Gutters, leaders, and downspouts are the oft-forgotten heroes of your home because they protect your home against rain- or snow-related damage to your roof and foundation. They are made to route water away from your foundation and keep the ground around your home from being waterlogged. Without them, your home would likely develop weak points in the foundation, allowing water to enter your home and causing it to become irreparably damaged.

The worst feeling you can have is finding water flowing through a wall or ceiling because your gutters weren’t maintained properly. That’s why it’s crucial for homeowners to regularly clean their gutters and replace them immediately if they are damaged.

Our team at Unified can make it much easier for you to keep your gutters working the right way. We offer a variety of gutters that you can choose from in different colors, materials, and shapes. On average, you can expect to pay $10 to $50 per linear foot for new gutters.

Contact our team today, and we’ll make sure your gutters are ready to give you the protection your home needs.

 

Factors That Influence Gutter Replacement Costs

There are generally three main factors that influence the cost of replacing gutters: the size of your home, the type of gutters, and the material. Unified also offers additional protection with the SureGuard Gutter Screen that will impact the installation cost.

Home Size:

Unified, like most companies, charges per linear foot for a complete gutter replacement, so your home’s height and size affect the material price and labor costs. A larger or longer home naturally requires more linear feet of gutter, which will increase the price.

Type:

There are several types of gutters available, but the three most common are half-round, K-style, and custom-built gutters.

  • Half-round gutters are generally the least expensive option. They are excellent at carrying water but more easily clog with debris, so they require a little more maintenance. Because they have curved sides, they don’t sit flush against the fascia, so brackets are required for installation. Some areas – historic neighborhoods, in particular – require half-round gutters, so check your local ordinances before installation.
  • K-style gutters are slightly more expensive. They resemble their namesake letter when viewed from the side and are the most common type for homes built in the last 50 years. The flat back makes installation easier than half-rounds, but the shape makes them more difficult to clean. K-style gutters carry water better than half-round gutters, which are suitable for rainy climates.
  • Custom-built gutters are not sold in sections that fit together, as they are custom-built for the house out of one long piece of aluminum. This gives them superior protection against rust and leaks, but at a much higher cost.

Material:

Like most other projects on your home, the type of material can impact the price tremendously.

  • Vinyl is the most economical gutter option, but it can be a bit more fragile as the material can crack and become damaged over the years.
  • Aluminum gutters are also easy on the wallet because they’re easy to install. Keep in mind, though, they can also be more prone to damage by debris and wind, so they may not last as long as other options.
  • Copper is extremely durable, and you aren’t likely to replace/repair them as often. However, they are pricier than other options, so they may not be the right fit for every project.
  • Stainless steel is slightly less expensive than copper, but they require a lot of upfront maintenance. They’re generally more resistant to dings and leaks and can last a lifetime if properly installed.

 

Downspouts

The water collected by your gutters has to go somewhere, so you’ll need to install downspouts transporting the rainwater away from your home. Downspouts usually cost the same per linear foot as the gutters themselves, and they require additional accessories to keep them attached to the property.

 

Gutter Screens

Another popular addition for New York gutters is the SureGuard Gutter Screen. These are absolutely worth the cost, especially if you have a lot of high trees near your home and your gutters tend to collect leaves and debris. They can protect your gutter system against damage and save you the trouble – and money – associated with cleaning your gutters.

There are many different types of leaf guards, but the SureGuard screen has a weather-resistant aluminum framework that installs easily on existing gutters with no tools required. No nailing or screwing into your roof, so it won’t void your roof warranty. The versatile screen has a MicroGuard Filtration system designed to keep small twigs, pine needles, and debris from clogging gutters. It fits on both 5” and 6” K-style gutters and is available in three-foot lengths, conveniently packed in boxes of 50.
