Two notes #1 20 feet is going to cost you more per foot that 100 feet. #2 All prices are relative to Your market ie Omaha is less expensive than St Lious. Here expect to pay on the 100 foot job $5 to $6 per foot of gutter (5" aluminum) plus the $4 to $5 a foot for the downspouts and $15 to $20 for soffit and facsia covering ie vinyl soffit panels and painted or vinyl clad aluminum covering the fascia. In the trade a soffit & fascia job.

Not knowing what type of eaves (the lower edge of the roof) you had before the new soffits were intalled I have to guess what might have happened. If you had closed eves (no soffits, just rafter tails with blocking between) before as was done on some older homes it is possible they removed or drilled holes through to the attic. When this was done there should have been a baffle installed to direct the air flow up and over the insulation. This would only be possible for the soffit installer to do if the wood blocking was removed and not just had holes drilled in it. If the insulation contractor did not go all the way to the exterior wall that could very well be the cause or it he did not make sure the insulation was pushed down to make contact with the ceiling material. If the house was never cold before I would bet the problem is at the eaves. You should call the insulation company for an answer.
The ice build-up in the gutter should not, provided they are properly attached and solid, rip out the gutter.
When you get snow slides and large chunks of frozen precip that let go and slide down the roof with velocity, those are what tear off the gutters and create damage.
If you are concerned about the snow load, a snow rake and/or a proper roofer can remove some of the accumulated snow.
Some ice damming is unavoidable in the correct conditions but I would urge you to look into proper ventilation of the roof and air sealing and insulation. This will reduce your home's inclination to form these ice dams in the future.
Gutter Installation reviews in Traverse City
No calls until yesterday, 10/10/15, when a man called to see if I was still wanting someone to come out. I said someone is already hired. He said that was good, he was just calling to check, or words to that effect.
Words and behaviors didn't match. The follow through was poor. I don't know if they are too busy, didn't want to do the job that was needed, or what, but it would be helpful if a company would say so up front rather then be late, then later, then not follow through with what they say. Or, if one month later is the norm for following through, let the customer know that. It is mid-October. If I had waited for an estimate and then the start of work it might have been too cold for what's absolutely needed now.
I contacted this vendor only because they received great reviews from Angie's list. I only use contractors that are recommended by people I know and I thought Angie's list was reputable, but now I have second thoughts about their reviews.
I don't want to sit around waiting for the contractor and him not even call to reschedule or to make contact saying he'd be late. That is unprofessional. I don't know if they do quality work and I won't find out.
I should know by now (56 years old) - mother always knows best. ;)
I liked the work overall, and the courtesy and professional demeanor of the original installers, so when my wife asked to have that final line installed, I requested a re-quote to add. It was provided to me in a reasonably timely manner, although higher in price than I expected, based on original work, so I asked for a better price. He accommodated me with the stipulation that the timing be based on their presence near my home.
The appointment was set for the second installation, but the installers never showed up. It was raining that day, and I understand calling the job on account of rain, but received no call. Having informed the company in no uncertain terms that this is unacceptable to not notify the clients, they apologized and rescheduled for today (Saturday, September 10, 2015). It is now almost 5:30 PM. They confirmed the installation for today by phone yesterday or the day before, but not a time.
This is the second no-show without notice. Granted it is very hot today (~100 degrees), and if they are called on account of excessive heat, I can accept that.
What I cannot tolerate is total incompetence by the management of this company to keep their clients informed.
It seems abundantly clear that they abhor repeat business.
IF they decide to do the remainder of the job, I am going to demand the current payment be reduced by 75% or I will not have it done. However they still need to correct the issues, or I will be demanding a full refund of the original $750 job, and if they refuse to provide it, I will be forced to take them to small claims court. In addition, I will have to contract with another company to repair their errors, and I will have to go after
They do not respond to calls very well. They tend to be indignant with the client when they are 100% in the wrong and not showing up or calling to advise the conditions are not safe or healthy or whatever the heck the reason is.
Note: the amount shown is for both jobs, the original plus the add-on, and that sum is rounded up to the thousand
C on quality due to totally missing the front corner, and missing part of the rear corner in addition to the incompetence factor - that is quality is not just the workmanship, but customer service as well.
Personally, I am beginning to be sorry I even heard of this company, much less decided to do business with them in the first place.
First job: ~ $750 paid
Second job: $200 - work not executed, two missed appointments without notice.
