While gutter systems definitely add to your home’s curb appeal, their most important responsibility is to direct water flow away from your roof, walls, and foundation. This is why when your gutters start getting older or damaged, it’s important to replace them immediately. Of course, you’ll want to know how much that’s going to cost.
A gutter replacement doesn’t stop once your gutters are attached to your roof. Downspouts should always be installed along with your new gutters. Downspouts help keep the running water diverted away from your home.
As with replacement roofs or siding, replacement gutters come in a wide variety of materials to choose from. Always keep in mind that the material you choose can affect your project’s overall price and the gutters sustainability. When choosing the materials there are pros and cons to each, the materials pricing vary as does the quality. Choosing the cheaper material now could mean spending more in the future to maintain or even replace your gutters sooner than expected.
Once you’ve chosen the materials, you should consider labor. There are varying prices in the market, but if you’re working with a reputable company they can typically lay out the pricing for you and explain why it will cost that much. It’s not uncommon for lesser experienced workers to offer cheaper bids in order to attract potential clients. The problem with hiring them is the probability of costly installation errors.
