When choosing commercial rain gutters, Alpine Gutters and Downspouts in Denver can help out enormously. We are the specialists when it comes to protecting your business with commercial rain gutters that will fully protect your commercial property from the elements and keep you in compliance with current laws and codes.
Gutters come in various sizes, styles, and materials. Here are some of the options to ponder when choosing commercial rain gutters:
The nice thing about aluminum is it can be painted to match your structure, whatever color you choose. They are high-quality aluminum usually, and therefore won’t rust. This commercial gutter can prevent dangerous leaks that often come from sectional gutters, and they use screws instead of long nails, which gives them a more permanent fit, and they fit easily in budgets.
Very appealing to look at, copper gutters are often used when restoring historic homes, creating that old-fashioned look. If your business is located in a repurposed residential space, you can create a classic look by adding copper gutters, but material costs are higher than conventional gutters. As far as durability, you will get many years out of this type of gutter.
Galvanized Steel Gutters
Seamless galvanized steel gutters are great for a large roof, such as a commercial building, because they can handle an immense amount of water flow. They do tend to rust easily, which can lead to leaks. However, an ongoing gutter maintenance program and tending to rust early with repairs will keep these gutters in great shape.
Gutter Styles to Choose From
K Style Gutters
Square or angular commercial gutters are popular but will require some maintenance and cleaning from time to time.
Half Round Gutters
These drain water a lot better and are recommended for commercial buildings.
Choosing seamless or seamed gutters is a choice, but for a commercial property, it will almost always be the seamless version. Seamless gutters and downspouts will rarely leak because they do not have a seam or weak area of construction. Virtually all professional installers for commercial properties can custom make them fit the dimensions of your building.
Downspouts vs. Rain Chain
Downspouts do a great job of taking a significant amount of water from the roof and directing it away from your landscaping, foundation, and other areas of the property to where you want it to go. However, they can make the building or home look unattractive. If you are going for a unique look, the Rain Chain, which comes in many colors, materials and can even be ornamental, can give an appealing look to any structure. However, it will not take large amounts of water pouring down it, and may not be suitable for all spaces.
