Is it time for you to replace the old, battered gutter system on your home with something new and better? Getting started on choosing better gutter protection might seem overwhelming, but it can actually be quite easy. There are different gutter styles made to combat different problems.
OG (Old Gothic) gutters have a traditional yet charismatic profile, and go well on modern or traditional homes. They are available in many colors, and also with slots. The slots allow for overflow to go over the top of the gutter and not back into the roof.
Quad gutters are classically formed, and come in an array of different sizes. They are adaptable and fit well with traditional and modern homes.
VF gutters were made specifically with patios in mind. They have a square front, and a fold in the back to attach more easily to the waterproof roof cladding.
Half Round gutters are as the name implies, a half circle shaped gutter that is good at being mostly self-cleaning as there are no corners or hang-ups for debris to get stuck on. They can carry a good volume of water, as they are 150mm in diameter, and they are often used for modern homes or commercial buildings due to their excellent gutter protection. These gutters are good for increased carrying capacity, and for homes with deciduous trees around that drop a lot of debris.
VFC gutters have a square front made to hide the roof line, and have water overflow slots. They are used primarily on contemporary homes for their clean and modern appearance. The slots are great for allowing overflow water to go out through the gutter rather than back and into the house.
Smoothline gutters look similar to the Half Round, with a curved front and a flat back. They are mounted with internal brackets, making them easy to install and to maintain. These have better water carrying capacity than some other gutters.
The right gutter profile with the correct gutter protection will add to your home, and having them professionally installed will ease your mind when the next big storm heads your way.
