What's a gutter installation cost?

The house I'm buying is a rectangle one story and 1300 sqft. It has an attached garage. The roof was replaced and the outside was painted recently but it appears that they didn't replace the gutters. You can see minor paint peeling already from the rains. I am looking at cost effectiveness. Any ideas what I will spend to install gutters myself? I briefly read about plastic and galvanized. Very much a newb at this so far (not a newb at construction though). So Cal btw.

I would get an estimate from one of the gutter installers that use one piece gutters. They make the gutters on site to match your measurements. No seams=no leaks. I would believe a simple roof could be done for ~$750, but your location will dictate price.

I got my gutters at 1.95 per foot here in NJ. Been 8 yrs and no issues. I see 2.95 per ft advertised now but I think prices have went up since I had them istalled. I think you can still find it cheaper.

It cost me about 250.00 for all gutters, leaders ect...... about 114 ft

If an installer wants to quote gutters with a leaf shield of some sort, you can figure triple the cost of plain gutters.

Good that you brought that up. Can't I just buy that stuff myself and install them after the contractor installs the seamless gutters?

Seamless is the only way to go

$5/foot is about the best you can do around here these days, haven't priced any kind of debris guard

I went to the Home store and put those .99cent for 3 ft plastic ones on. Work great. Cost me about $25. ( Oh I see they are $1.96 now)

i just spent 80 bucks to install the home depot ones, pictured above, in october. i believe they did a great job but of course without getting up there in spring to actually pop them off and check, ill never know. i do know so far in a very very windy december they are all still up and appear to be functioning though.

consumer reports also rated them pretty good if that means anything. very ez to cut and fit where you need to and i had a lot of special areas to do that with. Only problem i have, and i dont know if it's a real problem, is that the water really appears to be coming off them vs into the gutter. i have a thread on here with pics. can you take a peek and see if your guards still have this much water overflowing?
