K-STYLE GUTTERS

The term K-style gutters is derived from the profile of this type of guttering when viewed from the side. The outer shape of the gutter is supposed to (very vaguely) represent the letter K, as opposed to a perfectly-rounded, half-circle-shaped gutter. Like other types of gutters, K-style gutters are available in different sizes. The two most common sizes, as measured by gutter diameter, are five-inch and six-inch; though seven-inch, eight-inch, and custom sizes are obtainable from certain places. K-gutters are most often made with aluminum.

HALF ROUND GUTTERS

Half-round gutters look like you took a fully-enclosed pipe and cut it in half lengthwise. A "true" half-round gutter section has curled-top outer edges on both sides, although you can purchase these types of gutters where the outer edge has a curled top on only one side. Like traditional "K-style" gutters, half-round gutters are available in different widths and colors, and can be purchased in sections or installed as a seamless gutter.

Fabricated on-site, standard gutters and downspouts from CRC are custom measured, cut and formed for a near seamless fit. Unlike pre-fabricated standard gutters, our gutters help eliminate the leaking and staining found with seamed gutters.
Copper gutters age beautifully with a patina finish that can only be created with aged copper. Unlike most standard aluminum gutters, in addition to box and k-style shapes, copper gutters come in round and half-round styles, offering even more character to your home.
Galvanized 26- or 24-guage steel remains a viable choice for the retrofit gutter market because of its high strength and low rates of thermal movement. Steel gutters have twice the tensile strength of aluminum, with approximately half the amount of thermal expansion and contraction.
