Box Style Gutter
Box style gutters are built with a simple design emphasizing function over aesthetics. Box style gutters are seamless, and can be made seamless in custom shapes and sizes.
This style of gutter is named “K” because when look at them from the side, their shape resembles the letter K. They are available in 5 to 8 inch sizes. The most common size used for homes are five and six inch. K style gutters are made with steel, galvalume, copper, vinyl, and most often aluminum.
