South Bend Indiana Needle Guard Gutter Guard Project

Location: 21450 Kern Road, South Bend IN 46614

Products Installed: Needle Guard Gutter Guards


Dennison Exterior Solutions & Gutter Topper as gutter guard contractors in South Bend Indiana recommended to this homeowner that we install the Needle Guard gutter covers which is part of the Gutter Topper guard family of gutter protection products made and manufactured within the United States of America.

We recommended the installation of the Needle Guard gutter guards based on several environmental reasons and since this application was on a new pole barn that had a metal roof not to mention the some pine trees in the vicinity.

Prior to the installation of the Needle Guard gutter covers we installed new custom seamless gutter and downspout with the color matching the existing red trim on the pole barn.


Dennison Exterior Solutions
Custom Seamless Gutters & Downspouts

Dennison Exterior Solutions & Gutter Toppers our seamless gutter aluminum coil has a thickness of .027 and is custom formed at your home using our IronMan K-style aluminum extruding seamless gutter machine. Lengths of seamless aluminum
gutters can be run-out to custom fit your homes specifications. Whether it’s a one foot section of gutter or 100 feet or more there are no seams between the end caps or corners.

Dennison Exterior Solutions as seamless gutter contractors we understand how important that the seamless gutters and downspouts blend in with the beauty of your home. That is why we carry over 75 different colors to match your roof, fascia,
trim, siding or brick on your home. With being able to have access to this many colors allows us for example to have the seamless gutters match the fascia on your home while the downspouts may match the color of your walls so that they blend in
and are not as noticeable.

Our five-inch seamless gutters are attached with #12 built-in deck screws, which is 25 percent heavier, and features Speed Coating. This quick-screw system allows our installers to find the rafter-tails behind the fascia boards so that the entire screw is
anchored to wood.


Dennison Exterior Solutions uses clear 50 Year service life Sealants have a superior ultraviolet resistance which can be applied in any temperature and has an excellent adhesion properties.

In addition, all of the seamless aluminum accessories that Dennison Exterior Solutions uses are manufactured using quality .027 aluminum such as End Caps, Inside & Outside Miters, Bay Window Miters including our Downspout Tubes which
come in lengths of 10 feet and will be custom cut and installed to meet your homes specifications. Downspouts Tubes may also include “A” and “B” Elbows as well as Offsets with hidden downspout mounting brackets or straps.


Dennison Exterior Solutions also uses ¼ inch drive stainless steel zip screws that will not rust instead of using pop rivets which require those fasteners to be drilled out in case there is a need for a repair. With the zip screws we simply unscrew thefasteners, make the repairs and refasten eliminating unsightly holes that may leak.

While the Needle Guard gutter cover was specifically engineered to be installed over your existing gutters in this case since this was what we call a new construction project wherein the pole was just recently build and this would be the first and last application of seamless gutters on this building Dennison Exterior Solutions recommends that we replace your gutters if your current gutter system was originally installed with the outdated spike and ferrule fastener system as those systems are almost impossible to be adjusted for proper drainage.

If your existing gutter system is in relatively good shape Dennison Exterior Solutions & Gutter Toppers installation methods includes a Gutter Tuneup that includes “dry” cleaning out your existing gutters, repitching them where and if they need to be and resealing any leaking seams that the homeowner points out to us. This fee also includes taking over responsibility for your existing gutter system as well if the system is relatively new so that you won’t have to call the original gutter company. We also specialize in installing new seamless aluminum gutters and downspouts as well if you need new gutters.

Why is the Needle Guard in this case Superior when Compared to other Gutter Covers?

While there are many gutter guard systems on the market today only the Needle Guard was specifically designed to handle pine needles. Pine needles have always been a problem for gutter protection products – until now! Their small size would slip through the cracks and prevent the gutter protection system from working properly.

The Needle Guard was specifically designed to combat the problems caused by pine needles. Micro-perforations allow the rainwater to enter the gutter, while at the same time, keeping the pine needles from clogging up the system.

Homeowners have been looking for a cost effective, hassle-free way to eliminate the clogs that pine needles can cause in their gutter systems. But at the same time, they wanted a product that would stand up to everything Mother Nature could throw at it. The Needle Guard can handle 17” of rainfall per hour. That’s 34 feet of rain in one day! And because of the heavy gauge aluminum from which the product is manufactured, you can be sure it will stand up to heavy snow and ice.

The Needle Guard installs over your existing gutters and actually strengthens your gutter system. It looks great with any type of roof and fits 5” and 6” gutters.
How the Needle Guard Keeps You Safe!

The Needle Guard is a permanent solution to having to constantly climb dangerous
rickety old ladders putting your health at risk to keep you gutters clean.

Every year, over 100,000 homeowners fall from ladders and are seriously
injured. Many fall from heights as low as 10 feet and spend an average of
$4,000 on hospital co-pays, prescription drugs, lost wages, and physical
therapy. *

Ask yourself, is it worth the risk?

* The Needle Guard costs less than this to install on an average single-story home

* There could be additional long-term health effects resulting from the fall
Safety is one of the smartest reasons for installing Gutter Topper on your home.
