Aluminum Gutter – Pricing and Installation Cost Checklist

Right before you go and make your final decision and purchase for the gutters you want, be sure to go through this checklist to fully see and comprehend your options, weighing the costs, and alternatives, perhaps finding a choice that saves you a bit more money. 

  • Be sure that you have received anywhere from 3 – 5 FREE quotes from different gutter contractors. 
  • List the totally different prices you get quoted from the 3 -5 contractors as well as the labor costs, material costs, and other costs you may come across during your project.
  • Try to find discounts or ask for any offers on the aluminum gutter materials with different suppliers. 
  • Some times, we may come across expenses we didn’t account for, so be sure to always include an extra 15% cash buffer from your total budget in case you run into any issues. 
  • Make sure your roof and shingles are in good condition for you to install the gutters, otherwise you may damage it, causing other issues you did not want to have in the first place. 

Factors of Aluminum Gutter Costs

Here is a list of costs to consider/factor when purchasing aluminum gutters

  • It is dependent on the materials and the type
  • Length, width, fittings of the gutter 
  • The preparation that is taken to install the gutters 
  • Seamless gutters (a must)
  • If the home is one or two stories (height)
  • Taxes and potential permit fees, as well as other fees
  • Labor 

That being said, most companies (we can’t speak for others) consider all of the above in their pricing structure. As mentioned earlier, here at Gutter Gurus we have a straight forward pricing structure – $6 per foot.

Aluminum Seamless Gutters

Seamless gutters do cost more than sectional gutters, but you get what you pay for!

Seamless gutters do not leak (when installed properly), however, they can be difficult to install than their sectional counterparts, however, there is plenty of benefits in regards to paying a bit more for seamless gutters than regular DIY sectional gutters.

Aluminum gutters usually tend to leak a lot less than regular gutters, mainly because debris may be caught in the seams of regular gutters.

The only seams seamless gutters have are in the corners or where they meet the downspout. That being said if you’re someone who is contemplating saving a few dollars per foot and using sectional gutters, we highly advise against.

Sectional gutters need to be replaced more often!

Downspouts

Downspouts cost anywhere from $5 – $8 per linear foot for aluminum downspouts, but we keep the price the same = $6.

Vital for removing and disposing of water, most people ask if there is such a thing as a downspout repair. The answer is – it depends. In most cases, replacing the downspout is your best option!

Connectors & Miters

The only additional cost you might find in replacing your gutters are when connectors and miters are needed.

These are the latches, fittings, or hangers used to connect regular aluminum gutters at their seams to prevent any gaps and have a nice seal.

These connectors are also used for attaching separate downspouts on their way down and have it potentially attached against the house. Usually, these aluminum fittings go for $10- $15 per unit and the labor costs are no different than when getting your downspouts and gutters installed.

If you have seamless gutters, the only connector they’ll utilize is for every corner and connecting to the downspout. This is most common for homes with a hip roof.

Final Word on Aluminum Gutter Costs:

Aluminum gutters are the most commonly used material for gutters and downspouts!

Because they are usually inexpensive, but super durable, they are an optimal material to utilize for your gutter at home since they have a great life expectancy after installation.

Not to mention – seamless aluminum gutters come in a variety of colors!

The cost varies on the type of gutter you purchase, the type of gutter, the size, labor, the damage of your previous gutters, etc. As always, a reminder to set up a budget, plus have an extra cushion of money for unforeseen expenses.
