Anybody knowledgeable on gutter install cost?

My warehouse is 100 feet long, 14 feet high. I want to install a gutter on one side of the building. I'm not clear on gutter sizes. But in guessing a 5" or a 6" gutter. I'm guessing it will be two pieces. Downspout each end.
It's an all steel building.
Anybody know about what I should pay for this? I have a recommended guy coming out tomorrow, but I have no experience in the cost of this.

I had a 56' x 32 ' 3 sided shed built a few years ago. Gutter was included in total price so I can't help with price.
But the contractor subbed out the gutter. The gutter guys brought a gutter machine on site and made the continuous gutter the full length of the shed.
Contractor only put in one downspout. That was not enough. Heavy rains would overflow the gutter and make a mess. I had him back out to add a 2nd downspout to both the front and rear of the shed. That did trick. I have not noticed any more overflows.
This is standard size gutter, 5" I believe. With the length of your building if bigger is available it would be a good choice with 100' of roof space dumping on just two downspouts.

Thanks.
I was wondering if 2 would be enough.
I'll be asking that question!

Got 6" gutter, straps every 12 inches. 4x6 downspouts. 1950 for one side. Had him do both sides. 200 feet of it. 100 ft long piece on each side.
Today. Started hanging the white metal walls inside. Just me and the wife. First day was a long day figuring out how to handle these sheets, the tools to cut and install. Etc. I don't think we did bad for two retired old farts with no experience.

I'm tearing the gutters off my house that keep leaking at the joints and rotting my eves, not to mention I'm on a ladder all winter cleaning them out. I'm going with rain guards.

Oh shit. Maybe that's why my gutters aren't working. Being on the inside, I just collect drops from humidity. I wasted my time and money.

Some space for my junk. Hoping to rent out space for heated winter storage for boats, Cars, whatever. Would be nice to get long term winter and summer.
