We do things differently at K-Guard especially when it comes to gutter installation versus other gutter options. The post below summarizes why that is critical when it comes to home maintenance. Where is the Floodplain for my Gutter? Think of a traditional gutter that is overflowing with water. That “top” is essentially the plain where water will discharge in the event the gutter becomes clogged. K-Guard is installed above the floodplain which eliminates the possibility of gutter separation from the fascia board and soffit. You can see a video demonstration of this here in section comparing K-Guard vs. Traditional Gutters.
