Commercial Gutter Installation & Repair
Gutters for Office Buildings, Hotels, Shopping Centers, Apartments, & More
Your business is your livelihood, so you want to do as much as possible to protect it. Emmons Roofing & Siding wants to help, and one way that we can is with commercial gutter installation and repair services. In many cases, the types of gutters that work for homes don’t work well enough for office buildings, apartment complexes, hotels, and shopping centers. Commercial properties are usually larger and require different styles of gutters because of legal regulations and roofing types. Instead, your business needs gutters that are specifically built to keep the roof and structural integrity of your building intact.
In general, commercial gutters are bigger so that they can safely and efficiently transport water away from your property. However, you don’t necessarily have to sacrifice aesthetics because commercial gutters are available in a range of shapes, styles, materials, and colors. Emmons is licensed and insured in New Jersey and Pennsylvania to help you choose and install the right gutters for your property. We can repair any commercial gutters as well. Our company has developed a reputation among local business owners for being a reliable and trustworthy commercial gutter repair and installation contractor.
Although the team at Emmons can repair any commercial gutter system, there comes a time when gutters are damaged or worn beyond repair. For instance, a tree branch could fall on your gutters during a severe storm, causing irreparable cracks or breaks in the material. On the other hand, simply being outside can wear down gutters over time, especially when extreme temperature changes are involved. In any case, a new commercial gutter installation could be the best solution to protect your property and its occupants. One of our technicians will assess your gutter system and note any damage to determine if you need to replace them. If you want to take this opportunity to change the style, material, or color of your gutters, we can provide assistance with choosing the right ones.
Commercial Gutter Repair
With 1 inch of rain falling on a roof that’s 12,000 square feet, over 12,500 gallons of water would need to be diverted away. Gutters and downspouts that are clogged or cracked can’t perform correctly. As a result, this amount of water can damage your roof and the structure of your building. For this reason, it’s crucial to have an Emmons technician inspect your gutters and downspouts for issues. Whether the problem is a crack, separated joint, or improper slope, we can determine the problem and perform any commercial gutter repair services that you need, including downspout repair.

We have technicians readily available to ensure that you don’t have to wait long before your damaged gutter system can be repaired. We’re one of the leading companies in the area that offers emergency gutter repair services. Our goal is to get your gutters and downspouts working properly again so that your roof and building structure don’t suffer damage.
Types of Commercial Gutters
With advancements in gutter technologies and the variety of building types, you’ll have a few choices to make when it comes to your commercial gutter installation. There are a several different gutter styles to choose from: K-style, U-shaped and box gutters. In addition to these standard types of commercial gutters, Emmons Roofing & Siding is experienced in creating and installing custom gutter systems.
5-inch and 6-inch K-style gutters are traditionally installed on residential properties but are still an option for some commercial buildings that have smaller roofs. They’re ideal for townhouses, condos, and apartment buildings. 7-inch and 8-inch K-style gutters are used on larger roofs, especially those with a steep pitch as they will have to catch and move water faster.
Commercial Box Gutters
The roofs on some commercial buildings are so large that they require wider gutters. Office buildings, hotels and shopping centers, for example, might need commercial box gutters to handle the rainwater that may fall on the roofs. With a wider mouth and extra-large downspouts, a box gutter system can handle the high rain capacity to avoid overflow.
Although an alternative to K-style gutters, U-shaped gutters still have the curb appeal that you want on an apartment, condo, or townhouse property. This more traditional architectural style is also great for other commercial buildings with small roofs. The main difference is that a U-shaped commercial gutter installation typically has different bracketing than K-style gutters have.

Common Commercial Gutter Materials
Along with there being multiple sizes and styles of commercial gutters, several materials are available. The most popular choice for a commercial gutter installation is aluminum because it has a low cost and numerous color options. Aluminum gutters can make your building look more appealing to customers while protecting your roof and property structure for 20 years or longer. In fact, they resist rust and warping from summer heat. Similarly, aluminum seamless gutters are popular but have the additional benefit of no leaks because there’s no seam.
Vinyl is another option for commercial gutter installation because of its durability and resistance to rust, dents, cracks, and splits. It’s a lightweight material and doesn’t require a lot of maintenance either. As one of the strongest materials for commercial gutters, galvanized steel has a long life expectancy and costs more compared to aluminum and vinyl. The downside is that it requires repainting about every 10 years. With the highest cost, copper requires little maintenance and rarely dents, sags, or needs to be replaced, which saves you money over the long term.
