Rain Gutters Question

Hello:

About to ask a few contractors over for quotes on adding rain gutters to
house. House is a typical split level outside of Boston.

Know nothing about rain gutters.

What questions should I ask ?

Are there different "quality levels" ? e.g., Aluminum thickness, etc. ?

Is there a consensous as to the best brand(s) ?

Also, is there a best method of fastening the gutters with a particular
type of hardware that I should be requesting ?

Any thoughts on would be most appreciated.

Thanks,
Bob

New Gutters

Your question is in an area where you may get alot of answers. I will tell you what I would do. I would use steel gutters, many different colors, no rivits, just gutter screws, gutter cement at all joints, and the screw on type hangers. No gutter nails. Gutters are one of those things that are kind of spendy to install. If you get someone alot cheaper then others, do not get them. Nothing is worst then a leaking new gutter. Good Luck
