Most homeowners choose seamless gutters because of the value and home protection they provide.
Without seams, seamless gutters are better looking and eliminate much of the leak threat posed by the sectional gutters with multiple seams on each side of a house.
Aluminum offers the best combination of cost and durability, which makes it the most popular choice with a cost of $6.50 to $13.50 per linear foot installed including downspouts, brackets, and endcaps.
Copper is the upscale choice at $20 to $30 per linear foot and often includes the maintenance cost of polishing it unless a natural copper patina is preferred.
Coated steel is the budget choice at $5.85 to $10.15 per linear foot installed including downspouts, brackets, and endcaps.
Common Seamless Gutter Project Scenarios
We’ve configured a 2,000 square foot home in three different ways to show how the linear feet of seamless gutters are affected. Each hypothetical house in the examples below has an attached 2.5-car garage (approx. 22 x 26 feet).
Home #1: 36’x56’ ranch
Home #2: 25’x40’ saltbox two-story
Home #3: Bi-level
