Your Gutter Repair questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

How much does gutter repair cost near me?

Gutter repair costs $100 to $450 total for most average jobs. Fixing sagging gutters or adjusting the pitch to improve the drainage will cost $75 to $300. A downspout replacement costs $2 to $4 per linear foot.

  • Built-in box gutters are the most expensive types to repair at $40 to $180 per linear foot to replace damaged sections.
  • Gutter cleaning costs $100 to $250 on average, or up to $400 for a 3-story home. This price includes cleaning work only without any repairs or replacing parts.

Should I repair or replace my gutters?

You should repair most gutters if they have minor damage in 1 to 2 places only, have never failed before, and are less than 10 years old.

You should replace your gutters when they are:

  • Sagging down and hanging from the roof or siding
  • Showing many cracks, holes, or rust spots
  • Overflowing every time it rains
  • Causing rot on the fascia boards
  • Eroding the landscaping below
  • Leaving water puddles around the foundation

New gutter installation costs $6 to $17 per linear foot for a replacement.

How do I know if my gutters need repairing?

You will know that your gutters need repairing when:

  • The gutters start coming loose.
  • You notice that the downspout isn't draining when it rains.
  • Rust or leaks are visible on the gutters.
  • You see birds or plants living in your gutters.
  • Mold is visible on the gutters.
  • The siding has stains on it near the gutters.
  • More than 1 year has passed since you cleaned the gutters.

What happens if you don’t repair gutters?

If you don't repair gutters, then the consequences include:

  • The gutters will eventually fall off the roof.
  • Overflowing gutters or missing gutters cause water damage to the home's foundation.
  • Your yard will flood as water accumulates around the home perimeter.
  • Pools of water will attract pests since the gutters aren't draining rainwater.
  • Pests will nest inside your clogged gutters on the roof.
  • Mold can grow in damp gutters that don't drain, and the water makes the eaves rot.

How long does gutter repair take?

Gutter repairs take 1 to 2 hours minimum or up to a full day for multiple repairs. The total repair time depends on the job complexity, home size, site conditions, and the gutter type.

Does home insurance cover gutter repair?

Most home insurance doesn't cover gutter repair for damages due to neglecting to clean the gutters regularly. However, your homeowners insurance can cover gutter repairs if the cause of damages were sudden accidents, such as a falling tree, lightning strike, fire, or a hurricane.

The coverage varies depending on the type of insurance you have.

Can you repair seamless gutters?

You can repair seamless gutters for minor jobs like replacing fasteners, sealing a small hole, and re-attaching loose gutters. However, bigger repairs require a full replacement for seamless gutters because they are all connected in one long piece. You cannot replace only a small section of seamless gutters.

Seamless gutters cost $6 to $20 per linear foot installed on average.
