Getting guttering Bids. Help me compare two companies' bids!


The tear off and replace means tear off the gutters and replace with new ones. Does the drip edge need to be replaced? I will be having a new roof put on right before the gutters are put on? Is there specific procedures that needs to be done to ensure the roof/gutters are put on correctly?

I did an ice dam this past Winter that was 1.5ft tall ON the gutter and went back up the roof 5ft it was a 4/12. After I steamed away the ice dam I found no gutter brackets in 12.75ft section were I steamed off the massive ice dam. Before I steamed there was no sign the gutter was sagging.

Every ft? That's way overkill if you ask me. A lot of the gutters I see are hung every 3-4ft. Not sure what my gutter guy runs but he's done dozens of gutters for me with no call backs.

H/O, are you an engineer??? Only an engineer would go over two gutter bids with a fine tooth comb!!!

Go with 6in steel and be done with it, or just go copper!!!

Have your roofer put on new gutter apron were the gutters are going on. Your insurance company should be paying for this either with the new roof or the new gutters.

All the gutter guys I've used (3 in 10 years) like to hang gutters under drip edge over gutter apron. One has only been in business for 55 years under the same name and and was the first 1,000 licensed contractors in my state. His business is seamless steel siding and gutters/soufit/fascia.

My home will have gutters put on soon and will have to tear up the siders edge to put on drip edge. If gutter apron was installed the shingles would have about a 1.5in overhange, way to much in my opinion. As far as the roof as though it's a defective (cracking and granular loss) Timberline roof at 7 years, don't plan to replace the 50sq roof anytime soon.
