Commercial Gutters

Commercial

Commercial gutters are different from residential gutters in many ways, including styles, sizes, and durability requirements. Commercial properties may also be subject to various legal or building code requirements depending on city or county regulations.

But similar to residences, commercial properties need properly functioning rain gutter systems.

Let’s look at some options!

How Can Chop-n-Drop Gutters Help?

Lovett Gutters is one of the few guttering companies in Middle Tennessee with the machines to make gutters on-site. Many of our Commercial and Contractor partners enlist us to produce gutters on-site for their teams to install.

Commercial Gutter FAQ

Box gutters are most commonly used on commercial properties because they typically have larger roof areas to accommodate larger volumes of water. However, depending on the application and building architecture, we will occasionally use large K-Style or Half-Round gutters when appropriate.

The highest durability comes from 24-gauge galvanized steel or heavy aluminum. Steel is most common. Aluminum gutters come in various gauges and thicknesses depending on the application. Both options need to be installed by a professional because properly installed commercial gutters will protect your system from pulling away from the building after repeated heavy use.

The primary difference is that steel is structurally a stronger material. Generally speaking, steel expands less per 100-degree temperature. The expansion and contraction of metals in commercial guttering is an important factor in the strength and longevity of the system. All metals have a thermal expansion, including heavy aluminum, stainless steel, copper – they will all expand to some degree between the heat of summer and cold of winter.

Many installers avoid working with steel because it’s more difficult to cut and form, but it’s also heavier and harder to carry up a ladder. Also, older machines may only accommodate more malleable metals. We work with the latest machines and will happily work with steel. We often recommend it for certain commercial projects.

If you’re not authorized to access or have proper safety equipment, reach out to your landlord or your contractor. Commercial gutters are often larger gutters, accommodate a higher volume of rainwater, and support a much larger roof area. This means they can catch more leaves, twigs, or debris. Cleaning is important in all gutter systems. Unfortunately, it’s commonly overlooked. As a result, clogged drains or water buildup can impact one or multiple levels of tenants under the roof.

Yes, gutter and leaf guards can be installed to reduce buildup and maintenance problems.

First, you should have a maintenance plan, even if it’s only once per year. Second, you can work with a local landscaper to prune or remove surrounding trees to reduce natural roof debris. Third, you can consider using gutter and leaf guards for preventative maintenance.

Commercial Gutter Styles

Commercial Box Gutters: the 5″ and 6″ widths are more common on commercial properties. This shape allows for more control over higher rainwater volumes.

Commercial K-style Gutters: the 7″ and 8″ sizes are common in commercial projects. The 9″ size is all commercial. Only serious projects with the large watershed and large roof square footages use the 9″ size. K-Style commercial gutters are also used when the architecture calls for a more “crown molding” look.

Commercial Half-Round Gutters: if half-round gutters are used in commercial projects, it’s most likely the larger 6″, 7″, 8″, or 9″ sizes, depending on the application.

Commercial Gutter Materials

More heavy-duty materials are used in commercial projects to accommodate higher water volume, such as 24-Gauge Galvanized Steel and Heavy Aluminum.

Compared to residential homes, commercial properties occupy significantly more roof square footage, meaning we need to control much more water.

On average, they both have a life span of 20 years while a more high-end option can last up to 50 years.

Commercial Downspouts

There are key similarities and differences between residential and commercial downspouts. They are similar because their core purpose is to drain water from within the gutters and route it safely to the ground.

There are key similarities and differences between residential and commercial downspouts. They are similar because their core purpose is to drain water from within the gutters and route it safely to the ground.

While residential gutters will typically route water away from the home and into the landscape, commercial properties don’t always have that luxury. Therefore, rainwater can route into pumping systems, buried downspouts, or underground drains. Depending on local regulations, commercial downspouts may also route rainwater into the sanitary sewer or storm drain system. Most of this involves pre-construction planning.

While we typically balance aesthetics and functionality goals in residential guttering, commercial downspouts (and their gutters) lean more towards the functionality of controlling high-volume rainwater. Yes, we build downspouts to match appropriately with the gutters, but larger or oversized systems are chosen for commercial properties.

Commercial Gutter
Cleaning & Maintenance

Both residential and commercial gutters/downspouts will need a seasonal cleaning, especially as fall comes around. It doesn’t matter which profile, size, or material gutter your property has, they can clog in the right environment with leaves, sticks, branches, or other natural debris.

Both residential and commercial gutters/downspouts will need a seasonal cleaning, especially as fall comes around. It doesn’t matter which profile, size, or material gutter your property has, they can clog in the right environment with leaves, sticks, branches, or other natural debris.

While you could use more conventional or DIY methods for residential gutters, commercial systems are much larger. Gutters may span several thousand feet, and downspouts may be several stories high. Or even worse, underground downspouts and drains may clog as well.

We commonly add leaf guards to commercial gutter systems to help protect your building and all parts that help keep rainwater moving quickly.

I called David out to replace the gutters on the front of our house after the builder couldn't seem to get it right. He responded to every message sent and set a time/date to come out. He was on time and when he arrived, noticed that he may actually be able to fix the gutters instead of replacing them. After finishing the work in the front he also took the time to adjust the side and the back to ensure they were draining correctly. We could not have asked for a better professional to come out. When other contractors are trying to upsell for things not really needed, it was so nice to find a HONEST business owner who really cares about his customers. He has our business from now on!
