Nowadays – as we slowly exit the recession – the biggest and most popular question we hear concerning new gutter installation is: “What does the average gutter installation cost?” It wasn’t the type of question any major gutter installation wanted to answer because gutter costs vary depending on the project. As well as two different gutter installation companies – for example – using the same materials and suppliers – can produce two different gutter installations. Price is a very quantitative thing to measure – whereas peace of mind, safety, and security are all qualitatively measred. Simply put – while price is an important thing to consider – you should consider other variables when selecting a gutter installation company.
To answer the question – however – based on the average sized “Vancouver Special” home – the typical costs for new gutter and downpipe installation are around $1,000 to $2,000. If you are looking to have Alu-Rex screening installed – for continuous hangar protection – and for Leafguard protection – then the average additional costs are about $1,000 extra. Of course – if you don’t want aluminum gutters and downpipes installed – and are interested in having copper or zinc installed – your gutter costs will start at aroud $5,000 – and could exceed $15,000.
Are you looking for slightly thicker gutter? The costs are about 10-15% more on each standard gutter installation for thicker aluminum. Do you want aluminum screws used? Figure on spending about $100-$200 extra for the new gutter installation. There are definitely many options to consider when having new gutters and downpipes installed. Just because you have three quotes – and two are similar in price – and one quote seems grossly over priced – you need to ask why there is such an increase in price?
