Gutter question


I moved this from Carpentry forum:
Not sure if this is the right forum, but any idea what is a reasonable charge for 35' of 5"K seamless gutter installed with matching downspout (2nd story, plain white)?
I'm trying to get a rough idea of the cost.
TIA,
Bob

Gutter question


Seriously, you can get more than a "Good Idea" of what it would cost if you contacted some of your local gutter contractors in your area and requested a proposal from them.

Anything we say is based on the standard labor rate that we pay in our areas, so we could throw you way off base, seeing as it could be anywhere from $500.00 to $1,000.00 and each price might be right for your area.

Gutter question


It's generally cheaper per ft to get a larger job done.
$450 is a minimum charge in our area but you could get 80 ft of gutter for that. Is this a re & re? Do you need downpipe? How many places do they have to cut in for old downpipe? how many corners?
There are a few variables.

Gutter question


i did as Ed recommends and found a place right up the road that does one-piece on-site for $3.00 a foot.
$14.00 ea. downspout. this is drop-off price for you to DIY.....for a bit more, they'll put it up for you.
hope this helps....

Gutter question


It is 35' straight shot, no corners. I am trying to get 3 estimates but with all the rain locally of late, I guess business is good. I'm waiting at least a week for them to show and was thinking of doing it myself if the $s were a little crazy. I think i"ll wait for the estimates to come and at least now I know a rough range as to what is reasonable. Thanks to all.

Gutter question


if you DIY and buy materials at the home center you will have seams. Seams suck on gutters. I had my old house done. Color matched to trim, 8 or 10 downspouts, probably 100' of gutter. Total cost was about $700. Too cheap for me not to have someone do it. I think I removed my old ones as I recall and saved a few bucks.

Gutter question


What is to be removed? How close are the buildings?

No less than $500 and that's on a simple job, almost charity.

Gutter question


Quote from company: 5" K, white, seamless, 0.032 gauge, installed using hangers not nail/ferrule, with new 2x3 downspout: $374.
With gutter guard: $827.
Sound reasonable?

Gutter question


Sounds reasonable to me.
Forget the gutter guards though if you are in an area with any snow. Any roofer will tell you that they can cause problems.


You really can't expect a guy to give an estimate, do the job, supply materials, and clean up for any less than that.

Gutter question


$450 for gutter guard ouch
I paid $1 apiece for 3' sections
In 4 winters I only had problems last year due to LOTS of snow & little melting in between succesive storms
