Exterior Painting Around Gutters?
I'm needing some advice about exterior painting and gutters.
My husband and I just bought a house with no gutters. We wanted to paint and install gutters as soon as possible. We were told by the gutter company that we should paint before having gutters installed because, otherwise, the gutters would have to be removed and reinstalled, adding an additional cost.
We planned on prepping and painting and installing gutters this month, but the money to do both isn't there and the weather isn't on our side. My main concern is water damage with no gutters, so we're thinking of installing gutters without painting. We're instead thinking of painting next year and just paying the extra cost to remove and reinstall the gutters.
My question is, is that necessary? Do I really need to take the gutters down or can I just paint around them?
