Asphalt shingles come with a manufacturer’s warranty. Lifting and interfering with the starter course (the shingles at your roof’s lower edge) could void the warranty, and it is definitely not good for the water resistance of the shingles. Many gutter covers require homeowners to lift the shingles and shove a metal gutter cover up under the first or second row of shingles.
K-Guard gutters never interfere with your existing roof, leaving the shingles pressed flat against your roof to keep protecting it.
Once your home is protected with K-Guard gutters, you have zero maintenance to do on them. No ladders to climb; no yucky gutter mess to pull from gutter troughs. No unpleasant surprises from insect or mouse nests. There’s absolutely nothing you have to do to keep your gutters working year-round with no clogs! You do not even have to worry about cleaning the durable paint finish; it washes clean with each rain.
K-Guard gutter systems are engineered to be a fully integrated component, matching a tough, strong gutter with patented, high-strength gutter hangers, downspouts and a removable gutter hood. Because K-Guard gutters are engineered and constructed to work as an integrated system, they are extremely durable, beautiful and amazingly strong.
K-Guard gutters are designed to endure the toughest weather, from the heaviest downpours through the harshest winter weather. The thick aluminum used throughout the system will never corrode and is readily available, so you will never be caught with an “orphan gutter system,” unable to find parts or have more gutters added as you build additions to your home.
Because of the smooth, sleek appearance of the entire system, these clog-free gutters not only perform beautifully, they look beautiful doing it. Available in more than 40 colors, the K-Guard gutter system will match any look on any style of home.
The ABS synthetic used to make K-Guard hangers is so strong the whole gutter can support 35 pounds per linear foot or 70 pounds of downward force per hanger. The hood atop the system can support 60 pounds per square foot both downward (a load of water) and upward (wind uplift) without flexing and bending. This awesome strength is duel attachment gutter hangers being placed every two feet inside the gutters and supporting the K-Guard Seamless Leaf Free Gutter System.
We realize Minnesota and Wisconsin winters can give a normal gutter a vigorous workout. K-Guard gutters withstand every snowy, icy and windy weather condition. Ice never gets a chance to fill and freeze inside the gutter; it forms icicles in the face of the gutters that simply fall off when the sun warms the gutters. If you do not care for icicles, we can simply heat the gutter system. The strong hangers, attached directly to your home’s fascia and rafter tails, will not bend or buckle under any condition.
If hail dents or dings the hood of the K-Guard gutter system, our professionals remove and replace the hood, to maintain water flow. This cost is simply covered by your insurance company.
K-Guard gutters are Clog Free guaranteed. The K-Guard warranty covers the entire system: hangers, downspout, gutters, and hoods. The warranty provides two key features:
1. No maintenance.
2. No clogs
Or we will clean your gutters for free.
The paint finish on the sturdy aluminum has a limited lifetime warranty. It will not chip, peel or crack under normal conditions.
K-Guard also provides an installation guarantee, so you are protected from the installer’s mistakes through the lifetime workmanship warranty. Should your new gutters ever clog, we will come to your home free of charge and clear the clog quickly.
Separate and Superior
Unlike add-on meshes or flat covers, the K-Guard Gutter System is engineered from downspout up to the hood to be a single, working system. Rather than work around your existing gutters, we replace them with:
A full five-inch wide gutter, larger than other systems and standard home gutters;
Patented ABS synthetic hangers fully supporting the gutter and hood at four points of contact;
3 x 4 Downspouts.
The entire system adds a sleek, blending look to your home, taking on the appearance of fine molding rather than utilitarian gutters.
Some clog-free gutter products, once attached, are permanent. You cannot pry the top off without damaging the whole gutter. K-Guard gutter hoods are removable to allow for:
Replacement from hail or storm damage;
Access to the gutter for inserting heat cable to prevent icicle formation;
The K-Guard gutter system is truly leaf-free throughout its lifespan. Whether your home is surrounded by conifers with their thin pine needles, deciduous trees with broad leaves or older trees that drop a lot of small twigs, your home’s gutters will never clog from leaves or yard debris. Rain flows into the gutter while leaves wash off the curved hood.
Protect Your Home
Drainage with the K-Guard system occurs both at the front of the gutter and at the back. This allows for water, driven by wind or capillary action toward the back of the gutter, to drain harmlessly into the gutter, rather than flow against your fascia boards. No more rotten boards, weakened gutter hangers, or entryways for damaging insects or rodents.
Clogged gutters also can damage your home’s foundation, allowing gallons of water to fall near the foundation and weaken it. Clog-free gutters move the water away from the foundation, keeping the ground around your home drier than your yard.
Many hooded and mesh gutter systems retrofit into too small a space to be effective. They dislodge shingles, interfere with drip edges or even sit above the shingle line. K-Guard gutters replace the entire trough and downspout. Our professional, highly trained installers position the gutters at the right height and with the right slope to channel rainwater away from your roof edge, down the downspouts and away from your foundation.
Some gutter systems allow homeowner installation. Our factory trained technicians engineer, form and install your K-Guard gutters so you know the job is done correctly. Keeping warranties intact and preserving your peace of mind with correct installation.
