There are number of gutter styles/shapes called profiles but the most common ones are:
K Style Gutters
The most popular type of gutters used today are 5 inch aluminum K-style.They are NOT called K style because they are shaped like the letter K. They are called K-style simply because in the Sheet metal and air conditioning contractors national association alphabetical listing of the twelve most common gutter types, the letter K is number eleven. K-style gutters are the most popular gutter shape or profile. Because of their decorative crown molding appearance, K-style gutters are also called ogee gutters.
Fascia gutters are generally used on homes where fascia boards have not been installed over the rafter tails. The smooth face of the fascia gutters perform the function of the fascia boards, hiding the edge of the rafter tails from view. Fascia gutters are most commonly found in the Western part of the United States.
Half Round Gutters
A half round gutter is just as the name implies; it is essentially a half circle, with the open half facing the roof. Half round gutters do not work very well. They are about half as deep as the K-5 gutter, so the slightest leveling problem or debris in the gutter will cause it to over flow. Because they don’t have a flat back, the gutter hangers for them have to be under the gutter to hold it up, instead of using hidden hangers.
European gutter systems made from natural weathering metals like copper have been used for centuries to fabricate gutters and downspouts. European gutters are usually distinguished by having a gutter bead that turns to the outside versus to the inside of the gutter and are also typically a half round gutter style.
