When Not to Repair Your Eavestroughs
When is repairing your gutter system not a good idea? Repairing or replacing an eavestrough system is a problem faced by homeowners in the London, Ontario region on almost a daily basis. One of the reasons for not repairing your gutters can be that you are getting a new roof. If you are replacing your roof, it is generally always advisable to install new gutters. The reason for this is that the roof and your gutters can be perfectly integrated for maximum efficiency.
Dealing with inadequate pitch, problems with flashing, improper downspout locations, outdated colors, old and damaged gutters, or other major gutter problems is most easily dealt with at the same time you are replacing your roof.
Gutters can also cause roof leaks. When gutters have been damaged with ice or debris, they can pull away from the house, damaging facia boards. The result is an opening where water can accumulate behind the facia and drain into the soffit and inside your home’s walls. In this case, a full replacement is probably not warranted, but timely repair will prevent further costly damage.
