Seamless Gutters Case Studies: Replacing Rotted out Soffit & Fascia and LeafGuard Gutter Installation

Monday, November 19th, 2018 by Sabrina Pincombe


Customer had contacted LeafGuard of South Dakota after seeing our TV advertisement showing the amazing features that LeafGuard has to offer. We set an appointment for our expert Jeff Knopf to come assess the home and give a free quote. After measuring and evaluating the home, he discovered the wood soffit and fascia on the home was rotted out; and needed to be replaced before gutters could be installed.

Wood fascia is very common on older homes. With small (debris clogged) 4" k style gutters and 2x3 downspouts, water would overfiow onto the s&f which contributed to the eventual rotting and deterioration.

LeafGuard Gutters are attached to the fascia board. Installing gutters to rotted fascia would not help the homeowner in any way; the system would eventually fall off. It could also potentially lead to further water damage.

Jeff Knopf went over the issues with the homeowner and came up with a proposal that the homeowners were comfortable with. 



Our lead technicians, Jason & Travis, removed and disposed the wood soffit & fascia around the home. Before they installed the aluminum soffit & fascia, J channel needed to be added to support the new fascia board and conceal the edges where the fascia and soffit meet. 

They installed 6" aluminum soffit and fascia around the entire home.

LeafGuard Gutters were then attached to the fascia with high density plastic brackets. Plastic brackets are better than commonly used galvanized steel brackets, as they do eventually corrode and deteriorate from constant moisture exposure. 

The end result is a completely watertight gutter system that blends right into the home. The homeowners are very satisfied with the end result and knowing they are covered for life with the LeafGuard warranty and guarantees!
