My customer called into the office looking for gutter repairs and gutter cleaning and any other recommendations. Upon inspection, I found an ancient, recently painted guttering system that is beginning to fail at joints, pull away from the facia board, causing rot, and is a bit undersized. While these gutters may be repairable, I recommend a total replacement. I also am providing an estimate for gutter guards for these gutters, as they are complicated to reach for cleaning.
