The design of half-round gutters is exactly what the name suggests: half-round tubes. Half-round gutters are often found on older, historic homes. They are available in 5- and 6-inch widths. Because of their rounded shape, they generally carry less water than the standard K-style gutter. However, since they have fewer edges, they are easier to clean.
The half-round style of rain gutters is more expensive than other styles because they require specialty parts – like threaded rods and hanger brackets – to install. They are also heavier than K-style gutters.
For homeowners who prefer gutters that are customized to suit their homes and are interested in a more stylish and visually appealing design, half-round gutters are a popular choice. Furthermore, because half-round gutters have a smoother shape, they are less prone to corrosion. They can also withstand snow and ice better than any other style of gutter.
Half-round gutters are easy to keep clean because debris is less likely to get caught within the system. Since there is less clogging, you don’t have to clean them as frequently.
The minimal maintenance and visually pleasing appearance of half-round gutters makes them an option that deserves careful consideration when it is time for an upgrade. For more information, request a free quote from GlennStone Roofing and Exteriors.
