Your gutters protect your roofing system and the rest of your home’s exterior from water damage. If the gutters you have are already rusting or sagging, prompt replacement may be necessary. For cases like this, it’s important for homeowners to at least have an idea of the potential cost. In this post, our experts at Thompson Roofing and Construction share the factors that determine how much money you need for new gutters.
When it comes to gutter materials, the price depends on the type and quality. For example, vinyl and plastic are cheaper but they tend to crack and leak at the seams. There are also aluminum gutters for lightweight and easy installation. When it comes to longevity and durability, copper gutters are a great choice, however, the cost is higher.
Service costs are mostly based on your location, and do not always indicate the quality of workmanship. The size of your gutter installation project and the roof pitch also play a significant role in how much you will pay for labor.
When planning your project’s budget, you must also consider extra costs due to necessary accessories. These additions include hangers, splash blocks, flashing and downspout extensions that will add on to the total cost of your new gutters.
Disposal or Hauling
Before the actual installation of gutters, you’ll need professional assistance to remove and dispose of your old gutters. To avoid unexpected expenses, consider disposal and hauling costs when making a budget.
