Put Your Ladder Away For Life With Our Closed Gutter System

By | Ladder Safety

closed gutter systemAlarming statistics from the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons tell us 500,000 people in the U.S. are treated for injuries stemming from ladder accidents each year. About 300 of those accidents prove to be fatal.

Older people are especially vulnerable to ladder accidents, and their injuries are often more severe.

It doesn’t have to be that way, though.

With K-Guard Leaf Free Gutter Guards, you’ll never again have to risk your life by climbing a ladder to clean your gutters.

Is using a ladder really that dangerous?

It sure is. In fact, because climbing a ladder may not seem like such a big deal, we are often lulled into a (very) false sense of security. The truth, though, is that a fall can happen in a flash.

Whether it’s using the wrong ladder for the job, incorrect placement of the ladder or using a ladder with worn or damaged parts, you’re literally putting your life at risk each and every time you step on that first rung.

Commonly reported injuries from ladder falls include:

  • Damages to the spine
  • Head trauma (concussions and other traumatic brain injuries)
  • Broken bones
  • Deep bruising

Since our bones become more fragile as we age, injuries sustained by older persons in ladder accidents are often far more severe than with other populations. Even a fall from a shortened height can lead to traumatic consequences in the blink of an eye. 

How does K-Guard prevent ladder falls?

That’s easy: we virtually eliminate your need for a ladder to clean your gutters. It’s as simple as that.

Here’s how it works.

The K-Guard system (the hood and the gutter) is attached to the existing fascia board just below your roof. (If there is no fascia board material at your home, we can add it.)

closed gutter systemThis does not negatively affect your roof at all. Rather, your roof is actually strengthened to withstand ice damming and blowback.

There’s a narrow opening between the hood and the gutter that allows rainwater – and rainwater only – to pass through onto the gutter before being guided to the downspouts.

Leaves, pine needles and other debris are prevented from finding their way into the gutter. 

With the K-Guard Leaf Free Gutter System, there’s literally no more worries about clogged gutters or concerns about damage to your home’s roof, foundation and siding.

Better still, there’s no need to use that ladder!

Why should I select K-Guard over other leafless systems?

There are many tangible differences between the K-Guard System and the “other guys.”

  • Increased ability to divert more rainwater. Most of the other leafless gutter systems are made for or use gutters barely wider than 3-4 inches. K-Guard gutters, though, provide you with a 5-inch-wide leaf-free gutter; there’s no water buildup.
  • No damage to your roof and home. The other systems typically attach just under your roof shingles, putting your roof at risk and possibly voiding any warranties you have. By attaching to the fascia board, the K-Guard System protects your roof and the structure of your home.
  • Better fit to the structure of your home. Because K-Guard doesn’t even touch your roof or roofline, it can be properly fitted specifically to your home. Other products are designed to be placed on top of your existing gutters — adding significant weight and posing structural damage to your roof and your home’s foundation.
  • No maintenance required. Because the narrow opening between the hood and gutter allows only water to pass through, K-Guard is an excellent example of a “set it and forget it” accessory for your home. There literally is no maintenance needed on your part. With the others, they’ll even admit you’ll need to regularly clear their systems. 
  • Water is kept from damaging your shingles. With K-Guard, there are two ways for water to flow into the gutter before being diverted to the downspouts. Due to a design flaw with the other systems, windblown water can easily find its way underneath your shingles. 
  • They’re visually appealing. K-Guard gutters have a smooth finish that resembles crown molding, and are available in a wide variety of colors. In fact, the colors of the hood and gutter are matched, so there’s more of a uniform appearance. The other systems merely attempt to match the color of your existing gutter – sometimes it works out, but it often doesn’t. Other systems also tend to be chunky and look out of place. 

How well does K-Guard handle icy and snowy conditions?

We have a healthy respect for Mother Nature. That’s why we designed and built K-Guard Systems to withstand practically any amount of snow or ice buildup as well as gusting wind. 

Because of the design of other systems, ice will continually freeze and thaw – which can eventually pry the gutters from your home. 

K-Guards, on the other hand, are designed for ice to form on the outside of the gutter, rather than inside. Because of this, thawed ice simply falls away instead of refreezing.

Which Gutter System is the Best?

By | Gutter Maintenance

gutter system

Not to toot our own horn, but we think the K-Guard Leaf-free Gutter Guard is the best gutter system in the marketplace today. Hands down. No contest. The competition is tough, but our K-Guard leaf-free system is tougher, so when you compare apples to apples, other systems just don’t measure up. 

We know there are plenty of choices when it comes to getting new gutters, that’s why we encourage you to learn all you can about the different gutter systems available. We’re so sure we have the best product on the market, we invite you to shop and compare.

Hood-style vs. leaf-free – which is better?

You may have heard about ‘hood’ gutters and wondered how a hood style system would compare to a leaf-free system. Hood systems are considered more of a temporary fix, while no-maintenance leaf-free systems are what most homeowners are looking for today.

Hood gutter guards may cost a little less, but there can be problems with installation and maintenance.

  • Installed under shingles or as single unit  – either secured under the first row of shingles on your roof, or as a single unit requiring the installation of all new gutters.
  • May require screwing into roof shingles – which could cause water damage and could void your roof warranty.
  • Installation method can cause water issues – runoff can damage landscaping or contribute to basement flooding or even foundation problems.
  • Seasonal maintenance is required – gutters will fill with debris and the hood will need to be removed to clean inside the gutter, either by the homeowner or by a professional.

Leaf-free systems offer efficiency and protection with zero installation or maintenance issues.

  • No damage to shingles – system attaches to fascia boards and rafter tails instead of roof shingles. Roof warranty won’t ever be affected.
  • Better drainage – drains water more effectively, channels rainwater and debris down and away from your property’s foundation for maximum protection.
  • No cleaning or declogging – no more climbing ladders or seasonal maintenance needed!

bad gutter systemDo your homework… check the K-Guard difference

Go ahead, google leaf-free gutter systems and you’ll see that most competitors tout the same basic features. K-Guard offers more of everything — more drainage, more strength, more durability, more performance – plus a no-clog lifetime warranty!

The K-Guard leaf-free gutter system offers you more:

  • Larger 5” size for better capacity and drainage – K-Guard 5-inch gutters are a full inch larger than traditional gutters and can hold 70 gallons per foot.
  • No gutter sag – the high-strength hanger design keeps its form no matter the external conditions.
  • High performance, patented design K-Guard gutter systems replace your gutters as a whole and are engineered to work together for optimum performance and durability. 
  • No harm to shingles or roof warranty – unlike most gutter systems, K-Guard attaches to fascia boards and rafter tails instead of roof shingles, so if any other unrelated issues arise you can rest assured your roof warranty won’t be affected. 
  • Two drainage channels instead of one – regular gutters only have a single drainage channel, which sometimes can’t prevent windblown water from going up under roof shingles. K-Guard gutter systems have two drainage channels that flush away water quickly and efficiently.
  • No cleaning or declogging needed – K-Guard Gutter Guards are designed and patented to never need any cleaning inside the gutter, unlike other systems that require seasonal declogging.
  • Good looking, custom-fit product while competitors’ gutter guards are designed to fit onto existing gutters, K-Guard gutter systems are engineered to attach to your home without obstructing the roof or roofline.  In contrast to the sharp corners and vertical faces of other gutters on the market, they also feature a smooth, curved design in a variety of colors to complement your home. 
  • Lifetime no-clog warranty – non-corrodible, heavy-duty aluminum K-Guard gutter systems never sag and are built to withstand adverse weather conditions. Innovative, patented, high-strength hanger design offers optimum performance and durability.

“AMAZING attention to all details. First class job. When you consider spending this kind of money and making an important investment, this is the place to go to. We are confident our roof will last and they will stand behind their work 100%. Our choice for roof work was based on the fantastic work they did on our gutters a couple of years back.”  John P.

Why Your Home Needs A Good Gutter System

By | Gutter Maintenance

good gutter systemWhen thinking about a good gutter system, perhaps the first thing that comes to mind is the expense.  While owning a home can be a real pleasure, the expenses can oftentimes quickly add up. From deciding which colors to paint your walls to the flowers you’ll plant in your garden, it can get pricey.  And then comes the whole other world of home maintenance problems — there are so many areas to ensure are properly maintained in order to avoid costly fixes down the road.

However, there could be a much less stressful way to deal with such issues.  Getting a good gutter system is the answer to many household woes and a preventative solution that could save you time, headaches and money in the long run. 

How do I know if my gutters are bad?

While traditional open-top gutter systems are the norm, they not only collect rainwater, but also leaves, dust and other debris that quickly clog and prevent effective water drainage.  Unless you’re always on top of seasonal gutter cleaning, clogging issues aren’t obvious until untold damage has occurred — usually manifesting in cases such as water-staining and rotting fascia boards.

What’s a good gutter system?

A good gutter system ensures that rainwater is effectively drained away from your property for maximum efficiency and protection. It should be able to do this entirely independently without needing constant care and maintenance.  With the incorporation of a gutter guard (a hood that covers the gutter) water flow is controlled and protects against windswept leaves and debris.

As well as eliminating the need for dangerous ladder-climbing chores, a good gutter system also increases the value of your property and makes it easier to sell in the future.

Which gutter system brand is best for my home?

The best gutter system brands provide a complete service, value for the money and the option extended the warranty to give you peace of mind for many years.  The gutters should be able to withstand all weather conditions and work efficiently with minimal upkeep.

  • Low maintenance: Because K-Guard Gutter Guards are made to last and feature an innovative, patented, high-strength hanger design, you can rest assured they will always keep their form and require zero upkeep once installed.  You’ll never again have to risk your safety climbing ladders to keep your gutters clean — there just won’t be any need to.
  • Greater capacity: K-Guard gutters are a full 5-inches wide and can accommodate larger, 3×4-inch downspouts for more water and debris drainage than other smaller systems.
  • Attractive appearance: K-Guard gutter systems are custom-fit and feature a smooth, curved look as opposed to the sharp corners and vertical faces of traditional gutters.  Available in a variety of colors, your new gutters can offer you beauty as well as functionality.

Are You Using The Best Leaf Gutter System For Your Household?

By | Gutter

house with gutter guardsAs a homeowner, considering the best leaf gutter systems may be the last thing on your mind.  After all, our tendency is to focus on only the most obvious areas of home improvement — such as a dated kitchen or an uninspiring bedroom — before taking notice of preventative solutions that could protect our properties from serious damage. 

What’s wrong with my gutter?

Inefficient gutter systems are silent enemies to your home’s foundation and roof, causing a myriad of problems from water stains to rotting fascia boards. Traditional, open-top gutters collect leaves, dust and other debris that cause gutters to clog, preventing effective water drainage.  This can lead to a whole host of issues that aren’t obvious until you’re left to deal with the aftermath, like wall and ceiling damage resulting from water leakage.

Why is a good leaf gutter system important?

Aside from preventing damage caused by ineffective water drainage, a good leaf gutter system affords peace of mind and doesn’t require you to risk safety by climbing ladders every few months to keep them clean.  As well as eliminating the need for this sometimes dangerous chore, an effective gutter system could also increase property value due to its practical advantages.

The best leaf gutter systems channel rainwater and debris away from your property’s foundation and surrounding areas for maximum efficiency and protection.  They do this by incorporating gutter guards — a cost-effective and useful addition to gutters that limit water flow as well as protect against windswept leaves and debris.

How can K-Guard Gutter Guards protect my home?

Imagine having a leaf gutter system you didn’t have to worry about for at least 20 years. One that could withstand virtually any weather conditions, keep its form, drain water/debris effectively and blend in with your home’s appearance? 

K-Guard Gutter Guards provide exactly that.  With a system built around patented, high-strength hangers, no other gutter systems provide the same capacity or durability. 

 

Here’s why:

Low maintenance: Featuring an innovative, patented, high-strength hanger design, K-Guard Gutter Guards are made to last with strong, all-weather polymers that keep their form no matter the external conditions.  Say goodbye to gutter sag and expensive upkeep.

Unlimited lifespan: K-Guard system’s gutter and hood is made of heavy-duty aluminum that is non-corrosive and practically invincible against any weather conditions.  The durability of its design gives your home a virtually endless lifespan of protection.   

Better capacity: K-Guard gutters are a full 5-inches wide and can accommodate larger, 3×4-inch downspouts for more water/debris drainage than other, smaller systems.  

Blends in: Most gutter systems have sharp corners and vertical faces, whereas K-Guard gutters’ smooth, curved appearance blends in effortlessly with your home.  With a wide variety of colors available, you can find the perfect solution that compliments your needs both practically and aesthetically.

gutter guardWhat makes K-Guard Gutter Guards better than other systems?

Unlike competitor gutter systems, K-Guard gives a multitude of additional benefits that not only protect your home from the elements but can also eliminate liability in terms of the roof warranty.  Key differences include:

Size:  K-Guard is a 5-inch gutter system, at least full inch larger than the 3 to 4-inch gutters offered by other competitors, giving your home much more capacity for water drainage. 

A complete system: K-Guard is the only ‘value for money’ gutter system that provides a complete gutter and hood solution.

No roof liability:  Since K-Guard gutter systems attach to fascia boards and rafter tails instead of roof shingles, you can rest assured your roof warranty won’t be affected if other unrelated damp issues arise.

Rear drainage channel:  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 interference with roof:  K-Guard gutter systems are engineered to fit properly on your home without obstructing the roof or roofline, whereas competitor products are designed to go on existing gutters.

Gutter leak prevention:  K-Guard gutters always include a new gutter and hood to give your home a completely new, efficient drainage system.  Other competitor products incorporate their products onto existing gutters which may be effective unless the gutters are leaky or rotten before the product is installed.

Complementary appearance:  As K-Guard hoods and gutters are installed together and made of the same material and color, there is no chance of a mismatch – unlike other products that try to match colors of existing gutters.  The smooth face, crown-molding-like appearance is also more aesthetically-pleasing than traditional clunky vertical faces.

Peace of mind

While not the first thing on a homeowner’s mind, a good leaf gutter system is essential in protecting property value.  Don’t be faced with the choice of either money or leaves down the drain — eliminate that question today!

It needn’t be disruptive – a professional installation of K-Guard Gutter Guards can be completed in one day for most homes and will save you headaches and money in the long run.   A variety of colors available will help you to choose both beauty and functionality while affording you the peace of mind that your drainage system is guarded against the elements, and ready to serve you for the things that matter — enjoying your home.

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

By | Gutter Maintenance

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.

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?

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.

  • 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

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.

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?

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.

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.

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 Preventionleave in gutter

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 yogutters and downspoutur 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.
