Gutters are the first line of defense against water and moisture getting into your home. When it rains, it pours in your gutters will remove all water and running away from your house’s foundation, walls, and roof. But what happens when your gutters stop working due to age or they are becoming too difficult for you to clean? This might be time for a new change with different types of home gutters.
The gutter’s main purpose is to run water away from the home. Gutters need to be cleaned regularly to make sure there is no blockage so the water can flow freely. Leaf guards are a great accessory to keep debris out of the body of the gutter, but another threat can be wintertime when ice and snow can possibly break a gutter with their weight.
It is common to find half round gutters on old homes. The shape of a tube cut in half longways, these gutters or a simple design that are easy to clean but they also can get clogged easily because of the wide open top. This is where another kind called K- style gutters can help. This one is easy to install for the flat back that is nailed directly onto the fascia board below your roofline.
