Copper Gutters needed

I live in an old coach house in Newport, RI. It was originally
built in 1895 and used as Deluxe Coach House for the Havermeyers
Estate. In 1987 a Developer purchased building and converted to
10 Town House Condo's. Instead of replacing the copper gutters
the developer used shallow wooden gutters which were connected
to copper downspouts. Visually the building looked great. Unfortuneately for 20 years the gutters have been coming apart
at the seams. Even with constant repairs the low spots and the
fascia is rotting.

I think we should replace the complete wooden system with a new
copper 1/2 round 6'/20 ounce system. Yet I don't have the
knowledge to understand who is the right MfG or who might be tehe
right contractor? I have spoken to 5 contractors and can't get
the same answers out of any of them? I have contacted several
Copper Gutter Manufacturer's directly Slate & Copper Gutter from
Erie, PA who seems like a good source but I don't have the
expertise to really know if these are the right guys?

Who could help me with this project? I need around 490 feet
of gutter installed?:confused::confused:

You might check with local sheetmetal shops that do architectural sheetmetal work.
