Replacing your outdated gutters can prevent water damage on your roof, exterior and foundation. Properly installed seamless gutters significantly reduce the likelihood of leaks and eliminate ugly seams, preserving your home’s beauty.
Read on as the area’s top siding and roofing company shares factors you need to consider before having your gutters replaced.
Check the size of your current gutters. If your existing gutters are overflowing, then you’ll want to consider replacing them with bigger ones. Six-inch gutters are becoming more popular because they streamline water flow and reduce the possibility of flood damage. Consult a professional if you’re unsure about the size of your gutters.
Today’s gutters come in a wide range of colors and materials. Choosing the right can elevate the architectural style of your home and increase its curb appeal. Make sure to select ones that complement the color of your roofing and exterior. The most popular gutter materials include aluminum, copper and galvanized metal. At Century Roofing and Siding Ltd., we install T-Rex® gutters. They offer superior strength, come in attractive designs, and are backed with a 40-year clog-free warranty.
Facia is a wooden or sheet metal board that runs horizontally under the edge of the roof. Make sure to check the condition of the fascia board if your home has one. Look for crumbling wood, peeling paint, warping, or stains. You’ll have to address a rotten or damaged fascia before having your gutters replaced.
You must have your roof inspected before getting new gutters. The gutters may need to be removed during a roof replacement. In some cases, the gutters will also need to be replaced.
