Gutters work to channel rainwater away from your home, keeping it dry and intact. But they also serve as a design element, which means they can affect the overall look of your home. That’s why, if you’re investing in new gutters, you’ll need to consider their profile and see if they match with your roofline and exterior. The two gutter profiles available today are K-style and half-round.
Sleek and Modern K-Style Gutters
You’ll probably notice that a majority of homes in your neighborhood have K-style gutters – a testament to their popularity. This gutter profile is designed to resemble Colonial-style crown molding, allowing them to fit with modern homes with angled roofing. Aside from providing a finished look for your home, K-style gutters are easy to install because they are flat on one side. This means they can be firmly and directly attached to the fascia.
Classic and Lovely Half-Round Gutters
This gutter profile doesn’t get as much love as K-style gutters because they are typically found on older, historic homes. Half-round gutters are known by their U-shape, looking just like a tube neatly cut in half. This smooth design allows them to match with the rounded architectural details of older homes. But the distinctive U-shape also means they have less areas where water can gather, helping prevent corrosion and leaks.
