When you’re installing a new gutter system, you can choose between two different styles: K-style and half-round. The K-style is the more popular choice because it’s easier to install and comes in a wide range of sizes, styles and colors. However, half-round gutters also offer many benefits and are worth considering.

Here, Gutter Helmet® of Northern Minnesota, the pros in installing gutter guards, discusses when you should pick half-round gutters over K-style.

Half-Round Gutters

If your roof is angular, half-round gutters may be more suitable than K-style gutters. Also, if you’re restoring a historical home, specifically one that was built before the 1950s, half-round gutters may be more architecturally authentic. When you’re restoring a historical home, you’ll no doubt want to recreate its original look as much as possible while adding modern features at the same time. Half-round gutters can easily help you accomplish this task.

Benefits of Half-Round Gutters

Half-round gutters feature simple, clean lines that can complement the “heavy” architecture of homes with slate or tile roofing. Their smoother shape can also help reduce the risk of corrosion since water is less likely to pond in the system. They’re also easier to clean as their smooth shape can allow debris to freely flow through the system instead of being caught on rough edges or sides.
