Your home’s eavestroughs are probably something that you don’t think much about until they have to be cleaned or replaced. Still, your gutters perform an important function for your home, diverting rainwater and melting snow away from your home’s foundation and protecting it from water damage. Fortunately, eavestroughs do not need to be replaced very often as they can last 20 years or more. But when it is time to replace them, you will naturally wonder how much it is going to cost you.
To get a rough estimate, assume that you will pay between $7-$10 per linear foot for 5-inch seamless gutters. If your roof has a more complex slope, that price tag could go as high as $10-$12 per linear foot. To know how many feet you will need, you will need to measure the length around your roof along which the gutters run.
How is the total cost determined?
Like most home renovations in the Brampton and Mississauga areas, the cost of new eavestrough installation is determined by a number of factors.
Gutters come in a variety of materials with varying prices. The cheapest gutters are made from PVC and vinyl, followed by plastic. Aluminum gutters are usually more expensive, but they are by far the most popular choice in Brampton and Mississauga because they are the most lightweight and durable.
Size and Complexity of Project
As stated earlier, homes with a more complex slope will cost more when it comes to eavestrough installation. Part of the reason for this, of course, is that more labour is involved. This is also true of larger homes as well as the number of bends and corners in your home’s roof.
DIY vs. Professional Installation
You may be able to save yourself some money on labour if you install your eavestroughs yourself; however, keep in mind that hanging gutters is not as simple as you might think. If the slant is slightly off one way or the other, your eavestroughs will not function the way that they should, and they won’t offer your home the full protection from runoff water that they were meant to. Therefore, it is normally a smart decision to pay the extra money for professional installation to make sure that your eavestroughs are installed correctly the first time.
Removal and Disposal
If you require that your old eaves be removed and disposed of, you will need to factor this into the price as well. Generally, you can expect to pay around $100 for removal and disposal.
