1. LF advertises that any leaves or debris will be blown on the next breezy day. Doesn't happen as most of the debris does not blow off.
2. Just brushed off all gutters with the long handled brush they gave us. It rained yesterday and we still are getting overflow which messes up windows and flower beds. In reading some online complaints it may be the my LF screens are clogged with pollen or something else.
3. The original installing company has gone broke and the new company won't take any responsibility.
4. After the installation I found out that If I have my cedar shake roof treated again the Leaf Filter screens will have to be removed and then reinstalled to prevent the treatment oil from clogging the screen. Estimated cost $400-$500.
These problems make me wish I had not spent the $7000+ to install the Leaf Filter system. Instead I could have just continued to have my gutters cleaned 2-3 times a year @ $140 each time.
I went with LF because of the strong rating with Consumer Reports. However I think Consumer Reports did not do testing with tree debris added to the test.
I will contact the home office for Leaf Filter next week. If I get no help from them I will register a complaint with Washington State Attorney General office and/or the Consumer Protection office.
