We had leafguard installed on our newly constructed house 6 years ago in the Seattle area. Service was fine, but be sure to read the warranty... It is guaranteed not to clog, which it never has... but the problem is all the pollen, pine needles, etc. that collect on the top of the gutter and then interfere with the water tension. The result is the water drips (in heavy rain it is like a waterfall) over the front side of the gutter making them useless. So they do not clog, but we have to clean the outside of them twice a year. I was shocked when I saw they had earhed a Good Housekeeping seal of approval since I would not recommend this product.

We had leaf guard installed, it keeps the leafs out and also keeps most of the water out of the guttering. We have a metal roof and when it rains hard the water goes off the guttering like it is not even there. I told the installer that it was going off the roof like there was no gutter there. It does not work on a metal roof that have a slightly pitched roof. No wonder they have so many complaints. Why have gutters that do not collect the water?? Allen Phifer

leaf guard NO GOOD!!! since having leaf guard system installed on my house 2 years ago nothing but PROBLEMS. in heavy rain the water goes off the roof as if there are no gutters at all and in the winter look forward to icicles 3-4 feet long.if your roof has little pitch you can also expect ice dams with water finding its way inside your house! i see a load of complaints on line but no CLASS ACTION SUIT?DONT WAIST YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON LEAF GUARD GUTTERS ! they are very expensive and a complete waste.

We have been stuck with out LeafGuard gutters for many years. Guaranteed NEVER to clog? I just spent another hour unclogging them again. We have called to have LeafGuard come and unclog them many times and each time I have to laugh. All they do is remove the downspouts, take your garden hose and rinse them. The pollen and dirt clog the "traps" at the bottom of the downspouts and frequently a fir cone will get inside and really dam things up. If you don't power wash them a couple times a year the pollen and other crud breaks the water cohesion and the water just pours over the top without going into the gutter. Their worst "repair" of a frequently clogging area was to take tin snips and cut the side out of the gutter so it would drain onto the patio roof. A TOTAL WAST OF GOOD DOLLARS FOR TOTALLY CRUMBY SERVICE.

what makes me fell that the Leaf Guard product is a scam is the fat guy that advertises it on Charlotte NC TV. I feel like he is stroking me every time that I see the advertising. He goes after the elderly, the bastard, Someone please stop this company

I also had these installed about 1 year ago. I do agree they do not clog but I am from Weymouth Mass and this past winter was really bad for us here. The snow that built up on my roof and the ice when it melted off the roof it damaged a whole section off of my 3 season porch. I called leaf guard to have them come out to replace that section. I had an appointment for yesterday May 26th before 3 pm. By 3:45 no one showed up or called and then on TV there it was the ad for leaf guard so I called them again. The man said I should of gotten a call saying they could not make it for yesterday, which no one called for I was home all day. I told them if I did not get a call back by noon today May 27th I was going to go on line and give them a bad name for not following up with their customers and not calling people back after waiting all day for someone to show up.
I have still not gotten a call and it is now 1:07 pm on Wednesday May 27th. I am so fed up with them that I would not recommend then to anyone. When I got them they showed up right away and installed them and got the whole amount of 5, 000.00 dollars for my whole house which is a single home. It is amazing how fast they were for that but when you need them for replacements or something is wrong no one calls or shows up.

Boy was I sold!!! now I'm told that my small print multi page contract provide a provision for additional charges to fix what was suppose to be a real solution, instead I have damage to the side of my home. It took me two years to save up the moneys the first time and then I didn't have the medical issues I have today. I'm a disabled person who had one very shrewd sales guy tell me that all needed was what I got. Now they want me to spend an addition $150.00 to fix what never should have happened - even the guy that came out to cleaned gutters commented that they should have seen the problem before it began to overflow next to my home. If he knew it why didn't the "knowledgeable" sales guy for these folks know it. Just another bunch of siding sales people. Just BEWARE OF THE SMALL PRINT. Buyer beware... I don't have a clue where I can come up with the money at this point. The Shelby County Sherriff's Department should look into these folks for taking advantage of a foolish trust elderly person.
