Many Pittsburgh neighborhoods are historic and have architecturally time-specific homes, and when it comes to updating and maintaining such properties, special considerations must be made. Many owners of these historic homes do not want to impact the aesthetic of the exterior by installing modern gutters, so rebuilding or relining the existing box gutters is the preferred option.

Box Gutters vs. Regular Gutters
If you’ve never heard of box gutters, you’re not alone. After the early 1900s, they were no longer typically installed, but can still be found on older homes. Modern gutters are fabricated from metal or PVC, but box gutters are made from wood and then covered by a thin metal sheet which is preferably copper. These gutters were built right into the roof overhang, while today’s gutters are installed on the fascia board of the overhang.
When comparing box gutters vs. regular gutters, the main benefit to box gutters is the way they blend seamlessly with a home’s architecture. This type of look is not possible with modern gutters and is why owners of older homes are willing to pay more to have box gutters rebuilt or relined to maintain the original and historically accurate architecture.
Since this isn’t a typical job, it’s important to choose contractors who have proven experience with this type of installation—and the Resnick Roofing team does!
