K style gutters, also called ogee rain gutters are probably the most commonly installed rain gutters. K style gutters are ideal for applications where a flat fascia has been installed but can also be applied with a hanging style gutter strap to accommodate a canted (slanted) fascia or a fascia with a crown molding installed.
K style gutters typically range in size from 4″ to 8″. (To determine a gutters size take a measurement of the opening across the top.) The most common size for a residential K style gutter is 5″ although 6″ K style gutter is becoming more and more popular as today’s modern roof lines require gutter that will handle a higher capacity of water.
As far as materials go, the most popular are. .032 aluminum is the most widely used for its lightweight, many colors, and ease of manufacture. Pre-finished galvanized steel is known for its strength and copper for its beauty and longevity.
