Gutters are one of the most fundamental parts of your home’s exterior. They serve as both function and design, which is why homeowners often have a difficult time deciding between the different types of gutters. When it comes to these two elements, it’s important to differentiate the benefits of each type of gutter:
These built-in gutters preserve the intricate woodwork details of a structure, and are built into the framing of your roof. This creates a more traditional aesthetic. Their channels are typically wider than modern gutters and consist of a wood-framed gutter trough lined with copper.
Half round is the most decorative gutter option on the market. They are designed to complement both traditional and contemporary architecture, adding upscale detail to your home. Half round gutters are available in copper, lead-coated copper, zinc, aluminum, and galvanized steel.
OGEE gutters are the most common type of gutters. They are seamless and reduce the possibility of leaks. OGEE Gutters are available in copper, lead coated copper, galvanized steel, painted steel, painted aluminum, and zinc coated copper.
