For many homeowners, shopping for leafless gutters can be a daunting task.  Rain gutters come in a variety of sizes and the size you select for your home should be reflective of your roof’s surface area.  One of the biggest cost-saving measures that can blow up in a homeowner’s face is opting for too small of gutters.  Less material equates to a lower gutter cost.  However, during torrential rains, too small of gutters result in water overflowing.  The problem with this scenario is that this water can destroy landscaping and cause water to pool near your foundation.  With enough rain, undersized gutters can leave you with a flooded basement.  Reliable gutter professionals understand that gutter size should be determined relative to the roof’s surface area.

LP® SmartSide® prefinished with Diamond Kote® & LeafGuard® Brand Gutters proved to be a winning combination.

LeafGuard® Brand Gutters are custom-made for each home they are installed on.  Their oversized six inch gutter design and three inch by four downspouts lead the industry in size.  The utilization of these downspouts, guaranteed to be clog-free, guarantees that water is filtered away from the home in a controlled manner.
