LeafGuard Gutters of St. Cloud Case Studies: Custom Downspouts

Challenge

Connecting gutter runs from different roof elevations can be tricky. Our representatives have to take into consideration keeping everything water tight, water diverted far enough away from the home foundation, while maintaining a seamless; blended in gutter system.

Solution

To connect the upper gutter section to the lower section, our technicians first used a “B” elbow to keep the “crossover” or “crosspipe” going towards the corner post trim. Another “B” elbow was used to keep the downspout extension flush down to the end of the trim. To run another downspout extension to the lower run, Dustin and Jamie used an “A” elbow and inserted that into the lower gutter trough cover. (Before installing the lower gutter section, a hand made cut was performed by Dustin to snugly fit the “A” elbow and remain watertight.)

Water can freely move through the top gutter section to the lower gutter section, through the lower downspout and away from the home foundation. A hinge kicker or “tip-up” was also installed on the lower downspout for easy lawn maintenance. It can be tipped and clipped out of the way!

Our Sales Representative, Brian, measured the exact lengths needed for the gutter runs, connecting downspouts and evaluated which LeafGuard® elbows were needed for a blended in look!

“We were not at home when our gutters were installed. We couldn't even tell they had been there - perfect cleanup. The salesman was prompt, courteous and very knowledgeable. Excellent product and previous experience with the installers is what made us choose LeafGuard again.”

“Sabrina was so helpful finding a good time for someone to come give me an estimate. She gave me a small timeframe to expect their rep and Jay showed up as expected. He was very knowledgeable and took the time to explain to me how LeafGuard would solve my problems. I can’t wait to have my new gutters installed!”

“New gutters do a phenomenal job of capturing water and keeping leaves out. The installation crew that stopped out were fantastic and very professional! ”

“The gutters really compliment my home exterior. LeafGuard was able to match the color of the gutters to my fascia and downspouts to my siding.”

“My friend had a great experience with LeafGuard so I decided to call and book an appointment. I have a lot of trees in my yard and was sold on the fact I would never have to clean my gutters again. They also have an awesome referral program; my friend got $50.00 for referring me!”
