In the market for new gutters? You may have heard of K-Style gutters from a licensed roofing contractor before. If you haven’t, or if you are simply eager to learn more about them, read on for more information.
Why It’s Named K-Style
There are no actual explanations as to how the name “K-Style” came to be. Some sources say that it’s because of its shape which resembles the letter “K”, while others believe that it’s because it falls at the 11th spot in the list of the most popular types of rectangular gutters, which when converted into alphabetical equivalents yields the letter “K”. Hence, K-Style.
K-Style gutters are one of the most popular and common gutter system options in the last 50 years. The style can complement different properties but it looks similar to crown molding so it’s commonly used in traditional homes.
If you’re interested to install this type of gutter system, you can ask your roofing company about the various options they have for you. Typically, the following K-Style gutter varieties are available to you:
K-Style Gutter Sizes: You can choose 5” or 6” K-Style gutters since these two are the most common sizes used by residential owners. However, sizes 7” and 8” are also available if bigger troughs are more ideal for your home.
K-Style Gutter Metals: Before you ask for roof replacement services from your trusted company, make sure to decide first on what type of K-Style gutter you want to have. You can choose from different metals such as aluminum, galvalume and copper, all of which have something different to offer from the other, which determines how beneficial an option can be to you.
