When it comes to rain gutters, size truly does matter. Gutters that are five inches or smaller are prone to clogging. Clogs are a problem because they cause water to spill over the sides of the gutter and near your foundation. This can result in landscape erosion and wet basements. In addition, gutters that are too small can overflow with rainwater. For our client Tim, the size of his 1960’s home’s rain gutters proved problematic because they were too small to correctly divert water away. Here’s why he made the switch to LeafGuard® Brand Gutters.
Size: LeafGuard® Brand Gutters are six inches in diameter. This is superior to smaller gutters because it allows LeafGuard® to take in large volumes of water, avoiding issues with overflowing. To complete the system, LeafGuard® utilizes larger than normal downspouts which ensure that the water can be efficiently filtered away from a home. Larger downspouts also alleviate the concern of clogging.
Lifetime No Clog Warranty: With the installation of LeafGuard® Brand Gutters, Tim experienced the ultimate peace of mind. Not only are they covered by Lindus Construction’s Lifetime Workmanship Guaranteed, but they also come with a Lifetime No Clog Warranty. This means if they do clog, it will be our technicians addressing the issue, not Tim. Even more appealing is that should Tim ever choose to sell his home, this warranty extends to the next owner of his home.
Seamless Design: Gutters that are manufactured in sections come with seams. Over time, gutters that have multiple joints can weaken when exposed to nature’s elements. When the seams weaken, they leak. This allows rainwater to splash near a home’s foundation. Over time, this can wash away landscaping and create a wet basement. LeafGuard® Brand Gutters are custom-made for each home they are installed on. This allows them to be manufactured in the exact sizes needed for a home. This equates to no seams. Unlike seamed systems, LeafGuard® Gutters do not have the worry of cracking and leaking.
Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval: LeafGuard® Brand Gutters are backed by the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval. This distinction was awarded after six weeks of rigorous lab testing at the Good Housekeeping Institute. During the lab testing the Good Housekeeping Institute certified that LeafGuard® Brand Gutters could handle more than 32 inches of rain in an hour. This is three times more than the heaviest rainfall ever recorded by the US Weather Bureau. This means that even in the heaviest of rainstorms, Tim’s home is fully protected from water damage caused by faulty gutters.

After his project was completed, Tim left us the following online review, “Lindus installed their LeafGuard® Gutters. Workers were on site as scheduled and completed the job within the time frame as contracted. Workers were very careful around landscaping during install and they cleaned up thoroughly. Very professional workmanship. No debris was found around our home or yard. Most impressive was the follow-up inspection to confirm that gutters installed to drain properly.”
