Home Guttering Education-What to look for?


I am in the market for new guttering for my home. What type should I look for? Types, costs? etc.

I am also going to have to have my roof replaced and the house painted. Is there any "best" order of process to have this done i.e have the gutters put on then the roof put on then have the house painted??? Or does it matter?

Roof, Paint then gutters. You can buy the gutters in 10' long pieces or more then likely a seamless gutter guy will do a chop and drop. Its always much easier to have them install them though

Also make sure to ask for 3x4 downspouts and the 2x3's are nothing but clogs. If you got the room 4x5's are nice since they dont clog as easy. This is of course if you have a leaf problem.

I know that it is best to have the gutters removed prior to having the house painted and then have the house painted and then install the gutters. In most people's experience, typicallly will the painters come back to paint the new gutters? Or is this a lot to expect out of them? I know that in this day and age, cusomer service is not high on some companies lists. What do you think?

Absolutely agree with, roof, paint then gutters.

Roof first --- you may have to replace facia board, which requires gutters to be removed.

Are you thinking of aluminum soffits and facia, at this point you should be.

Paint, if there is no aluminum soffits and facia so you can paint the facia under the gutter,

and then finally gutters, aluminum is the only one in which you can have seamless, and you do what seamless.
