Half-round gutters feature a traditional look that can complement many different home styles. They come in various designs, such as double-bead, single-bead and reverse bead style. These gutters can be easily cut to match your home’s length and hung using hidden hangers for a clean look.
This gutter style is the most popular among homeowners due to its decorative appearance. Compared to other gutter styles, the K-style has a curvier profile and resembles crown molding. K-style gutters can handle more water than rounded gutters, making them a great choice for if you live in an area that experiences a lot of rain. Well-maintained K-Style gutters can help you save money on roof repair costs as they prevent water from backing up onto your roof.
Five-inch is the most common size of K-style gutters. This size should be big enough to handle water flowing down from the roof. However, you may want to choose wider downspouts if you’re located in a rainy area. This will help the gutters quickly flush the water away from your home.
Six-inch gutters work well for most homes. Half-round gutters usually come in this size. You should consult your roofing contractor if you think that this gutter size isn’t sufficient for your home.
