A gutter problem can be a pain to deal with, especially if you’re not sure what’s causing the issue. If you have a professional roofer come out and take care of your issue they should be able to give you an idea of what needs fixing and if it’s even worth repairing.
Here are some reasons to hire an expert roofing service when it comes to gutter repair:
Roofers can better diagnose the problem.
A professional roofer can identify the cause of your gutter problems, which will help you decide whether to repair or replace them. Here’s why:
- A trained eye can spot damage from a ladder. If you’re up on your roof checking the gutters yourself, it’s easy to miss something wrong with your roofing material or gutters themselves.
- Roofers have more access points than most homeowners. If there is something wrong with your gutters, a professional may be able to get a better look at them through another opening in the roof structure than could be accessed by simply walking across it (and then getting down and back up again).
It’s cheaper to fix the gutter than to let it go.
It is much cheaper to fix a gutter than to replace it. The cost of replacing a gutter can be as high as $1,000 or more, depending on the type of material being used and where you live. An average-sized home with gutters that need repairs will cost about $200-$400 for labor costs only (excluding materials).
Gutter repairs are usually done in one day or two at most, saving you time compared to replacement which requires removing old gutters before installing new ones.
Roofing companies can tell you if you’re in need of a replacement.
If you’re not sure whether or not it’s time for a replacement, roofing companies can tell you. They are equipped with the right tools and knowledge to inspect your gutters and can give you a fair quote for any repair work that needs to be done.
A roofing company can also help connect you with a gutter repair specialist if they don’t have the experience themselves.
You need to know what type of damage is causing the problem.
Several things that can cause damage to your gutters, including:
- Accumulation of debris and organic matter (leaves, twigs, and other natural detritus) in the gutter system
- A lack of proper maintenance over time
- Water leaks from roofs, which may have damaged the gutters or caused them to disintegrate
You may not see all the damage from a ladder.
One benefit of hiring a roofing professional is that they can see the entire gutter system, while you will only be able to see half of it from a ladder. You may not be able to tell how bad the damage on your gutters and downspouts is from up high with your eyes alone. A professional can determine whether or not the damage is permanent, or if it’s just something that can easily be repaired.
They can provide a fair quote for your repairs.
Hiring a roofing expert for a gutter repair can also provide you with a fair quote. Roofing companies are experienced and will be able to advise you on whether or not the repairs are necessary, as well as give you an accurate estimate for the repairs. They will also be able to connect you with a company or contractor if needed.
Don’t ignore a gutter problem, call an expert to take care of it.
The most important thing you can do for your home is to keep up with annual inspections and repairs, so you can maintain the integrity of your roof system. If you have a gutter problem that has gone unchecked or ignored for too long, it will only grow worse. If you try to fix it yourself, there’s a risk that you could make things worse by making mistakes or causing damage during repair work. You should never try to do repairs on your own, letting skilled professionals handle all your home improvement projects is always best!
Some people wait until their gutters are falling off before they reach out for help, but if left unattended, this could easily become an emergency in which there may be no other choice than to replace them entirely rather than give them the attention they need right now. Waiting until something becomes critical would be a mistake because oftentimes even small jobs lead up to larger ones down the road if not corrected quickly enough, so don’t let this happen!
