Steps to Installing Gutter Protection and Leaf Filters

Our team of local gutter guard installers is highly trained and experienced in the techniques required to install lasting gutter protection. Here are the steps our professionals will take to protect your gutters and home:

  • Custom fabricate our Gutter Cap system for your home, so that it is an exact match for your gutters, including the tricky corners and joints that most systems simply cannot protect.
  • Loosen second row of roofing shingles so that our system fits in seamlessly and without potential leakage once installed.
  • Insert Gutter Cap panels into place, ensuring a perfect overhang to protect your gutters from leaves and debris while allowing adequate drainage. The devil is in the details here, and less experienced installers can miss slightly, reducing your home’s protection!
  • Mount panels with structural screws so that high winds and rough weather cannot dislodge the system.
  • Invite you out to have a look at your beautiful new gutter guards! Our system is highly effective and low-profile, matching perfectly with your existing home design.
  • Why Choose Professional Leaf Filter Installation?

    With solutions available at the hardware store or big box store, why should you opt for professional gutter guard installation? There are several reasons. Like any DIY home improvement project, you are relying on your own skill to get the job done right. There are aspects you may find unpleasant to installing gutter guards, such as operating power tools while balancing on a ladder, that our team of professional installers don’t mind at all. The detail work to ensure that your gutter guard is effective also requires expertise, as the difference between proper and improper installation can be as little as a half-inch of extra space.

    Most of all, you want to have full confidence in your gutter protection system. If you install your system yourself, you will only know if you made a mistake when you notice a problem. A clogged gutter can cause very costly problems, so why not choose peace of mind and professional gutter guard installation?

    How Gutter Cap Works

    Gutter Cap installs over the first row of shingles and gutter.  The majority of debris is pushed off by the wind.  The remainder is flushed off through the principle of surface tension.  Rainwater adheres to the Gutter Cap and drains into the gutter while the debris falls to the ground.

    The Gutter Cap Advantage

    There is consumer awareness that metal dome gutter protection systems are the most effective.  Gutter Cap takes the design even further with a fully rounded nose, and a patented trough system.  Gutter Cap has an installation training facility available in Chicago.  All installers that have passed the rigorous training course become factory certified.

    Gutter Cap Installation

    Gutter Cap can be installed on almost any type of roof, shingle type, and pitch from flat roofs to mansards.  The patented design allows gutter cap to mount directly to the lip of the gutter without the use of clumsy brackets or clips.  The panel follows the contour of the roof and blends in with the roofline making it practically invisible.
