Yes, you need to contact a roofing company to check it out. Possibly need a rain diviter installed. Possibly need a gutter installation company to swap out current gutters for larger commercial size gutters.
I agree with Ryan's answer. I would add that you can also pull the gutter spikes and replace them with gutter screws available at any of the big box stores. They typically come with the driver bit required, I'd also recommend having an impact driver for the job.
Probably need to have the skylight reflashed. Skylights need to have special flashing kits designed for skylights. Have a professional come to inspect to see if you have a curb mount or deck mount skylight and they will be able to give you a price to replace your current flashing with a new airtight skylight flashing kit.
As a basement finishing company we're seeing a lot of granite for wet bars, lighter colors. Bathrooms and tile are often favoring gray. Brushed nickel and steel are the most common hardware and fixtures. Clean,simple, easy to mix up with rustic or modern decor.
Brenda, This can depend on the building materials and the darker the color of the materials. In my experience this seems to be more common with darker colors as they tend to absorb more heat than the lighter ones. I've witnessed this happen with metal roofs, gutters and siding.

Without knowing the specifics of the skylight brand and condition, we would not be able to answer the question with confidence.
We use Velux skylights. During re-roofs, we typically find most skylights are not in good condition and/or were not installed properly.
First make sure there is weather stripping between the skylight frame and the curb, assuming this is a curb mount. sometimes there is not a seal inserted at that joint. If that is not an issue, then you could certainly install a frame around the well at the ceiling level and insert a piece of clear acrylic to keep cold from dropping into the room. I have done this at a previous residence with great success. Good luck
We're still seeing a lot of demand for granite and/or quartz countertops. With the quartz, people are doing more subtle patterns and a lot of marble looks (white with light veining or similar). Cabinets seem to be following a gray/neutral/white color palette, with lots of clean lines. We're still seeing stainless steel and brushed nickel for appliances and hardware, however we saw quite a bit of matte brass and gold tones at KBIS this year. That seems to be making a comeback, but I think that might still depend on your area. I think oil-rubbed bronze is probably on its way out, unless you're doing a rustic look. Hope that helps!
