Your gutters are an important part of home maintenance and prevent damage to your house or building. Having improperly installed gutters could bring water back inside which can cause rot damage to exterior doors and windows. Water can also harm landscaping and foundations, all leading to expensive repair work.

In order to prevent costly repairs they need to be maintained to keep free of clogs, sags, and holes. Clogged guttersare the most common problem. An inspection can quickly tell you if repair is necessary or if a simple cleaning will take care of it.

When it comes to gutters, commercial and residential systems are not the same. The materials do have similarities, but sizes, styles and durability requirements differ.With commercial gutters, a U shape that allows more water volume might be necessary. That is why box gutters are frequently used in commercial installations. The U shaped gutter gives additional protection for larger buildings with higher water run-off. Installing gutter guards will help prevent debris from collecting in these larger sized gutters. Typically, commercial buildings also have different legal or building code requirements. The requirements depend on city and county regulations and the staff at Empire Roofing and Restoration are well versed in these prerequisites.
