Even if your roof is looking unsightly, it might not be time to replace it. A thorough roof cleaning can give your roof a fresh look and add years to it’s life.
Proper gutter installation can protect your home from water damage and landscape erosion.
While many consider gutter cleaning an unpleasant task, this annual ritual can prevent damage to your home.
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 Cleaning reviews in Boston
1. First Interaction/Quote: I spoke with on the phone about the scope of work (replace a downspout and remove the fallen downspout). He said he was in the neighborhood and would be able to send me a quote same day. He did so timely (that day) and included the scope of work and provided for a choice of materials to be used. In short, very responsive. I didn't need to track him down or call to follow-up. I asked him to send the quote in writing via email so that I could forward easily to the other Trustees. did so in a timely fashion (within 24 hours).
2. Second Interaction/Job granted and job scheduled: The condo association chose to go with this company because (1) the quote seemed it was priced correctly (not the highest and not the lowest), (2) the responsiveness of and (3) based on the reviews on Angie's list. I communicated this to via email and shortly thereafter we scheduled a time that worked for both of us to have the job completed (my recollection is we scheduled the job a little over a week out - I was out of town so unable to schedule the week prior).
3. Third Interaction/Job completed: I received a call from the day prior to the scheduled replacement. He and his crew were in the neighborhood and were able to start to complete the job a day early (insert my happy dance here). He called to explain some particulars of the job and sent along photos to illustrate the situation. With that resolved, the job was completed and I went over to inspect it. When I arrived, the site was cleaned up and the finish product looks great! In addition, they noticed that the gutter which the downspout was being attached to needed cleaning and did so.
& his assistant were polite & courteous, generally conducted themselves in a professional manner in our communications and while working on our issue.
