K-style gutters are either 5 inches or 6 inches wide, and they have flat bottoms and backs. The front side of the gutter usually has a decorative shape that mimics crown molding. In general, K-style gutters have more capacity than their half-round cousins of the same width.
Because of their unique shape, K-style gutters are less likely to bend or protrude when impacted by force. However, they have more sharp edges on which debris can catch or accumulate, and they are also harder to clean than gutters with a more rounded shape.
K-style gutters are the most common style of gutter, which means they are generally less expensive to install than half-round or box gutters. Our portable gutter-making machine allows GlennStone Roofing and Exteriors to create seamless gutters of any custom length. This means we can finish a custom gutter job quickly and easily without the use of other vendors or subcontractors.
The main reason K-style gutters are the most widely used gutter shape is because they resemble crown molding, which makes their profile blend in better with the design of the house. However, many different gutter styles transport runoff water just as well and provide other benefits. Let GlennStone Roofing and Exteriors experts help you decide if K-style gutters are the right choice for your home. For more information, request a gutter quote today.
