During the cold months in regions with heavy snow fall, it’s important that commercial buildings are properly protected from possible damage caused by heavy loads of snow. As most traditional businesses have flat roofs, piles of snow can quickly form on top of these buildings, which can become dangerous if the weight becomes too much.
The problem can be easily fixed with the installation of high-quality scuppers and gutters along the commercial building’s roof. Chicago Metal Supply offers a variety of solutions designed to meet any preference. This guide details their offerings and what each style excels at.
Our gutters and scuppers are made out of high-quality steel, allowing them to withstand even the harshest of winter conditions. Not only do they do a great job of resisting rust, but they’re also exceedingly strong, allowing them to accommodate large volumes of snow and water.
The aesthetic of steel is attractive as well, and it can add a unique look to your property. Available in a number of colors and styles, our metal gutters and scuppers are sure to match your commercial property.
Our gutters are available in a number of different types and styles. Some of our most popular options include the following:
If your roof is rounded, you would be best served by installing radius gutters. These curved gutters sit flush against rounded roofs, allowing them to catch and filter water without any loss or disturbance.
Box gutters are squared off at the bottom, providing tremendous space for water to pass through. In terms of aesthetics, they can provide your property with a sense of strength and solidity.
Half round gutters are rounded on their bottoms. This gives them a sleeker and smoother appearance. It also makes them easy to clean, helping to ensure that they’re cleared in time for the winter season. We carry copper and galvanized half round gutters, and we can special order Kynar coated steel.
K-style gutters look similar to box gutters, but they’re a little more dynamic in terms of their overall aesthetic. They’ll add a great deal of texture to any commercial property where they’re installed. Providing ample drainage space, they’ll have no problem draining the melted snow off your roof. We carry copper and galvanized k-style gutters, and we can special order Kynar coated steel.
If you have a flat roof on your property, it’s best to install scupper boxes as a means of transferring melted snow from your roof to your gutter system. Fortunately, we have a variety of high-end scupper boxes for you to choose from.
Not only do we supply a number of stock scupper boxes, but we also customize them as needed. Offering a wide range of color options, we’re sure to have something that fits your style. Give us a call to discuss your vision!
Snow guards and snow retention systems are designed to prevent heavy snowfall from piling up on your roof and becoming dangerous. When installed correctly, they allow snow and ice to melt and slide off a roof in small amounts. In doing so, they eliminate the risk of snow falling off a roof all at once — similar to an avalanche — which could potentially cause injury and/or property damage. Our snow guards and snow retention systems are durable, easy to install and come with a lifetime guarantee.
If you’re interested in purchasing high-end commercial gutters and scuppers, there’s no need to look any further. We here at Chicago Metal Supply are the company to call.
We offer a wide variety of types and styles — from radius gutters to K-style gutters, to half round gutters, and more. Regardless of the nature of your roof, we have a gutter and/or a scupper box that can help you effectively manage heavy snow and ice.
