Half Round vs. K-Style Gutters

When it comes to exterior upgrades, gutters are often overlooked for components such as siding, roofing or garage doors—but they are an important part of your home’s exterior in terms of both function and aesthetics.

Do you need new gutters for your home? You have a couple different style options—half round and K-style. What is the difference between them? Is one better than the other? Keep reading to learn more!

What Is the Difference Between Half Round and K-Style Gutters?

Half round gutters aren’t as common in U.S. homes, found on more historic homes in Europe. Like their name suggests, half round gutters are rounded in shape and form a half circle. They work well for rounded roofs (like on a turret) and can provide a unique look, especially when copper is used.

K-style gutters, also called ogee gutters, have flat bottoms and backs and are decorative in appearance. They can mimic crown molding, which is popular in interior design. K-style gutters also have more capacity and can hold more water. Below is a picture of a K-style gutter with a leaf screen system installed on top.

Both gutters are durable and strong, but if you’re looking for something a little more aesthetically unique, consider copper gutters. If you want something more traditional that has more capacity, K-style gutters are a better choice.
