Reverse Bead Half-Round gutters in aluminum offer a distinctive appearance and traditional style at an affordable cost. As the most popular metal for gutters, aluminum is a low cost, easily maintained solution for today's homes. It does not rust and has a life expectancy of approximately 30 years. Aluminum gutters are very light and have a wide range of available color options along with downspouts and accessories to match. K&M also supplies gutter guards / screens for all gutter profiles we offer along with all accessories needed for your gutter system. Custom lengths, sizes and heavier gauges may be available. Please contact us for pricing.
Joining gutter lengths / seams
To put 2 lengths of gutter together, simply cut back the front bead / lip of the gutter 1" or more depending on your needs. Do the same for the hem in the back if present. Cut where needed to create tabs. Overlap the 2 lengths of the gutter and join them by soldering if possible, or with zip screws / rivets and sealer if not. Coupling pieces can be custom manufactured if needed. Keep in mind that using a coupling piece like a cover plate gives the appearance of 2 seams. Splice plates can also be manufactured. Unlike cover plates, these sit on the inside of the gutter, giving the appearance of one seam, like overlapping 2 gutter lengths.

This limits the lengths to 19.5' and not 20' or "infinite lengths". 5" and 6" gutters are roll formed from coil stock, and unlike European bead gutters these can be made to any feasible length.
