K-style gutters are the most popular type of gutter used nowadays, and if you buy a home it will probably have this type of gutter on it. It’s a common misconception that they are named after their shape, but they are not shaped like a “K”. Instead, their name is derived from a national association that lists it as option “K” in the available and common types of gutters. They are very popular because of their appearance and how decorative they are. These gutters have a much curvier profile than other types of gutters, and homeowners generally love the way they look. The look is often considered to closely mimic the appearance of crown molding, which is popular for homeowners to install around their ceilings in their homes. They can hold more rainwater than rounded gutters are able to, making them an ideal choice if you live somewhere where it rains a lot. In addition, they come in a number of sizes and materials, and there are many roofers who are able to make them on-demand at a site to fit perfectly on the home. This means there will be a seamless end product that won’t leak very easily. Also, because of the flat back on the k-style gutters, they can be screwed flush against the fascia of the home, creating a seamless look.
