Wanting a Gutter option that has Zero maintenance but Wondering About Your Options?

More than likely, the reason you are here is because you have been struggling with your gutters getting clogged constantly and you have started searching all over the internet for weeks with questions like “affordable gutters near me” “gutter screens” or “gutter guards”? Looking for a safer, more effective gutter system that can eliminate your frustration? Well, you are in the right place! We can help you with that!


Are you tired of the maintenance that your gutters require? Getting up on a ladder? Or constantly having to replace them? Well we have just the solution for you… K-Guard!


What is K-Guard?


K-Guard is a local family owned company with Owners Travis Burch, and Carter Clond. They had a vision one day to come together and give people the best gutter system on the market with 100% satisfaction and guarantee for each customer. 


Are you tired of seeing your loved ones get on unsafe ladders and put their lives in danger trying to clean out their gutters? Let us eliminate that for you. K-Guard is a leaf free gutter system that requires NEVER having to step onto a ladder again to clean your gutters. Yes I said, NEVER. With that being said, K-guard is the only gutter system that provides the absolute best solution for you and your home. Not only is our gutter system the most durable .032” thick but they also compliment your home with how beautiful and seamless they are. 


K-Guard seamless gutters is a complete system with a solid hood that allows any debris to slide right off without clogging the gutter system allowing water to flow through the system. This allows a lifetime of no more clogging and it keeps any debris from entering the system. This seamless gutter does all the work for you, your only job is to relax. 


K-Guard Compared to Gutter Covers, Filters, and Screens?


The number one difference between K-Guard and many other gutter solutions like covers, filters, and screens, is that these only TEMPORARILY fix the problem. These products can also cause more damage in the long run, by not working efficiently to protect the rest of your home, causing water damage to your roof, siding, and foundation. This can cause cracks, mold, and flooding into your home. Not having the best quality gutter system will cause that minor problem to turn into a much bigger financial stress that could have been prevented from the beginning. Now let’s go over your options.


The majority of people start out with a regular gutter system and everyone has tried their very best to protect these systems by running to their local stores and purchasing gutter screens.  They come in many different size holes, some are aluminum or plastic. The issue with gutter screens is that they keep some of the bigger stuff out like acorns, pine cones, but a lot of the smaller debris can still make their way into the gutter system clogging the gutter, causing you more work in the long run. Additionally, when it is time to clean the gutters the task becomes more cumbersome. Now you will have to remove the screens, clean the gutters, then reattach the screens.  Making your gutter cleaning chore that much more difficult and dangerous. 


Hard covers do their best to keep debris from collecting in the gutter, but the downside to these are they sit underneath your roof shingles which can cause damage and void your roofs warranty. Not to mention if installed at the wrong angle it will cause massive waterfalls.  


The leaf guard one piece gutter system has liquid adhesion where water sticks to the surface and goes around into the gutter. The system does a decent job with keeping the debris out of the gutter, but it has no support of the trough, allowing sagging to occur over time which allows birds and nests to populate. Making your gutter chore more work. Another issue with this gutter system is that if the flashing tab is too small, which means they have to do back flashes to get it behind the roof’s *drip edge. If your gutter is not properly tucked in behind your roof’s drip edge, that can lead to wood rot on your home’s fascia board due to water getting behind the gutter.  *If you don’t have a drip edge, contact your local roofing company.


Don’t worry we saved the best for last. K-Guard gutters have a 1 ¼ inch built in flashing tab that bucks behind your drip edge which allows water to make much longer runs staying behind the drip edge. K-Guard is the one and only system that has a rear drainage channel that protects against strong winds, as well as ice damming, and lowers your chance at icicles in the cold winter months. Our system doesn’t puncture the roof causing damage or sagging, keeping your roof’s warranty intact. On top of all that, the system doesn’t allow debris in, to keep your gutters clog free for a lifetime. 


K-Guard is the largest complete gutter system on the market and handles 40% more water than any other gutter system. 


Oh, you thought we were done? Well there’s so much more to tell you! Stick around for more information on why K-Guard is worth your time. It just gets better.
