COMMERCIAL RAIN GUTTERS
7″ & 8″ K-STYLE SEAMLESS GUTTERS

When you think about gutters, you probably think about the gutters on your home.  While these are very important, of course, gutters on commercial buildings are just as vital.  Commercial gutters have one primary purpose, to capture and divert water away from the building so it does not collect around the foundation and cause water damage.  However, gutters also protect your landscaping and other important equipment as well.

Because commercial buildings are often larger than residential ones, they usually need larger gutters. Commercial gutters differ from residential gutters.  The gutter material may have similarities, but the style, sizes and durability are usually different.  Commercial buildings usually require different building code standards as regulated by the county.

The 8” K-Style rain gutter provides an outstanding ability to move large quantities of water from the roof with a clean professional seamless look.

GUTTER SIZE

Gutter comes in several sizes, 5”, 6”, 7’ and 8” widths.  The 5” and 6” sizes are usually used in residential installations.  Because commercial buildings are normally larger, with a bigger roof area, the additional water run-off requires a larger 7” or 8” size gutter.  Smaller commercial buildings may be able to use a smaller gutter size; however the water run-off volume needs to be considered as well as building codes.  The size of the downspout is also a factor to consider.  Smaller gutters usually use 2”X3” and 3” X 4” downspouts; with the larger 8” gutter we use 4”X5” downspouts.

MAINTENANCE

Regular maintenance of commercial rain gutters is also essential to keep the water collection system working efferently.  Over time – particularly if your established is surrounded by trees –  leaves, debris and twigs will start to build up and clog your commercial rain gutters, obstructing the channels where water runs and possibly causing serious harm to your property.  To prevent the situation, hire a reputable company that can clean your commercial rain gutters periodically and also check for any damage that might need repair.
