Gutter repair cost

Rainwater that’s not being channeled in the right way by your guttering, can cause severe (and costly) damage to your property.

Keeping your gutters in good repair is more important than you might think.

A gutter that’s not doing its job properly can:

  • Allow water to seep into the roof, causing damp in your internal rooms.
  • Allow water to stain the brickwork or render of your house.
  • Cause rainwater streams to cut through your garden, ruining vegetation and lawns.
  • Stream down the outside wall, pound the foundation line, and ultimately threaten the structural integrity of your home.

If your gutter is damaged, leaking, or poorly fitted, act now to get your gutters repaired. This will help to avoid any unnecessary costly damage to your property further down the line.

How much does it cost to repair a gutter leak?

A gutter leak could be due to many different causes including damage, poorly fitted guttering, or a leaking bracket or joint.

A gutter repair specialist can visit your property to assess the cause of the leak and recommend the necessary repairs.

On average, you can expect to pay around £120 – £180 to have a single gutter length repaired on a medium semi-detached house. If the leak is at one of the gutter joints, a fix will cost approximately £60 – £90. These prices reflect the cost of labour and materials.

Factors affecting the average cost of gutter repair

The average cost of gutter repair depends on a few factors:

  • The type of guttering: uPVC, cast iron, or aluminium.
  • The amount of guttering that needs repair.
  • The type of repair: gutters, downpipes, joints or brackets.
  • The scale of the job, i.e. the size of the property.
  • Ease of access to the guttering. E.g. Is scaffolding needed?
  • Where you live – expect to pay more in London.
