Gutter Guards: Good, Bad, and Ugly
Good: Gutters protect your home from water damage by collecting rainwater from your roof and channeling it away from your home’s foundation, driveway and porches.
Bad: Traditional, open-top gutters also collect leaves and debris. This causes the gutters to clog, leading to ineffective water drainage and potentially severe damage to your home.
Ugly: Clogged gutters can cause widespread damage to your home’s foundation and roof, as well as water staining and even rotting fascia board. Without a leaf-free gutter system, you’ll have to continually risk climbing a ladder to keep your gutters clean.
The Clog-Free Solution
K-Guard Gutter Guards are a completely engineered, fully integrated, leaf-free gutter system. No other system can offer the strength, durability, capacity and attractiveness of K-Guard.
Strength: The K-Guard system is built around our patented, high-strength hangers. Made from strong, all-weather polymers and set every 24 inches inside the gutter, these hangers fully support the hood and keep the gutter from sagging, or in any way losing its form.
Durability: The lifespan of the K-Guard system is practically unlimited. Made of heavy-duty aluminum, the base material will not corrode. The coatings on the gutter and hood will last over 20 years, and the patented hangers give our gutters the strength to withstand virtually any weather conditions.
Capacity: Because our gutters are a full 5-inches wide, our system is able to drain more water than other, smaller systems. And since our gutters accommodate the larger, 3×4-inch downspouts, K-Guard easily flushes out any small pieces of debris that may occasionally enter the system.
Attractiveness: In contrast to the sharp corners and vertical faces of most gutter systems, the smooth, curved appearance of K-Guard gutters complements and adds beauty to your home. Ask your local dealer about the variety of colors available in your area.
Why Gutter Guards?
The experts of HGTV say you should always have gutter guards. Gutter guards are incredibly cost effective and useful. They eliminate the need for what can be a dangerous chore, while increasing property value. For these reasons it doesn’t make any sense to not have them. Gutter guards fall into 2 categories: gutter covers and gutter screens. Screens are usually made of wire mesh, nylon or foam. Gutter screens are simpler and cheaper to install, but usually don’t last as long. Gutter covers sit on top of your gutters, so their appearance is often more pleasing. Also, gutter covers limit the water flow into your gutters because… well… they cover the gutters. They can be made out of a variety of materials, including copper, aluminum, plastic, wire mesh, nylon and foam.
