Like different materials, there are plenty of different gutter system styles for your residence as well. These styles are referred to ‘profiles’. The most popular profiles are as under:
- K style gutters – The vastly used gutter style these days is the K style gutter. It is named by the Sheet Metal and Air Conditioning Contractors’ National Association (SMACNA). The reason of their popularity is the crown molding shape they have. These decorative gutters are also called ogee gutters.
- Half round style gutters – A half round gutter style doesn’t perform very well. As the name suggests they have the shape of a semi-circle with an opening at the top. They are not as deep as the K style gutter and easily over flow in case of a debris accumulation. Exterior hangers are used to support the system instead of hidden ones.
- Fascia style gutters – The fascia style gutter is used where fascia boards are not already built. Often these types of styles are custom made and are most commonly found in the western part of the United States. The smooth surface of the system which provides the function of a fascia board, hides the rafter tail of the gutter.
Now, that you have some knowledge about basic gutter system, think wisely before choosing one for your residence. Installing them is a long-term investment which can either increase or decrease the worth of your property.
