What is a scupper box?

There are many different types of drainage devices, which can be used to allow rainwater to pass through a wall and down a roof, such as scupper boxes. There are a number of different kinds of these boxes, and they can vary in size, shape, and color. Most of these boxes are made from metal and are either soldered or welded. They can be made from copper or galvanized steel and are usually installed flush with the roof membrane with a sealed faceplate.

The purpose of a scupper is not only to prevent water from entering a building, but also to serve as a decorative finish. Although most scuppers are constructed of copper, other materials are also acceptable. It is necessary, for example, to have a rectangular scupper that is at least four inches high in order to prevent water from spilling into the roof.

In addition to the metal scupper box, the sealant also deteriorates over time, which is vital for preventing roof leaks because it prevents water from backing up between them and the wall masonry. When water backs up, it can cause foundation problems or even flood the basement. Roof drains are another popular type of scupper system that directs water to a downspout or the ground.

In addition to being made from aluminum, the box is also available in copper, freedom gray, lead-coated copper, or stainless steel depending on its size and shape. Depending on its size and shape, it can be constructed out of a variety of materials.
