The less expensive option up front would be one of the snap together PVC systems, buttt, you get what you pay for.

As far as competing sheet metal systems, steel, anodized, copper, kynar 500, etc..., you would probably wind up paying a significant premium for any of those alternatives.

.032 gutter coil stock really does give you the most bang for your buck.

What do you consider, "Too Expensive"?

I consider doing the job correctly with the most efficient materials and workmanship the first time the best expenditure of your investment.

shop around. i found that in my area a company would come out and hang seamless for barely more than buying snap together cost. i have a 1985 ranch home and wound up with 2 50ft runs, a 10ft run and 5 downspouts all installed seamless galvanized for $400
