How Much Do Gutters Cost?
There are different types of gutters that you should be aware of. Below are some of the most common types in the market:
Box gutters are gutters that have been boxed in the middle or edge of your roof. This is an ideal type of guttering if you want the guttering not to be visible or prominent.
Box gutters should be made from high-quality materials like stainless steel or Colorbond to last longer. They should be fitted with emergency overflow so water can be diverted in case it gets blocked or there’s too much water.
As the name suggests, they look like a square and are available in a hi-square or lo-square profile. Square gutters can handle high amounts of water easily. They are commonly made from Zincalume, Colorbond, or galvanised steel.
Square gutters are pleasing to the eyes because of their modern look and they are available in different colours that can suit your taste.
Fascia gutters combine the gutter and fascia. They create one guttering system that removes the need to have a traditional installation of a metal or timber fascia, hence they are directly installed on your roof.
Fascia gutters are made from Colorbond or Zincalume. They are available in different colours and also come in either slotted or plain finish.
Quad gutters are also known as “D” gutters. They are one of the most well-known types of gutters because they suit perfectly for new homes. They can also fit seamlessly with any existing gutters in your home.
These gutters are commonly made from Zincalume, Colorbond, galvanised steel, or stainless steel. They are available in different profiles and widths and can be made with or without slots.
Slotted quad gutters are best suited in areas that experience heavy rainfalls because they allow water to overflow.
These gutters are also known as half-round gutters since they appear like a circle that is cut in half. Round gutters are either semi-circular or have a straight back.
They have a wide diameter which is capable of holding large amounts of water well. Another plus factor is that they are self-cleaning so no need to worry about water getting stuck in your gutter.
Round gutters are made from Zincalume, Colorbond, or galvanised steel and come in different colours to suit your roofing needs. They are a perfect fit for houses that have modern, Spanish, and Tuscan designs.
Since gutters also come in different types, styles, and materials, they vary in costs. Here are the general costs of gutters made from different materials:
- Aluminium gutters can cost about $25 to $65 per metre
- Zincalume gutters cost about $45 to $65 per metre
- Vinyl (PVC) gutters can cost around $30 to $40 per metre
- Stainless steel gutters cost around $75 to $150 per metre
- Copper Gutters can cost around $50 to $75 per metre
- Galvanised guttering installation cost about $90 per metre.
- Colorbond guttering installation costs about $30 to $40 per metre.
Gutter prices for different types
- Copper half round gutter price: $450 per 200mm x 6 lineal metre
- Copper quad gutter price: $225 per 125mm x 4 lineal metre

Factors that Affect the Cost of Guttering
Many factors affect the cost of guttering installation, these are some of the most common ones to take note of:
Gutters are made from different materials such as aluminium, Zincalume, Colorbond, or Vinyl. These materials vary in costs.
For cheaper options, you can use vinyl or aluminum gutters. However, they are not that durable and may need to be repaired or frequently replaced which can be more expensive in the long run.
If you want durability, then stainless steel and copper are the best options. However, they are the most expensive materials available in the market.
Size and length
The size of your home will greatly affect the installation cost. The most common gutter size in Australia is 125mm and 150mm.
Therefore, the larger your home, the more you will spend with your guttering installation because more materials will be used during the process.
Type of gutters
Another factor to be considered is what type of gutter will be used in the installation. There are different types of gutters like fascia, box gutters, square gutters, and the like.
You may expect to pay more if there are other additional accessories needed to be installed like hangers, gutter guards, splash blocks, drains, flashings, just to name a few.
Gutter installation costs will also be greatly affected depending on the accessibility of your home. If your home has many blockages or obstructions along the way, then expect to pay more.
Additionally, if your home has a second floor, gutter installers can charge more. They may need to do scaffolding or acquire other materials to complete the project.
A tall roof may need specialised equipment which may also add more to the cost of installation.
The area where you live can also affect the gutter installation cost. Travel expenses are often added to the cost of installation especially if the installer lives outside his service area.
Hence, it is important to consider hiring a guttering installer near you.
