I suggest you start with your local Better Business Bureau for a list of three contractors with A or A+ ratings that have been in business for several years. The quote should specify the thickness ie .032 example of the gutters and the downs example .024. (These are recommended aluminum gutter thicknesses). You can ask for references and DO NOT give a deposit before installation.

A tip can be if the refences mention that installer used a level to pitch the gutter. Those who dont should be avoided. I happpen to like 6" diameter gutters vs the average size of 5" on 95% of homes. They carry 59% more water.

You can add features like swing n hold top mount hinged gutter leaders to make raising downspouts for mowing easier. (They come with velcro patch to lock in up position)

Or if slope allows it hire a handyman etc rarely a gutter guy to bury your downspouts, If black plastic corrigated pipe used it can be sliced at an angle to match the slope of the lawn, thus hiding them from view.

While your at it maybe install some maintence reducing gutter covers or buy the ulitmate a MasterShield gutter filter system, For move info see my site,
