Other Types of Gutter System Styles We Install
While seamless gutters are appropriate for the vast majority of houses, each one is unique, and certain aspects of yours may have special requirements. For these purposes, Victory also offers sectional gutters, European gutters, K-style gutters, fascia gutters, and half-round gutters.
Sectional gutters are pre-cut and installed in pieces. The additional joints require a tight seal in order to avoid leakage, which is a downside, but the smaller sections can be preferrable in certain installation scenarios.
Euro-style gutters are a type of half-round gutter, which is seamless and held in place with half-round hangers. Some homeowners choose this style because they prefer aesthetics, but they’re also a good choice for extreme conditions.
K-style gutters are called such because they resemble a K when viewed from the side. They’ve become popular in the last 50 years because they’re attractive but also because they allow for a substantial amount of water.
Fascia gutters are a kind of seamless gutter that must be custom made for a home since they are installed directly on the fascia boards. These gutters provide great curb appeal but are also large and allow for substantial water.
Half-round gutters have an open, trough-like shape. They were quite popular prior to the 1960s but have become increasingly less popular since they are prone to clogs and do not sit flush against the fascia and require brackets.
