- Cost can add up quickly, especially if you’re a novice and have never attempted a Rain Gutter Guard installation before. I would strongly recommend you hire a licensed and Insured Rain Gutter Guard contractor to perform the installation for you.
- Be sure to have a copy of the Rain Gutter Guard Manufacturer’s recommended installation requirements before starting, to make sure your project doesn’t end up costing you more money in the long-run.
Rain Gutter Guard – Pricing and Installation Cost Checklist
- Get at least 3-5 estimates before hiring a Rain Gutter Guard contractor — estimates are typically free, unless it’s a service call for a repair.
- Expect the Rain Gutter Guard prices to fluctuate between various companies – each and every company have different operation expenses and over-head.
- Try to get prices in late Fall, early winter – you should expect aggressive pricing discounts by waiting for a contractor’s down season.
- Try to budget and additional 7-15% more on top of what our calculator gives out – I.e; difficult configurations, patterns, bump-outs, radius’s etc. The additional complexity of your gutter-line will add to the Rain Gutter Guard costs.
- Visit every supply house that sell your particular brand of Rain Gutter Guard and try to negotiate a better price with each supplier – I save on average 20%.
- Before having new Rain Gutter Guard installed onto your home, be sure to check to see whether or not your need to replace your roof. If your roof is in bad shape, or close to it, have your new Rain Gutter Guard installed after a new roof install so your gutter’s don’t get banged up.
- Remember, there are multiple styled homes in the U.S – from: Contemporary, colonial, cape-cod style, ranch, bungalow, victorian, etc. So keep that in mind and try to budget a little more, before starting your Rain Gutter Guard project.
