Why Switch to K-Guard?


Made from heavy-duty, lightweight aluminum, the K-Guard Leaf Free Gutter System is built to withstand anything your home goes through. Aluminum is naturally corrosion-resistant and durable, making it the perfect material for your next gutter system. No matter how much wind, rain, snow, or hail, K-Guard’s durable, innovative design means that your gutter system will stay properly secured, resist corrosion, and continue to drain water away from your home.

Never worry about paint chips, clogs in your gutter, or your gutter system pulling away from your home again. When you switch to K-Guard Leaf Free Gutter Systems, we offer lifetime warranties and guarantees on every unit.


K-Guard outperforms other gutter systems with our innovative design and quality craftsmanship. As a complete gutter system, every piece of the gutter works together to give you the best performance possible, from the covers to the downspouts and everything in between. Keep water rapidly flowing away from your house while stopping leaves, pests, and debris from clogging your gutters with the K-Guard Leaf Free Gutter System.


A good gutter system goes unnoticed. Some gutter systems can show noticeable dents, discoloration, paint chips, sagging, rust spots, and more with time. With K-Guard, your gutter systems complement your home instead of taking away from it. With our wide selection of colors, smooth finish, and sleek design, the K-Guard Leaf Free Gutter System can match any home’s design.

Works on Any Home

Regardless of the pitch of your roof, K-Guard’s gutter system is the perfect solution for you. Any home can experience the complete gutter protection that K-Guard’s Leaf Free Gutter System provides year-round. Whether you’re looking for a gutter system to last or one to better compliment your home, K-Guard is your choice.

In the Chicago area, homes experience a lot of severe weather, and K-Guard can protect your gutters from all of them and more. No matter how much rain you get, K-Guard can filter it all away from your home while keeping your gutters free from leaves, snow, debris, and pests. See how from K-Guard Co-Owner, Carter Clond.

Which is Best: K-Guard or Traditional Open-Top Gutters?

When deciding to buy a new gutter system, you might wonder how K-Guard compares to the traditional open-top, half-round systems out there. Besides a sleek design and quality performance, K-Guard also offers other benefits that the other gutter systems can’t.

K-Guard Gutter Guards Mount above the Floodplain

Unlike other gutter systems, K-Guard mounts above the floodplain. Traditional gutter systems are commonly mounted to the fascia or trim and sometimes even the roof. This can cause separation, sagging, and other types of damage. By mounting our gutter system above the floodplain, we eliminate the chance of water damage and gutter separation on your home.

Larger Downspouts

In Chicago, our homes can experience heavy amounts of precipitation, depending on the season. Because of this, the size of your downspout can make a huge difference in your gutter’s overall performance.

Traditional gutters use 2×3” downspouts, which can’t always handle all the precipitation we can get. K-Guard fixes this problem with our large 4×3” downspouts, capable of handling more than 22 inches of rain per hour.

Large Inside Corners

You might not think about it, but the corners in your gutters can make a huge difference. If your gutters have tight corners, common among traditional gutters, leaks and overflow can occur. With K-Guard, we eliminate these “choke points” by being the only gutter system with 45-degree by 45-degree inside corners. These open corners allow more water to flow freely without getting choked up or overflowing.

No Clogs – Guaranteed

Every K-Guard gutter system comes with a lifetime clog-free guarantee. When you choose K-Guard over a traditional gutter option, you choose maintenance-free gutters—no more cleaning your gutters after a heavy storm or worrying that your gutters might not be working.

Guaranteed Transferable

Because of its durability, K-Guard Leaf Free Gutter Systems are transferable for the life of the home. Since traditional gutters don’t last nearly as long as a K-Guard system, this is an exclusive K-Guard offer.

How K-Guard Compares to Gutter Covers and Filters

K-Guard offers a protective gutter cover for your home, but it’s much more than other gutter covers or filters. The biggest difference? We won’t void your roof’s warranty.

We eliminate many common problems, such as debris build-up, homeowners face with traditional covers and filters. See more about how K-Guard Leaf Free Gutter Systems compare.

K-Guard vs. Other “Complete” Systems

While other gutter systems say their “complete” system protects against clogs, K-Guard stands out as the most advanced clog-free gutter system.


A K-Guard Gutter System can support a minimum of 22 inches of rain per hour. Unlike other “complete” gutter systems that only offer 4 ⅝” or less capacity, we use larger downspouts and higher capacity troughs to maximize your gutter’s flow rate and continue to push water away from your home.

No Trough Support

Over time, traditional “complete” systems begin to sag. This can create many issues for your home, like debris and pests entering your gutters, but K-Guard eliminates that. Over time, our complete gutter system stays securely in place without sagging or pulling away.

No Rear Drainage Channel

Unlike K-Guard, other “complete” systems don’t always have a rear drainage channel. Being in The Windy City can be a challenge for Chicago homeowners, as the wind blows drainage back toward your home. This also leaves your fascia boards unprotected, leading to sagging or pulling away from your home.

Moisture Barrier

“Complete” systems don’t offer the same protections as K-Guard does. With traditional gutters, moisture can get trapped in the system, leading to damage to your home, like wood rot, leaks, corrosion, and your gutters pulling away. With K-Guard, your home is fully protected, as you would expect from a complete gutter system.

I am so excited for our new leaf free gutters system by Kguard Chicago! My husband had a close call cleaning the gutters this fall and we knew that we needed a real solution. Their lifetime warranty is unbeatable. When we financed and broke down the monthly payment we couldn’t believe how inexpensive it was. Our neighbors are already interested in having them come out.
