Gutter Tech Enterprise was back in Utica, NY to install 6 inch commercial seamless aluminum gutters on the new Nimey’s Auto Center. We went with our larger commercial 6 inch seamless aluminum gutters due to the size of the building and to make sure the gutters would handle the volume of water.
We placed the hidden gutter hangers every 10 inches and utilized a #12 screw to make sure the gutters would be robust enough to handle the ice and snow. As you can see by the pictures we took after they were installed, the gutters have no problem withstanding the ice and snow build up. We decided to go with 4 x 5 aluminum downspouts to make sure to drain the seamless gutters even in the heaviest downpour.
It is always a good idea to use snow guards on metal roofs. Snow guards are metal or poly guards that are attached to the roof and prevent the snow from sliding off the roof system. Snow will build up on metal roofs and once it becomes warm the snow can slide off and potentially cause damage to your gutters or create a hazard for anything below.
Furthermore, we always recommend a yearly inspection of any gutter system to make sure they are clean and flowing freely.
As always our gutter installation came out great and will provide years of service.
