Replace one gutter or all before new roof

I need to have one gutter replaced that separated from the rotted fascia and fell from the second story of a colonial during this last snow storm. I was planning to have a new roof done ( tear-off) and all new gutters done first thing this spring. Should I have all the gutters done now to save some $ or just replaced the damaged one now, since is there too much risk of damage to the new gutters during the roof install.

I don't know what the point would be of replacing any part of the gutters now. I would wait until after the roof is done, and do them all.

What about the damaged gutter that is pulled off the fascia and hanging down? Some of the attic area is exposed.

Well you don't just hang a gutter over it, you fix the soffit and fascia first!

Yes, I do realize that the fascia and soffit needs to be fixed before hanging the gutter. The concern the attic is exposed the elements and entry of squirrels, which I have had in the past.

Gutters have nothing to do with squirrels, so I'm not sure where you're going with that.

Replace the fascia and soffit now if there absence allows animals to enter. Do the gutter after new roof installed.
