Did you know that the first concept of gutters dates back to the Romans? Gutter systems have come a long way since 47 AD. Centuries later, the first seamless aluminum gutters were invented in the 1960s by Art Knudson.
The invention of seamless gutters changed the gutter industry as we knew it; leaks were minimized, gutter systems were more aesthetically pleasing, and they offered better protection from drainage issues. Sixty years after the first seamless gutters were invented, we’re still using them to this day. K-Guard is the premier seamless gutter installation service in the Heartland.
To learn all about how K-Guard is seamless and what sets our seamless gutter system apart from the rest, continue reading.
What are Seamless Gutters?
Seamless gutters differ from traditional gutter systems in a few ways. For one, seamless gutters are exactly that – seamless, meaning there are no joints that connect multiple pieces of aluminum. K-Guard Seamless Gutters are constructed of heavy-duty aluminum that’s customized and cut in one continuous piece.
How does K-Guard Make Seamless Gutters?
At K-Guard, we customize our seamless gutters to each home. Our process is very carefully done to ensure that no mistakes are made and our product is truly seamless and of the utmost quality.
When we arrive for your gutter installation service, we’ll show up with our 24 ft. truck. Inside of our truck is our rolling machine that all of our systems are constructed from. To make seamless gutters, we take flat coil stock that runs through a series of rollers in our rolling machine. These rollers slowly bend our heavy-duty aluminum through a 17 ft. long machine. Our rolling machine is longer than most other companies to ensure the enamel on the product won’t crack. Unlike other “complete” gutter systems, our curved hood is also seamless. It too goes through our rolling machine slowly to bend the metal and eliminate cracks.
We measure and cut everything to be the exact and perfect fit for your home. Each section of your gutter system is custom-made to complement your home’s design for a flawless fit.
What are Some Advantages of Seamless Gutters?
The main advantage of seamless gutters is that they eliminate leaks. Traditional sectional gutters have seams in between each piece which allows water to seep through these seams. While sectional gutters do a decent job of protecting a home from drainage issues, the seams will separate over time, causing leaks and drips that can ultimately cause drainage issues. Because seamless gutters are constructed of one piece of metal, there are no seams to allow leaks and drips.
Seamless gutters are also customized to your home. This means every single piece of metal and section of your gutter system will be custom cut during the gutter installation process to ensure it’s an exact and perfect fit. Our gutter product will fit your roof perfectly, never voiding your roof’s warranty.
Another advantage of seamless gutters is that they are aesthetically pleasing. The K-Guard Gutter System is designed to be smooth and curved, adding to your home’s beauty and perfectly complementing your home. Unlike unsightly traditional sectional gutters, our seamless gutters will blend perfectly with your home.
Among these advantages, seamless gutters offer more durability, have a longer lifespan versus traditional gutters, and reduce the amount of debris that can enter the gutter system.
