The K-Guard Gutter System Is The Best Your Home Can Get

By | Gutter Maintenance

gutter guard shutterstock_284533004-1024x683 Is your gutter system doing its job as it’s supposed to?  Technology has come a long way from traditional open-topped gutters, but many are still dealing with their legacy — clogged gutters, water-stained facades, rotting fascia boards and more seriously, damage to property foundations and roofs.  Add to the equation risky, seasonal ladder-climbing for maintenance, and open-topped gutters are no longer the best solution for protecting your home.

Savvy property owners know that inefficient gutter systems are hostile opponents to a home’s value and seek to have them updated as soon as they realize they’re not performing as optimally as they should.  A good leaf gutter system channels rainwater and debris away from properties, protecting the foundation and surrounding areas from extensive damage while eliminating the need for regular upkeep.

The best gutter system

There are many good gutter systems on the market, but none quite match up to K-Guard’s Gutter Guards.  With over 35 million feet of gutter guard systems installed across 37 states since 1998, K-Guard has an unprecedented reputation for quality and offers a lifetime no-clog warranty.


Unlike competitor gutter systems, K-Guard provides a whole host of benefits to your home resulting from over two decades of fieldwork and ground-breaking patents, including ultra-strength hangers and wider-fitting gutters.

Designed as a complete system comprising of a gutter, hood, and downspouts, K-Guard is the ultimate, robust solution for gutters that stand the test of time and extreme weather.

How does K-Guard compare to other systems?

gutter guard shutterstock_306643763-1024x683

To illustrate the value K-Guard gutter guards provide against other competitors, here are a few key differences:

  • Larger than others:  K-Guard 5-inch gutters are a full inch larger than traditional gutters, giving your home greater capacity for water drainage while flushing out minor debris quickly and easily.
  • The whole package: K-Guard gutter systems replace your gutters as a whole.  While some competitors are designed to fit onto existing gutters, K-Guard’s entire gutter and hood solution are engineered to work together for optimum performance and durability.
  • No liability: Worried about roof liability?  Unlike most gutter systems, K-Guard attaches to fascia boards and rafter tails instead of roof shingles, so you can rest assured your roof warranty won’t be affected if other unrelated issues arise.
  • Two drainage channels:  There are 2 ways for water to go into K-Guard gutters and flush away quickly and efficiently, unlike regular gutters that send windblown water up under roof shingles.
  • No need to clean: Regular, open-topped gutters are a hassle as they require seasonal maintenance, which often involves dangerous ladder climbing.  K-Guard Gutter Guards are designed and patented to never need any cleaning inside the gutter. Once installed, you don’t have to worry about any upkeep at all.
  • Custom fit:  Competitor products are usually designed to go on existing gutters, whereas K-Guard gutter systems are engineered to fit properly on your home without obstructing the roof or roof line.  They are also available in a variety of colors to compliment the appearance of your home, and feature a smooth curved design, in contrast to the sharp corners and vertical faces of competitor systems.
  • Unlimited lifespan: K-Guard System’s gutter and hood is made of non-corrodible, heavy-duty aluminum that stands the test of time and adverse weather conditions, unlike other gutter systems that need intermittent maintenance or repairs. K-Guard’s innovative, patented, high-strength hanger design ensures that your gutter system never sags or droops, no matter the external conditions.
  • Free installation: K-Guard doesn’t expect you to know the ins and outs of gutter installations.  Included in the price of a K-Guard gutter system, contractors will come to your property with specialized equipment and install for you.  With over 35 million feet of gutter systems installed since 1998, your home is in good hands with K-Guard.

Lifetime protection for your home

In the current economy where almost nothing is built to last, the K-Guard gutter guard system comes as a complete contrast.  Built with longevity and durability in mind, you may never need to replace or maintain your gutters once they’ve been installed — because let’s face it, nobody wants to think about gutters more than once in their lives.

K-Guard gutter systems need only one day to be professionally installed on your property.  That’s one price, one day and one solution for an entire lifetime of protection. Not many competitors can boast the same or have quite the same level of engineering expertise and experience.  You can also choose from a variety of colors that will blend in best with your home, giving you gutters that are complementary as well as functional.

Ultimately, the choice you make for your gutters is a choice you make for your home’s future, and for your pocket.  There are cheaper options out there, but how long before the price of regular cleaning and inconvenient repairs catch up with a one-off investment that’ll see your home protected for life?  For many, the choice is obvious. Save yourself time, money and headaches, and install your K-Guard gutter guard system today for lasting peace of mind.

April Showers and Your Gutters

By | Gutter, Gutter Maintenance, Homeowners

Spring has sprung and the rain has come. With this rain, your gutters are going to be doing plenty of work directing the rain into good locations that don’t cause erosion to your foundation. However, since Winter stripped all the tree of their leaves your gutters might be clogged up with a bunch of leaflets and potentially other gunk. If the water can’t properly flow then the gutters will overflow and start to cause damage in the future. This is a major issue that a lot of people are unaware of so what can you do to prepare?gutter guard DSC07352-1-1024x768

What’s The Big Deal?

“It’s just water!” Water created the grand canyon and it’ll definitely erode parts of your foundation if you leave it free to roam. It can even damage your roof if the gutters are overflowing and damage your driveway. If you are one of the few who proactively get on a ladder and clean out their gutters then you’re putting yourself at risk more often then you need to. The big deal is the safety of yourself, your home and your wallet.

Here are some of the top problems people report when it comes to their gutters are:

Leaks. These can spring up randomly due to loose screws or separation from the home. This can cause major damage later on to your foundation if you don’t solve it now.

Gutter Joint Separation. These are typically caused by the weight of a clog inside a drain. Typically glue and chalk aren’t strong enough to hold the joint together so dealing with the clogs source is the best solution.

Improper Slope. If your gutters aren’t pointed towards a good drainage area then this can cause erosion to the landscape of the home.

Ice Dams. These are particularly popular if you have clogged drains. The water tends to sit there and if the weather permits, it will freeze and cause a lot of problems later on when the snow on your house is melting but not draining where you want it to go. Snow can do major damages!

Gutter Gardens. If gutters are filled with debris, seeds, and bird droppings, this combination can turn into plants growing in the gutter system. If your home has access to sunlight with plenty of rain, you’ll have your very own gutter garden with zero effort on your part.

As you can see a lot of the issues are due to clogged gutters, so what’s the solution? Gutter guards work wonders in protecting your gutters from most of these issues.

What Are Gutter Guards?

They, well, guard your gutters and protect them from becoming clogged or damaged. They work by fitting on top of your existing gutters and only letting in water. However, the K-Guard gutter system completely replaces your existing gutters with much more durable gutters that have a greater water compacity.

Tips for Selling K-Guard Gutters to New Homeowners

By | General, Gutter, Tips

K-Guard gutters have finally solved an age-old problem: how do you keep leaves out of gutters? Cleaning out the gutters used to be an annual tradition (if not more frequently) for many homeowners. Now, however, homeowners can use patented K-Guard gutters that will prevent most leaves from getting in the gutter in the first place.

Our gutters are equipped with a hood system that will prevent most leaves from entering the gutter. This prevents jams and reduces the need to clean the gutters. K-Guard gutters are made of very high-quality aluminum and are designed to last for ages. In terms of quality and value, it’s hard to beat K-Guard.gutter guard shutterstock_623621927-1-1024x683

Of course, some customers are going to have some questions and concerns. Let’s review some tips for selling gutters to potential customers.

Why Are K-Guard Gutters Better Than Traditional Gutters?

The first question a new homeowner will likely ask you is why they should bother with K-Guard gutters. Traditional gutters have been around for years, aren’t they good enough? The answer, quite simply, is no.

Once a traditional gutter is clogged with leaves, it may not be able to effectively drain water. Over time, poor drainage could result in damage to a homeowner’s property. Further, the leaves in the gutter will eventually rot, which can produce an awful stench.

Homeowners will either have to get the ladder out and clean the gutters themselves or hire someone to do it. Hiring someone can get quite expensive. Meanwhile, when homeowners clean gutters themselves, they are going to spend a lot of time carrying out an unpleasant task. Worse yet, there’s always the risk of a slip or fall.

Do K-Guard Gutters Actually Keep Leaves Out?

Yes. Our patented K-Guard gutters actually keep leaves out. Clogging and other issues rarely occur. K-Guard gutters use a specially designed system consisting of a hood, gutter, downspouts and the patented K-Guard hangers.

New homeowners don’t have to take our word for it. Hundreds of happy customers can testify that our K-Guard gutters work year in and year out. We recommend showing skeptical customers our product reviews. Often, other happy customers make the best salespeople.

Are K-Guard Gutters Only For New Homes?

No. While we recommend installing K-Guard gutters from the get-go, existing homes can be refitted with our system. K-Guard has helped both new and existing homeowners.

What If Customers Are Worried About Longevity?

Eventually, all gutters have to be replaced. However, homeowners can rest assured that K-Guard gutters will last a long time. First, we use a heavy-duty aluminum that will resist corrosion. Lesser gutter manufacturers use lesser aluminum that won’t hold up to the elements.

Second, our patented K-Guard Hangers are made out of durable, long-lasting all-weather polymers that can resist just about anything nature throws at them. These hangers can also support the weight of the entire system, ensuring that it retains its shape.

New homeowners will be adding value to their home by using high-quality, long-lasting K-Guard gutters. They’ll be able to rest easy, knowing that they likely won’t have to replace their gutters in the near future.

What if Customers Are Worried About the Aesthetics?

Many new homeowners rightly obsess over aesthetics. K-Guard gutters look a bit different from traditional gutters. If anything, however, they look better. For one, there won’t be rotting leaves hanging out of K-Guard gutters. Further, homeowners can select a wide range of colors. Also, K-Guard gutters can be fitted to just about any roof line.

gutter guard img_1218671385_612-2 What If Customers Want to Go With the Cheapest Option?

K-Guard gutters are a bit more expensive than the lowest cost gutters. However, the high-quality aluminum and patented K-Guard Hangers mean our gutters will last for years. Customers who buy cheap gutters may quickly find themselves having to uninstall and reinstall new gutters.

Then there are the cleaning costs. Unless the homeowner cleans their gutters themselves, they’re going to have to pay someone to do it. Cleaning gutters is no one’s idea of a dream job, so homeowners may have to pay quite a bit.

What If My Customers Want to Install Hood Systems on Their Existing Gutters?

Does your customer already have gutters installed? Some homeowners try to take a short-cut: they install hoods on existing gutter systems. Unfortunately, this often turns out poorly. Our 5-inch gutter system offers better drainage than the 3 and 4-inch gutters many people have. Further, the hoods rarely fit properly, leading to sub-optimal performance.

Not only that, but the hoods are often a different color than the gutters. This can lead to poor aesthetics. Ultimately, these ramshackle systems look clunky and out of place, something you’d never say about K-Guard gutters.

Do You Have Any Materials I Can Provide to Customers?

Yes! You can refer customers to Kguard.com where they can learn more about our patented system. Customers can also watch an explainer video that will outline our gutter system works. Further, we can sell you brochures and door hangers at cost. Just get in touch!

The Importance of Keeping Gutters Clean and How K-Guard Can Help

By | Gutter Maintenance

It is awfully easy to forget about your home’s gutters. After all, these pathways are out of sight so they tend to be out of mind until something goes wrong. If you neglect your gutters long enough they will eventually clog, creating the potential for leaks and other problems that can exhaust your time, patience and money. gutter guard kguard-blog-shutterstock_3_11_19-1024x683

Why Clean Gutters are So Important

Maintaining clean gutters is important throughout the year because when the unexpected storm arrives you can bask in the comfort of knowing your home is protected and will not require expensive repairs. Strong winds can blow leaves, tree limbs, litter, and other debris onto the roof, clogging the gutters. Furthermore, snow and ice can accumulate in gutters to the point that water cannot pass through to the downspout and reach the ground. Such a clog will cause the water to pool, putting the gutter’s integrity at risk and jeopardizing the well-being of your home structures and landscaping below.  

A broken gutter or an otherwise-compromised roof stemming from gutter neglect can consume your money and time. A clogged gutter may cause water to pool, become that much heavier and create a mess along the perimeter of your roof. Also, an ill-equipped gutter system requires the attention of a repair specialist. This specialist’s time will cost you money, even if the repair project is minor. Furthermore, new gutters cost money. You have better things to do with your time than get quotes for gutter inspections and repairs. It is possible to avoid this scenario by being proactive and adding the K-Guard system to your home.

Prevent Ice Dam Nightmares

If you have not had an ice dam form in your gutters, you have had good fortune.  It is only a matter of time until unprotected gutters end up with an ice dam. If anything clogs the gutters, be it twigs, leaves or another form of interference, water will become trapped within the gutters.  In the winter months, this water can freeze, creating an ice dam. The gutters might even begin to sag as the trapped ice and debris continues to accumulate and increase in weight. The worst case scenario is a gutter falling on a person or vehicle.  

Opt for K-Guard and you won’t have to worry about ice dams.  K-Guard stops clogs from forming to start with, ensuring ice does not have a chance to collect and threaten the integrity of your gutters and roof.  This way, you won’t have to reach out to the ice dam specialists to perform an emergency clearing. Take a moment to consider all of the money, time and frustration you will save by preventing the formation of ice dams in the first place.   

K-Guard to the Rescue

The K-Guard system is designed to prevent leaves from finding their way into your home’s gutters.  This is the protection your home needs to retain its structural integrity and curb appeal. Here’s how the system works: K-Guard is made of four primary components: the K-Guard hangers, the gutter, the hood, and downspouts. Water moves right along the hood’s curve, traveling to the gutter. Leaves and other debris are blocked off from entering. The gutters are a spacious 5-inches, ensuring they can handle more rainwater and other sources of moisture than other supposed leaf-prevention gutter guard solutions.

Let K-Guard Do the Work for You

The K-Guard Leaf Free Gutter System is also appealing because it is a safe means of gutter and home protection.  There is no reason for you to risk injury attempting to clean out gutters. The K-Guard system prevents leaves from building up in the gutters in the first place so no one has to climb on a ladder in an attempt to clean out these cramped pathways.  

Put your faith in K-Guard and you won’t be disappointed.  K-Guard is comprised of heavy-duty aluminum that will not corrode even with ongoing inclement weather.  The system is centered on the unique K-Guard hangers. These high-strength hangers are built with all-weather polymers positioned every two feet within the gutter.  These polymers support the hood, ensuring the gutter retains its form and functionality so water does not compromise your living or working space.

K-Guard downspouts are intentionally over-sized at three inches by four inches to allow water to flush out along with any other rubble that infiltrated the system.  The end result of the K-guard system is a robust line of defense against leaves, debris and other threats to your home’s structure, siding and the roof. Even if you add the K-Guard system, you shouldgutter guard kguard-blog-shutterstock2_3_11-19-1024x683 still clear out your gutters at the start of the fall and winter.  Don’t forget to give your home’s gutters a thorough clean after the winter ends just to make sure any debris that accumulated doesn’t pose a threat as we transition to the spring.

Why should you make Getting K-Guard Gutter System your New Year’s resolution?

By | General

A New Year’s resolution is a way to make a positive change. Finding the right resolution can be tricky. It needs to be achievable, financially sound, and contribute to your well-being. If you are looking for a resolution that will add value and safety to your life and home, upgrading to a K-Guard gutter system is a great place to start.

Upgrading to K-Guard is achievable because the gutter systems are versatile, and can be installed and customized for every home. These systems are a financially sound investment and can save you a lot of time and hours of manual labor for years to come. They will also help you protect one of your biggest financial investments- your home.

Why install a K-Guard system in the new year?gutter guard shutterstock_24033358-1-1024x680

When you make the decision to upgrade to K-Guard, you are making an investment into the value and safety of your home. Gutter systems are an essential part of any building. They guide runoff and water away from the structure of your house. Without gutters, this water can pool and collect, leading to flooding and structural issues. Standard gutter systems safely guide water away from the house, but unfortunately, are prone to flooding and clogging.

At K-Guard, we use our patterned gutter technology to bring you gutter systems that are covered. What does this mean? Essentially, water can get into your gutter but leaves, sticks, and debris cannot. This means that your gutters will continue to do their job of guiding water away from your home, but will not collect any unwanted items that you will have to manually remove later.

How will K-Guard gutters save me money in the new year?

How many hours do you spend on your roof clearing out your gutters? If you are not able to do do this daunting task yourself, how much are you paying for a third party to come in and do it? Time is money, and whether you are spending your time or your hard earned cash maintaining your gutter systems, the cost is too high.

K-Guard gutters will not only save you the time and manpower of physically cleaning out your gutter system, but they can also potentially save you the cost of damages to your home. A system that drains water away from your home means you will not have to spend money on repairs. Your exterior paint will be preserved. Your foundation won’t slowly erode. Your siding will not rot. This means you have to paint your house less often, which also saves money. And best of all, your foundation will not have to be repaired. Additionally, should you choose to relocate, K-Guard gutters are a great selling point for buyers looking to purchase a new home!

How do K-Guard gutters benefit my home?

A gutter system that prevents leaves from clogging the flow of water means the moisture stays away from your house’s siding and foundation. Moisture eats away at the side of your home, whether made of wood, masonry, or plastic siding. Moisture also eats away at paint. A K-Guard system keeps the weather at bay—for this year and many to come!

In the new year, how does a K-Guard Gutter System improve safety?

Cleaning out your gutters means pulling out a ladder and physically getting onto your roof. This can be incredibly dangerous. Did you know that in the U.S., over 500,000 people have ladder-related accidents every year? Falling off of your roof or ladder can be incredibly painful, and even deadly. Why put your life on the line when you can make a one-time investment that will keep your home safe and keep you off the roof?

Protecting Your Gutters in the Winter

By | General

A solid, dependable gutter system is essential for protecting your home. While you may not be thinking about your gutters very much in the wintertime, gutter maintenance during the cold season is crucial for keeping the system functioning properly. Here are some of the best ways that you can protect your gutters this winter season:

Clean Them Outgutter guard shutterstock_158055701-1024x683

You’re likely used to cleaning out your gutters in the fall when leaves pile up and can cause clogs and other issues, but you may not realize that you need to clean them in the wintertime as well. When it’s cold, snow often compacts and does not melt, which puts additional weight and strain on your gutter system. When this snow builds up too much and gets too heavy, it can actually cause your gutters to break away from your home. It is important to keep an eye on your gutters and make sure that they are not being overloaded by snow and debris.

Trim Your Branches

One of the best ways to keep your gutters clean is to stop debris at the source. Take some extra time to trim the branches of the trees around your yard to prevent leaves, twigs, and dirt from getting into your gutters in the first place. Making sure that the trees in your yard are trimmed and groomed isn’t just a good idea in the winter time, but is a habit you should practice throughout the whole year.

Get Them Realigned

Over time, through normal wear and tear, your gutter system may become misaligned. If your gutters are misaligned and stick out at an odd angle, water will not be diverted from your home as effectively as it should be, and your structure may suffer the consequences. With misaligned gutters, water is likely to pool around the base of your home, which can hurt your foundation, driveway, and lawn. If you believe that your gutters are misaligned, it may be time to call in the professionals. Attempting to align your gutters on your own may do more harm than good.  

Do a Careful Inspection

It is important to carefully inspect your gutter system for damage. Make sure that there are no leaks and that your system is firmly attached to your home. Do a thorough examination of your house, looking for damage to your siding, as this can be a sign of a leaky gutter. It’s also important to look at your downspouts and diverters to make sure they are working correctly. If you see any issues with your gutters, call a professional right away. Your gutter system is no place to cut corners. A solid, working gutter system can save you lots of time and money from repairing unnecessary damages to your home down the road.

Call the Professionals

If you are concerned about your gutters or are worried that your system is not prepared for the winter, err on the side of caution and contact the professionals. A professional maintenance man will be able to thoroughly clean your system and will know how to carefully inspect your gutters to make sure they are up to speed and functioning properly.

Do I Need Gutters if I Live in a Dry Climate?

By | Gutter

If you live in a dry climate, it can be hard to understand why gutters are an important part of your home. After all, no rainfall no problem right? Wrong! Gutters do a lot to protect your property. Whether you get one or one hundred inches of rainfall per year, it is important to have a functioning gutter system.

Flood Preventiongutter guard unnamed-1024x682

When it rains, the soil around your home becomes saturated with water. A good gutter system directs this rainfall away from your home, but without one, the saturated soil can leak into your home and flood your basement. While one flood may not seem like too much of a nuisance, this can become a serious problem over time. With more and more flooding, the walls of your basement can begin to crack and push inward.

In addition to flooding, this moisture can also leak into your foundation and cause mold to grow. Mold growth in a home can cause problems for the structure for the house and is a health hazard for its residents.

Erosion Prevention

Gutters do more than just protect your house, they also prevent erosion in your yard. Without gutters, rainfall can cause the soil in your yard to be washed away every time it rains. Again, while your yard will not totally erode from one rainstorm, over time this can lead to significant amounts of soil loss and damage to your area.

Erosion is more than just a cosmetic issue. It can also lead to problems with your foundation. Uneven flooring, cracks in the chimneys and walls can all appear as a result of erosion.

Damage to Your Garden

Along with erosion, your plants and gardening will suffer if you do not install gutters. Flowers and plants surrounding the perimeter of the house is a staple of landscaping decoration. Gutters help to mitigate how much rain these plants get, especially in heavy rainfall.

Without a gutter system, these plants can drown or be washed away. Pools of water will also collect around your plants and fail to dry due to the soil saturation that happens during a rainstorm. This can lead to your plants getting too much water and even mold growth.

If you have a green thumb or a beautiful front yard, protect it by installing a quality gutter system.

Siding Damage

Rainwater isn’t pure, drinking water. It is often contaminated with things like dirt, leaves, and collects specks of asphalt as it trickles down your home. When this rainwater flows directly onto your house and is not intercepted by a gutter system, it can make your home look old and run down.

Aside from taking away from your structures aesthetic appeal, it can also begin to rot the siding of your home. This is particularly true if you live in a wooden house. Rotting siding is unsightly as well as dangerous. Pests and rodents make homes in the rot which can lead to infestations in your home.

Curb Appeal

Overall, there are many reasons as to why a gutter system is a crucial part of yogutter guard shutterstock_581756689-1024x683 ur home. Beyond the technical problems that rainfall can cause, gutters also help to protect and preserve your curb appeal. They keep your yard intact, stop the possibility of erosion, and keep your siding looking fresh and clean.

Curb appeal is the way your home looks from a street view. While this may sound tedious, curb appeal comes in handy when you are trying to sell your home. A potential buyer does not want to see moldy siding and a yard that is half worn away. A gutter system will help protect your curb appeal and keep your home and yard looking beautiful and well kept for years to come.

Gutter Cleaning Tips For Fall

By | General

Fall is just around the corner, and for those of you without K-Guard gutters, that means that it is time to get started on yet another round of seasonal gutter maintenance.

Ideally, your gutters should be cleaned at least twice a year, but you may need to clean them more if you have trees within 10 to 20 feet of the exterior walls and roof. Although it might be tempting to procrastinate on this, doing so puts your house at risk for serious water damage. Since time is of the essence, use these gutter cleaning tips to get rooftop drainage systems ready for fall.

Gutter cleaning requires potentially dangerous activities such as climbing on a ladder and getting up on the roof. If possible, work with a partner. Even if all they do is hold the ladder still, you have that extra bit of a safety net. Many people have trouble with heights, and having someone there to ensure your safety can make the whole process smoother and less nerve-wracking.

Practice Ladder Safety

Gutter cleaning is not for people who are afraid of heights, and a sturdy ladder is one of your most important tools. Start by choosing a ladder that has non-skid bottoms on the legs so that it does not slip. Also, you should always inspect your ladder for defects before you begin to climb. As you choose one, keep in mind that it may need to be moved multiple times as you work around the perimeter of the roof. Look for a sturdy, reliable ladder that is also easily portable.

Dress For the Job

As with any household maintenance task, you need to wear the appropriate clothing and safety gear. Be sure to find a quality pair of gloves that are waterproof and made from a scratch-resistant material to protect your hands from cuts. Then, put on a pair of goggles to protect your eyes from potential splashes from bacteria-laden clogs as you spray out the gutters. You should also wear a comfortable pair of rubber-soled shoes to reduce your chances of slipping off of the ladder or roof.

Remove All of the Debris From Your Roof

Cleaning out the gutters is pointless if you leave behind leaves and dirt on the roof. This debris can pile up and fall into your gutters the next time it rains or snows. Therefore, you should begin the cleaning process by using a broom to sweep away any debris that is not in the gutters. As you do, try to sweep hard enough to push the leaves over the gutter system. Then, you can rake them from the ground later or gather them in a bag.

Pull Out Big Clogs By Hand

Once you’ve removed the surface debris from the roof, you are ready to begin cleaning the actual gutters. You can use a special scooper to remove large chunks of debris from the gutter, or you can use your gloved hand. As you remove the clogs, put them into a bucket or other type of container so that you have an easier time cleaning up afterward. You should also be cautious as you clean these clogs because they often havens for rodents, birds, and insects that use the materials for nests.

Spray Out the Gutters

Clearing the clogs out by hand first helps to make sure that you do not inadvertently spray large chunks of debris down the gutters and into the downspouts. Therefore, you must make sure that all of the big debris is completely clear before you move to this step. To spray out the gutters, you can use a power washing tool, or you can just grab your pressure sprayer that attaches to the garden hose.

Keep an Eye Out For Damage

The process of cleaning out the gutters makes it possible for you to get a closer look at the roof and gutter system. Keep an eye out for signs of damage that need closer attention such as cracks between the seams of older gutter systems or areas where the gutters have become detached from the roof. You might also spot signs of a malfunctioning gutter system while you are cleaning them out such as seeing water stains from spillovers caused by clogs or pooling water where it should naturally flow down.

After the main gutters are clean, your final step is to make sure that there are not any clogs in the downspout. If you’ve seen large amounts of debris in the gutters, then you can easily assume that it has worked its way to the downspout as well. Typically, you can give it a good tap or two to get clogs to fall down with the force of gravity. However, more serious clogs may require you to take apart the downspout and use special tools to get them out.

Upgrade to K-Guard

Cleaning out gutters is hazardous and exhausting work, and older gutters may require you to clean them out more often due to issues such as bends in the seam that collect more debris. Fortunately, K-Guard leaf free gutter systems are an option that allows you to ditch this annoying part of your fall home maintenance routine. These patented systems have special covers that keep leaves out of the gutters while allowing the rain to flow into specially-designed slots that wash it down the downspouts so that clogs become a thing of the past.

Why Are Gutters an Important Part of Your Home?

By | Gutter

To properly maintain your home, a good gutter system is an absolute must. Gutters work by redirecting water away from your property and are essential to the safety of your home’s foundation.

Why Does Your Home Need Gutters?gutter guard rain-432770_1920-1024x653

Regardless of location, every home should be equipped with gutters. Gutters collect runoff rain from the roof and guide it away from the foundation. If you do not have gutters, or if they get clogged, water can start to overflow around your property. This overflow tends to pool, causing flooding and other issues. If you do not have a gutter system, this pooling can happen any time it rains.

Gutters have other benefits as well. They help to stabilize the soil around a home, preventing issues with the building as well as preserving a home’s landscaping and erosion. With properly installed gutters, you can avoid siding damage along with stained brick and stonework. Their presence can also lessen sidewalk settling and cracking while protecting exterior doors.

Taking Care of Your Home’s Gutters

A big inconvenience for many people is the time it takes to maintain a gutter system. To make sure that they’re working properly, you must be vigilant about cleaning your gutters and checking for breaks or cracks. Many people don’t give them proper maintenance as frequently as they require. If you wait to clean your gutters until they’re filled with leaves and other debris, you will likely face bad repercussions.

When gutters become clogged, they dam up, causing spillage and overflow. If the clog is severe enough, they can start to leak. The still water sitting in a clogged gutter can become a breeding ground for mosquitoes and other pests that you do not want around your property.

How Often Should You Clean Your Gutters?

How often you should change your gutters depends on your style of home and the climate around you. There are a lot of things to consider; are there trees nearby? How often does it rain in your area? A general rule is that homes with trees that come within about 10 feet of the roofline should have their gutters cleaned out at least twice a year. If your area is especially tree heavy, then your gutters may need to be cleaned out several times just during the fall season alone.

When it comes to home style, you’ll need to assess the slope of your roof. If your home features a roof with a low slope, then you should plan to clean your gutters more often.

A common gutter myth is that homes without trees don’t require gutter cleaning. This is not true because wind, rain, and snow can still fill a gutter with debris. People who have homes with asphalt shingles will need to clean their gutters more frequently because this type of roof covering loses granules, which can fall into the gutter system.
