Half-Round Gutters Could Be A Great Option For Your Home

Half-round gutters are one of the more distinctive styles available for homeowners. Unlike the flat surface of traditional K-style gutters, half-round gutters have a rounded bottom. While these gutters undoubtedly look different, they perform the same function as traditional gutters but with a number of additional benefits. If you are in the market for new gutters, learn why a half-round gutter might be a better option for you.

Easier to Maintain

When it comes to fixtures around your home, the easier they are to maintain, the better. Compared to K-style gutters, some homeowners find that half-round gutters come along with less of a time commitment when it comes to keeping them in good condition. 

For example, the flat surface of K-style gutters makes it much easier for debris to land on the surface, collect, and eventually form a clog. The circular shape of these gutters makes it harder for debris to collect inside them, which means clogs occur far less frequently, and keeping the gutters clean is easier. 

Element Friendly

Gutters are exposed to the elements on a constant basis, so it is essential that they be able to withstand this continuous exposure while remaining intact. Fortunately, this style of gutters is up for the challenge. These gutters' rounded design also leaves less room for water to pool. 

As a result, as soon as the moisture from rainfall or snow lands in the gutter, it begins to flow away. Some K-style gutters do not offer this capability. Given the design, in areas that are prone to high levels of precipitation, half-round gutters are a great option. 

Increased Durability

Half-round gutters also afford homeowners the luxury of durability. As previously mentioned, the circular style of these gutters makes it harder for debris and water to collect. Not only does a clean gutter function better, but when debris and water rest inside a gutter, it is much easier for corrosion to occur. 

Corrosion essentially eats away at the gutters, deteriorating the surface and creating holes. When it rains, water will leak from these holes and fall directly down toward your foundation or on top of your landscaping. Since these gutters help keep everything in motion, you will have less of a concern that corrosion will develop and damage your gutters, which can extend their lifespan.

About Me

Keep on Building, Keep on Learning

Ask any construction worker if they know everything about their profession, and they will generally respond with a resounding "no." This does not mean that construction workers are not knowledgeable about their jobs — they really are! What it does mean is that they are always learning, and that they understand that continuing to learn is a part of the job. That's something we think that most people could stand to learn from. If were were all as open to building knowledge as contractors and builders, imagine what we could learn. We decided to contribute, in our own small part, by writing this blog about construction work. We hope you enjoy and learn from it.
