A unifying characteristic of the homes in the Chowen neighborhood of Edina is that they were built in the late 1940s and early 1950s. This classification held true for Shirley’s home, which was built in 1951. The Chowen neighborhood made an ideal place for her to live because of its natural beauty. Situated in this neighborhood are two parks, Minnehaha Creek, and several stately trees. While the trees in Shirley’s yard were a thing of beauty, they proved problematic each fall. As the temperatures began to drop, so did the leaves from the property’s mature trees. It wasn’t long before her open style gutters began to clog. Adding to the issue was the small size of the home’s preexisting gutters, which raised the probability of overflows during wind driven rain. Although uncertain how long she’d continue to reside at her current address, she was committed to a long-term solution that would address the aforementioned issues. Here’s how LeafGuard® Brand Gutters were the ideal choice for Shirley’s home and garage.
Clog-Free Guarantee: One of the reasons LeafGuard® Brand Gutters have been awarded the prestigious Good Housekeeping Seal is that they’re the only patented, one-piece system never to clog or the installing contractor cleans them free of charge. The gutters are manufactured with a state-of-the art curved hood. Its primary function is to curtail leaves and organic debris from infiltrating the gutter’s bottom, which is a major reason inferior systems clog.
Oversized Design: The Good Housekeeping Institute certified LeafGuard® Brand Gutters to handle over 32 inches of rain within an hour. This is largely in part to the system’s generous dimensions that include spacious 3” x 4” downspouts. This design feature ensures that rainwater can quickly and effectively be filtered away from the home’s foundation.

Iron-Clad Warranties: Each customer that invests in a LeafGuard® system receives a lifetime workmanship guarantee that applies to all facets of the gutter installation. In addition, the exterior ScratchGuard® paint finish is accompanied with a warranty that covers the finish chipping, cracking, or peeling. The most attractive aspect of these warranties is that they are good not only for the current homeowner, but transfer to the next owner of the home.
Upon conclusion of her project, Shirley left us the following online review, “The workers came to install the day following delivery of the materials. The two young men worked well together, were very efficient and knowledgeable of their product and the installation requirements. It was obvious they knew their job and didn’t rest until it was finished.”
