Project Description

Marc’s LeafGuard® Gutter Project in West Des Moines, Iowa

Pooling Water in West Des Moines

Marc and his wife reside in a newly built, 2-year-old ranch style home in West Des Moines, Iowa. They called us with concern about their current gutter system when Marc noticed pooling water around his foundation. He was surprised and worried that he was having to deal with gutter issues on such a new build and wanted to prevent and protect his new investment. After speaking with him about his concerns, we sent one of our home solution experts out to his home for a free inspection.

During the inspection, we found that the standard 4-inch contractor-grade gutters and downspouts were too small for the size of his roof. When downpours occurred, and Iowa experienced a hand full this summer, the gutters were unable to handle the amount of rain coming off of the roof causing an overflow.
