Half-round gutters are one of the standard options here at Topper Construction. But why should you choose half-round gutters for your home? In this blog, we’ll take a closer look at the answers to that question. Half-round gutters have many choices for customization and can be a charming design element for homeowners who would prefer not to settle for more common options, such as the K-style gutter.
Half-Round Gutters Are An Aesthetic Highlight
Half-round gutters can serve as an amazing addition to your home. They make for a wonderful aesthetic highlight. How do they do this? For older homes especially they fit in with the exterior your home already has. Historical accuracy is also a definite plus, especially if you’re looking to mimic certain historical homes. Of course, customization is a major perk of these types of gutters.
Take your pick of colors, materials, sizes, and shapes. In terms of shapes, half-round gutters are much smoother and tend to be more pleasing to the eye. This smoother shape helps prevent it decay due to corrosion. Incidentally, this leads us to our next point: low-maintenance.
Half-Round Gutters Are Also Low-Maintenance
As we briefly touched upon above, half-round gutters are also low-maintenance. Corrosion and rust won’t be able to affect this type of gutter as easily as their K-style counterparts. They are also much easier to clean since leaves and other kinds of debris can’t clog up the works. Best of all, you won’t need to clean these gutters out as often. And whenever you do need to clean them, you won’t need to work nearly as hard in order to get the job done.
When you need to have your gutters upgraded, half-round gutters make for a strong consideration.
A Word of Caution About Half-Round Gutters
Here’s a word of caution about half-round gutters: their cost. They do tend to be more expensive. Also, this extra cost is because they are not as commonplace as other types of gutters. However, never fear, as we do offer them to you. Since some special equipment is needed for installation (such as threaded rods and hanger brackets) you will probably need to rely on professional, expert assistance to put them up. Lastly, since half-round gutters are heavier than K-style gutters, they might be more prone to falling or causing other problems with your home’s exterior.
