Unsightly Gutters Leave a First-Time Homeowner Frustrated
A first-time homeowner came to LeafCo Gutters, after seeing their positive reviews, with concerns about the gutters on her new home. The copper gutters on her historic Oak Park property had been carelessly installed and looked as though they were barely hanging on.
Plus the once-gleaming copper gutters had been painted white but were now dingy, dull, and packed with leaves, pine needles, and debris from her heavily wooded lot. They required tons of maintenance with absolutely no aesthetic payoff. She needed a budget-friendly option that would allow her the freedom to make other improvements and renovations to her new home.
Sleek New Gutters and Gutter Guards Mean Zero Maintenance
Because the home’s existing copper gutters were not the look the homeowner desired, the LeafCo Gutters team helped her select black seamless aluminum gutters and downspouts for a cleaner, more streamlined look. To eliminate any time-consuming maintenance, our homeowner also opted for Klean Gutter leaf guards to keep her gutters and downspouts free from leaves, vegetation, and other debris that would lead to clogs and water damage.
The historic Oak Park home was designed with a very large overhang, which made it difficult for the previous contractor to install the old gutters. Because of this, the underlying fascia board paint had chipped away. The LeafCo team painted the fascia black to match the look of the new gutters for a more elegant appearance.
A Stunning Transformation
While our homeowner was initially nervous about the investment she was making in her home and the removal of the poorly installed original copper gutters, she was thrilled with the outcome of the project and the responsiveness of the LeafCo Gutters team. She is also delighted to have a maintenance-free solution to keep her home protected from the elements so she can enjoy her new home for years to come.
