A box gutter is given its name as it is usually “boxed” into the middle or edge of the roof. The gutter collects the water and disposes of it through the drainpipe. Box guttering is generally concealed as they are hidden by outside walls that are higher than the edge of the roof tiles or sheeting – that is, you can’t see them when you look at the home, so they are great if you don’t like the look of gutters for whatever reason.
Box gutters should have a minimum fall of 1 : 200
Box guttering need to be made from high quality materials – better than the roof itself where possible, so Zincalume or Colorbond are ideal.
Different colour choices are available but because it is a concealed gutter for the most part, the choice of colour may not be important to you.

The roof on your property is a complicated system and relies on the integrity of each of its parts. Every component of the roof must be durable and have the correct measurements. They should also be installed according to guidelines set by the law, the needs of your property and the type of climate in your area. Even a single faulty, loose or damaged small crew can already compromise the strength and performance of your entire roof. Thus, the right choice of materials, expert installation and regular maintenance are all important. One of the most important but often neglected parts of the roof is the box gutter. Named for its shape, this type of gutter is preferred by many homeowners, builders and architects because of the many benefits the gutter offers both in form and function. Aesthetically speaking, the sleek and unobtrusive shape of a box gutter allows you to create a neater, more cohesive look for the property. Performance-wise, the square design offers more flexibility for your drainage system. It’s also able to carry, direct and drain high volumes of water, allowing it to provide more protection for the building. But not all box gutters are equal. To make sure your gutter will be able to guard your property effectively against water damage, consider the following tips: Opt only for high-quality materials. Your gutter needs to be built with strong, highly durable materials for it to withstand harsh climate conditions. In fact, your gutter should be even stronger than your roof itself. Choose gutters from reputable manufacturers such as Lysaght and models made from manufactured from Colorbond® and Zincalume® steel for best results. Get expert help.
