Box gutters...did you re-line or replace?
We have a 1939 federal style home with box gutters on the front. The PO replaced the gutters with aluminum on the back and sides. It's obvious that the gutters need some work, but we are still waiting for a professional to come next week and evaluate them. (We have a slate roof that is also being evaluated.) My question is, for those of you whose homes had box gutters, was it expensive/worthwhile to re-line them? Or would it be better to replace them with something else? Is there an alternative that looks like a box gutter but is more efficient? Our GC who is working on the house is recommending that we replace them, since we have forests surrounding our home, and the gutters tend to get clogged quickly. Any input would be appreciated.
