Dear PoP – Decorative Wood Gutter Replacement

“Dear PoP,

I need to replace the decorative wood gutters because they have rotted and are beginning to detach from the house. Do you have any recommendations on who may be able to repair/replace the gutters and what this might cost? There doesn’t seem to be much information on the web about this sort of thing.

Of course, I am limited in funds, since I’ve just bought the house. I’m sure a more cost effective option would be to get rid of the ornate wood completely and install more modern gutters with plain flat wood supporting it. I would hate to do that, since I would lose a lot of the character and integrity of the house.”

Does anyone else have experience replacing/repairing these type of gutters? Any recommendations or guesses of how much it will cost?
