K-Style vs. Half-Round Gutters: What Makes Them Different

K-Style vs. Half-Round Gutters: What Makes Them Different

There are two styles of gutters: K-style and half-round. Which would look best on your roof? In today’s post, Mascon Inc., a top provider of gutter and roof replacement services, sheds light on the differences between these two options. 


K-Style gutters mimic the Colonial style of crown molding. They are often installed on modern homes because they work well on the angled roofs that are often popular in these home styles. Homeowners are attracted to K-style gutters because they’re available in a wide variety of sizes, lengths and colors, making them highly versatile. Apart from that, they also have two times the capacity half-round gutters, making them more efficient at channeling rainwater toward the downspouts. For assistance in installing the K-style gutter in your home, simply turn to the gutter installation and roof inspection pros of Mascon, Inc.

Half-Round Gutters

Half-round gutters are more suited for homes that have rounded rooflines, which are often seen in homes that were built before the 1950s. If you’re restoring a home that was built prior to the 60s and you want it to look as historically accurate as possible, then half-round gutters are probably the best choice. 

While not as wildly popular as the K-style, half-round gutters do have their own set of advantages. For instance, cleaning half-round gutters is easier due to the structure of the system. They’re also less likely to experience corrosion and other gutter issues as there aren’t many nooks and crannies where dirt and debris can gather.
