How LeafGuard’s Advanced Seamless Gutters Work for Homes in Eastern South Dakota
The concepts of seamless gutters and gutter protection are simple. On one hand, you have a streamlined gutter system that eliminates the nooks and crannies (which are the seams) that leaves and debris can get trapped in, which reduces the risk of clogs forming. On the other hand, you have an overhead shield designed to stop debris from entering into a gutter. But in both cases, there was room for improvement—and that’s where LeafGuard® brand gutters come in.
LeafGuard’s mission is to take gutter protection from reducing the risk of clogs to eliminating it. Thanks to some creative engineering, its advanced gutter systems are guaranteed not to clog.
LeafGuard gutters are essentially a one-piece hybrid of seamless gutters and integrated gutter guards, but only meshed together after first improving both parts. The science at work here is simple, yet effective.
Have you ever noticed how water seems to cling to the hood of a car when you spray it down with a hose, even when it’s rolling off toward the ground? It’s not your imagination—the water really is sticking to the car, due to a scientific principle called liquid adhesion. Solid materials obviously don’t follow this principle. With all of this in mind, LeafGuard’s built-in gutter protection is designed to force rainwater to travel into the gutter while leaves and other solid things are forced to slide right off of it, guided only toward the ground below. And both the gutters and downspouts are wider and thicker than the industry standard, which allows for more rainfall to be caught and transported away from the home.
Built to Last
LeafGuard gutters aren’t made to be short-term solutions. These seamless gutter systems were designed for long-term use thanks to the following features:
- Heavy-duty aluminum construction 20% thicker than the industry standard
- Downspouts that are 30% larger than those of traditional gutters
- Troughs big enough to handle up to 32 inches of rainfall per hour
- A ScratchGuard® paint finish that protects against rotting, cracking, chipping, scratching, denting and peeling
- A mounting system that does not penetrate your roof (which would potentially void your warranty or create leaks)
