Types of Rain Gutters

Living in areas that get copious amounts of rain can be difficult without the right gutters. Rain gutters, commonly offered in six materials and two shapes, are there to help when you need it.  Here’s the breakdown on how k-style and half-round gutters work cooperatively:

K-Style

This style isn’t “k” shaped, instead this gutter is curved and resembles crown moulding. Available in 5 and 6-inch widths, they’re a fan favorite because they ideally drain water for most US-based homes and are typically installed with rectangular downspouts. 

Half-Round Gutters

Half-round gutters are available in 5 and 6-inch widths. They look best when installed on antiquated, traditional brick homes. They include a semicircular trough connected to a curved lip and catch water successfully. For best optimization, pair half-round gutters with round downspouts to drain water away from the home.

Downspouts

It’s true: the larger the gutter downspout, the quicker it drains water away from a home. They’re available in sizes ranging from 3 to 6 inches for customers to decide which works best without looking too excessive. While most downspouts tend to be rectangular, they also come in round or square sizes. Installation is necessary to regulate the size of the gutter system. Installers recommend inserting downspouts for every 35 linear feet of gutter.

Gutter Sizes

The type and size of gutter pieces must be able to handle the rainfall in your area. For most homeowners, the 5-inch, k-style gutter works wonders. If a client finds that the gutters aren’t effective, the option to install additional or oversized downspouts is available.

Food for Thought on Gutters

  • Use gutter guards, an aluminum hood/mesh screen, to block debris from your gutters.
  • Gutter cleaning tools help ensure that the gutters function efficiently.
  • For homes with deep overhangs, consider installing rain chains to direct water to the ground.
  • Conductor heads allow downspouts more time to drain water during heavy rainfall.
  • Use downspout brackets to secure downspouts to the home if located in an area with heavy winds.

 

All in all, gutters are responsible for protecting your home and handling the amount of rainfall you receive. Whether you’re looking for recommendations on which gutters best suit your home or a simple DIY friendly fix, contact us for professional installation that meets and exceeds your expectations.

5/5

We have engaged Francisco and VLR Homes 3 times now. From painting the house, remodeling a master bath and constructing a screened in porch area they have responded with quality work at a fair price. When things came up like they always do, VLR had a solution (some panels of 50 year old siding replaced with Tyvek and up to code replacement). Again, at a fair price and done right the first time. Francisco is responsive with the good and the bad news â  straight up and always with a plan. We intend to use VLR in the future for projects large or small.
