Your gutters are an underappreciated workhorse within the ecosystem of your roof. Not only do your gutters funnel water away from dripping down onto your entrance path, porch, etc, they also stop the buildup of water against your roof. A gutter system that isn’t working properly can cause water buildup to invade your attic space, consolidating moisture and allowing for the wood of your roofing frame to rot. Your gutters are important, and an installation of new gutters that fit your home right makes sure they can keep doing their job.
Types of Gutters
There are a variety of different gutter options M&K offers homeowners for houses of all shapes and sizes:
- Aluminum K-style – This gutter is one of the most common styles we offer. The modern, rectangular design does a great job of diverting water from your roof. Additionally, the flat shape allows for easier installation as they can be nailed directly in as opposed to needing several additional brackets to hold them in place. M&K offers both 5” and 6” gutters.
- Aluminum Half-rounds – This option is what you could call a classic. Half Rounds predate K-style and as such are more common on historic buildings. However, they can add some architectural intrigue to any home, historic or not. An additional advantage is that the smooth, rounded shape makes it more difficult for debris to get lodged in the gutter, reducing the time and energy you have to spend cleaning your gutters out. These gutters come in both 5” and 6”.
