The price of guttering services in Australia averages at $50/hr. If the job requires some serious and complex work, then expect the cost to climb as high as around $60/hr. For minor tasks, it can drop to as low as $40/hr.
Although many businesses provide an hourly rate, there are also those that quote by the metre. The typical rate that they give is approximately $28/m.
Factors that affect the price
Here are some of the things that determine the cost of a guttering job. Knowing these can help you prepare for the expenses.
Gutters come in different types — PVC, Zincalume, aluminium, and stainless steel are the most commonly used in the country. Of these, stainless steel is the priciest. PVC, on the other hand, is the most cost-effective.
Type of job
Of course, the price of simple gutter repairs varies greatly from the price of a complete gutter replacement or a new installation work. Always be specific with the type of job you need done so that businesses can give you more accurate estimates.
As mentioned before, some businesses charge a per-metre rate. This means that the longer the gutter is, the more expensive your job becomes. This can also be applied to hourly rates as longer gutters take more time to install.
If businesses need a scaffolding to reach your roof and extra materials to complete the job, then don’t be surprised if the amount they charge you is higher than the average.
