Gutters tend to be the unsung heroes of our homes, guiding water away from them to avoid potential damage. They do their jobs completely unnoticed – that is until they don’t. When your gutters need to be replaced you’re sure to notice, and you’ll probably find yourself wondering just how much this unexpected expense is going to set you back.
Average Cost of New Gutters in Wichita
The average cost to install new gutters in Wichita is generally between $900 and $1,500. You can expect to pay between $4.00 to $6.80 per linear foot for new gutter installation depending on the specific options you choose for your gutters.
Home Size and Gutter Cost
Gutters are measured and priced in linear feet. While a professional gutter installer like Rhoden Roofing will make sure to take precise and accurate measurements, there are two simple ways to get a general idea of how many linear feet of gutter you will need for your home. The first is to measure the sides of your home that have gutters installed and add those measurements together. A more quick and dirty method if you don’t have access to measure the home is to divide the square footage of the home by 10.
- 100 linear feet: $400 to $680
- 125 linear feet: $500 to $850
- 150 linear feet: $600 to $1,020
- 175 linear feet: $700 to $1,190
- 200 linear feet: $800 to $1,360
- 225 linear feet: $900 to $1,530
- 250 linear feet: $1,000 to $1,700
Gutter Material and Style
The specific gutter system you choose for your home will greatly impact the cost of your new gutter installation. Rhoden Roofing in Wichita is pleased to offer a wide variety of excellent and affordable gutter options for your Wichita home.
Seamless gutters come in a variety of materials, styles, and colors. These gutters are custom fit to your home which makes them a durable and long-lasting gutter solution. The lack of seams in seamless gutters prevents debris buildup and reduces vulnerability for leaks and cracks making seamless gutters a perfect, low-maintenance option.
Half-round gutters, as the name suggests, a shaped like a half circle. Because of their shape, water and debris flow freely through the gutters which reduces clogs and corrosion. If you’re looking for a very low-maintenance gutter, half-rounds might just be perfect for you. It is important to note, though, that these gutters have a somewhat lower water capacity than other gutter styles, so they may not be suitable for areas that receive a lot of rain – not typically a problem in Wichita where the average precipitation throughout the year is lower than the national average.
K-style gutters are named for the K-shape they have when viewed from the side. If style and design are your main concern, K-style gutter might be just what you’re looking for. The shape of these gutters gives them a classical beauty that compliments any design option for your home’s exterior. K-style gutters can handle copious amounts of rain but fall short in the low-maintenance department. Because of the sharp edges of the k-shape, debris can get caught in the corners of the gutters leading to clogs.
