Image of covered gutters

Installing gutter covers protects the system from clogs; it also makes it more maintenance-free, essentially extending its life span and utility. As with any home investment, several factors affect the cost of your new covers.

In this post, Carolina Gutter Helmet and More shares what these factors are and how they affect the cost of a new gutter cover.

Home Size

The size of your property will affect the cost of your new gutter cover, specifically how many floors you have, your home’s number of corners and the size and dimensions of the roofing system itself. The steepness of your roof also plays a key role in how it sheds rainwater into the gutters.

Gutter Condition

Keep in mind that the condition of your gutters will also influence the cost of your new covers. Damage such as warping and corrosion as well as gutter blockage all need to be addressed before you install the covers. The same goes for the condition of the roof; fascia boards and damage to the roof edge must be repaired or replaced as they will affect the performance of your new gutters.


How accessible your roof also contributes to the cost of your gutter covers, for better or for worse. In cases where the gutters are positioned in such a way that it can’t normally be accessed with just a ladder, special equipment may be necessary. This might increase the cost of your project, but it’s worth it at the end instead of settling for a slapdash job.
