Can Gutter Systems Be Stylish?
The home’s gutter system is the last thing you think of when it comes to portraying a specific style with the look of your home. They have an essential function, for sure, but they can also add to the home’s exterior with the many designs they come in. Here are some of those styles:
Half-Round Gutters– These are your traditional gutters, characterized by their half-tube shape. With the introduction of the rolled or beaded edging, they became popular with homeowners looking to add an elegant touch to their historic homes.
K-Style- These gutters come with a flat bottom, flat back, and a curved decorative shape to the front. They have a classic look and give a more luxurious touch to the exterior as they have the look of the crown molding you see on the inside of homes.
Box Style- These are characterized by their “boxy” shape. This style of gutter has an architectural look to it, giving your home a fashionable appeal.
Curved Style- This usually uses the K-Style or Box gutters and installs them in a way so they can add drainage to rounded exteriors. Professionals install them to fit snug against the curve or angles of a home’s roofline making them appear seamless.
