Copper (?) gutter needing repair

One of the outside gutters lining the edge of the roof has bent and lets all the water pour out onto the patio in a heavy storm.

What sort of service am I looking for in the yellow pages to repair this? (In German speaking part). Husband thinks it is a Sanitar but I think that is a plumber.

Anyone please?

I think you should start with a roof specialist.

Thank you both of you. Have now located in the yellow pages a Spengler who says he is also a dachtechnik .. so am about to ring them up.

Good luck. Be careful about companies who charge just to come out and look and give you a written quotation. Many don't, but some do. The trouble is they don't tell you in advance.

Repairs can be taken off your taxes if you own your home so do keep all receipts.
