Gutters play a key role in keeping your home safe from water damage. A failing gutter system isn’t something you should take lightly as a homeowner. Delaying repairs or a replacement will only cause more stressful and costly problems to other parts of your home.

When replacing gutters, you can either get K-style and half-round styles. ARCH Exteriors, your trusted gutter installation team is here to help you choose which of these two popular styles is best for your home. 


K-Style Gutters

They are probably the most common type and can be seen in almost every home in the U.S. They have the features of unique colonial-style crown molding that flawlessly matches a contemporary home. Due to their flat sides, K-style gutters are much easier to install than its counterpart.

You’ll enjoy the benefits and versatility of K-style gutters regardless of the gutter type you choose for your roof replacement. If you choose seamless gutters, you’ll never worry about leakage as much as that of seamed ones. If you prefer the latter, there should be no problem as long as you make sure the gutter segments are properly sealed.

Half-Round Gutters

This particular gutter style is ideal for modern and more luxurious homes with unique architectural designs. Half-round gutters have clean, simple lines that go well with slate and tile roofing. One of their most distinctive features is their smoother shape that helps minimize the chances of corrosion, mainly because there are lesser areas where water can build up. Lastly, half-round gutters are easier to maintain than K-style gutters because debris is less likely to get trapped on edges or sides.
