Factors That Affect Your Gutter Replacement Cost

A well-built roof won’t be complete without a proper gutter system that effectively directs water runoff away from your home. Regular cleaning and maintenance are crucial to keeping gutters in good condition, but like the rest of your roofing system, gutters will eventually need to be replaced. A few factors, however, can affect the overall cost of your gutter installation. Our pros at Patriot Gutters explain more below.

Gutter Replacement Cost

How Materials and Labor Affect Gutter Replacement Costs

Your overall costs will come from materials and labor. Gutters and downspouts are available in different types but are usually bought pre-fabricated in lengths of 5, 10 or 15 feet. As for labor costs, don’t settle for less or you’ll end up paying for additional repairs due to subpar workmanship. You’re better off with a licensed and experienced contractor with the knowledge and equipment to map out the lengths of your new gutter system and what works best for your roof.

Gutter Accessories and Materials

Adding certain accessories to your gutter system will also affect the overall installation cost. Gutter guards, for instance, can increase the overall cost but also give a long-term benefit because of their function. They protect your gutters from small debris such as twigs and leaves, keeping gutters clog-free.

The type of gutter material you choose will also affect the cost of your new replacement. Some of the least-expensive options are also some of the most common, such as plastic and vinyl. Popular as they are, they’re not the most reliable especially in colder climates because of their propensity to become brittle and break. Galvanized steel is a much better option compared to vinyl and plastic, but it’s also slightly more expensive and can be susceptible to rust.

If you still want a metal gutter system that won’t easily rust, choose either zinc or aluminum. Keep in mind that the price for both options will vary, but they’re popular materials to use because they are lightweight and easy to install.
