Our ranch style home is in serious need of gutters. We would like to reside as well as put in new soffit and fascia however that is not going to happen for another year or two. Can we put up seamless gutters now, take them down to reside, and put them back up? We hate to waste money on throw away pieced vinyl or alum. gutters. Thanks.

Yes....They might get a little dinged up in the R&I process, but you'll just want to be careful. The other option would be the slip the facia up behind them without removing them when the time comes. It is better to remove them though.

Sure they can. If you have a hip roof rather than gable and/or inside/outside miters you will have to drill out the rivets where the gutter pieces are joined and cut through the caulk to get them apart....
