Frequently Asked Questions About K-Guard Leaf Free Gutters
A simple fascia build-out could be performed on your home to enable a K-Guard system to be installed. For further information, consult your local dealer.
No. K-Guard attaches to existing or installed fascia board below your existing roof. A K-Guard installation will not affect your roof, except to provide superior protection against ice damming and blowback.
Most conventional gutters are hung too close to the roof line to allow room for any sort of cover to fit correctly. Due to this height problem, some add-on products are often attached into or over existing shingles, potentially voiding your roof warranty. Plus, if you’re going to need to move or replace your gutters to allow an add-on product to fit correctly, why not just invest in a new and complete covered gutter system? Because K-Guard was designed and built as a complete and fully engineered leaf-free gutter system, you can be guaranteed that all of its components integrate correctly to provide exceptional performance.
K-Guard was fully engineered as an integrated leaf-free gutter system from the ground up. No other system can offer the complete range of benefits that K-Guard provides.
- A full, 5-inch wide gutter (same capacity as standard, k-style gutters)
- A 3-1/4-inch wide gutter bottom to accommodate 3×4-inch downspout
- Our patented hangers fully support our gutter from front to back
- Angled hanger design for added leverage and strength
- Front and rear drainage passages for improved water collecting
- A smooth, attractive design
- A convenient, removable hood
Yes. The K-Guard system is extremely effective at keeping leaves and debris out of the gutter. Our system is backed up with 3×4 inch downspouts that help flush out any small pieces of debris that may occasionally enter the gutter. In the unlikely event that your K-Guard system ever does develop a clog, for any reason, your installer will come to your home and remedy the problem – absolutely free. All warranties are offered through our dealers. For more information, ask your local dealer about the warranties offered on the system and its materials.
Computer-based engineering studies have been conducted to determine the overall strength of the K-Guard system. Here are the impressive results:
- The system can support vertical loads on the front of the gutter of 35 lbs per foot of gutter. That equals 70 lbs per installed hanger.
- The hood can support 60 lbs per square foot of pressure, both in load and uplift, before any flexing of the hood will occur.
There is really no limit to the life span of this system. The coatings on the gutter and hood will easily last 20 years, the base materials will not corrode, and the internal hangers (which are protected from the elements by the gutter and hood) will last almost indefinitely.

What Our Clients Say About Us
Bill and his crew arrived at about 9 AM. They jumped right into it and I was very happy with their effort. When they had finished, Bill asked me to come out for a look see. Again, I was very happy with the job they did.
– John B.
Bill and his crew arrived right on time and immediately set to work. Our house is not the easiest project because of steep angles and “inconveniently” placed landscaping. His crew even had to improvise some scaffolding to complete one section. They did a great job and cleaned everything up when they finished. You couldn’t tell they were even here. I highly recommend CVG.
