What Exactly Is Commercial Gutter Replacement?

Gutters perform the crucial task of directing water away from your building and protecting your foundation, exterior walls, and roof from water damage. However, gutters can wear out over time, or they may become damaged by extreme weather or neglect. When that happens, it’s important to act swiftly. Delaying replacement could result in costly damage requiring repairs and affecting not just your building but potentially your business operations. Moreover, a well-functioning gutter system maintains the aesthetic appeal of your property, contributing to a positive first impression for your clients or customers.

Signs Your Commercial Property Needs Gutter Replacement

Recognizing the need for gutter replacement requires a keen eye for certain signs. Here are several indicators that it might be time to consider replacing your gutters:

Visible Damage

If you see visible cracks, splits, or holes in your gutters, it’s a clear sign they need replacing. While small cracks may be repaired, larger ones usually indicate that the system is deteriorating and needs a complete overhaul.

Sagging or Pulling Away

Gutters that sag or pull away from the building are not performing effectively and need replacement. They may not be able to handle the water load, causing overflow that can lead to additional damage to your property.

Persistent Leaks or Overflow

If your gutters consistently leak or overflow during rainfall, despite being cleaned and unclogged, they may be worn out or improperly installed.

Water Damage Marks or Mold

Look for signs of water damage or mold on your building’s exterior. This could mean that water is spilling over the sides of the gutter rather than being directed away.

Foundation Problems

If you notice water pooling around your building’s foundation or signs of water damage in your basement, this could indicate that your gutters are not effectively managing rainwater.

Gutter Age

Most gutters last between 20-30 years. If your gutters are older than this and you’re experiencing problems, it may be time for a replacement.

If you see any of these signs, it’s wise to consult with a professional like Standard Roofing & Restoration. Our team can conduct a thorough inspection and offer expert advice on whether repair or replacement is the best solution for your situation.

Our Commercial Gutter Replacement Process

The process for replacing gutters on a building typically involves several steps to ensure that the new gutters are correctly installed and effectively channel rainwater away from the structure. Here’s a general overview of our process:


The first step of our process is to assess the existing gutter system and determine the scope of the replacement project. This includes evaluating the condition of the gutters, measuring the length of the roof edges, and selecting the appropriate type and size of gutters for the building.

Material Selection

Next we work with you to determine the material for the new gutters based on factors such as durability, cost, and aesthetics. Common options include aluminum, vinyl, steel, and copper.

Removal of Old Gutters

Then we remove the old gutters from the building, taking care to properly dispose of them. This may involve detaching gutter sections from the roof edge and removing any debris or obstructions.

Preparation of Roof Edge

Next we prepare the roof edge for the installation of the new gutters by cleaning and inspecting it for any damage or issues that need to be addressed. This ensures a smooth and secure attachment of the new gutters.

Assembly and Replacement

The next steps include gutter cutting and assembly, attaching the new gutters to the roof edge, installing downspouts, and sealing and caulking.


Once the replacement is complete, we test the new gutter system by running water through it and checking for proper drainage and alignment.
