Every once in a while there comes an invention that makes us wonder how we ever lived without it. Gutter guards are one of those inventions because they eliminate the need for you to ever have to clean out your gutters again—or to pay someone else to do it. This in turn eliminates a whole host of problems related to clogged gutters, including mosquito-attracting standing water and water-damaged rooflines, among other common issues. Instead, a gutter protection system will allow your gutters to funnel water away from your house year-round—without any of the common impedances. By opting for a gutter guard protection system, you also won’t have to worry about hiring someone to clean out your gutters, during which they’ll dump piles of decaying leaves and sticks into your yard, porch, and onto your HVAC unit.
At The Gutter Man we recommend to our Nashville customers the installation of either the K-Guard gutter protection system or the SafeGuard gutter guard system. We have years of experience with these products, which are made respectively of aluminum and stainless steel (won’t warp in the sun) and come with a 20-year no clog warranty.
About SafeGuard Gutter Guards
Want to make your existing gutters essentially maintenance free from here on out? You’ll want to consider having The Gutter Man install SafeGuard gutter guards. These guards are low profile so they won’t affect your home’s aesthetic, and they can fit onto almost any existing gutter system. Plus, installation is relatively simple, so that we won’t first have to remove your gutters.
If you live in the Nashville, TN area and hire The Gutter Man to install SafeGuard gutter guards, we will first thoroughly inspect and clean your gutters, both inside and out. We will also “recondition” your gutters, which just means that we’ll do any necessary repairs including caulking them and making sure they are secured to your home. At that point, we will begin our quick installation of the guards. Read more about SafeGuard here.
About the K-Guard Leaf Free Gutter System
As opposed to the SafeGuard guards, which fit over your existing gutters, the K-Guard system is a complete system that includes both gutters and guards. We generally recommend the K-Guard system to our Nashville customers whose gutters are in very bad condition and who need new gutters anyway. According to K-Guard, “The lifespan of the K-Guard system is practically unlimited. Made of heavy-duty aluminum, the base material will not corrode. The coatings on the gutter and hood will last over 20 years, and the patented hangers give our gutters the strength to withstand virtually any weather conditions.”
K-Guard’s five-inch wide gutters are designed to drain more water than traditional systems and come with larger-than-usual downspouts so that any debris that does manage to get into the system is easily flushed out. Read more about K-Guard here.
Please feel free to ask The Gutter Man about either the K-Guard or SafeGuard systems. We’re happy to suggest the best system for you and your home.
