When it comes to choosing gutters and gutter protection systems for your Minnesota home, being aware of the pros and cons of different types is imperative. In today’s post, Gutter Helmet® of Minnesota, your leading provider of the best gutter guard in the market, discusses the various gutter system styles available to you.

K-Style Gutters

K-style gutters are characterized by their flat bottoms and backs, which form a “K”-shape profile that’s easily noticeable from the side. Some have a decorative style that imitates crown molding. K-style gutters can be attached directly to the fascia. Commonly found on Minnesota homes, their depth allows them to hold more rainwater and snowmelt than other types of gutters. 

Half-Round Gutters

Half-round gutters are often found on historic homes. Featuring round tubing and curled outer edges, they allow for easy cleaning and smooth flow of rainwater and snowmelt.

They boast a classic aesthetic due to the fact that they were traditionally made of copper. The patination of half-round gutters gives them their noticeable shine and elegance. Nowadays, half-round gutter systems are available in other materials, including aluminum, zinc and galvanized steel. Keeping them in place requires the use of special rods and brackets installed along the roofline.

Fascia Gutter System

Fascia gutters are installed on homes without fascia boards in place. The gutters look like fascia boards along the roofline, making the system a two-in-one product. The edges of the rafter tails are hidden to prevent insects and water from entering your home.
