Frequently asked questions about K-Guard
The K-guard Leaf Free System is a completely engineered, fully integrated, leaf-free gutter system. No other system can offer the strength, durability, capacity, and attractiveness of K-Guard.
Our gutters are equipped with a front and rear drain for more water collection. This unique design causes the water to come into the gutter at two different angles. Our system’s rear drainage channel helps prevent wind-blown water from backing up under your roof’s edge and freezing, so the potential for ice damming is far lower then with other systems.
The K-Guard Leaf Free System is built around our patented, all weather high-strength polymer hangers, with this unique angled design the hangers are able to support vertical loads of 70 lbs. per hanger and our hood can support 60 lbs. of pressure per square foot. The hangers are screwed thru the fascia board and into the rafter tails, set every 24 inches inside the gutter. These hangers fully support the front and back of the gutter/hood as well as keeping the gutter from sagging or losing its form in any way.
The lifespan of the K-Guard Leaf Free System is practically unlimited. Made of heavy-duty .032 aluminum, the base material will never corrode. Our patented hangers give our gutters the strength to withstand virtually any weather conditions.
Due to its over-sized construction, our K-Guard Leaf Free System is able to handle more water than any other system. And since our gutters accommodate the larger 3×4-inch downspouts, the K-Guard Leaf Free System easily handles severe rain and flushes out any small pieces of debris that may occasionally enter the system.
The K-Guard Leaf Free System has a high back hem, this unique design allows us to install the gutters up under the drip edge, this gives added protection to your fascia board and prevents any debris, water or ice from getting behind the gutters. No more drips coming from behind your gutters! No more rotten fascia boards! And since we do not interfere with your roof, there is no voided roof warranty or damaged shingles!!
Our K-Guard Leaf Free System is far easier to install than any one piece system. The open gutter is hung first, then the hood is attached. If the hood is ever damaged by hail, ladders or tree branches, it is easily removed and replaced without having to dismantle the gutter and downspouts. If the homeowner is curious to see if the gutters really work the way we say they do, they can lift up the hood and peek inside. The hood can be removed to facilitate a retrofit installation of heating cable to prevent icicle formation.
We’re so confident in the performance of our K-Guard system, we offer a triple lifetime guarantee! We guarantee your K-Guard system will remain clog-free, will never sag, and will never pull away from your home – For life.
If your K-Guard system ever develops a clog, pulls away from your home or begins to sag, K-Guard of Nebraska will come remedy the problem absolutely free!
