When was the last time you cleaned your gutters? Was it recently, within the past six months? Has it been over a year? Do you even remember the last time you cleaned them? Failing to clean open-top gutters often will result in clogs, which can lead to costly damage to your home. Keeping gutters clean is paramount when it comes to them working optimally. However, there is one gutter system you never need to clean.
K-Guard Seamless Gutters are the only gutters on the market that require zero cleaning. How is this possible? Keep reading to learn all about the low upkeep appeal of K-Guard Seamless Gutters and to see if they’re the right gutter option for your home and lifestyle.
Why Do Traditional Gutters Need Frequent Cleaning?
If you have traditional open-top gutters or half-round gutters without gutter guards, you know how easily they can trap debris. The inside is completely exposed, allowing leaves, twigs, pine needles, and pests to enter the gutter system. Living in Lynchburg and surrounding cities means we get all four seasons, each bringing severe weather. High wind speeds, heavy rainfall, and even snowstorms that can carry debris in the air will deposit it inside the gutter.
What harm can all this debris cause? For one, clogs. Clogged gutters are a danger to any home, potentially causing water damage to the roof, siding, and basement, and can lead to foundation damage. Wet leaves, silt, and sticks pile up quickly, especially if the gutters aren’t cleaned frequently. This debris forms a clog that impedes water flow, forcing water to remain on the roof, seep into the soffit and fascia boards, trickle down the siding, and collect around the foundation. All of these home components can suffer if frequently exposed to excess water. Damage like wood rot, mold, and structural damage can occur.
Next, if you have a sectional gutter system, it has a greater risk of leaking and clogging compared to a seamless gutter system. Small gaps can form between each section, catching debris and causing water to trickle through the gutter and onto the siding and the grass below. Installing seamless gutters leads to low-maintenance gutters and an overall better-functioning gutter system.
What Makes K-Guard Seamless Gutters Low Maintenance?
Can a gutter system truly be low maintenance? Absolutely! K-Guard Seamless Gutters are hassle-free gutters that require zero maintenance regardless of the type of home they’re installed on. How is this possible? First, K-Guard is seamless, meaning the gutter system is installed on a home using a continuous strip of heavy-duty aluminum. Unlike sectional gutters that attach small sections of gutter using tons of bolts and screws, K-Guard seamless gutters have no gaps or pieces held together with adhesive or countless bolts and screws. This means they’ll never leak, requiring zero maintenance like hiring a professional to find and repair a leaky gutter.
Next, K-Guard is made of heavy-duty aluminum that will never corrode, get paint chips, or tear away from the home. This durability leads to strong gutters that will never need repainting or repairing due to rusting gutter material or sagging from severe weather.
Another thing that makes K-Guard Seamless Gutters low maintenance is that they will never clog. Since the gutters are installed using one continuous piece of heavy-duty aluminum, no gaps exist in the gutter system that can trap debris. K-Guard has a curved hood, acting as a gutter leaf guard that keeps all debris out. When debris like leaves and sticks fall onto the curved hood, they slide off, never entering the gutters or collecting on top of them. This results in zero chance for debris to enter the system. Therefore, there is zero chance for K-Guard Gutters to clog.
Think about all the time you’ll be able to spend doing the things you love rather than performing the daunting task of cleaning your gutters multiple times per year. Scaling a ladder while carrying a bucket scooping out debris, and repeating the process around the entire gutter system can take hours, even days to complete. K-Guard gives you back precious time that would otherwise be spent cleaning traditional gutters.
