1. Some say to keep the internal gutters, but reline them with either torch-applied rubber or copper. The former worries us that the leaks will continue, and the latter may be prohibitively expensive. (No one has given us an estimate for the copper option yet.)
2. Some say to hang new external gutters (and roof over the internals), however they'd have to rebuild our fascia boards at a 90 degree angle first - they currently point inward about 45 degrees.
3. Others say to go with the external gutters, but believe we can leave the fascia boards as-is and hang the gutters using straps. This worries us that the weight of rain/snow may eventually bend the gutters and break the straps, because they won't be leaning against anything.
Option 2 seemed like our preference, however roofers are estimating $4,000-,6,000 just to rebuild the fascia. We're wondering if this is indeed what we need to do, and if perhaps contracting a carpenter to do the work first might be a wiser/less expensive decision.
Does anyone have any advice on what might work? We don't intend to be in this house for our entire lives, but we don't want to pay for work that will need to be repaired in 5 years either.
