European Box Gutters

European Box Gutters — as the name suggests, they feature a more square, rectangular, or “boxy” look. They’re a particularly attractive sight and can seamlessly complement roof outlines, which is why they’re often the go-to choice for commercial or industrial buildings (flat roofs). However, homeowners are often in search of a more modern or concealed look to differentiate themselves from their neighbors with more common gutter profiles.

Today, you can get European box gutters in nearly all the same colors and material types) as other gutter profiles.

We produce and install European box gutter systems for residential homes and commercial structures in Murfreesboro, Middle Tennessee, and Greater Nashville.

What Makes A Box Gutter “European”?

The core difference between “box” gutters and a “European box” gutters is a different design that removes the entire top lip to create a true, square-box profile.

With European box gutters, we’re after a modern, concealed, and seamless look, similar to standard box gutters. The aesthetic advantage of both profiles is that they blend in rather than protrude out from the roofline like other styles.

From a functionality standpoint, box gutters have a larger aperture, meaning the larger style allows them to move water efficiently. They’re actually installed and built into the roof, a tremendous benefit to flat-roof commercial structures, modern homes, and historic homes.

Residential European Box Gutters

Since European box gutters are built into the roofline and fascia, we’re often at the mercy of the quality of the contractors who came before us. Gutters are one of the final additions. This places more importance on the quality of previous contractors.

If there are dips, bends, weathering, or bowing in your roofing, framing, and shingling, this may impact our ability to install your gutters.

Which Downspouts for European Box Gutter

Again, this is really a decision of the design of the gutter system and architecture of the home or commercial structure. Typically, you’ll the downspouts match the gutters, but each option has its merits in certain designs. The downspout metal and gutter metal also typically match.
