Square Gutters?


I was looking at a window job the other day and the client was asking if I knew where to get square gutters with a square detail about halfway up?

His house was built in 1955 as part of the modern architecture movement, and he wants to maintain that aesthetic. Every gutter company he has contacted will only provide K-style.

I'm not clear at this point what the heck style he is referring to, but I should be able to get pictures soon. Apparently they are somewhat common in Australia.

Thanks

I have seen some square wooden gutters, but they go back a lot further than the 1950's.

That might work for him. He is just artsy enough that the fillet angle at the bottom might make it a no go, but I'll see.

Where do you go to get that?

Re: Square Gutters?


Called a box gutter. Comes in different sizes but usually used for commercial so pretty large. My supplier has a machine and makes for me but you might be able to order and have trucked in from someone close to you but would only be 20' sections.

Hard to believe nobody there has a machine for box gutters though

I've never seen a square gutter around here like you're describing

My guess is that any commercial roofer/gutter company isn't taking calls from homeowners.

Now that I can almost speak the language, I could hit up the roofing supply house and see if they can point me in the right direction.

Probably should have thought of that first. Hopefully these are available in a 4" or 5" range?

Have only seen them in 7"&8". They would look silly on a residence.

Re: Square Gutters?


They exist but locating them is the problem. I do mostly modern and mid century stuff so it's been on my radar for a long time. I know we used to use ten foot "box gutters" and do it that way. I finally found a los angeles company that had enough volume to get the heads to run it seamless. Either straight square profile or with the front canted out 10 degrees. I put the canted one on my house. Look for box gutters. I get what the guy is saying the K style look great on lots of houses but not on clean lined modern houses. If I knew how to post pictures I would post a couple

To post pictures just go to advanced. click on the paperclip, then browse for your photo(s). The only trick is the files have a maximum of 200kb. If they're bigger than that open with paint and use resize to make them smaller, really easy to do. Once they're less than 200kb upload them and they'll show right up (hopefully).

I had looked at ABC's website, and by extension Norandex, but didn't see anything other than K-style and round.

I'll stop in and chat with them though.

Then click on gutters.

That's odd. When you say ABC, I think of these guys, https://www.abcsupply.com/ who are a big player in the roofing game here.

The link you provided, is for a different ABC it seems. But they have a store in Cheyenne, and I'll be up there next week and give em a look.

Thanks

Look at MBCI's online commercial catalog.
They have a couple different square box gutters.
