Yup, this house never had gutters.
(Let me tell you...it took a month and a half to find a gutter guy! Two stood us up on appointments and one gave us such an outrageous price that we laughed! Happily we found a referral from our neighbor....always get referrals from neighbors....)
It has angled facia boards so technically, it didn't need gutters. However, it had beat up the old patio and you can see on the driveway that it has beat that up as well. And since we did the patio with an expensive new paver patio...and want to do the driveway...we felt it was needed. Also, Hubby wanted to move the rain barrels off the patio.
Well, the first plan was to have all the water go into rain barrels on the side yard...so they weren't visible at all. However, the "run" of gutter was too long and the slope wasn't quite right according to two gutter guys.
So, we had to move it to the "middle" of the "run" to catch water....it is actually not bad, not where I'd put it....but hey, it isn't on the patio and it is close to the crops and their boxes.....
The guys arrived a little before 3 and were done by 4:30. There were three guys....the owner (nicest guy and best gutter man who has been in business for 45 years!).
They are seamless gutters and are extruded right from the truck.
Peter said he'd be here at 9:30 and he was. Likable guy who listened to what we wanted and made suggestions according to what he knows...and then gave us a list of referrals (many from this neighborhood) and pictures to show what he does etc. Very knowledgeable and funny to boot.

The machine takes the flat roof of stuff and turns it into a seamless gutter the length they need.
Very professional ......
Now, you ask, what was I doing while waiting for them to arrive?
Well, Hubby and I moved a rain barrel and leveled it.
Then he went to Kiwanis and I......
I made a quilt "ladder".....
It was a piece of arbor...
So, yesterday was so productive I can't even tell you. I got so much done! Including getting gutters done.
I hope you have a productive day!
