A faulty gutter system can result in gallons of water being dumped directly onto the ground next to the foundation of a house. This can cause water to leak through the foundation wall and create problems in the basement or crawlspace. Because termites need water to reproduce and thrive, gutters that dump excess water near the house encourage termite infestation. Problem gutters or gutter installed incorrectly can also cause damage to your home’s structural integrity by allowing water to damage the fascia, soffit, or wood framing of the house.

Types of Gutters

K Style Gutters

Originally styled after crown molding and designed to be used on roofs with flat, vertical edges, K Style gutters can be mounted easily on most homes, making them the most popular style of gutter on the market. In fact, over 80 percent of gutter systems seen today are K Style gutters. This style of gutter is relatively cheap to produce and install and can make your home look more elegant and beautiful.

Half-Round Gutters

Half-round gutters get thier name from the fact that their shape is half of a circle. This design has a smaller surface area at the bottom of the gutter, which allows rainwater to travel faster to the downspouts. The faster water can flow from the roof to the downspout, the more water can be collected from your roof.

All of our gutters can be ordered in either beautiful copper, or in a wide variety of colors of aluminum.
