Need to replace your gutters and wondering how much it will cost you? Every home has unique requirements when it comes to gutters, which affects the price.

  1. Materials — In addition to standard galvanized steel gutters, you can choose from aluminum, vinyl and upscale options such as copper and stainless steel. Different materials have different costs. Weigh the benefits against the cost and see which one strikes the best balance between lifespan, performance, maintenance requirements and of course your budget. Many homeowners find that seamless gutters are the best option.

  1. Labor — When it comes to labor, you get what you pay for. The more skilled the installer, the less likely you’ll be dealing with gutter leaks, as well as premature wear and tear. Certain types of gutter systems, such as aluminum gutters, require additional skills as the gutters are built on-site, as opposed to traditional gutter systems manufactured and cut to 10-foot segments.

  1. Size — Simply put: the bigger the roof, the more it will cost to replace the gutters. The steeper the slope of the roof, the faster rainfall flows to the roof edge; therefore, the gutters will need to have a larger capacity.

  1. Hangers, Fasteners and Accessories — There are several types of hangers that can be used depending on the existing fascia and the chosen gutter system. The downspout may require extensions or additional features such as downspout diverters. You may opt to have gutter covers installed. As with the choice of materials, it’s important to weigh the benefits against the cost. A gutter protection system may cost extra, but the time this product will save you in gutter maintenance over the years may make it well worth the investment.
