We're asking readers to share how much they spent on a given item, project, or upgrade in the home. We hope this information proves helpful to anyone needing to get a basic sense of how much something costs, and how much you can expect to pay to hire someone.

Today's Question:
How much does it cost to replace or install rain gutters and downspouts?

When you respond, tell us if you are installing a new system, or replacing old gutters and downspouts. Also, let us know the type of actual gutters (aluminum? copper?), the type of gutter guards (mesh? covers?), how many stories, and the approximate linear feet your home needed. Since costs vary, your region of the country is always helpful too!
