Gutters are an essential part of any roof replacement project. Their primary purpose is to flush rainwater away from the roof, keeping your home safe from water-related damage and channeling the flow to a safe drainage site away from your home. This means making decisions about which gutters to go with is just as important as deciding which roofing material to choose.
When it comes to gutters, there are many styles you can choose from, but there are two that deserve a closer look: half-round and K-style gutters.
As far as usefulness is concerned, roofing contractors agree that the performance of either style of gutters depends mostly on the size. Proper sizing is crucial in gutter installations, which is why it’s best to have a professional take measurements and make recommendations about how big your gutters need to be.
Traditional homes tend to have intricate crown moldings that give their exteriors a finished and luxurious appearance. K-style gutters mimic this look, which is why they are the go-to choice for many homeowners. Their finish allows them to blend equally well with modern designs. These gutters have a flat side, making them easier to attach to the fascia and install.
On the other hand, half-round gutters are better suited for homes with metal roofs or any roofing system with a rounded roofline. The classic look of this style of gutter makes them the number one choice for homeowners who wish to preserve the appeal of historic houses.
