Gutters are one of the most important lines of defense for your home. Without them, your house’s structural integrity would’ve been ruined long ago, and your roof probably would have numerous leak patches on it. There are many types of gutters, but none are more beloved and as popular as the K-style gutter.
The K-Style Gutter
The K-style gutter, aptly named because of the shape it makes when you look at it from the side, is installed on nearly 80% of homes across America due to its easy installation, stylish look and durability. However, those aren’t the only reasons the K-style remains the popular choice; they also come with their own set of advantages.
Better at Holding Water
One of the advantages that a K-style gutter system provides is that it is less prone to leaks due to its seamless finish. For extra protection for the gutter itself, you can have a contractor add a gutter guard to keep out debris without sacrificing its stylish look. These gutters can also hold more water compared to the round style gutter that was used in homes before.
K-style gutters are also durable in a way that they’re not easy to bend when impacted by an outside force, and the materials for it are easy to find and come in a variety of sizes. When installing these gutters, the design of a K-style gutter also makes it easy to screw directly onto your fascia board, eliminating extensive labor around your home.
