While homes nowadays feature more modern aesthetics, the half round, or U-shaped, gutter system has remained a popular choice since it was invented back in the early 1900’s. At Tristar Gutters, we understand that choosing the perfect gutter system for your home, in terms of both function and aesthetics, can be difficult. That is why we offer a wide variety of gutter systems for both residential and commercial properties, including our half round gutters.
The Benefits of Half Round Gutters
Our half round gutters offer a distinctive appeal that is perfect for certain homes, especially those that have a more traditional architectural style. Half round gutters are available in single bead, double bead, and reverse bead styles. These gutters are most commonly available in copper and galvanized steel, but can also be purchased in a wide range of aluminum colours. Since the introduction of the reverse bead half round gutter, a system that offers many of the benefits previously only available in K style gutters, the half round gutter has hit resurgence in the market place. Some of these benefits include a wide variety of colours, ease of installation, hidden hanger options, and custom cut lengths.
Half Round Gutter Style Options
At Tristar Gutters, we offer our half round gutters in different colours and materials that you can choose from when trying to pick the best gutters for your home or building. Our 6-inch European half round gutters come in different colours that we would be more than happy to go through with you over the phone. They also come in three different material options, each with their own benefits. The material options that we offer for our half round gutters are:
- Aluminum – this is the most popular gutter material on the market, as it is inexpensive, durable, and easy to work with. Our aluminum gutters also come in a variety of different colours and can last up to 30 years.
- Steel – this is a popular material choice for areas that experience extreme weather, such as heavy rain and snow, because it is extremely strong and durable. Although steel gutters may begin to rust after 20-25 years, they offer more strength than aluminum gutters, and are perfect for industrial or commercial buildings.
- Copper – this is one of the most durable gutter options, and it brings a certain aesthetic to a home’s facade, which appeals to property owners who are looking to customize their home. Even though copper gutters may be a large initial investment, they will save you time and money on maintenance, repairs, and replacements in the long run. When buying copper gutters, you also need to keep in mind that they will only stay shiny for the first month or two, and will eventually turn a greenish colour.
