Here are a few benefits of a K-Style Gutter:
- No Leaks. K-Style gutters provide a seamless finish, making it less prone to leaks that could lead to your foundation and cause damage. It’s also by far the most efficient in residential applications.
- More Capacity. Due to its design being different than a rounded style gutter, it can hold more water.
- Strong and durable. It’s less likely to bend or protrude when impacted by force.
- Easy To Install. Since K-Style gutters are flat on one side, they’re easier to install since you don’t need to worry about installing a lot of brackets to keep your gutters in place.
- Readily Available. Because of the popularity of K-Style Gutters, they can easily be found in many different materials and sizes. FSM offers Aluminum, Galvalume, and Copper. Many contractors also have the machinery to make K-Style gutters at the jobsite, making custom sizes to fit perfectly with your home.
- Stylish Appearance. Homeowners prefer the appearance and form of K-Style gutters because the curvier profile closely mimics the look of crown molding, a popular fixture in interior design.
