Cost For Handyman to Install Gutter Guard

Gutter Guard after installation

How much should I pay a Handyman to install leaf guard on my gutters?

This picture shows gutter guard installed on an aluminum seamless gutter. The leaf guard used is made of aluminum and comes in 20' rolls (~$5 each).  After cleaning leaves out of the gutters the guard is installed. In this case, the guard is pushed up under the bottom course of shingles and is then attached to the front of the gutter with sheet metal screws.

Low estimate for materials and labor to install (including time to clean leaves from gutters):

  • 6 Rolls of Gutter guard
  • Sheet metal screws
  • Labor 2.5 hours to do 120' of gutter

High estimate for materials and labor (including cleaning of gutter):

  • 10 Rolls of Gutter guard
  • Sheet metal screws
  • Labor 4 hours to do 200' of gutter

If you are a contractor or a handyman, how much would this job cost in your area?

Low Price: $250

Consensus Price: $295

High Price: $350

I have a one story house with 106 feet of gutter. Needs cleaning and Guard installment I have had an estimate from a Handyman Service for $206.00 material and labor. I was wondering if this was a fair price.

  1. Low end material would be $80. Taxes on income, .17%. Gas and 3 to 4 hours time. You would make a 40-50 profit. That does not sound like something any professional worker would want to do

What would a fair price be?
