What Gutters are Best for Kansas City?

A bolt of lightning illuminates the night sky over a residential neighborhood.

There’s nothing quite like living in The City of Fountains. From our changing seasons and relatively mild weather to our professional sports teams (Go Chiefs and Royals!) and outstanding barbecue, there are many reasons for locals to love calling Kansas City home.

If you’re a homeowner, you understand that although we experience all four seasons with relatively mild winters, our homes go through a lot each year. From winters that bring snowstorms and ice storms to a rainy season in the spring and high humidity and severe thunderstorms in the summer, there’s never really a dull weather moment. Homeowners in Kansas City need a durable gutter system that can withstand all weather events. So, what gutters are best for Kansas City? Keep reading to find out.


One That is Durable

Homeowners in Kansas City, Overland Park, Topeka, and surrounding areas need a durable gutter system. No matter the season, we could experience strong wind gusts, hail, and ice that could wreak havoc on a traditional gutter system. A gutter system that isn’t made from heavy-duty aluminum may corrode and show wear and tear throughout the years. A gutter system that isn’t durable could also pull away from the home depending on certain severe weather conditions.


One That Offers Excellent Performance

Living in the Kansas City area means that the weather can change at the drop of a dime. Our weather is so unpredictable that the National Weather Service named it one of the top cities with unpredictable weather in the United States. This is why homeowners in our area need a gutter system that can withstand all weather conditions at any given time. A gutter system that can flush meltwater and stormwater at a rapid pace is ideal for homeowners in and around Kansas City.


One That Has Warranties

As previously mentioned, our weather is very unpredictable. Winter highs can be more spring-like one minute with a severe winter weather storm advisory the next. Or it could be a warm summer day with clear skies, and the weather could shift to a torrential downpour with hail at any given moment. Because we undergo many different weather patterns here in The Heartland, homeowners need a gutter system with warranties. A gutter system with warranties often means the system is durable and can resist corrosion and paint chips. If there is damage and there is a warranty then your gutters will be protected from lasting damage.


What Gutter System is Best?

One extremely durable gutter product that offers excellent protection and is backed by multiple warranties is the K-Guard Leaf Free Gutter System. Why K-Guard? K-Guard is a complete gutter system crafted from heavy-duty aluminum that can withstand all weather conditions while offering extreme protection against drainage issues. Whether there is a severe thunderstorm with hail, ice storm, or strong wind gusts, K-Guard offers extreme protection.

Our gutter product is so durable that the base material will never corrode, and the paint will never chip, something many other gutter installation companies can’t offer. K-Guard is so durable that it’ll never pull away from the home or damage your soffit and fascia boards or roof in the process. With larger downspouts and larger inside corners, K-Guard can handle a minimum of 22 inches of rain per hour, whereas traditional gutter systems can’t handle heavy precipitation.

The K-Guard System also has a curved hood that allows debris like leaves and pine needles to slide off, only allowing water to adhere to the system and enter the gutter through a narrow opening. No debris inside the gutters means you’ll never need to clean your gutters again and your system will be protected and free of clogs no matter the season. 

At K-Guard, we offer three-lifetime warranties to all of our customers. We have a lifetime paint warranty, ensuring paint will never chip and our heavy-duty aluminum will never corrode. Our lifetime no-clog warranty guarantees that your gutter system will keep debris out and never become clogged. We also offer a no pull-away warranty thanks to our durable polymers that fully support the hood of our gutter system. K-Guard is guaranteed transferable for the life of the home, something most other gutter installation companies can’t offer!
