Gutters and fascia replacement


I live in the STL area and I am looking to replace my gutters and fascia because some of the wood is rotten and the gutters aren't tilted right.

My house is a single story about 1500 sq ft. How much should I expect to pay for this project?

I have received a quote that is $ $2115 for gutters and screen. And additional $11.50/ft for wood and fascia. This seems like it'll end up being too expensive. Is this what I should expect to pay?

No one on this site is going to guess on prices. No one knows where you live, what labor rates area, material cost, or has seen the job.
If you think the price is to high get some more prices.
It's a really simple job so cost should be low.

Not sure what your talking about, if you looked around on this site some more it's a DIY site what's more then willing to help you figure out how to do things, not a price my job for me site.
If you look around you will see where hundreds of people are asking how much a job cost, all get the same ansewer, impossable to give a price over the net.
Sorry if this offends you, just the way it is.
The people on here are from all over the world, how would we know what anything cost in your area?

This is a DIY website, so do it yourself! If its only one story it should be pretty straight forward. Use cedar or prime and paint white pine ( prime both sides ).

Go for it!

Here's a question you might know the answer to, how do you delete a persons comment from your thread?

Thank you. I have done a lot of projects on my house but this one I would like to leave it to the pros coz I fixed some of it last year and I have a different problem now.

I don't want to keep messing with it. I fix A last year this year it's B.

Start with a materials list...
X linear feet of fascia board and Y linear feet of gutter then allow Z for hardware etc...
2 men and a boy for a day or two...
some clean up time and material disposal...

BMC -

No one is going to spoon feed you when you are just looking for prices with nothing in the way of real information provided (length, height, materials, access, conditions). You got 2 cents worth of responses because you provided less than 2 cents of hard information. You also forgot the question of the contractor doing your "DIY project" being qualified and insured. The last time I came off a ladder from a 10' high gutter the hospital bill was over $173,000, not including doctors plus 3 months in the hospital. Fortunately, the home owner and I had good insurance.

I would suggest you do it yourself and learn a bit. Apparently your last "fix" was not complete or successful.

When you voluntarily go on a forum you open yourself up and cannot selectively delete responses you do not like.

"How much will it cost?" Asking for price estimates here.
