If I had been renting in a complex in the US, the landlord would have had a crew over with power tools. They'd have measured, taken out the scrap, gone to Home Depot and replaced the gutters in a couple hours. Here, it was one guy, or one guy with his helper, a drill, and handsaws, and it took most of the week, but my rent is US $150 a month, not $400 to whatever space equivalent to this would be in Philadelphia now.
Next job, after much discussing other options, will be leveling and tiling the passageway floor so that water drains better.
