Contractors say homeowners with this trait are the most satisfied with home improvement projects.
Often overlooked, gutters provide many benefits to your home. One highly rated provider shares some reasons to consider upgrading your gutter system.
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.

Would never do business with a company that uses such price gouging tactics. How would you trust them to perform the work properly and stand behind their warranty?
I saw the Leaf Filter product in a home show in Virginia and was impressed with the system of a very fine mesh screen above a perforated cover. I've had previous experience with other types of supposed guards and found them lacking. This one seemed to be a far superior design. I gave them my NJ address and arranged for an estimate when I was to be there several month later.
The rep (Pat) arrived on time and was very cordial and helpful. He measured and abbreviated the sales pitch (which could have taken much time) because I'd seen the product in the home show. I must admit I was somewhat taken aback when I saw the estimate for the entire house. It was way more than I had anticipated. After some more discussion he asked if we had certain problem areas that could be addressed, thereby reducing the cost because it might entail fewer corners. As it turns out I did have problem areas (the porch) and the gutter in the back over our second floor which were why I was looking for such a system. Additionally, they were the areas I could not easily reach with an extension ladder. Since these are straight gutters the price came down substantially. Doing something I don't usually do (wait and price check) I agreed.
I noted we'd be away from our home again and wanted the work done while I was here. The Rep said he may be able to schedule the work the next day! He confirmed they could do it and sure enough the man and woman crew arrived within the promised window the next day. The man did all the gutter work while the woman cut and assembled the Leaf Filter Guard filters.
Two things seemed different than what I thought the Rep said: First I thought the Leaf Filter Guards were factory assembled... they're not. Second, I thought they came in long sections of 12 to 18 feet. Not so, they are 5 ft sections which are butted against each other on top of the gutter. Maybe it was my misunderstanding. Or maybe I misinterpreted what the Rep said... either way I was somewhat surprised. But as the work progressed, and as I watched the pair worked diligently and professionally. While I could not see the upper gutter, I could watch the work on the porch gutters and was impressed at the care he used. He did clean the gutters, seal them and replace all the supports (with an integral component of their system). And the guards look good and tight.
First rain due tonight and I'll see if they work as they're supposed to. We're approaching the season when the oak trees drop some kind of seed things which have historically clogged our gutters/leaders... I'll be watching to see how this system really works. If it is as good as I hope, I may opt for doing the rest of the house. But rest assured I'll hold out for a better unit price.
Update 26 Aug 2015: The product works as advertised. Several rains, some very heavy, and no overflows. The gutters do not collect debris and flow very well without any work on my part. Additionally, I don't see stuff collecting on top of the screen meaning water continues to flow into the gutter, not over it. So far so good. I'll see now what happens with the fall leaves. I'm encouraged. And frankly impressed.
