Whether you’re planning to repair or replace your gutters, contractors will usually inspect your roof and its existing gutters before they give you a quote. But the method in giving gutter quotes can slightly differ, which is partly the reason why they don’t share the same price. To understand how this is usually done, ABC Seamless Siding shares their insight:

How Do Professionals Come Up With a Gutter Quote?

One of the first things gutter contractors would do is to lay a tape measure on the ground and measure the length in feet of each roof edge of where the gutters were installed. They’ll then use a ladder and extend the measuring tape from the ground to the roof edge, then measure the roof edge to your home’s exterior wall, adding the two measurements together to know the total length of the downspout.

Afterward, they’ll add up the lengths of each roof edge to know the total length of gutters needed for your replacement project. They’ll also multiply the downspout length times the number of downspouts needed for your new gutter system so that they’ll know the length of downspouts needed for the installation. 

What a Gutter Quote Typically Includes

Keep in mind that the cost for the overall length needed for your new gutters will vary depending on the type of material you choose. The average cost of a vinyl gutter per foot will be around three to six dollars, while zinc can cost around 20 to 25 dollars. You’ll also find other costs in the quote as well, such as the labor fee and additional taxes.
