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.
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.
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.
