s why it’s absolutely essential to make sure that you have a functional system of gutters on your roof, and if there is an issue, you need to have it addressed as quickly as possible.
When Should You Get New or Updated Gutters?
Know before you begin that installing gutters can potentially do damage to your roof, so they’re best placed on “a bare roof.” Ideally, you’d get them put in around the same time as a roof replacement or installation so that you kill two birds with one stone, so to speak. That will both prevent damage to a preexisting roof and allow for the addition of a roofing featured that you very badly need. Of course, this is dependent on your personal budget, but if you can afford it, this is likely the best option.
You may already have a gutter system and could be wondering how this is relevant to your own situation. Consider, though, the last time you thought about the gutters. When was the last time that anyone inspected them or even looked at them? When were they initially installed? If the answers to all of these questions were a while ago, then it’s probable that you need to make some updates, or at least to check on the status of the gutters. You don’t want to have to wait for a leak to realize that there’s an issue!
The best time to install new gutters, really, is as soon as you can (unless they’ve recently been replaced). Preventative measures are the best way to stop future issues from developing.
