LeafFilter North - I feel like a chump falling for this.
I am standing in my yard looking up at my gutters that are piled high with pine needles. I feel like such a chump for thinking that the pine needle problem would be mostly solved if I paid a FORTUNE for Leaf Filter. The guards have been up several months but pine needle are a foot high in the corners and span thickly across the entire length of all gutters Yes, the gutters drain well now and my front yard does not flood as it did before Leaf Filter. I live in North Carolina and have pine trees in my yard. Wind blows the pine needles that now pile up securely on top of the Leaf Filter flat surface within the gutters. I still need to find someone to move the extension ladder around the house and push the pine needles from the top of the Leaf Filter. Yes, it takes far less time because there is no need to reach into the gutters. The pine needles cling together and form a thick rope. With luck and experience, I can pull down the connected needles and debris in long connected pieces. Because the needles pile up on top of the Leaf Filter it actually looks much worse than before. However, at least I can see when they need attention. I am hoping that the handyman I will have to pay to preform this task will charge less because it should be easier and take less time. I paid many, many , many thousands to Leaf Filter and still need to pay someone to clean the gutters. Two of my neighbors installed Leaf Filter on my recommendation. I am very embarrassed. Recently I was asked about the product from a third neighbor. I told him that I would only recommend Leaf Filter if he could have them installed for a fraction of what I paid. He will need to take into consideration that although the rain seems to be passing through the product, it forms a great shelf for debris collection. I feel foolish for falling for gutter protection. At least a neighbor who used another product was given a tool to clean his gutters. That is more than I got from Leaf Filter.

LeafFilter North - Very dissatified with leaf filter not happy at all
You may not have to clean the inside of the gutters but after having the leaf filter installed last year every thing stays on the top and needs to be cleaned twice a year. Mold collects on the top and does not let water thru so water just runs off onto the ground. It all so does not wash the leafs or pine needles off. This does not work, I spend more time cleaning the top of the cover than I would have cleaning the gutters. The installation was done poorly as well The gutters are dirty now as well. I would not recommend this to any on it is more work then it was worth. See attached picture all the gutters are now this way.

LeafFilter North - 5 years and still loving them

I have had Leaf filter protectors installed on my home for 5 years now and they live up to what they claim. I have never had to clean the gutters since we had them installed in 2001, we have pine trees and maple trees and the leaf filter keeps all the debris out of the gutter. The design is good and of high. quality. We are very pleased customers and would highly recommend Leaf Filter to everyone.

LeafFilter North - Corners clog and screen plugs after less than a year.

LeafFilter North - Corners clog and screen plugs after less than a year.
We still need to get on our roof several times a year and clean off the screens. Mold grows in the mesh and prevents water from going in and fir needles stick into the screens. Here is a video to show you. Doesn't take much to plug the water flow and this is the high flow mesh. Their story about never having to go on the roof is complete malarkey. So expensive, would have saved money to have gutter professionally cleaned once a year vs the thousands we spent to have this system.

LeafFilter North - Rain Does Not Go Into Gutter But Overflows!!

My Leaf Filter was installed on November 4, 2014 and I discovered almost immediately that, when it rained, or when there was a little bit of snow melt on the roof, water did not flow into the gutters but instead went over the gutters and to the ground below. I now have a literal trench around my house in the front and the back where the water has been going over the gutters every time it rains. My front porch which has a gutter going along the outside and used to be dry is now constantly wet because the water goes across the gutter and drips down steadily on the porch. I contacted the service manager, Emily Klousterman, for the North Region shortly after Christmas and she returned my call in early January. Then said she would have a service tech call me. After about 10 days with no call, I called her again and she told me the same thing, i.e., a service person would call and come out to see what was wrong. He finally called and came out. However, he only took pictures and said he would show his boss. Interestingly, he said since it was raining when he came out, he could not actually look at the gutters and what was happening to the rain! Interesting!! One would think that the best time to look at what the gutters are actually doing is to look at them in operation when it is raining. I finally called him back to see what happened when he showed the pictures to his boss. He said boss would call me. Boss finally called and left a voice message saying that Leaf Filter did not work very well at the beginning until the screen was saturated with water. I have a call back into him. This is ridiculous! These gutters were over $4000! I want them taken down and replaced with a product that works.

LeafFilter North - LeafFilter Gutter system failure

Just had this product installed 11/16/14. We had after a minor snow storm < 3 inches that covered the roof gutters and leaf filter screens. Later that evening and over the last few days as the snow began to melt on the roof, the water was not flowing into the gutters but over the top of the gutter system. In my opinion if water is steadily dripping / pouring over the gutters then the system is failing to do what it supposed to do. Water is not going into the gutters as it melts. Product fails to deliver as promised.

LeafFilter North - LeafFilter Failure

To summarize my position - 1) We purchased/installed the Leaf Filter system and drip edge in JUN 2010. Leaf Filter replaced one piece of fascia board and the gutter over the garage. The fascia board was rotted and the gutter was warped/rusted. No other issues existed with my fascia/ gutters - otherwise Leaf Filter would have replaced/fixed it then (in accordance with the warranty - detailed below). I am an Army officer, and frequently travel overseas for extended periods of time. I purchased the system/drip edge because I wanted to ensure that my home drainage system would not have any issues while I was gone. 2) Due to military requirements, I was absent from the Washington DC area from JUL 2013 until JUN 2014. When I returned, I noticed the the gutters were streaked, rusted, watermarked, and that the fascia was rotted in several locations. During a moderate thunderstorm last week, I took pictures/video of water flowing over the leaf filter system (instead of into it/the gutters), and dripping off the bottom of the gutter. I also identified a number of locations where water was flowing behind the drip edge/gutter, and dripping off the fascia. Both an installation manager and the VA office manager acknowledged that parts of the leaf filter system were clogged with pollen and/or other micro pollutants, and that the entire system needed to be replaced. Further, they both acknowledged that installation of the system and drip edge could have been installed "better." Bottom line - the leaf filter system failed. This failure caused permanent and irreparable damage to my gutters in the form of black streaks (my kids call them zebra gutters - I tried to power wash them, but the stains will not come off), rust stains and unsightly watermarks along the entire length of the gutters. Further, Leaf Filter either failed/or did a poor job of calking some of the seams in my existing gutters, with resulted in additional rust stains. Lastly, Leaf Filter did a poor job of installing portions of the drip edge, which caused water to run between the gutter and the fascia, resulting in stains, paint peeling and wood rot in multiple locations. 3) The written warranty provided to me by Leaf Filter states in part - "We seal your gutter and downspouts with 50 year silicone" - "We repair any damaged gutters and/or downspouts, if necessary" - "We give you a manufacture's money back, no clog, guarantee." Given the above commitment provided to me by Leaf Filter at the time of purchase, I feel strongly that Leaf Filter is responsible for the failure of the system/drip edge and resulting damage. Update - it took me over ten business days to get in contact with Joe Roschival, LeafFilter Vice-President of Installation. Mr. Roschival was abusive, argumentative, and constantly interrupted me. He questioned my integrity and called me a liar three seperate occassions during our approximate 30 minute

Leaffilter North - Filter Review

Lead Filter product seems great. I am sure in some scenarios when the house is in a wide open area, it works great. But if the roof has debris in it because of trees in the yard, you will have problems. Here's how... The stainless steel mesh is great, however the mircoscreen clogs. Imagine, their pitch is the mesh is so small not even a grain of sand gets through. I believe that as much as I believe the microscreen clogs. Once it does, the water runs off the gutter like there is not one present. It's like a waterfall. Leaf Filter, after 2 years, came out and changed all the screens because "we have never really seen anything like this before." LOLOLOLOLOL... Sorry, I am trying to be professional about my discontent with Leaf Filter. Bottom line is that you have to make sure your microscreen has to stay clean and that means YOU have to get on the roof and do it. Lame.

LeafFilter North - Mesh clogs and water flows over it

The Leaf Filter system is 100% guaranteed not to let your gutters clog and this is where they get you. There is no explanation from the sales reps that the mesh may clog and have to be cleaned off. There is no guarantee of the mesh not clogging and you will be told that the debris will just dry up and blow off. Well this is not the case at all and I have waterfalls over my gutters every time it rains and I'm constantly trying to clean the screen but as soon as the rain washes wet debris onto the mesh I have the same problem. Overall there is no difference in having the gutters clog or the mesh clog so I feel I waited $1,800.00 and I'm not at all happy about it and I plan to spread the word as far as I can.
