LeafFilter North in Lennon, Michigan - For sales rep comes clean

I worked as a Leaf Filter sales rep for about a year (in 2013). everything bad you have posted is true - and there's more. At the Friday morning sales meetings the reps and managers sit around a table laughing about the sales they made - mostly who could come up with a better lie to get a customer's signature. The reason they install jobs so fast . . is so customers don't wise up and cancel - seriously! The BOTTOM price managers can offer is $10 per foot plus $10 per corner. (the rep loses his fat commission at this point) If you place an order, then try to cancel b4 install, they'll give you this price. Reps get paid 10% commission at $22/ft and, NOTICE this, HALF of the money YOU pay above $22/ft.

Leaffilter North - Leaffilter Gutter Protection Review from Fairfield, Ohio

The product itself is a decebt product. Realize this....if its to good be true it probably is. The only employees of the company are the managers. Everyone else is a sub. Its not your sales...subcontracotrs fault...they are trained to "embelish". Bottom line is this.....take the estimate...schedule out 4 days....call to cancel...price will got $11 or $12 a foot. Now remember....you will have to clean off your product. You wont have to clean your gutters but you will clean your leaffilter...or pay them $78 to do it. Your gutters wont ever need to be maintained. No company in their right mind will warrant work/product theybdidnt do. No matter what your subcontracted sales person tells you it wont happen

LeafFilter North in Walton, Kentucky - Horrible Service

I bought a house that had leaffilter guards installed. The mesh screen had blown off at some point. Because of this the gutter needed to be replaced. I contacted leaffilter to have the screen replaced, the system inspected after the gutter company re-installed, and some small sections added where the gutters were extended beyond the original length. I was told repeatedly that I did not have leaffilter brand guards on my system and made to submit photos to prove that it was a leaffilter guard. The guards had the leaffilter name and patent number marked on them, which I explained to the person on the phone several times. Basically your representatives insinuated that I could not read. I moved past this as I simply wanted some minor work and a screen replaced on my system. I have left over 2 messages a week with the representative for 2 months with no call backs. I am removing the system from my house and will never consider this company again.

LeafFilter North in Lewiston, New York - Leaffilter nothing but deceipt and lies

I worked for Leaffilter briefly, and was nothing nut disappointed. They promise the world when they hire you. They talked up the integrity of the company, but once I signed on, it was all about charging the customer as much as possible, and then keep discounting until they said yes. The " life-time warranty" is a joke. You were lucky to have any problems addressed when they put it in. We were instructed to lie that we were employees of Leaffilter, and they installers were all employees. But in truth, we were all sub-contractors, told to lie, get the customers money, and move to the next target. The whole thing was a B.S. scam. Beware, and just pay someone $60.00 to clean your gutters right, instead of the multiple thousands- leaf filter tries to extract from unsuspecting people. Stay away! I know, cause I worked for them and found out the ugly truth the hard way.

LeafFilter North in Lewiston, New York - Past salesman

Use to work for Leaffilter, or should I say, was a subcontractor. We are told to lie to the customer, and do anything we can to get the sale. Salespeople, like the installers are NOT employees, just temporary subcontractors. We only got paid if we could bilk the customer out of as much money as possible. For those who are still considering this product, listen to the pitch, and wait. They start of a a outrageous price of about $ 30 ft. If the customer balks, we "discount to $ 26.00 ft. If they still balk, $ 20.00 ft. As a last resort, we call the manager, put him on speaker phone, and he comes up with a B.S. story and says we can get it at $ 13.00 ft. They try to squeeze as much money out of the customer as possible. As a last resort. They sell it at cost (yeah right) and still make a ton of money, expect for the poor salesman. It is a *** game. Many promises- no follow through. Buyer beware. The whole outfit is unethical. Let see If the is a company has a response to this and lies again. As they say in Texas- Leaffilter is all hat, and no cattle! Had to leave the company. It is tough to lie to nice unsuspecting people all day, and try to sleep at night!

LeafFilter North in Marengo, Indiana - Unethical practices and product not satisfactory either

Salesman came at our request for quote. Quote was higher than we were willing to pay. The sixth quote allowed a monthly cost of $78 monthly for the first year then we would pay it off with no interest fees. The credit card bill came from Wells Fargo Home Projects (we didn't know it wasn't financed by them but hadn't actually asked). The monthly bill was $136.92. Considering that is nearly $59 more than our signed contract indicated, we contacted LeafFilter. The only reply was the salesman was new. They were unwilling to work with us or do anything to uphold their contract so we disputed the claim. All documentation was provided to Wells Fargo. We learned one of LeafFilter's documents was even altered but because the selling price was what was quoted we were told "the terms are correct as being billed." I am still confused how terms are correct at $59 more per month BUT here is the rest of the story... we have large maple trees which produce many seeds. Those seeds being in our gutters were what prompted the purchase. Not only is it an unpleasant job but being on a ladder trying to rid the gutters each spring is not particularly safe. The attached photo shows our gutters this past spring AFTER LeafFilter installed their product. The gutter protection accomplished nothing as the seeds had to be removed from off the gutter protection. This photo was sent to LeafFilter - no response was received. No response was received after speaking to the owner or manager regarding the incorrect monthly charges we DID NOT agree to and no response was received despite numerous attempts to get all of this resolved through LeafFilter without disputing the monthly charge amount or the fact the gutter protection didn't provide what was intended. This is a VERY disappointed "customer"... I wouldn't spend any money for the so-called gutter protection LeafFilter installs.

LeafFilter North in Franklin, Ohio - High pressure sales

Had an estimate for Leaf Filter. WE were given an estimate, However WE were give and amount lower amount if we would say yes right then. When my husband said he couldn't give a right now yes. The guy that came out said "yea I go out and give these estimates, with gutters hanging of the roof and I go back and they're still hanging. all they want is an estimate" I didn't appreciate being compared to somebody that has no intention on buying. Cause we would of. To me I felt like we were being pressured. My husband and myself are both disabled.

LeafFilter North in Alpharetta, Georgia - Horrible Experience

It has been a long time since I have seen the tactics these people use to generate sales. The heavy handed sales person was horrible. I threw him out of my house. He was rude, demeaning, controversial, and downright nasty. Beware of these folks. It seemed as though they were selling siding or vacuum cleaners. The $10,000 quote took my breath away. What a bunch of huxters.... It has been a long time since I have seen that kind of selling. I was going to call the main office number but decided that it would be fruitless. I am sure that they operate the same way all over the country. I would be happy to pay someone $100 every 6 months to clean my gutters.

LeafFilter North in Lewiston, New York - True comsumer cost

I was interested in getting leaf filter, and had there salesman come out to give my a price. He said I needed 150 feet,and my price would be $ 4400.00. (almost $ 30 dollars a foot) When I said I needed to think about it, he lowered the price to $3800, saying he could offer a factory discount. When I said I still wanted to think about it, he said I could get a flexible installation discount, he again lowered the price, this time to $ 2900.00 if I would sign the contract today. Astounded by the sudden $ 1500.00 drop, I again said I needed time to think it over. He then called his manager saying I needed time, and the manager said I could receive commercial pricing because I had white gutters ( most everyone does) and my price would be $ 1900, but I had to agree to a contract right away! $ 2500 hundred dollar drop in a matter of minutes. They are obviously making money at this price too. I them realized the pricing scam and said no thank you!!! Beware consumers, the product did not seem bad but the deceptive sales practices ,left me with a bad taste. Beware everyone!
