- Ignoring the problem before It’s to late is an unfortunate mistake we see a lot of homeowners make. In the past we’ve had to turn down houses simply because the fascia board behind the gutter was rotted from water damage over the years. So instead of just needing new gutters, the homeowners found out that they needed new soffit, fascia, and siding for that part of the house BEFORE they could install the new gutters. A mistake which ended up costing them a lot of stress, time, and thousands of extra dollars in the end.
