Rain gutters are essential for any commercial building. Commercial buildings are usually much larger than residential buildings and the rainfall that falls on the roof would create a deluge if there wasn’t an adequate drainage system in place that could handle the amount of rain that falls during a rainstorm.

That’s what’s sitting in your gutters right now. If left alone, besides being a smelly mess, it can cause your gutters to clog and overflow, and when gutters can’t do their job properly, that is, move water away from your home, it leads to a multitude of expensive problems such as mold, foundation cracks, leaky doors and windows, flooded basements, and more.
Spring is just around the corner and you know what that means. Spring cleaning! If you’re a believer in the virtues of spring cleaning, it’s that time when you scrub, mop, and shine your house from top to bottom, inside and out. An important part of your home’s spring cleaning should be the cleaning of your gutters to remove any debris that may have built up over the long winter months. Overlooking this bit of your cleaning can lead to damage not only to your roof and gutters but to your windows, doors, siding, and foundation as well.
Leaf protection may not be something that most people think about during the long months of winter but spring will be here before you know it. And spring is the perfect time to have your gutters cleaned and all of the debris that built up in your gutters during the late fall and winter months removed so your gutters do their job when spring showers arrive.
While it’s not clear when people began using copper to make gutters but copper gutters are a popular choice for homeowners and businesses who want to bring a little history to their curb appeal. The bright copper color enhances the architectural features of any building and eventually will develop a beautiful green patina that will make your building stunning. It’s even possible to treat and seal the copper so the gutters keep their copper color. Copper gutters give structures an authentic, timeless feel on older homes and buildings but can also give newer properties a distinguished appeal.
Just like your gutters for your home, commercial gutters are designed to divert all of the water that falls on the roof elsewhere where it can’t cause damage to the building like cracks in the foundation that could cause flooding, damage to the siding, leaky windows and doors, and landscape or asphalt damage. Whether you have a home or a commercial property, these things are expensive to repair.
