Dear PoPville – Looking for someone to repair built-in gutters for Wardman Style home

Dear PoPville,

My husband and I are having some trouble with the built-in (also known as box) gutter on our home. In the photo above (which isn’t my house, but it’s the same style) it’s the white gutter that is above the top story windows and attached to the roof. It looks like crown molding, but it’s actually a gutter.Almost every Wardman Style home in the area has one, but the roofers we have had come out all say they can’t/don’t know how to replace them as is and would need to just install a new unattached gutter, which would ruin the historic look of the house. Has anyone in the area had any luck replacing these gutters? We can’t re-lign it because the wood behind it is also rotting and will need to be replaced. Would love any suggestions folks have.
