If you are planning to remodel your home, you may have questions about whether you should start with the gutters, roofing or siding. There are no right or wrong way to stage gutters, siding and roofing installs. You just have to consider a few things so you can get a clear picture of the installation.
Tearing off a roof is a strenuous task. There are various points of the process where the siding could become damaged. If your siding has already been replaced, we will take caution to avoid damaging the new construction. This is also the case with gutters and downspouts. In this case, starting with the roof makes more sense. The siding and gutters will then be in perfect condition upon completion of the project.
Some roofing components, such as the flashing, are easier to install without the siding. On the other hand, you’ll find some siding parts need to be nailed down under the roof shingles. In this sense, it seems more practical to install the siding first. Otherwise, the siding installer will need to be extra cautious with the new roof. If you plan to change the style and color scheme of your exterior, or if your gutters, siding and roof need replacing, look at doing them all together. Replacing the gutters, siding and roof at the same time will allow you to maintain the aesthetics of your home.
Making a judgment on whether to start with installing a roof, gutters or siding can go either way. In some cases, it makes sense to begin with the roof and then proceed to the gutters, then the siding. In other cases, the opposite is more logical. If you don’t know where to start, don’t worry.
