back to the op thats kinda my point Ron once the gutter goes on there won't be an issue

West Coast Cedar to boot.

Love the ladder table, looks like most of my setups. Them Orshore boys donít think much of it though.

Not trying to derail the thread but I have to know. How much a sq. for the reds in NJ?

Wow, thank you all for the responses! I didn't expect to get this many in return.

Thanks for all the valuable information. Yes, I agree with some of the other posts. I believe that it's a thin gauge of aluminum that was used, and that doesn't give it the ridgidity. I also believe that once the gutters are up, it will look better. Not great, but a lot better.

The areas where there won't be any gutters look a little better; i only took pictures of what i thought were the worse. I checked other houses in the subdivision and theirs are like that as well. I suppose the bottom line is just making sure that there is a good seal so that it doesn't leak water. Yeah, it should probably be a thicker aluminum, but I suppose they have to draw the line of where the price point is.

Somebody said something that made it sound like there may be a larger problem, but the original poster (me) didn't ask about it....what was it?

The vents that are in the soffit are for the bathrooms.

Thanks again for all the responses!

Looks like vinyl soffit and vinyl fascia. Whether vinyl or aluminum it should not look that way. Fastening a gutter over wavey/warped facia will probably compound the problem rather than alleviate it. Also, several of the siding seams look suspect and I don't think the siding was snap-locked into finish trim under the windows causing the siding to "wave" as well.

I'd get the installer out to correct the problems right away.

The main thing imo is do the waves in it cause it to roll out from under the drip edge, if so water can get in behind the metal and rot the wood. They can put a hem on the aluminum to make it more rigid and not wave as much. The main thing is it needs to be under the drip edge good.
