Your gutters protect your roofing system and the rest of your home’s exterior from water damage. If your existing gutters are rusting or sagging, it may be time to consider replacing them. An inefficient gutter system doesn’t just look unsightly but can also cause problems to different parts of your house.
Keep reading to find out which factors can affect the cost of new gutters.
When it comes to gutter materials, you usually get what you pay for. Vinyl and plastic are low-cost options, but they tend to crack and leak at the seams. Galvanized steel and zinc are also popular gutter materials. At Patriot Roofing LLC, we install high-quality aluminum and copper gutters. Aluminum gutters are known for their light weight and ease of installation, while copper gutters excel in longevity and durability.
The cost of labor mostly depends on your location, and it does not always indicate the quality of work. The size of your gutter installation project and the roof pitch will play a significant role in your labor costs. A gutter contractor will usually take around seven hours to install a 50-foot gutter section.
Downspouts create a controlled path to ensure water reaches ground level and effectively diverts it away from your home. Most times, the gutter material extends to the downspout.
When planning your project’s budget, you must also consider the necessary accessories. Hangers, splash blocks, flashing and downspout extensions will all add up to the total cost of your new gutters. Another thing to take note of is the cost of disposal or hauling.
