The most popular gutter profile right now is K-style, but there are some situations where the older half-round gutter profile is the better choice. In this blog post, Gutter Helmet® of Michigan, a rain gutter guard expert, explains why you should choose half-round gutters over the more common K-style gutters in certain situations.

When Should You Choose Half-Round Gutters?

K-style gutters became popular because they look better on modern and angular roof designs. However, if you have a house that was built before the 1950s, then K-style gutters’ angular design will clash with your roof’s appearance. Half-round gutters will look better on your historic roof. Half-round gutters also have a symmetrical U-shape that is very effective at getting debris out of the gutters and into the downspouts.

Half-Round Gutter Advantages

Half-round gutters look better on homes that have more rounded roof designs, whether they are historic homes or modern homes. Half-round gutters also have more smoother insides, which allows water to flow more freely. Half-round gutters have less seams for debris to catch onto, which greatly increases its life span and durability. Seamless half-round gutters also exist, and these gutters require even less maintenance.

How Gutter Helmet Can Help You

We can install a gutter protection system to complement your new half-round gutters. Gutter Helmet can protect your gutters from debris by completely covering them. This leaves no space for leaves, dirt, twigs and other debris to enter. Meanwhile, rainwater can still enter your gutters through a horizontal slit. Rain will cling to Gutter Helmet because of its textured surface and unique design.
