Which Type of Eavestrough System is Best for Me?
Eavestroughs are available in many different colors and styles. Each variety has its own unique aesthetic appeal and benefits.
K-style gutters are named because their profile resembles the letter K. They come in several different sizes, but the two most common are the five-inch and the six-inch versions. K-gutters are most often made of aluminum, but are also available in vinyl, copper, and steel. K-gutters have the benefit of being stronger and more able to handle and hold more water than round gutters, with less chance of bending under heavy weight.
Seamless Aluminum Eavestroughs
Seamless eavestroughs are economical, effective, and easy to install, which is why they are a top pick for contractors and homeowners alike. Seamless gutters are custom-made to fit the exact length needed for your home. They have no joints for water or debris to get into or drip through. Aluminum eavestroughs have many distinct advantages. They won’t rust and are much less likely to crack like vinyl or steel.
Half-round Eavestroughs have a vintage appeal and are often found on turn-of-the-century homes. Many homeowners like to go with this look to add a bit of class to their homes’ exterior. Half-round eavestroughs are made from variety of materials, including copper, steel, and plastic. They can also be made as seamless. Some of the advantages they offer over K-style gutters include their rounded design that limits corrosion and clogs and allows for easier cleaning. The one drawback is they don’t hold as much water and sometimes that can result in the gutter overflow in high-precipitation areas.
Copper eavestroughs are a great option if you are looking to add a certain style or artistic flair to your home’s exterior. Copper gutters are durable, and they will patina over time, but they won’t rust or need to be repainted. Copper eavestroughs need to be professionally installed because they do require soldering to make them watertight. Copper gutters or eavestroughs tend to be more expensive and harder to install. But if you want your home to have that unique beautiful exterior accent, they are worth considering.
If you are installing new eavestroughs, you may want to install gutter guards. Gutter guards eliminate the need to clean your eavestroughs every few months and help prevent water damage to your home. Since you are already investing in your home by replacing your eavestrough system, why not add gutter guards and eliminate the nuisance of clogged eavestroughs and downspouts and debris cleanup?
