While there was much to appreciate about Larry’s Stillwater, MN home, including its sprawling 2.5 acre lot with mature trees and spacious floorplan, a persistent issue had been the condition and functionality of its gutters. Built in 1991, the gutters that had been originally installed on it were builder grade. This had made them prone to clogging. In the winter months, the gutters iced up over the front door, creating a safety hazard. In some areas, the poorly installed gutters were even causing wood rot on the siding. Wanting to resolve these issues for good, Larry opted to have LeafGuard® Brand Gutters installed on his home. Here’s why this proved to be such an advantageous decision.
Clog-Free Guarantee: The height of Larry’s home made gutter maintenance a treacherous undertaking. He appreciated the fact that LeafGuard® Brand Gutters are accompanied with a clog-free guarantee that stipulates that if the gutters ever do clog, our technicians will be the ones addressing the issue. Even more appealing is that this warranty transfers to the next owners of Larry’s home, should he ever decide to sell. Clog-free gutters also ensure that the siding, soffit, and fascia of Larry’s home will be protected from wood rot.
Oversize Trough: The seamless aluminum trough of LeafGuard® Brand Gutters is significantly larger than those found in ordinary gutters. This is a large reason why the Good Housekeeping Institute has certified them to handle over 32 inches of rain in an hour. This is a major reason why LeafGuard® Brand Gutters outperform basic gutter systems that have smaller dimensions.

Custom Design: One of the most appealing features of LeafGuard® Brand Gutters is that they are custom manufactured for the home they are installed on. This allowed Larry to select from an attractive assortment of colors. In addition, the downspout placement, length, and configuration are all created to the homeowner’s specifications. This was particularly advantageous for Larry, as his previous downspouts were creating a substantial patch of ice near his home’s front door.
Sturdiness: Intended to be the last gutters a homeowner needs, LeafGuard® Brand Gutters are comprised of aluminum that’s 20% thicker than the industry standard. To ensure the gutters remain affixed to a home’s fascia board, they are supported every two feet, which is twice the industry standard. This allows them to maintain their integrity during Minnesota’s extreme weather pattern fluctuations.
