What are Half-Round Gutters?
Half-round gutters are perfect for homes built before the 1950s due to their rounded rooflines. This gutter style offers great visual appeal in keeping with the age or period of a home.
Traditional half-round gutters, paired with round downspouts, are also a popular design trend for modern homes. Particularly where metal features, like window frames or railings, are prominent characteristics of the house.
As the name implies, this style gutter is a half-round or half-circle shape.
It is curved from edge to edge, different from the angular look of the K-Style gutter found on most Texas homes.
Unlike the K-Style, with a flat bottom, the curved edges of half-round require more brackets, which can increase the cost and make for a more complex gutter installation.
What’s the Benefit of Half-Round Gutters?
Fewer Clogs: The curved shape means debris such as leaves, dirt, and pine needles are less likely to clog the gutter. Water flow isn’t impeded by angles or corners.
Ease in Cleaning: Every gutter system requires cleaning, some less often than others. Half-rounds make cleaning a breeze due to its simple tube-shape lines.
Classic Style: Half-round gutters are especially suited to historic homes by complementing a period house’s age and character. By extension, this adds value to the home, as well as significantly increasing the curb appeal.
