Box gutters are a popular choice for historical homes, commercial buildings, and multifamily housing. Unlike the more common hanging gutters, box gutters are built into the bottom of a building’s roof line or the bottom of the roof overhang. This allows box gutters to seamlessly blend into a home’s design.
Box gutters provide protection in trickier places and are concealed as part of the roof. Property owners who don’t want to alter the appearance of their roof often install box gutters because they are nearly indiscernible from the rest of the roof, as opposed to K-style gutters, which have a “hanging” appearance.
An advantage of box gutters is a wider gutter opening that allows for easier cleaning and more capacity. Further, the wide bottom of box gutters allows you to install larger downspouts with greater capacity and flow.
The modern look of box gutters suits contemporary homes and commercial buildings and blends in better with the design and architecture. The box-style gutter can also be a more harmonious fit for nontraditional home designs.

With flat roofs, larger complex roofs, parapet walls, and other architectural building features, rainwater does not always drain out directly to the external perimeter of the roof. In these instances, box gutters are the only viable option.
Box rain gutters are also the ideal choice for small spaces between two surfaces of equal height or areas where one surface sits slightly above the other – their shape and volume capacity allow them to fit seamlessly just about anywhere.
If your roof does not have a traditional sloped design, you may need to consider installing a box gutter system. If you are interested in box gutters, request a quote from GlennStone Roofing and Gutters today.
