LeafGuard Gutters of St. Cloud Case Studies: Zulawski’s LeafGuard Gutter Project
This gorgeous log home in Oak Park, MN, received a major upgrade with the LeafGuard Gutter System! Before tackling such a big project, there were a few things that needed to be considered.
The home has an angled fascia which doesn’t offer a flat and secure foundation for any gutter system to be attached to.
One portion of the home has an octagon roofline, with a lot of angles for the gutters to follow.
Under the octagon roofline, is a wood deck. Constant moisture or standing water on wood can eventually lead to warping, rotting, deterioration, and potentially costly repairs!
With the use of our patented LeafGuard gutters and accessories, our technicians were able to install a custom fit to the home and properly defend the home from moisture exposure.
Before hanging LeafGuard gutters on the home, our technicians fitted the fascia boards with aluminum custom bent j-channel. J-channel is exactly what it sounds like; a length of aluminum bent into the shape of the letter J. It is anchored to the fascia and creates a flat stable surface for the gutters to be received and attached to. After installing the j-channel- the roofline was ready for the gutters to be securely installed.
Following the roof angles, our LeafGuard strip miters hand-cut to the perfect size and installed on the turns; to interlink the gutters seamlessly while remaining water-tight!
Ensuring that water was kept off the wood deck while keeping walkways clear, the downspout was brought down to the ground through a pre-cut hole in the deck boards. The 9′ extension was inserted into the previously installed underground drain tile. Water run-off is dispelled from the trough to the downspout and dispersed through the drain tile.
The homeowners are ecstatic with the clean look and peace of mind their home is protected from water damage for many years to come!
