American Roofing Technologies takes pride in providing high-quality box gutter and box spouting installations for homes and businesses. Box gutters are internal drainage systems located inside the eaves or fascia of a building. They are designed with a pitch to ensure proper water drainage, and should be installed with a slope no less than 1:100. Our box gutter systems are lined with a high temperature underlayment and rosin paper, then custom-bent metal or copper is used to line the gutter. We use a hidden fastener system with drip edge installed along the edges of the gutter for a clean and polished appearance.
Our box gutters are connected to the framing of your home or business, making them extremely durable and able to withstand heavy snow loads and rainwater. We always recommend using metal or copper for lining box gutters, as other materials such as rolled roofing can fail due to seams and material quality. The seams and drains of our box gutter systems are soldered or hemmed for added strength and durability. Our metal gutters are painted with oil-based or marine paint to enhance their appeal and provide a protective coating.
When replacing box gutters, we remove the old gutters and roofing materials, inspecting the woodwork for any loose or rotted wood. Neglected box gutters can cause significant damage to your property, so it's essential to address any leaks or signs of water intrusion immediately. Our box gutter installations can be expensive, as they require a specialty roofer that does custom gutters. However, our box gutters can last over 50 years, making them a worthwhile investment.
One of the biggest issues with box gutters is clogging, so we always recommend installing a screen in your downspouts and removing any overhead trees that may contribute to blockages. With over a century of combined roofing experience, American Roofing Technologies is dedicated to providing our customers with high-quality box gutter and box spouting installations and repairs.
