Here’s a question we get on a regular basis: should you get new gutter guards if you replace your roof? Since we offer both GutterDome and roof replacement services, we’re uniquely qualified to answer this question.
The answer: probably not! As with any roof fixture like your satellite dish or TV antenna, you’ll need to remove your gutter guard, gutters, and downspouts to ensure the roofers have access to your roof fascia and roofing materials. This is will make sure your gutters will be stable and secure for years to come.
However, there’s a good chance that if you’re replacing an old roof, you probably should replace your old gutter guards! Unless you’ve got a GutterDome system, it’s unlikely your gutter guards are doing their job. Go ahead and climb up your ladder to inspect your gutter guards – are they really keeping junk out of your gutters or are they clogging themselves?
GutterDome has the unique capability of filtering out debris from your gutters and move it off your roof! Water goes through and pushes junk away and keeps it moving through to your gutters where it belongs! It keeps itself effective and clean so that you can keep your ladder in your garage where it belongs.
There is one problem that sometimes arises with gutter guards. Since they’re often installed with the previous roofing material in mind, you may need to have them adjusted or installed differently if you’re changing your roof in a drastic way. For instance, if you had old asphalt shingles and you’re changing them to MetalWorks steel shingles, you may need a specialist to reinstall your gutter guards so that it doesn’t damage your roof. An improper installation can drastically affect the health of your roof and may even damage your gutters!
