Ben & Joanna’s LeafGuard® Gutter Project in Minneapolis
Located in Southwest Minneapolis, the Fulton neighborhood is a tight-knit community with a historic disposition. It was the summer of 2013 when Ben & Joanna moved into their house within this neighborhood. They appreciated the property’s close proximity to Pershing Park, Lake Harriet, and the France business district. As they settled into their home, one area they noticed that needed improvement was their gutters. They were undersized for the roof’s surface area and were doing a poor job of protecting the home’s stucco siding. In addition, the stately neighborhood trees that lost their leaves each fall made the home’s second level gutters susceptible to clogging. Wanting a permanent solution to these issues the couple turned to us to learn more about the LeafGuard® Brand Gutter System.
Here are the Aspects of the LeafGuard® Brand Gutter System They Appreciated:
Great for Stucco Homes: The lifespan of stucco siding can be dramatically reduced if it repeatedly comes in contact with heavy rainfall. In Ben & Joanna’s case, they were noticing cracking near the home’s foundation which was likely the result of their current gutters being limited by size. This resulted in gutter overflow which caused water to splash up against their home’s foundation. The problem was so severe that stucco on the foundation had become water stained. We assured them that the Good Housekeeping Institute has certified LeafGuard® Brand Gutters to be able to handle more than 32 inches of rain in an hour.
Aesthetics: It can be a challenge to conduct exterior upgrades to a historic home without negatively impacting the property’s curb appeal. LeafGuard® Brand Gutters have the look of crown molding, allowing them to enhance the appearance of a home. In addition, they are offered in an array of colors, to allow homeowners to select the option best suited for their home. Ben and Joanna opted for white LeafGuard® Brand Gutters with ivory downspouts to match their home’s exterior color palette.
Clog-Free Guarantee: Preferring to spend their weekends golfing, exploring new restaurants, or traveling, they were delighted to hear that if their LeafGuard® Brand Gutters ever clog, our team will come out and clean them free of charge. Should they ever choose to sell their home, this warranty transfers to the next homeowners.
