A common question asked by clients of Dynamic Gutters & Exteriors Ltd. is what gutter styles do we offer – and what gutter profiles do we offer? Simply answered – we offer a wide arrangement of gutter styles and profiles – in a wide variety of gutter colours – as supplied to us by Gentek.
The 3 most common gutter profiles offered in the Lower Mailand – and Vancouver – are Colonial, Crown Mould, and Half Round gutters.
Without a doubt – Colonial Gutters – also known as K-Style, or OG – are the most used gutter profile in Vancouver and the rest of the Lower Mainland. Maybe this is because Colonial gutter profiles – when looked at straight on – look just like the Crown Mouldings found on many indoor ceilings.
The second most popular gutter profile is Crown Mould – a Fascia Style gutter profile. Imagine taking a Colonial Profile – and straightening it out – and smoothing down the face – that’s what a Crown Mould gutter profile looks like. Fans of Crown Mould gutter profiles sometimes choose it because they believe the troughs hold more water – owing to the design being more boxy than curved. Crown Mould gutter profiles do also give the appearance of fascia board – which is why they are names “Fascia”.
Another popular gutter profile to talk about is Half Round – or Euro Style gutter profile. They look like a round pipe cut in half. Dynamic Gutters & Exteriors Ltd. offers Half Round in both Zinc and Copper. Often at times this profile is seen with a pricier metal such as Zinc and Copper – and that’s why the Half Round is a popular choice for high-end custom homes. One thing to note is that there is a differing school of thought as to the efficiency of Half Round gutter profiles. Some say they don’t hold as much as Colonial or Crown Mould gutter styles – while fans say that the water is directly directly to the bottom of the trough – aiding quick transport down the downpipes.
