Half round gutters have been around for a long time and some consider them to be a more superior type of gutter.
Rain gutters serve a very important purpose – they capture rain water and divert it away from your home. This prevents damage to your roof, siding, and foundation. They preserve the integrity of your home!
Water damage is a common problem due to homeowners not cleaning or maintaining their gutters. Damage can appear in the form of the fascia and soffit rotting. Water can crack the foundation of your home, destroy your landscape and even damage the interior walls of your home.
Half Round Gutters
Half round systems offer a more historical and elegant look than the standard “K-Style” gutters. They are arched so that they collect rain or melting ice and then divert it to the downspout. They are available in a variety of materials such as copper and aluminum.
Because of their classic style, they are often used on older homes that are restored or on new construction that is intended to have a classic look. Historically half round systems were primarily applied to upscale homes. However, the emergence of half round aluminum systems has opened the market for half round to be installed on more modest homes.
Not only are they preferred for their aesthetic quality, but they are considered a superior type of system.
