Copper and stainless steel gutters run the highest in terms of costs. These high-end materials are strong and will not rust or rot. They can cost up to $20 per linear foot. A faux-copper gutter made of aluminum called "Musket Brown" sells for $9 per linear foot. Aluminum gutters are by far the most popular because they do not rust are lightweight and cost anywhere from $4-$8 per linear foot. However these gutters are more easily damaged by ladders and branches which may cost more money in repairs over several years.
