K-style gutters have a flat bottom on the back for enhanced installation and aesthetics. The front is gracefully curved to imitate crown molding. When viewed from the side, the K-Style gutter is a mix of straight and angular lines that mildly resemble the letter K.

Homeowners select this type for its many advantages, such as strength and excellent water flow. Due to its popularity, most manufacturers standardized their equipment to produce the K-Style gutter.


What are the Benefits of K-Style Gutters?

Standardized Manufacturing: They can be manufactured in many dimensions to accommodate any style of home.

Superb Performance: They hold and transport more rainwater than similarly sized diameters, providing excellent water flow.

Durability: The unique shape means they are less likely to bend or protrude when impacted, even when constructed from a lightweight material.

Longevity: The back or bottom is flat, which means it can be riveted directly to the house’s fascia. Brackets, like any part of a gutter system, are prone to corrosion and damage. Since this style of gutter installation doesn’t require as many brackets to keep it in place, it needs less maintenance.

Seamless: The K-Style are seamless gutters. Avoid water damage due to fewer leaks and clogs.
