Cost of 5" seamless eavestroughs?


Hello out there team DIY.. I'm calling mercy on trying to fix my own eavestroughs.. I've been up a 32 foot ladder in the cold and rain about 30 times in the last 12mos trying to bend, brace, clean and repair these darn things and I've had enough.. Gotta call in a pro.. Thats where I'm hoping you all may be able to help me.. I've had 3 quotes on 200ft of 5" seamless with gutter guards, 5 down spouts and snow brakes on about 30ft of the total roof where snow and ice is sliding off in walking areas (its a steel roof)..
I've got quotes from $2100 to $5000 so far and everyone seems to be talking about the same stuff.. Aluminum gutters etc.. Can anyone shed some light on how much per foot is an appropriate price?.. I have no problem paying a fair price (you get what you pay for), just don't want to get rooked.. Thanks in advance for any help!.. sb

What gauge of aluminum is being used? .025, .027, or .032?

What type of fasteners? Gasketed hex head wood-tek screws or spikes or nails or some other type of screw?

What type of hangers? spike and ferrule, or hidden hangers? HangiTite or RayTek?

How far away are the hangers going to be spaced? 16" or 24" on center or in every rafter tail or random or farther apart that the above spacings mentioned?

Are they hanging gutters, requiting a t-strap or flush mounted fascia gutters?

What size downspout piping? 2" x 3" or 3" x 4" or 4" or 5" round?

What brand of snow guards?

Do they use blind pop rivets or zinc zip screws?

Whay brand of sealant will they use?



A quality job does cost more. Who is providing the better specifications and more importantly, the better list of references and testimonials?

What size are the gutters as well? You have to compare apples to apples.

Gentleman.. looks like I need to get much more detailed info from the companies that quoted me.. Rivets, hangers, distances, brand names of products etc.. I didn't get any of that in the quotes and never would have known to ask.. Just shows you that knowledge is everything.. Thanks guys!..sb
