Protect Your Home with K Guard
May 26th, 2017 4:30 pm
K Guard GuttersBad weather comes with the territory in Northeast Ohio. Severe weather causes various problems for homeowners. Common weather-related issues are described below.
 
Ice Buildup
Ice buildup inside gutters can ruin the entire gutter system. When ice forms inside gutters and then thaws, this process rips the gutter system off of the home over time. K Guard’s reverse curve design prevents ice from building up inside the gutter system.  
 
Water Damage
Water damage to the home and roof is a costly side effect of clogged and overflowing gutters.  Clogged, overflowing gutters can flood the basement and cause damage to the foundation of the home. Overflowing gutters can also damage the structural and/or finish portions of the walls and overhang. Water runoff can cause mold to form. Not only can these various issues arise due to clogged gutters, but they can also occur without being noticed by the homeowner until it is too late.

How Does the K Guard System Work?
May 25th, 2017 10:14 pm
K Guard GuttersThe K Guard Leaf Free Gutter System, with its two-piece design consisting of a hood and gutter trough, is the best gutter product to protect your home. Each part of the K Guard system provides a benefit to homeowners.
 
Hood
The hood of the K Guard gutter is called a reverse curve hood. The reverse curve design allows water to flow into the trough and then into the downspout, all while deflecting leaves and other debris. The K Guard hood is 20% larger than standard one-piece reverse curve gutter hoods, which allows the system to handle a stronger water flow.
 
Trough
The K Guard gutter trough is larger than standard one-piece gutter troughs. K Guard’s 5-inch gutter trough provides nearly 40% increased water capacity over standard one-piece gutters. The gutter and hood are installed with a small opening that allows water to flow into the gutter. The reverse-curve design prevents leaves from entering the gutter through this opening.

K Guard's Frequently Asked Questions


K Guard Gutters

How Strong is The K Guard Gutter System?

In order to determine just how strong the K Guard Leaf Free Gutter System really is, we had computer-based engineering studies conducted. What these computer-based engineering studies concluded is that the K Guard Leaf Free Gutter System can:

  • Support vertical loads on the front of the gutter of 35 pounds per foot of gutter. That is equal to 70 pounds per installed hanger
  • Support 60 pounds per square foot of pressure, both in load and uplift, before flexing of the hood will take place.

Is K Guard Wind & Hail Resistant?

Our superior hood-forming machines use patented technology which adds lines of texture to the hood. Combined with the support of our patented hangers, these texture lines strengthen and stabilize the hood, while also helping to mask any markings left by hail. However, it's important for homeowners to keep in mind that like any other metal surface, severe...

A few of our Many customer testimonials


  • Removed old gutters and replaced with K-Guard system. K-Guard arrived on 6/23. Removed old gutters and once painters finished appropriate areas, K-Guard came back and very professionally and neatly installed new gutter system. Clean up was impressive.

    Maria Jessica Turner, Rittman OH

  • K-Guard gutter system was installed on our home. The workers arrived early, however, before completing the job, it rained. They returned the next morning and finished. They apologized for taking longer, but it wasn't their fault. They were very courteous and professional. We are highly satisfied.

    Mr & Mrs Bernard Taylor, Ravenna, OH

  • We used the services of K Guard Leaf Free Gutter Systems. They put on new gutters. They did good work and they were thorough when they came to look at our gutters in terms of asking questions for downspouts and that kind of thing.
