Are you finding that you need gutter repairs more and more often? Then it’s time to replace your old, rusty gutters with efficient, beautiful half-round gutters.
There are two main types of gutters you see on homes today—half round and K-style. Half round gutters are what you typically see on older or high-end homes. They offer a more historic and elegant style than standard K-style gutters and match any type of architecture. Not only are they nice to look at, they also are extremely sturdy and reliable. If you’re looking to add aesthetic appeal to the exterior of your home, half round gutters are definitely the way to go.
Are you redoing the exterior of your home? Are your current gutters old, leaky, or falling apart? Contact Shanco today for half round gutter installation services!
While there are a few different materials your half round gutters can be made from, aluminum and copper are the most popular.
Half round copper gutters are typically found on historic European homes, and are popular on upscale American homes in the Maryland, DC, and Virginia areas. Because they are made of one continuous sheet of metal, half round gutters historically have been in limited supply. Not many manufacturers had the machinery to create them, and copper was one of the only materials that could be used. While copper is on the pricier end, nothing compares to the beauty of copper gutters.
Thanks to advances in manufacturing technology, half round gutters are no longer only for upscale homes but for anyone in the Maryland and Northern Virginia region. Seamless aluminum half round gutters are popping up all over the mid-range housing market, bringing elegance and a historic look with them.
Traditionally, half round gutters feature a lip that rolls outward, so the gutter trough can sit in a semi-circular, wrap-around hanger. With the introduction of half round aluminum gutters with a lip that is rolled inward, installers can use hidden hangers. This reverse beading means the gutter only needs to be painted on one side, since only the outside is visible.
