Pay close attention to your gutters. They might all look the same, but they come in different styles. That said, you need to pick the right one that will suit your needs. RainTech, one of the premier roofing contractors, discusses key features of some of the most common types of gutters.
Also known as OGEE gutters, K-style resembles crown molding with flat bottoms and backs. Its name, however, has nothing to do with its shape. The moniker is based on the alphabet gutter listing where this style has ranked 11th. Moreover, it has two variants: the 5-inch and 6-inch K-style.
The 5-inch K-style gutters are suitable for areas that experience light to moderate rainfall. It is also a perfect match for roofing systems with short ridge-to-eave distances. On the other hand, the 6-inch variant can handle moderate to heavy rates of rainfall.
As the name suggests, this gutter style is essentially a half circle with the half facing the roof. It has a classic, decorative look because of its unique curve. As part of our comprehensive gutter service, RainTech installs 6-inch, half-round gutters that can withstand a prolonged downpour.
After choosing the right gutter style, you can now pick items that can help prevent water damage. Investing in a high-quality gutter protection system can help minimize gutter maintenance. Our gutter guard lineup includes the Gutter Topper Leaf Terminator® and the Solution®. We’ll help you pick the right one that suits your preferences.
