One of the eventualities in owning a home is the natural depreciation of your gutters. At some point, you will need to replace the ones that you have. The process may seem scary, but a home that lacks properly functioning gutters is much more frightening. A constant flow of rainwater not only irritates you as a dweller, but also erodes the foundation of your home. Basement leaks, roof rot, and moldy attics are all likely byproducts of failing gutters.
Material & Labor Investment:
The investment of gutter materials & labor depends a great deal on the type of gutter you select. There are four major choices.
1) Vinyl gutters are the least expensive, costing as little as $4 per piece. Even the nicest vinyl gutters are rarely more than $8.
2) Aluminum is a bit more expensive, starting at $6/linear ft up to $12/linear ft.
3) Steel gutters are much better in quality, and their price reflects this. They start at $11 and often times cost $33/linear ft or more.
4) Copper is the highest quality of all. It costs at least $40/linear ft and usually costs well in excess of $100.
When you purchase new gutters, you'll also want to buy downspout extensions.
You might also have to pay for additional materials like:
- Splash blocks/drains: splash blocks and drains help to direct water away from the foundation and prevent damage. They cost between $5 and $10.
-Flashing: Flashing protects your roof underlayment and siding from potential moisture damage and costs around $10 to purchase.
-Hangers: Gutter hangers give it extra strength and help hold it up, especially when there might be a lot of wind or water draining during a storm. Their prices start at $2 and go up.
DIY VS. Professional:
Having a gutter contractor handle the installation of your new gutters is advisable in that paying for such a service removes a lot of hassle from the process. You want the job done right and with minimal aggravation.
A professional gutter installer should finish the process with a 1800-2200-- Sq ft home in an average of seven hours, which means it's only a day's work in most instances. Even larger scale projects will probably take no more than three days to complete. The downside is the added cost.
