Not all regular and leaf-free gutters are created equal. We know this; it’s kind of our job. But you may not realize how different various gutter products can be. And maybe even more importantly, you may not realize how significant these differences can be to the safety, maintenance, and longevity of your home.
We’ve put together this handy guide to illustrate the differences and strengths of our K-Guard Leaf-Free Gutters.
Comparing With the Other Guys
We honestly believe that K-Guard Leaf-Free Gutters aren’t just different; they’re fundamentally better than any other regular or leaf-free gutters on the market. Here’s how K-Guard stands out from the other guys.
- Five inches wide to facilitate more drainage
- Gutter & guard come together in a single system
- Attaches to rafter ends & fascia board
- Designed to fit roof design
- Shape and color mimics home’s moulding
What Do These Differences Mean?
No Need to Clean
K-Guard’s built-in hood prevents any leaves or debris from clogging your gutters. Without any build-up, you no longer need to risk climbing a ladder to clean out your gutters or deal with any sort of rotting matter. The K-Guard system is essentially maintenance free.
Even if you don’t mind cleaning your gutters on a regular basis, there’s always the risk of a storm sneaking up on you. If a storm breaks before you have the chance to clear blockages from your gutters, it could cause significant damage to your home and property. K-Guard Leaf-Free Gutters are always ready to do their job without any extra help from you.
Always Drains Properly
Your gutters have a job to do: they’re supposed to direct water and runoff away from your property. Without facilitated drainage, rainwater would run directly off your roof, saturate the ground, and put your home and property at risk of sustaining pretty significant damage. When your gutters clog, it prevents them from working the way they’re supposed to.
The K-Guard system is made to keep leaves and debris out, avoiding blockages altogether. Not only that, the wider design allows more water to flow freely. Basically, K-Guard not only keeps water flowing away from your property, it keeps water flowing faster and more effectively than other gutters and gutter hoods.
The K-Guard gutter system is durable, efficient, and long-lasting. The built-in guard keeps any debris like leaves from entering the gutter and causing a clog. Even if small pieces of debris somehow enter the gutter, the system is backed up with 3×4 inch downspouts to help flush the pieces out.
There’s no reason your K-Guard Leaf-Free Gutters should ever clog. But, if they do somehow develop a clog, Carefree Gutter Guard will come and fix the situation for absolutely free!
Better Fit & Look With Your Roof
Typical gutter guards and hoods are meant to fit your existing gutters. While your gutters are made to fit your roof, a standalone gutter guard isn’t. Other gutter guards and hood can look bulky, and may interfere with your roof line.
K-Guard gutters are smooth and streamlined, designed to fit your roof and avoid interfering with your roof design. The K-Guard system comes in a variety of colors, almost camouflaging with your home.
Prevents Roof Damage
Most gutter guard products are attached to the roof under your shingles. This kind of installation can void your roof warranty, and could even cause some pretty significant damage to the roof. Because they’re installed under the shingles, lots of gutter guards make space for windswept water to seep under the shingles and cause damage.
K-Guard Leaf-Free Gutters aren’t attached to your roof, they’re attached to your fascia board below your roof. Installing our system won’t alter or affect your roof at all (except for preventing gutter clogs and flooding).
