That depends on terms of license agreement. Due to geographic proximity to other territories, older license agreements allowed dealers to install gutters outside their area- most did not because of added cost to go into other areas outside their territory. New license agreements, have been changed to make the territories exclusive so once the territory is agreed on no other dealer may perform installs of K-Guard without the Licensee’s consent.
Dealers must purchase the K-Guard Hood and Trough machines that are roll-form the Hood and Trough, the gutter components, which include the patented hangers, endcaps (left and right), inside and outside miters, inside miter hood frame and hood screen. K-Guard does offer valley flow reducers which are an optional purchase.
K-Guard, unlike many competitors, allows the licensee to source coil from local providers. Dealers may choose their supplier, making them free to negotiate the best deal for supplies. K-Guard does not require any coil purchases or royalties.
K-Guard will feature each licensed dealer on the K-Guard website thus providing accessibility to the leads-generation system, along with links to each dealer’s website. Any and all leads will be sent to licensees as they are received. K-Guard also sells, at cost, a trifold brochure and door hangers for home shows and local advertisement. As a licensed dealer you will have the right to use the K-Guard trademark and all artwork available.
As a K-Guard dealer you will be required to service K-Guard in your territory. This includes all clogs if the clog resides within the gutter and not the downspout, as well as gutter separation from the fascia and sagging. Because K-Guard requires hangers be placed at least every two feet, screwed into fascia board, the hangers should anchor into rafter tails every six feet. K-Guard does require that the coil licensee’s purchase be a twenty year no corrosion warrantied coil.
K-Guard gutter machines are engineered to produce quality product with .027 coil or .032 coil. Outside of this gauge, material will damage machines and result in unsellable gutter. As the .032 coil is a thicker gauge and more durable, K-Guard recommends using .032 coil stock. K-Guard machines can also run 16 oz. and 20 oz. copper.
No. K-Guard gutters are installed directly in to the fascia board. There is no contact with the roof line or shingle. Many competing systems will attach to the home and roof in multiple anchor positions, often times under the first row of shingles. If the site has gutter in contact with shingles this can void many roofer warranties. K-Guard is a worry- free alternative to this problem.
Yes. K-Guard is a seamless two-piece system consisting of the hood and trough. Many competitors are either made as a one-piece system or the topper portion is attached in multiple areas. K-Guard was engineered so that servicing the gutter is simple and timely. One end cap can be removed and then the hood is free to be slid out the open end or lifted off the patented hanger. It is as easy as that.
