I hope this is an ok place to ask this question. I’m wondering if anyone here has any knowledge on what a “good” estimate might be for gutters on my house and could help me out.
I have a ranch with hip roofs, approximately 300’ of seamless gutter to be installed. There are 8 outside corners and 4 inside corners to be done, 5 downspouts to be installed.
The current gutter system is old, leaks and I’ve added a new pitched roof in place of a flat roof on the attached garage where gutters need to be tied in. I figured I’d just replace everything while I’m at it.
I’ve called numerous companies for estimates, my problem is - only on has shown up! I’m not one to chase after contractor for an estimate because it shows how they will be if hired. I have faith in the one who has shown up but since I don’t have anything to compare it to I don’t know if the price is right. I have talked to one person who had them do theirs and their workmanship seems good.
So they are quoting $1500 for the job with me taking down the old gutters. Does this sound about right for what I’ve described? Too high? Too low (AKA, red flag)?
I’d think the job would be a contractors dream, very easy access because the roof is low (ranch, hip roof so no high spots, everything on the same level) and lots of footage ($). I’m surprised in this market I’m having a hard time getting a contractor!
Thanks very much in advance!
