Choosing Gutter styles That Complement Your Home’s Architectural Design
Looking to upgrade your Fairfield County’s gutter system, but are afraid of ruining the look and curb appeal of your home?
Gutters may have had the reputation of being unsightly in the past, but that’s far from the truth nowadays. Seamless gutter systems offer some sleek styles and colors that add to your home’s exterior, instead of taking away from it. These designs can complement any architectural style home in the northeast. Here are some tips on choosing the right gutter style to enhance your home’s exterior:
Colonial/Revival – This design is known for its rectangular shape and symmetrical architecture. The Colonial/Revival home can be made of clapboard, stone, and even brick. They usually have a hipped type roof with flat fascia boards.
Gutter Styles to Consider– The best option is the K-Style gutters. They have the look of crown molding so it will look like it’s a part of the home.
Tudor/Revival– Inspired by late 19th to early 20th century, this home has characteristics of the medieval and renaissance times. These residences are constructed out of wood, brick, or stucco. They typically have steeply pitched gable-type roofs.
Gutter Styles to Consider– The Half-round gutters are an excellent choice for this type of architecture, especially if constructed of copper material. Over time, copper ages and gets a weathered type film on the surface. This complements the Tudor style’s traditional look.
Cape Cod- Originating in New England during the 17th century, these homes were built to resist the blustery conditions of Cape Cod weather. The simple homes were designed with gable-type roofs.
Gutter Styles to Consider– If you want to keep with the simplistic design, the half-round gutters will work well. If you decide to give your home a little something extra, the K-style ones will provide it with an elegant touch.
