What You Need To Know
Gutters are used to solve and prevent a variety of different water problems. Box gutters are one of the more popular choices for commercial buildings due to their capacity and durability. Box gutters have a square-shaped look, which is where their name stemmed from. These gutters are embedded in the roof and run around the roof’s perimeter.
Due to their strength and size, they can carry a large amount of water, which makes them efficient for commercial buildings. The typical size of a box gutter is around 6-7 inches and 75mm deep, allowing for a large amount of water to work its way through. Whether it’s a retail center, office building, warehouse, or another commercial business, the installation and maintenance of box gutters require a professional touch. Our SPG Roofing & Exteriors team can provide your business or property with efficient inspection, installation, and repair services.
Box gutters are typically made from copper and stainless steel, with an occasional wooden frame covered with a metal layer. There are different finishes available to fit the look of your property, but the gutters usually need a new paint job about every 10 years to keep them looking fresh. Whether you’re a business owner or a property management group, box gutters can be an attractive sight on the building. They complement the architecture of most buildings, essentially blending into the look of the building.
Box gutters drain water from the roof, particularly useful in Indiana. Whether it’s a rainstorm or the melting of snow after a major snowstorm, the box gutters relieve the roof of possible corrosion and clogging. Their durability aids them in defending against strong winds and rain.
The sturdiness and material used for box gutters make them more impervious to sun exposure damage and corrosion, as the sun can be brutal in the long, hot summers of Indiana. While the cost of box gutters may seem like an undertaking for a homeowner, business owners and property management groups can find the most beneficial.
Common Issues with Gutters
If you notice your gutters aren’t working properly, you can contact us immediately to get someone working on the issue to avoid any further damage. Several common issues may occur with your gutters that you should keep an eye out for. If you are unsure, you can schedule an inspection with us to take a look to see if there are issues you may be missing.
Box gutters demand unique maintenance, especially since the time and effort it takes to clean and maintain them can be extensive. One of the most common issues with gutters is leaking. Leaks can occur anywhere along the gutter, and water can sometimes spill over from the box gutter. If this occurs, it can indicate a clog in the drain line or that the amount of rain was too great, and it overwhelmed the gutter.
One of the more serious issues is water running behind the gutter. If this occurs, water can damage trims or enter the building and damage the ceiling or interior of the wall. This typically happens when the box gutter is improperly designed or installed. The best way to avoid this is by trusting the SPG Roofing & Exteriors team with your installation and repair needs.
