Worse experience, problem after problem, not happy - LeafFilter North review

A salesman came to my house and did a demonstration and after working the numbers and being convinced that I would never need to climb a ladder again,

I spent $6,500 without getting any benefits. As matter of fact, when the first rain came I noticed water running over the top of the gutter and leaking every gutter corners, it's getting worse than before it was installed.

I paid a large sum of money and the water is going to ruin everything around my house (especially the woods and sidings). Why even have gutters. I regret it so much and I want my money back. They can take the Leaf Filter back, I don't' want it!

It is worthless. I WOULD NEVER recommend Leaf Filter to anyone period.

While I have no issues with the installation or results of the LEAFFILTER SYSTEM, I do take issue with the cost. When the sales person came and measured my home and explained how the system works, he then gave me a quote of $8000., when I told him I had to discuss it with my wife and son, he came down to $5060.

and I foolishly agreed. After the installation I called my insurance agent and asked if the Leaffilter would lower my premium. He asked me how much it cost and I told him, he said for a top of the line gutter guard system with size of my house it should be no more than $2500. I have called Leaffilter numerous times to discuss this and was told someone from the sales office would get back to me.

I am still waiting. They also had a credit card sent to me which I did not ask for.

Water tends to run off and runs behind and in front of gutters. I do NOT recommend this product. Numerous post-installation repairs have been unsuccessful in stopping water runoff behind and in front of gutters. I am now trying to get my money back and get this product taken off of my gutters. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT.

I have been promised, multiple times, a return call from the corporate types who can authorize the refund/uninstallation but to date NO ONE has contacted me. My next stop is the Better Business Bureau and the state Attorney General's office.

Very poor customer support/service.

DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT.

Leaf filter tells you they will not mess with your roof will my shingles are lifted up off the roof because it was installed wrong. So they came back out.

I should have checked their work after they came back out because he lied to me about fixing everything. I just had to fix the leaf filter in the backyard. I have also been picking up all the screws in the yard and driveway that they did not clean up. I will make it clear to everyone I know not to do business with this company.

your company does half *** work and should not be in business for as much as you charge. Nothing but Glorified scam artist.

Problem after problem, not happy - LeafFilter North review

Salesman was very high pressure pushy. I did not like that.

Husband is a diabled veteran, so the price was a lot for us. But we were also concern with him climbing on the roof anymore.

Installers were very unprofressional. Husband heard them talking about rushing the job. They dropped a part that broke our window screen (and left a mark on the window). The company later denied it. The installers did not clean up after themselves. They left screws and stuff all around the house. The salesman said that these are better than other gutter cover systems, because they aren't installed under your shingles. But i have pictures that show them under the shingles. And i found a piece of shingle on the ground that they must have cut off.

When it rains, they water runs over the edge onto the deck, the garden beds (which are now flooded), and everywhere.

We called and they sent a guy out to look at it. He recaulked some downspouts that were leaking. Regarding being under the shingles, he said "it's only an inch or so". YES, But it is under it!!

He also addressed the water flowing over and said that there was debris on top of the system, and we would need to clean it off monthly. WHAT!?! The point of the system was that we didnt need to climb up there 1-2 times a year to clean gutters. Now we have to clean it every month?

We also found that the wire gutter traps were taken out of the down spouts and tossed in the bushes against the house.

We are not happy with a system we dont feel will work right and we spent so much money on it. I emailed 2 different people with pictures and my concern. But no one has replied.

I am in Tulatin Oregon, and I know you are new in the area...but I still expect help with these matters.

I want a system that works.

Cheryl

Had new gutters and Leaf Filter installed on Thursday Apr. 12.

I was impressed with the quality of the materials. My contract said the installers would arrive between 8 and 10 AM. When 11 o'clock rolled around I called the company but got switched to customer service who said the installation manager would investigate and call me back. No one called.

The installers finally arrived at 11:30; no big deal.

I have a second story roof that had no gutters and drained directly onto my first story roof. So, I purchased new gutters and filter. Towards the end of the installation, one of the installers said they did not have enough elbows and needed to go to a home improvement center to purchase them. Rather than make them move their truck and trailer I drove him just a couple of miles to our local ACE hardware store.

The downspouts installed from the second story gutters emptied onto the roof rather than being run into the first story gutters. The installer said he did not have additional material. It rained today (Apr.14).

As I expected, the water from the second story over ran the first story gutters. That was not the installation practice I saw in the sales material

  • installed badly

The salesman, Jeff Motter, promised great installation by trained professionals in a half day. The installer showed up at 10 AM and was still working in the dark at 8 PM.

When I saw it in the light of day the gutter cover looked very wavy both front to back and left to right. Additionally, the spikes they had cut were not sealed with silicone. I complained and someone did come out to check. The set up an appointment for 5 April at 8 AM.

I waited until 11 AM and no one came. I called to find out what happened and they said they had too many work cards that day - IT WOULD HAVE BEEN NICE TO KNOW so I could have been doing something besides waiting for them. The installer did show up on the 6th of April and supposedly fixed all the problems. As he was getting ready to leave I reached up over my front porch and wiggled the original spike I found un-calked, and it was still moving free and easily removed.

It makes me ask myself how much attention to detail he had on the areas I cannot check. It might be a good product, but without good installation I cannot recommend the product to my friends.

Gutter guard not completed | LeafFilter North review from Summerville, South Carolina

I filed a complaint yesterday. LeafFilter contacted me this morning explaining how this happened. I should not have listed the phone numbers of the people. They arae coming tomorrow to finish the job. Thanks for your help but please remove the post. I would appreciate your removing this post ASAP. The installer told FF he had finished the job. There was really no excuse for the lack of communication but I finally reached someone willing to help. I will try to get on the web site again and remove this post. I am just typing in words to meet the 100 words so I can forward this to you. I am trying to complete this and I did not want to put personal phone numbsers in my post. Please respond and let me know this has been done. Jerry Kennerly

Gutters guards were installed on Nov. 16, 2017.

They damaged my gutter on the left front of my home. They agreed to replace the gutter and said they would be back the next day. After numerous calls, the installer showed up on a Sunday in January to do the work. They took down my existing gutter but their equipment had a problem so they could not make the replacement.

Again (Larry) said he would come back the next day. I made numerous calls to the installer but no response. I made several calls to Account Manager, Roger Roa

(914443-9482) and spoke to him once, then he never returned my calls. I called the area Manager William (845-851-8556) and explained my problem in a messaage...no response or follow up calls.

I called LeafFilter customer service in

in Ohio who promised someone would call me..No responsse. I continued to call but no one would give the courtesy of a call back. Finally I reach William at the Summerville, S.C. office of LeafFilter(419-287-6680).

He was unaware of my problem and seemed to want to help. He promised to call me back but after waiting 9 days, I called him and left a message. No response. I have no gutter on the left front of my house and a piece is hanging down.

This has been going on for 3 1/2 months and they continue to ignore my calls. The customer service is the poorest I have ever encountered, especially from a seemingly reliable company.

I made the mistake of paying them before the work was completed. This has taken up much of my time and patience.

I agreed to have Leaf Filter redo some trim on my century home. I didn't want their gutter protection as it was way too expensive.

During the sales meeting I expressed that I wanted a gutter replaced because it could not handle the volume of water during heavy rains and was creating an additional problem of flooding in my basement. I even pointed out a spot in my house where the gutter overflows and causes a moisture problem on the inside. The subcontractors showed up much sooner than I expected as it was bitter cold and snowing. They worked about a half day and left because they did not have the proper equipment to reach the height of an older two story home.

I was led to believe that the material they were using was a Leaf Filter product that was perforated to allow for ventilation of the attic. However it was not perforated, installed directly over the old wood soffit and picked up at the ABC store in Hudson! Not to be confused with the ABC Liquor Store they told me! The next day I received a call from the salesman saying the price was misquoted and would like me to come up with $500 more!

Gutter never was installed, I'm being billed for costs that I didn't want through their finance company which shows up on my credit report and looks unfavorable to my bank when I applied for a loan! Subcontractors were qualified, courteous, and underpaid! They were not surprised when I told them the work was not done and admitted there were other problems with other clients. Then they pointed out to me that there was no mention of a gutter replacement in the contract!

HMMM!

Gutter people don't do gutters or buyer beware! I've been bamboozled by a team of con artists!
