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.

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.

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?

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.
