LeafGuard Gutters of St. Cloud Case Studies: Custom LeafGuard® Installation Bemidji Minnesota
The home has 2 different roof elevations straight up and down from each other. Placing a downspout from the highest roof elevation, down to the ground by the egress window, would not be an ideal situation to keep potential water run off from entering the basement.
Our sales representative, Kevin Feldewerd, stopped out to evaluate the property and discuss the homeowners current issues and concerns. He drew up a proposal that the homeowner was comfortable with and accepted.
Sections of LeafGuard Gutters connected to different roof elevations made possible with custom downspouts using our patented LeafGuard “A & B” elbows.
The main concern was to ensure water could be routed from the multiple rooflines and dispersed far enough away from the home foundation and egress window.
Our sales representative, Kevin, devised a plan using “B” LeafGuard® elbows to connect LeafGuard® downspout extensions from one roof elevation to the other. From the highest roofline, a “B” elbow was used to bring the crossover to the side with another “B” elbow to run the 3′ downspout extension down, flush with the siding. Another “B” elbow was used at the end of the 3′ extension with another 1′ extension added. Another “B” elbow was used to insert into a pre cut out LeafGuard® hood.
Water run off from the highest roof line now enters through that LeafGuard® gutter section, down the custom extension, to the lowest roofline. It flows through the lowest sections “L” shape and out the downspout pictured. The downspout was inserted into a black 4″ LeafGuard® Drain Tile Adapter and into previously installed underground drain tile.
No more worries of water entering the basement through the egress window or because of a completely soaked foundation. The end result is a functional, watertight system with a blended in look.
