Need New Gutters for Old Victorian
We are in the process of having our house painted! And it's getting new storm windows/doors...keeping original windows. And our front porch is being redone in a month!
So now we're on to needing gutters in the very near future.
I would like historically appropriate looking gutters, but don't necessarily need copper, since I actually (gasp!) don't like the look of copper for some odd reason.
The small, old section of original gutter that was left was painted dark green half-round. Not sure of size, but can measure.
What should I be looking for in product and installation? Can gutters be painted? I think they will be up against much of the thick trim which will be painted a very dark green. The green swatches on many websites look too bright green for our application.
Or maybe plain white?
I know I don't want the 80's looking gutters that are on it now nor the new recatangular "seamless" gutter look.
Please school me on all there is to know about historic gutters! Thanks! :)
