COMMERCIAL GUTTER CONSIDERATIONS
As you might think, commercial gutters need to be able to shed larger volumes of rainwater runoff than typical residential gutters. Therefore the most common size for commercial gutters is six inches rather than the typical five-inch size found in residential gutter installations. Six-inch gutters are also more suited to commercial applications since commercial roof areas are almost always considerably larger than their residential counterparts.
Commercial gutters are available in a variety of styles and materials, including standard K-style gutters and box gutters. Box gutters are more often found in commercial rain gutter systems since they are able to handle more rainwater. While box gutters are more prone to clogging than K-style gutters, commercial properties typically have much fewer trees than residential properties, and therefore clogging is less of a concern. For situations where gutter and eavestrough clogging is a concern in a commercial building project, gutter guards are an excellent solution at minimal additional cost to the project.
