Choosing the Right Gutter Style for Your Home

Gutter Styles

Posted on by

Gutter systems come in many different styles and shapes, so you have many options when choosing the correct gutter system for your New Jersey home. Up and Above Contractors will consult with you and assess your home’s roof to decide which gutter style fits your style, budget, and needs. Here are some of the gutter styles that Up and Above is able to provide:

  • 5- inch– Are more common on residential homes and small businesses. This size rain gutter will handle just about any amount of water that drains off smaller roofs. 5 inch gutters are more commonly paired with 2×3 inch down spouts, however, the larger 3”x4” down spouts can be added in areas that require more water drainage.
  • 6-inch– Are commonly used on larger homes, commercial buildings, garages, and pole sheds. Larger roofs that drain large amounts of water need a gutter system that can catch and drain the rain water more quickly. 6 inch gutters are paired with 3×4 inch down spouts. The larger gutters and spouts will displace large amounts of water quickly, which makes it a great system for large roof spans.
  • Copper– Is sustainable, aesthetically pleasing, and low maintenance. Due to its natural resistance to corrosion, gutters made from copper are extremely durable under any conditions and will never have problems with underside corrosive decay like many other metal constructed products.
  • Half-round- Is a style of gutter that provides proper drainage of water from your roof. Made from several different materials, like copper and other metals. Half-round is a popular choice for residential homes because of its unique and beautiful look, as well as its water draining ability.
