Here is a previous similar question with answer which might help - LOTS more answers (at least for asphalt shingle roofs, less for wood or metal or built-up roofing) can be found in the Home > Roofing pulldown link, under Browse Projects, at lower left.

For gutters - here and in the Home > Gutters link under Browse Projects.

Be sure the two contractors are coordinated (usually roofers do not do gutters themselves, even if they bid it as part of their job) because any fascia damage uncovered when the roofing and existing gutters are removed needs to be repaired BEFORE new roofing or gutters go on, and the drip edge from the new roofing needs to be set so it drips inside the gutter and the backof the gutter should be higher than the drip edge bottom so blowing drips do not wet the fascia. Worst thing is to have no dripedge or have it behind the gutter, wetting the fasica and eventually rotting it and the rafter tails.

Oh - two other thoughts:

1) be sure the materials and roofing job meet any local/state/insurance company fire resistant design if in a designated wildfire hazard area.

2) be sure to specify the fascia finish or you will get bare wood boards - and generally 9with rare exceptions) the back side should be left unfinished or at most be lightly sprayed with desired color of special soffit/fascia highly permeable paint, so any wetness in the fascia board can evaporate through the back.
