Aluminum Gutter Installation Cost

Use the information below to find out more about the cost of installing aluminum gutters and downspouts. If you are ready to get started on your project, get a free cost estimate from a local professional now. On average, the cost of installing aluminum gutters is about $5.73 per linear foot. The cost of installation will depend on several different factors.

Use the information below to help you estimate the cost of aluminum gutter installation.

1. Regional cost difference. Where you live can impact the cost of your project significantly. You should expect to pay more for gutter installation in bigger cities, like New York and Los Angeles. The cost should be somewhat less in the suburbs and rural areas. Additionally, if you live in a remote area, you may need to pay a travel surcharge.

2. Are you replacing your existing gutters? The removal and disposal of the existing guttering will add to the cost of installing the new gutters.

3. Are you installing seamless gutters? Seamless gutters are fabricated at the job site with a truck-mounted machine. They are made to fit the size of your home, minimizing the number of seams and joints that are needed. Seamless gutters are more expensive, but they are also less prone to leaks.

4. Cost per linear foot. The size of your home will be an important cost factor. Most gutter contractors calculate the cost of installation based upon the linear footage of guttering required for the project. Larger homes will need larger gutters and taller downspouts, adding to the material cost of the project. Additionally, you should expect to pay more for installing gutters on two and three-story homes.

5. What size gutters are being installed? Larger gutters are going to be more expensive. For instance, 6-inch gutters are likely to cost more than 5-inch gutters. However, the larger gutters can handle much greater quantities of rainwater.

6. Gutter style and profile. There are many different styles of gutters. The most common gutter profile is the K-style or OGEE gutter. However, box gutters, half-round, and many other profiles are available. The cost of each style can very greatly.

7. Roof steepness. If your roof is very steep, this may add to the cost of installing your aluminum gutters. Also, if your roofing is made of fragile materials like slate or tile, this may also complicate the installation process.

8. Are downspouts included in the cost estimate? When reviewing a cost estimate from a gutter contractor, make sure that the cost of downspouts is included. Downspouts come in different shapes and sizes. Larger downspouts are better equipped to handle heavy rainfall, but they will add to the cost of your project. Burying downspouts underground will add significantly to the cost as well.

9. Gutter covers and gutter guards. Installing a gutter protection system will definitely add to the cost of your project. There are many different options to choose from, including traditional gutter guards, gutter brushes, and foam gutter guards.

10. Are all of the necessary materials included? The cost of clips, hangers, joints, and end caps should be included in the cost of installation. However, downspout extensions, rain chains, splash boards, and other accessories may add to the cost of your gutter installation or replacement project.
