When it comes to commercial properties, owners tend to direct their maintenance efforts onto the roofing rather than other smaller elements of the building. While roofing is indeed important, other parts such as guttering should not be overlooked. Having the wrong type of commercial gutter or a poorly installed gutter system can cause significant damage and lead to high repair and maintenance costs.
Commercial guttering installation process
First of all, it’s important to understand that there is a difference between commercial and domestic gutters. Commercial gutters need to be able to withstand more water and weight than domestic gutters due to the larger roofing systems typically associated with commercial premises. Therefore, commercial gutters must have a larger size than domestic gutters.
Commercial gutter installation must be carried out in a precise way. Gutters that are slightly misplaced may lead to water dripping between the gutter and the edge of the roof, or flowing straight into the foundation of the building. This can cause considerable damage to a building, including dampness and leaks.
Commercial gutters must also be installed with added support to hold the extra water and gutter weight. The combined weight must be taken into consideration to install the correct amount of support and anchoring. It is also important that the system is installed in a downwards way that allows for optimum flow.
Commercial guttering maintenance
Commercial guttering maintenance is just as important as getting the correct installation. An inspection should occur yearly to assess any potential problems such as blockages, loose connections, breakages, rust, gutter movement, and leaks. This will ensure that your commercial guttering lasts over the years and keeps working effectively even in times of harsh weather conditions.
Once the inspection is carried out, any problems uncovered will be fixed and a thorough clean will take place. As the larger size of commercial guttering allows for more debris and blockages, regular cleaning will ensure that any build-up is removed. This will allow for improved durability and increases the effectiveness of your commercial guttering.
