What is the Cost of Replacing Guttering?

What is the Cost of Replacing Guttering?

Guttering is your home's first line of defence against the weather so ensuring it is in good working order is imperative. When you notice something wrong, it is important to address the problem as soon as possible. If repair is not possible, you may have to replace your guttering entirely. But how much does this cost? This blog will look at the factors that could affect the price of your new guttering.

How Much is it to Replace Guttering?

The price of your new guttering will depend on an array of different factors. Length of guttering, guttering material, labour, and location will all have an impact on the final cost.

What Affects the Cost of Replacing Guttering?

As mentioned above, there are various elements that will affect the cost of replacing your guttering.

  • Gutter material – the most popular choice of gutter material is PVC, but you can also choose from cast iron, aluminium, and copper. Each of these materials will come with a different price tag.

  • Type of gutter components being replaced – it may be that your damaged gutter only needs one component to be replaced i.e. the down pipe or a gutter support bracket.

  • Size of house and length of guttering – the amount of guttering you need will affect the final price. The larger the house, the more guttering is needed, and therefore the higher the cost.

  • Whether scaffolding is needed – scaffolding may not always be needed, but if you have a particularly tall house, it should be a cost to factor into your gutter replacement project.

  • Labour – the cost of labour will depend on the size of your home and the length of time it will take to install your new guttering. Labour costs may also vary depending on the company, so it is a good idea to gather at least three quotes before making a choice.

Types of Guttering

Guttering is available in myriad materials, from PVC and cast iron, to aluminium and copper. The material you choose will impact the final cost of your new guttering. PVC is considered the most cost effective and long-lasting option, whilst cast iron and copper, although just as long lasting, will be more expensive.

In addition to the material of your guttering, the style, size, and depth will also affect its price. For example, National Plastics guttering is available in standard and deep half round, deep square, and Ogee, each offering a different capacity and style.

How Much Will It Cost to Replace Guttering on My Home?

As mentioned above, there are varying factors that will affect the price of your new guttering – material, size, labour, location, etc.

However, to give you a rough idea of the cost of a new PVC guttering system, here at National Plastics our prices range from £11.24 to £35.42 per 4 metres depending on capacity and colour. This means the cost for a standard home with 20m of guttering will range from £56.20 to £177.10.

If you also need to replace your PVC downpipes or would like to coordinate the colour of your downpipes to your new guttering, you can expect to pay between £9 and £15, again depending on colour and capacity.

Why Would I Need to Replace My Gutter?

There are many reasons you may need to replace your gutter including:

  • Holes or leaks

  • Missing sections of guttering

  • Blockages

  • Loose or sagging segments of guttering

  • A change of style or to add curb appeal.
