Having the right gutter guards installed on your home is a worth while investment towards keeping your gutters clean and water out of your crawlspace, basement, or away from your home's foundation. Clogged and leaking gutters can not only cause damage to your home but can also put you in an unsafe position while trying to clean them and requires a lot of time and effort.
As important as gutters are to a home, you may be surprised to find out that gutter guards are relatively inexpensive and much more affortable than you may have guessed. A good average cost estimate of having gutter guards installed on your home will range somewhere between $3.00-$6.00 per lineal foot. This translates to a mid sized home with 200 lineal feet of gutter costing between $600 and $1,200 dollars installed. Keep in mind these are averages and cost could be less or more depending on several factors.
Cost Drivers of Gutter Guard
Probably the biggest driver of the cost of gutter guard is whether or not you are replacing your existing gutters. The cost to install gutter guards on a job that is already in progress is always less than just doing gutter guards alone. The idea is pretty simple, if we are already set up installing new seamless gutters it's especially easy to go ahead and install the gutter guards.
Another cost factor when estimating the price you will pay for gutter guards is the roof pitch. Roofs that are easy to walk on or "walkable" always cost less than roofs that are "non-walkable" as the gutter guards on non-walkable roofs must be installed off ladders.
Height and accessibility will play a role as well. The more difficult to access gutters or gutters far off the ground will put you towards the high end of the $3 - $6 dollar a foot range.
Gutter guards protect your home, keep you safe, and mean you'll spend weekends with friends and family instead of cleaning clogged gutters.
