There are two main styles of gutters: k-style and half-round gutters. These two styles are the most popular due to their ability to efficiently drain water. While they are both solid choices for any residential or commercial building, there are some notable differences that you should be aware of before purchasing either of these two styles.
Most homes in the US use K-style gutters. One of the main reasons this is so is because it complements most architectural styles. K-style gutters lay flat on one side. This shape enables them to easily be secured onto the home. This style of rain gutter can be found in all different shapes and sizes. K gutters can either be bought at a full length, or pre-cut to be assembled at a later time. These gutters require assembling with the help of sealants and connectors. It’s suggested that the installation of these gutters be carried out by a professional in order to ensure that it’s done correctly. K gutters can be found in both seam and seamless styles. Seamless aren’t in need of much assembling and are less prone to leaks than seam gutters are. Gutters can also be found in a color that complements your home.
Half-round gutters can typically be found on colonial homes. They offer a unique design that only complements a certain style of homes. In particular, half-round gutters are best for homes with rounded rooflines that are made of copper and steel. Due to the complex design, these gutters are best left to be installed by professionals. The unique design also makes these gutters more expensive when compared to K-style gutters. Similar to K gutters; half-round gutters can be found in a range of colors and sizes.
