Connecticut Gutter & Exteriors installs gutter systems on homes throughout the state of Connecticut. We use several types of gutters, depending on the design of a house, the homeowner’s preferences, and the budget. While not the most popular choice, box gutters are used on many Connecticut homes.
As their name indicates, box gutters have a flat, square-shaped base. This gives them a box-like cross section. They also were given this name because of the fact that they are boxed on all sides and have high edges all around. These high edges are usually not visible from the outside of a house, creating a concealed effect.
Box gutters are also sometimes referred to as concealed gutters. They are fitted discreetly beneath a house’s fascia boards and give the roofline a sleek, modern appearance.
Box gutters are an ideal choice for certain types of houses. They are often used on buildings where the roof abuts walls or where there is an unusual roof form, such as an older style terrace.
Since box gutters are fitted directly to the framework of a house, they will not warp or bend if the house settles. This problem is especially common with new houses. Because box gutters are protected from the effects of a house settling, water can drain properly.
Connecticut Gutter & Exteriors produces custom-made box gutters using aluminum, zinc, copper, or lead-coated copper. If you are interested in having box gutters installed on your home, contact us today to schedule an inspection and to get an estimate.
