Similarly, you may ask, which is better aluminum or vinyl gutters?
Unfortunately, although the vinyl is much less expensive than aluminum, it also does not have nearly as long of a lifespan. The last difference is the fact that vinyl gutters are installed in sections, but aluminum gutters are seamless. Therefore, aluminum gutters are less prone to leak.
Additionally, are wider gutters better? In this case, bigger is better. Large rain gutters can handle almost double the amount of water and the oversized downspout that comes with it also has more capacity for debris. This translates to better protection from water damage and probably means less upkeep as well because your gutters won't clog so easily.
Also know, what should I look for when replacing gutters?
Basic 5” Standard Seamless Gutter Qualifications: Gutters over 40' in length should have 2 downspouts. Gutters do not overflow on regular or normal rains. No upper roofs gutters should be draining into lower 5″ gutters. You've had 5” previously and you haven't had overflow.
What is a good price for gutter installation?
The average cost to install galvanized or aluminum gutters is approximately $4 to $9 per linear foot. There are also vinyl gutters which are much easier to install, and which run at roughly $3 to $5 per linear foot. Therefore, installing from 125 to 200 feet of gutters will cost $1050-$2400.
