Rain-Flow Systems owner Chris Mussman provides the highest quality guttering and gutter protection products to Tulsa area residents.
According to Rain-Flow Systems, Inc. owner Chris Mussman, “Our customers have three main concerns when purchasing guttering or gutter protection products: price, appearance and warranty coverage. When a customer purchases a Rain-Flow guttering system or the Leaf Shield™ gutter protection product, they are getting the very best products available to satisfy all of their concerns.”
Rain-Flow has served Tulsa since 1970, and Chris Mussman has owned the company since 2005. He says that Rain-Flow has set the standard for seamless aluminum and copper guttering in the Tulsa area by providing the highest quality products and installation at an affordable cost, while remaining committed to a superior level of customer service and satisfaction.
Rain-Flow specializes in continuous rain guttering, or seamless guttering. Seamless guttering protects the beauty of your home and landscaping, and preserves flowerbeds and foundations by directing water flow away from the house. It can help prevent wood decay of soffits and fascia, as well as staining of siding and brick.
Rain-Flow provides a wide range of guttering options, colors and accessories that can be tailored to your needs. They offer seamless aluminum guttering in 25 baked enamel finishes that never need painting, and their 16-ounce copper seamless guttering can be patina treated for a unique aged look. Rain-Flow was the first to bring a guttering machine to Tulsa, which they did in 1970. The company’s total services include seamless aluminum guttering, seamless copper guttering, gutter protection systems, gutter cleaning and gutter repair.
After the installation of Leaf Shield, homeowners can enjoy clean gutters forever – and it’s guaranteed.
Leaf Shield is a solid aluminum cap that installs directly to existing gutters. The product features a unique design that is based on the scientific principle of liquid adhesion. As water flows over the Leaf Shield, the molecular attraction between metal and water causes the water to cling to the surface and follow the bends around the nose of the Leaf Shield, permitting water to drain into the gutters while leaves, pine needles and other debris fall to the ground.
Leaf Shield is constructed of .027 or .032 heavy gauge solid aluminum, thicker than other leading brands, according to Mussman. “It’s the heaviest gauge product on the market.” Leaf Shield is available in 35 colors, including copper, to match any roof and guttering combination. Leaf Shield installs on shingles, wood shakes, slate, tile and metal roofs. While most competitive products install under the second row of shingles, Leaf Shield installs under the first row of shingles, or it can be mounted to wood fascia. This translates to less product being visible from ground level. The product works with any roof pitch, and its one-piece end cap is designed to keep out birds and squirrels. It has been tested to handle up to 11 inches of rainfall per hour. And best of all, Leaf Shield is installed with a Lifetime Gutter Protection Warranty.
According to Mussman, Leaf Shield will save you money by preventing rotting eaves, interior mold and mildew, water damage to insulation, eroded landscaping, flooded basements, and ice dams in gutters. In short, Leaf Shield protects your biggest investment, your home.
Each fall, most of us fear climbing ladders to clean gutters and face the smell of rotting leaves and whatever else we may find in our guttering. By installing Leaf Shield, you can kiss that fear goodbye forever.
