How Much Does It Cost to Replace Gutters? (including video introduction)

gutter replacement

Job 1
Lets assume gutter replacement to all three sides of a semi with a bedroom bay window and no ladder access problems. You are having cheap and cheerful (and perfectly acceptable) 4” (100mm) “half round” black plastic guttering, easily connectable to your neighbours stuff (they had theirs done 2 months ago) with no down pipe renewal.

Including buying and tipping, it will take 2 men, 1.5 days, so with materials……..£585.00

Job 2
As above but with either an additional new down pipe, or replace an existing one (and shoe)!…………£690.00

Job 3
A larger detached house now, with a more complex guttering configuration, allowing for four new down pipes and full gutter replacement. This will take 3 days + materials and going to the tip……….£950.00

Job 4
If you really insist on just a repair……….To fix up to three leaking joints on CAST IRON guttering.

Here the roofer will release (with great difficulty) the square nut that has been holding the joint together since long before England were rubbish at football. He will dry and clean the joint with a wire brush, apply some gutter sealant and then bolt it back together. This can all be done from a ladder………….

Gutter Cleaning Guide and Information Sheet

Cleaning out guttering is done from ladders, usually about 2 years after it should have been done. It’s amazing what gets up into a gutter: dead birds, tennis balls (these are perfectly sized to block the outlets), twigs, grass, and the finest alluvial soil known to man. (Ask him to dump it on your roses).

He will usually scoop the detritus out with a trowel and dump it into a bucket that is dangling from his ladder - make he does - if he just lets it drop, it will splatter everywhere and it’s truly filthy stuff!
