Usual Choice For Modern Homes
K-style seamless gutters are called that because they vaguely resemble the letter K when viewed from the side. Builders typically use this style of gutters when constructing modern homes because they blend into the architecture more smoothly. These gutters also resemble the crown molding seen in so many modern homes.
The popularity of K-style seamless gutters has led gutter manufacturers to make this style most common in their gutter-making machines. This allows building contractors to feed aluminum sheets into the gutter-making machines to produce K-style seamless gutters of selected lengths. Over 80% of the gutters installed today are K-style seamless. The lower cost of producing and installing these gutters is a main reason.
But are the K-style seamless gutters the best for your home? That’s an individual choice.
There are some differences between the K-style seamless gutters and half-round gutters that you should be aware of. One of those differences is the K-style seamless gutters will hold more water in the same diameter than a half-round gutter. So if you live in an area where there is a lot of rain, you may want to choose the K-style seamless. Also, K-style seamless gutters are stronger than half-round because of their unique shape. But, the K-style seamless gutters have more edges for debris to catch on. The shape of the K-style seamless gutters makes them harder to clean, also.
