A Classy Option
Do you want a return to the days when even gutters were an elegant addition to homes? Then you want to consider choosing half-round gutters for your home.
Choosing half-round gutters will set your home apart from the rest in your neighborhood. They will distinguish your home from all the others.
Traditionally, half-round gutters were installed on more upscale homes. Now, you can get the same look for more moderately-priced homes, as well. Whether your home is historic in style, or more modern, half-round gutters will lend beauty to the exterior.
At present, half-round gutters are not as plentiful as the K-style guttering. You’ll have to search for contractors who can produce and install half-round gutters. This lower availability also makes half-round gutters a bit more expensive. They also need special rods and brackets for hanging, adding to the expense.
One of the advantages of half-round gutters over K-style gutters has to do with the rounded shape. The smoother inner shape of the half-round gutters decreases the chances of corrosion, since water tends to collect less with this shape. This smoother surface also allows debris to wash away and not hang up and collect, possibly leading to a blockage.
On the other hand, half-round gutters won’t hold the volume of water the K-style gutters will handle. If you live in an area with a lot of rain, this is a factor to consider seriously. Also, the half-round gutters are heavier and require more material to support them.
