One source I found, quoted a price of $4-5.00 per lineal foot for aluminum, installed, and $20.00 per lineal foot for copper. Of course that will vary depending on labor rates around the country, and probably supply costs too. That should give you an idea of the difference in price though.

Whatever you do, don't mix the two on the same roof. The copper will dissolve the aluminum.
