Gutter Installation Costs

The cost of installing gutters will depend on a number of factors. On average, gutter installation costs an average of $9.45 per linear foot. This average includes materials such as vinyl on the low end ($3.90/LF) to copper on the high end ($18.04/LF). Take a look at our ProMatcher Gutter Installation Cost Report which will provide you some estimated prices in your local area.

Here are some items that will factor into the cost:

1. How many linear feet of guttering do you need installed? This number will be the basis of the contractor’s quote.

2. Is it a new home? Gutter installation costs are generally less expensive if the job doesn’t include the removal and disposal of existing gutters.

3. What type of gutters do you want installed? The cost of installing gutters varies based on the type of gutters you want installed. Gutter material costs range from lowest to highest: vinyl, galvanized, aluminum, wood, copper.

4. Is your house more than one story, or do you have a walkout basement? A contractor will typically charge more for gutter installation when working above a single story. Working above a certain height requires additional personnel and equipment.

5. Do want gutter guards or covers? Adding covers to the gutters will increase gutter installation costs.

6. Do you need downspouts or downspout extensions? Contractors generally charge per linear foot for downspouts. The terrain of your property may necessitate the need for downspout extensions which can add to the cost.

7. What season of the year do you need gutters installed? Having gutters installed during the spring, summer and fall will be less expensive than a winter installation. It may take a contractor more time when working in the elements which may increase the cost.

8. Is the gutter installation an emergency? Did your existing gutter fall or tear away from the house as the result of wind, water, ice or snow? The cost of gutter installation may be affected if the contractor has to make an emergency visit. Gutter installation costs may also increase if the contractor's visit requires working in the elements, or if there was additional damage to your home.
