The Process of Professional LeafGuard Installation
High-Quality Gutters to Improve Your Home
One of the things we pride ourselves on at LeafGuard of South Carolina is our ability to provide high-quality gutters for your at your convenience. We know that many homeowners have busy schedules and can’t wait around all day for an installation crew to arrive. This is why we schedule an installation time that is convenient for you. Our punctual installers will arrive at the designated time and start by taking the exact measurements needed and prepare your home for the new gutter installation. After the preparatory work is done, we roll-form your new LeafGuard gutter system right in front of your home using our “factory on wheels”. This greatly reduces the time of production and eliminates any chance of having ill-fitting gutters on your home.
Our Gutter Installation Process:
- Preparation & Measuring: We come to your residence and remove your existing gutter system, if there is one. Upon removal, our team of experts will take the exact measurements needed for your new gutter system and repair any minor damage to your fascia so that it is ready to support your new gutter system.
- On-Site Formation: Our extrusion process uses one piece of heavy-duty aluminum to create a perfectly formed seamless gutter with a built-in hood. We use the measurements of your home during the on-site formation to ensure an absolute fit of your new gutter system.
- Internal Bracket System: Once the gutter system is formed, we insert non-corrosive brackets into the gutter. These brackets are spaced every two feet apart to provide optimal support to the structure. After they are in place, we cap the ends of the gutter so water can’t leak out.
- Screwed on Installation: After assembly is completed, we screw the system directly to your home’s fascia board. Unlike the nails or spikes other contractors use, screws secure the gutters so they can’t sag or pull away. Additionally, we apply the screws above the water line so the water can’t seep into the fascia and cause wood rot.
A Gutter System with Enduring Life
After the installation of your new LeafGuard gutter system is finished, you’ll have the benefit of enjoying a low-maintenance lifestyle in which you’ll never have to worry about gutter maintenance again. Our gutters also give your home a beautiful new look that will last for years, which ensured by the application of ScratchGuard® paint finish. ScratchGuard® protects the paint of your gutters from chips, scratches, and peeling.
