Just wanted to post pictures of our new gutters....just in time for the crazy thunder and rain storms last weekend. We opted for 5" half rounds and 3" round downspouts and had a local independent gutter guy do the deed for a good price. We considered (or more like I did) doing the gutters ourselves last summer, but what can I say, we are burnt out and really want to keep the rain out and not let it in by not doing it right.
Good decision is what we are thinking.
Here are a couple pictures of prep which included trimming the rafter tails (again, out of omph as well as daylight and rain-free hours), painting and priming that tails as well as soaking the galvanized metal piece sin vinegar to remove some of the galvanized portion and then spray priming with rustoleum oil-based paint for metal. ...we will probably not get to painting them until next spring...or summer.
