Gutters: New or Repair/Rehang Existing

I like to know whether I should install new gutters or rehang my old gutters which are about 35 years old. I currently have aluminum K type gutters on a two story colonial which are pulling away from the fascia board on three of the five gutters. The three gutters that need repair are held in with spikes and the others were rehung with hanger brackets and are OK. All gutters are in good condition.

In at least one area where a tree overhangs the corner of the house, the fascia board has rotted and possibly the end of the rafter tail also (the wood is soft and won't take the hanger screw). I have temporarily secured this area with hanger brackets. The tree will be pruned below the roof line. I plan on having the roof replaced next year, but would like the gutter fascia/repair this year if it won't cause a problem with the roof install.

I vote for rehanging the current gutters.

Gutters sound fine to rehang to me.
