Residential gutters are an essential component of any home, playing a crucial role in protecting the roof, walls, and foundation from water damage. With so many different types of gutters available, it can be overwhelming to choose the right one for your home, but at Precision Gutters & Roofing, we offer lots of options that can match your home’s needs and aesthetic.

Traditional Gutters

Traditional gutters are constructed from sections of aluminum or vinyl and joined together to form the full length of the gutter system. This design makes them the cheapest option for gutter systems and this makes them very popular, but they aren’t the best choice.

They have a high likelihood of leaks because the seams between the sections can come apart over time. They are also less durable and more susceptible to damage from heavy rainfall or other weather events. Additionally, they are more prone to clogging, as debris can collect in the seams and corners, making maintenance harder and requiring a lot more maintenance over time, which erases their initial cost savings.

Seamless Gutters

Seamless gutters are what we install and recommend. These gutters are cut from a single piece of metal, which is specifically measured to fit the length of a home. This design eliminates the need for seams, reducing the risk of leaks and making them a popular choice among homeowners. The main advantages of seamless gutters are low maintenance requirements and their sleek, polished look that adds to the aesthetic appeal of a home.

The absence of seams also makes these gutters more durable, increasing their resistance to heavy rainfall and wind damage. At Precision Gutters & Roofing, we custom-cut your seamless gutters to fit your home perfectly. We also offer many colors so you can perfectly match your aesthetic.

Gutter Shapes


K-style gutters get their name from their “K” shape and are widely used because of their sleek design and affordability. K-style gutters do tend to clog more easily because the “K” shape of the gutter makes it difficult to remove debris, leading to water overflow. This problem can be overcome with gutter guards, however, which we recommend and can install.

Another potential issue with K-style gutters is that they may overflow easily with too much water, so for some very large roofs or roofs that are steeply pitched, they might not be the right choice.

Half-Round Gutters

Half-round gutters get their name from their shape, which is half the size of a full circle. They have a classic, traditional look that is ideal for older homes. One of the main benefits of half-round gutters is their durability. They are typically very resistant to damage, don’t clog easily, and are easy to clean.

Some homeowners may not find this style as visually appealing as K-style gutters, though, and their curved design may not fit the aesthetic of every home.
