What to do first: paint exterior, install windows, or new roof?

I have three projects to do, but I don't know the best order to do them in. The house is horizontal cedar siding which is being repainted a new charcoal color instead of tan. New fiberglass windows will be black with white trim. New roof is changing from shingle to black standing seam metal. Gutters and trim are all tan and will need replaced or painted white.

What is the best order to do these three projects so they don't hinder or interfere with each other?

Never install the gutters until the roof and siding is all done.
They would just be in the way when stripping the roof, and they will be setting ladders against them while doing the roof.
I've never once seen anyone using staging when working on a roof, it would just get in the way.
