How Does a Leaf-Free Gutter System Work?

By | Gutter

leaf-free gutterYou tell yourself the same thing every year, “this is the last time I’m climbing up this ladder.” You’ve been dreaming about the day when your roof is leaf-free, you can put the blower and ladder away and get your mind off cleaning out the gutters and onto important things like family, fun and friends.

Even though you’ve been toying with the idea of leaf-free gutters for awhile now, you may be holding back because you still have questions about how these leaf-free systems work, and which system would be the right one for your situation. 

No more leaves, twigs, debris or clogs!

You’ve got better things to do with your time than cleaning out the gutters. Not only that, but it’s just not safe!  If you have an inefficient gutter system like your current one, it can wreak havoc with your home’s foundation and roof, causing all kinds of problems from water stains to rotting fascia boards. 

Traditional, open-top gutters notoriously collect leaves, pine needles and other debris that cause gutters to clog, thus preventing effective water drainage.  The result of that bad drainage can lead to a whole host of issues that aren’t obvious until you’re left to deal with the results, like wall and ceiling damage due to water leaks or seepage.

A good leaf-free gutter system can offer peace of mind and never requires climbing ladders to keep gutters clean. And because they look as good as they protect, a leaf-free system is a smart investment that blends in beautifully with your home and can ultimately boost your property value.

How the K-Guard leaf-free system works

A leaf-free gutter system is designed to do one thing — to channel rainwater and debris down and away from your property’s foundation and surrounding areas for maximum efficiency and protection.  

That’s why the K-Guard leaf-free gutter system is built to exacting standards using innovative patented, high-strength hanger design of all-weather high-impact polymers for optimum durability and performance.  And because our gutters are a full 5 inches wide, they’re able to drain water more efficiently than smaller leaf-free gutters or gutter covers.

 

K-Guard system offers unbridled durability and protection:

  • No gutter sag, no maintenance high-strength hanger design keeps its form no matter what the external conditions. No need to tend to gutters ever again!
  • Better capacity for better drainage 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.  
  • Long lifespan, no more clogs – both gutter and hood are made of heavy-duty aluminum that is non-corrosive and practically invincible against extreme weather conditions. No clogs ever!
  • Blends right in with your home – 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. 

Other systems just can’t compare

We may be a tooting our own horn, but we think we’ve got the best gutter system around. The competition is tough, but our K-Guard system is tougher, so when you compare apples to apples, other systems just don’t measure up.

  • Larger 5” size – K-Guard 5-inch gutters are a full inch larger than traditional gutters and can hold 70 gallons per foot
  • 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 hindrance to shingles – 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 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 ensures optimum performance and durability.
  • Free professional installation in just one day – to make sure you’re getting the very best of your new gutter system, K-Guard contractors will come to your property with specialized equipment and install it for you in just one day.
  • K-Guard quality and experience – with an unprecedented reputation for quality and excellence in home drainage systems since 1998, K-Guard has been field-tested with over 35 million feet of gutter guard systems installed across 37 states. You can trust your property is in good hands!

How the K-Guard Leaf-Free Gutter Guard System Compares to Conventional Gutters

By | Gutter, Homeowners, Related, Tips

A home’s rain gutters play an essential role in prevention and protection. Rainwater can cause numerous costly and expensive home issues if a correctly installed and maintained rain gutter system is not in place. If gutters and downspouts become clogged with leaves or debris, the gutters will overflow and eventually compromise the integrity of the rain gutters. Having an efficient rain gutter system in place has many benefits regarding water drainage, preventing gutter leaks, avoiding foundation problems, basement flooding, preventing erosion and damage to siding, and water staining.

What Are K-Guard Leaf-Free Gutter Guards?

When it comes time to replace your current gutters, or if you are merely looking for a maintenance-free option, consider the benefits of having an entire gutter system like K-Guard leaf-free gutter guards professionally installed. The K-Guard system boasts a superior product that is secured by their patented, all-weather, and highly-durable polymer hangers. The K-Guard gutter system uses patented technology to keep your gutters free of leaves and debris, keeping your home protected and looking its best. K-guard gutter guard system

What Are the Advantages of the K-Guard Gutter System Compared to Conventional Gutters?

K-Guard gutters are a “full system” because they include the gutter and hood. There are other benefits to choosing K-Guard over competitors.

Size

The K-Guard leaf-free system is a five-inch gutter system, while most competitor gutters are designed for three- and four-inch gutters.

Installation

The K-Guard system attaches directly and securely to the rafter tails and fascia board; competitor products are connected to under the roof’s shingles, which can lead to potential roof warranty issues.

Drainage

K-Guard has a rear-drainage channel providing water with two paths of entering the gutter system. Many competitors do not have this option as water blown by wind ends up under the roof shingles, causing damage and reducing the lifespan of a roof’s shingles, especially those closest to the gutters.

Roof Fit

K-Guard gutter systems are designed to fit correctly on the home. The system does not touch or interfere with the home’s roofline. Competitor products are built to fit onto existing gutter systems and do not take into account the roof design.

Appearance

When it comes to appearance, the K-Guard leaf-free gutter system is far superior as it has a smooth face that mimics the appearance of molding, rather than alternative products that often look bulky and do not flow with the rest of the home’s exterior. The K-Guard gutter and hood are the same color, and there are a variety of colors available to match the aesthetics of your home. This element allows your gutter system to add to the look of your home instead of sticking out like a sore thumb.

Prevention

When it comes to the end-goal of preventing gutter leaks, adding an entirely new water-drainage structure like the K-Guard system is the way to go. Other gutters that do not provide a complete system, but instead add to existing ones will only work for a period, if at all.

If you are looking for a complete gutter water-drainage system that will remove the necessity of maintenance and the cost of hiring someone to do so, the K-Guard leaf-free gutter guard system is the best course of action for homeowners. Find a dealer near you to schedule a free estimate.
