New roof and gutter question


Just had new roof put on past 2 days. New everything above the wood (including removing 3 old leaking skylights and having holes left covered). Looks good, but they said their "gutter guy" is coming to do the gutters with the "gutter truck" tomorrow. We are getting seamless gutters with gutter apron and new downspouts. Is it normal or ok to install the gutter apron after the roof is done, or should it have been done first? Does it matter? Thanks for any input.

If the Seamless Gutter guys know what they're doing - and I assume they do - this should be no problem.

Agreed, it's fine to be done after.

Damage to the gutter system is mitigated by doing it after the roof.
Why the concern about the sequence?

Only concerned because if what I read somewhere and the fact I don't trust people doing work anymore. Had too many issues with dishonest people. Hoping this company holds up and I can finally know who I can go to in future. So far, workers are professional. The "coordinator" needs to work on communication though. Not much of it..,

Home improvement isn't a secret. Methodology is easily found through many venues. If you do your research before a project begins, you can usually weed out the chafe from the wheat.
