Maintaining the gutters on your commercial facility is essential to preserve the well-being of your property and ensuring it stays damage-free for years to come. A poorly maintained gutter may leak, collapse, or otherwise pose a risk to your building and the surrounding area, be it from water damage or injury caused by gutter collapse.
When Do My Commercial Gutters Need Repair?
While there are many different scenarios that may require gutter repair – and regular maintenance is always advised – here are a few of the most common cases:
- Standing water or overflowing gutter caused by back pitch
- Damaged or missing components, such as elbows or gutter shields, caused by wear and tear
- Dented or broken gutters (usually from weather & wind causing trees or limbs to fall)
- Rust on exposed surfaces
Why Should I Seek Professional Gutter Repair?
There are a number of reasons we recommend seeking professional gutter maintenance & repair services for your commercial facility.
- Risk. While you may feel comfortable repairing the gutters around your home, commercial buildings tend to introduce a much greater degree of risk, given their varying size, structure, and surroundings. In most cases, handling gutter repair on a non-residential building can be significantly more dangerous than doing so at home.
- Liability. On a similar note, a business can encounter serious trouble if an employee or customer is injured in the process of a gutter repair or replacement project. You may not expect many accidents, but all it takes is one wrong step to cause anything from a minor headache to a disastrous mishap for your business. Call a professional!
- Experience. Because of the varying sizes, shapes, and styles of commercial buildings, commercial gutter repair can require quite a bit of know-how, especially as compared to residential repair. Additionally, the numerous regulations and codes that apply to commercial buildings means this work is best left to someone with extensive knowledge and experience working on them.
