The most popular style of gutters on the market today are k-style gutters, also referred to as Ogee gutters. They are favored over other styles because of their attractive crown molding design.
What are K-Style Gutters?
K-style gutters are the type of gutters seen on most modern American homes. They’re flat with angled sides and when seen from the side, they resemble the letter “K.” The design of k-style gutters makes them an ideal choice for homeowners in the Pacific Northwest because they can catch and direct large amounts of rainwater.
Benefits of K-Style Gutters
K-style gutters are the most widely used gutters and for good reason. They’re typically constructed with aluminum, which is corrosion-resistant, lightweight, and very affordable. They also come in a wide array of colors to complement any exterior color palette and they’re very durable.
K-style gutters also hang on the edge of the roof, providing a seamless finish that imitates the look of crown molding.
K-style gutters are also deep, generally about 5” or larger to help homeowners who experience heavy rainfall.
Disadvantages of K-Style Gutters
While K-style gutters boast many advantages, they also come with a couple of disadvantages. First of all, because of their inner angles, they’re more prone to rotting debris. Which leads us to the second disadvantage being that k-style gutters are hard to clean.
However, don’t let these factors change your mind about k-style gutters. With professional cleaning services, you won’t ever have to worry about built-up debris in your gutters.
