What Advantages Does the Half-Round Gutter Shape Have Over Other Gutter Styles?
You may be reaching the end of a new construction project or have discovered that new gutters are necessary for your existing home. While there are many different gutter styles and materials, you may be wondering which type would be perfect for your home. There are several options available, including different shapes and widths. You can also choose from a wide range of colours and styles. One option we often recommend for our customers is half-round gutters. Half-round gutters are shaped like a tube that has been cut in half lengthwise and are an excellent choice for several reasons.  

  • Smooth Surface. Because there are fewer seams and creases, water cannot collect as easily, and as a result, it is much easier to wash out debris and keep clean.
  • Less Maintenance. Half-round gutters are less likely to leak or corrode because they have fewer seams than other styles. This will save you money on costly repairs or replacement.
  • High-End Appearance. Half-round gutters can add curb appeal, especially to historic homes that typically have more rounded architecture. Many new construction homeowners are also choosing this classic design.

We are always happy to consult with our customers and answer questions about the types of gutters available and which options work and look best based on the parameters of your building. If you feel that half-round gutters may be the perfect choice for your home or would like to discuss your options, please give us a call at Gorilla Gutters today!
