What is the Typical Cost of New Gutters in Wichita?

by Apr 7, 2024


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 will vary as labor, material, and metal prices change frequently. There are two main factors to any contracting job cost: labor and materials. You can expect to pay between $4.00 to $6.80 per linear foot for installation. This would be the cost for the installation only – the cost of materials varies more widely (with more details on gutter types below), but a broad range you might be able to expect is between $5.00 & $11.00 per foot. In our experience, a realistic range for combined total install cost is $9.00 to $15.00 per foot. Note that the dimensions of a particular house will affect this cost, particularly on the labor side, depending on how much complexity there is. An exact amount for your particular home or building would need to be calculated in an estimate by a roofing professional.

Note that these ranges reflect a typical 5-inch gutter, which is the most common type found on a residential single-family home in the lower Midwest. Another variable in many gutter jobs is that if you have existing gutters & downspouts, gutter removal, plus any fascia repairs will also have to be calculated into the total cost you can expect.

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

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

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

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.  

Copper Gutters

Are you looking for a gutter that will take your Wichita home’s curb appeal to the next level? Copper gutters are beautiful from their initial, shiny installation to their distinct, aged patina years down the road. While copper is a very expensive gutter solution, the durability and longevity of copper gutters are unmatched. Combined with the visual appeal they offer, some folks will find that copper is exactly what they’re looking for despite the price tag.  

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.  

If you feel like your home is in need of new gutters, be sure to contact a roofing professional for an estimate of the total cost and what options would be best for you and your home. Please feel free to visit Rhoden Roofing for more information on gutters and all of your roofing needs.
