Like most home improvement projects, a gutter installation project doesn’t have set pricing. The overall project cost, in fact, will depend on several important factors.
Gutters are available in different materials, each one having its own pros and cons. For instance:
- Vinyl and plastic are cost-effective, but don’t last long, especially in cold weather.
- Galvanized steel is a bit more expensive and durable, but is prone to rusting.
- Aluminum is priced depending on the metals market. It doesn’t rust and is lightweight yet durable. Aluminum is the staple material in seamless gutters.
- Copper is the most expensive gutter option, but it’s incredibly strong and rust-resistant. Copper gutters can last decades and as they wear down, taking on a lovely patina.
If you’re having trouble deciding on a gutter material, consulting a premier residential roofing and gutter company like Pressure Point Roofing, Inc. will help.
Gutters generally come in two types: sectional and seamless. Sectional gutters are the traditional option, and they involve piecing together metal gutter segments using adhesives and stringing them along the roofline. While a sectional system is more cost-effective, its many seams leave nothing to be desired.
You should go for seamless gutters instead. They use a single, continuous piece of metal that’s precisely measured and crafted to fit the roofline perfectly. Seamless gutters only have seams at the corners, making them less prone to leaks compared to sectional ones. Their smooth appearance also adds a neat and finished look to your home. But since their craft and installation process requires specialization, they’re also costlier.
- Optional Addition
If you want to keep your gutters in good shape and reduce the need for frequent cleaning, why not have a gutter protection system installed? It filters leaves and other loose debris so they don’t clog up your gutters. At the same time, it ensures smooth draining performance by allowing only rainwater into the system. This adds to your project expenses, of course, but it’s one investment to consider.
