Let’s give your gutter decision-making process a professional makeover. When considering the optimal commercial gutters, it’s crucial to recognize that their size significantly impacts their performance. At The Guttermen Commercial, we proudly present three meticulously engineered box gutter sizes: the 6-inch, the 7-inch, and the 8-inch.

Now, let’s delve into the hydrodynamic details. Each size boasts an escalating water-holding capacity. However, tread carefully—opting for a size that’s too generous might lead to rainwater pooling within the system, potentially causing operational hiccups.

Why Box Gutters?

These sleek architectural marvels not only exude a polished, professional aesthetic but also outpace their residential counterparts. Picture this: upgrading from a 5-inch to a 6-inch gutter catapults your water-holding potential by a substantial 40%!

While commercial structures might scrape by with 5-inch box gutters, our seasoned recommendation is to set your sights on the 6-inch models. Why? Because commercial edifices tend to accumulate more precipitation than cozy residential abodes, necessitating a larger gutter system.

Each of these sizes is meticulously tailored to specific scenarios and types of commercial buildings. So, dear reader, keep turning the page to discover which size aligns seamlessly with your unique needs.

Certainly! Let’s dive into the gutter dimensions with a professional touch.

6-Inch Box Gutters

For those with metal or tile roofs, consider 6 inches as the minimum size requirement. Tiles can sit higher above the roof line than other materials, causing runoff to travel a greater distance. When this occurs, you’ll need a larger gutter system to capture the water effectively.

Another compelling reason for opting for 6-inch gutters is the compatibility with 3 x 4-inch downspouts—a step up from residential box gutter sizes. These robust downspouts can handle more debris, such as leaves or twigs, passing through them.

Debris-prone areas? We recommend considering these larger sizes. And if your building resides directly beneath trees, sizing up is a prudent move.

In this size range, we also offer seamless custom gutters—meaning we can tailor them precisely to your building. However, depending on your roof’s dimensions, you might need to go even larger with your box gutters.

In summary, 6-inch box gutters are ideal for commercial buildings that fall between the scale of a warehouse and an average home. We recommend them for:

  • Restaurant chains or establishments
  • Small stores
  • Apartment buildings
  • Average-sized office buildings
  • Churches

7-Inch Box Gutters

This size sits squarely in the middle of the box gutter spectrum, designed for larger commercial buildings that surpass the 6-inch capacity. If you’re uncertain whether your building will experience excessive runoff for the 6-inch gutters, sizing up is a prudent choice.

Steel-built structures, listen up! The 7-inch gutters are your go-to. Steel buildings often feature expansive roof panels that accelerate water flow. When this happens, the runoff launches off the building’s edge, necessitating wider gutters to catch it mid-flight.

In some scenarios, the 6-inch size may not provide enough clearance to install the downspout away from pedestrian pathways. When that’s the case, you’ll want to explore the 7-inch option.

So, whether you’re sizing up or aiming for precision, let’s ensure your gutters are up to the task!
