Not all houses have the same type of gutters. In fact, not all houses even need gutters. This video explains the different types of gutters you might see.
Rain gutters are mainly offered in three styles: K-style, fascia, and half-round. K-style gutters are the most popular style used today. They have a crown molding, making them structurally strong. Another gutter style is fascia. This shape is tall and narrow, encompassing the siding’s height. They can be difficult to clean due to their length. The final common gutter style is the half-round shape. These have U shaped look and extend past the fascia and the K-style. However, this style doesn’t hold as much water as the K-style. Also, half-round gutters are weaker than other styles, and debris can cause it to overflow.
Rain gutters are made of many materials, but the most common are vinyl, aluminum, steel, copper, and wood. Something to keep in mind with gutter maintenance is its type. This is offered two ways: seamless and sectional. Most materials come in sections fastened together (sectional), but aluminum comes in one long strip (seamless).
