Gutters have different kinds of profiles. The most popular profile on the market today is K-style. However, there are times when K-style gutters are not the right choice for a home. In today’s article, Chattahoochee Gutter Co., Inc, the leading choice for high-quality gutter caps in our local area, explains when to choose half-round gutters over the more popular K-style gutters.

When to Choose Half-Round Gutters

K-style gutters look better on modern homes because of their angular roof designs. If you have a historic home that was built before the 1950s, then it’s likely that half-round gutters will look better on your home. K-style gutters are also not the best choice homeowners that prioritize gutter performance over other qualities. Half-round gutters have a symmetrical U-shape that is more effective at getting debris out of the gutters.

Benefits of Half-Round Gutters

Half-round gutters use an older design than K-style gutters, which means that they look better on older homes. The inside of these gutters is also smoother than the inside of a K-style gutter. This can improve the durability of half-round gutters and prevents its metal from corroding over time. Seamless half-round gutters, in particular, require much less maintenance than typical gutters.
