Today I had the guys from Great NW Gutters out to put new rain gutters on the house. (Thanks to Dawn at Bungalowcious for the referral) I'm quite happy with the results.

I chose the steel gutters with the plain white baked on enamel finish, in the 4" K style. The rafter tails were already notched for this size gutter, so the installation was pretty straight forward. I had them use straps instead of spikes to mount the gutters, not wanting to put any more holes in the rafter tails.
There were no gutter guards on the old plastic cheapo-gutters. They had more flora and fauna living in them than my yard! They were PVC gutters with leaky seams and clogged downspouts.You can see the guys did a great job of structuring the downspouts in the back. Both of these lead into a funnel and into the drain. I was going to disconnect these from the drain, but their proximity to the future egress window made me think twice.
