LeafFilter North - Great Product

I am really pleased with our purchase. We had a great experience from the purchase through the installation. We also live in a heavily wooded area. It's nice after heavy rain to be able to get on the roof with the leaf blower to just clear all of the debris and everything is clean. There is nothing left in the gutters that I have to worry about because this product did its job as advertised. This is so much better than the previous product that I had covering the gutters.

Ever since the Leaf Filter system was installed on my home in 2011, I have had a problem with water cascading over the gutters. It's as though there's a lid on them preventing the water from entering.

Regular maintenance has been necessary in order to remove debris (mainly pine needles); however, the most recent inspection by a professional roof/gutter cleaner showed the gutter screens to be clogged with pollen and algae. He suggested the screens be removed. I called Leaf Filter to discuss their guarantee only to find the franchise I originally dealt with is out of business.

Leaf Filter will not honor the warranty. Over $2000 wasted.

Warranty issue

We purchased our guttering in Sept 2014. We replaced all guttering and downspouts and within 2 yrs we have a nice stain from the screws that was put on the gutter to hold down the screen to cover the gutter.

I don't think anyone would want to buy your product if they looked at our gutters. When we called we were informed we had to pay a $95 charge to have them come to our house and check it out. We don't call this a lifetime warranty.

We were not told about this charge when we purchased it. Jack and Mary Williams Winchester, Va

I purchased Leafilter for 3 gutters about 2 years ago. I asked the sales person at a trade show how they work with pine needle, and was told they work great.

Had salesman out to measure, and he saw my pine and oak trees. I asked him if they would work, and was told the wind and rain will clean the screen off. Well I am still up on a ladder 3-4 times a year removing pine needles by hand. When I called and complained about my problem, I was told they are working fine.

The warranty is that debris will not get into your gutter. That is true, but neither does water. Sheet metal would have done teh same thing. They said for a $95.00 service call they would have someone out to clean the filter.

I told them NO.

Be careful of this product. The warranty is worthless, blocked Leafilter covers will do more damage to your roof and gutter than if they were not there.

I would avoid this product. I will tell all my co-workers, business acquaintances, and contractors I use to avoid them.

Leaffilter North Gutter Guard

I had a LeafFilter rep here today, he gave me a thorough demonstration of the system and several competing systems. He didn't know I already had 3 quotes from competitors.

Prior to his arrival I had read these reviews so I expected the worst. However, I was pleasantly surprised when the demo pointed out good and bad aspects of all the competitors. I was also surprised when his estimate was in the middle, not the most expensive nor the cheapest. He went on to explain that I could qualify for additional discount if I was flexible on installation time.

He was courteous, knowledgeable, and considerate of my time. After weighing all the options I opted to go with them at a price of $4200.

No when it's all said and done while no technology may be perfect there's seemed like the best option.

One poor review mentioned pollen clogging their system and that was the reason for the satisfaction, I spoke to two different leaffilter customers and they never mentioned that as a problem.

I will update this post after installation to let everyone know what I think.

They are right, nothing enters the gutters, not even the rain. Once the screen gets covered with debris it stays and clogs the screen.

No good with the smaller type pine needdles. Not good where valleys meet. Service call, they blame everything on your roof. I asked " why did you install it if my roof isn't right".

The answer," we are not trained in how the roof is put on". Have an excuse for everything.

A bad product and I would not recomend to anyone. I was taken.....

Yep. Water flows right over my leaffilter gutter guards where my roof has valleys.

Seems to work ok where my gutters are straight. But rainwater runs over my leaf filter where my gutters have corners.

They installed ours this past Saturday. It poured that night as I stood in upper laundry room window, iphone and flashlight in had, rockin' my whitey-tightys, wondering if the crazy sum of money that I just forked over for gutter guards was performing as claimed.

It wasn't!

The water was cascading right over the gutter and on to my foundation!

Needless to say I was very disappointed. I called that Monday, vasalating between cancleing the 3 day contract or not.

I called and they had Zeke McCary out to my house, repaired that afternoon.

The leaffilters can't handle the volume of water flowing down pitched valleys, so he installed a dam. That should solve the problem.

I will check the rest of my house next down pour!

LeafFilter North - Keeps the Birds Off of the Roof

This system not only keeps me off the roof. It keeps the birds from building nests in my gutters, and keeps my home much cleaner. No more bird droppings on my deck. LeafFilter solved my problem. I was so happy with the job, I had them do my mothers home across the street also. Thank You LeafFilter Company!

Salesman's pitch was wonderful and he was able to lie about the performance of this product with a straight face. It is true that leaves will not get into the gutters.

It is also true that leaves and debris stick to the special nonstick coating and if you have a two story home, you will need help several times a year to clean the covering. The staff (2 years ago) were not only rude and born with an innate ability to talk over the conversation, but also lack the ability to use appropriate customer service skills to solve a problem. I tell everyone about this company and would have been much better off if I hired someone to clean my gutters 2-3 times a year. When my gutters are clogged with debris, I have a waterfall when it rains outside my front door.

Please don't let these people in your home; you will regret it.

BAD PRODUCT

These gutters were installed into gutters that needed replacing to start with. Not only that the water runs over the edge in the winter creating ice runoff.

I have never experienced such high pressure. Thank goodness I only had the front gutters done. That was 80 feet with 10 right angles at a charge of $2520.00. That is $31.50 a foot.

Took the installer 3 hours to install. This is the biggest rip off in the world. The contract is gross too. You normally have a three-day RIGHT OF RECISION but they have excluded that right by putting into the contract that if you exercise that right you will pay them 25% of the contract cost.

This is something that can be corrected in court. The salesman wanted to install them the very next day. Domonick Tagliavia was the salesman. I will never sign a contract on like this again.

Be WARNED these gutter products are very poor and you will be sorry if you purchase them.

LeafFilter North - A super product

with a number 1 rating from consumer reports, how can it be a bad product? our retirement community approved the system! i love that the product prevents leaves and really anything from getting into the gutters. it certainly looks beautiful. i'm just really delighted that someone invented a system so far superior to the metal pieces you placed in your gutters which had to be serviced from a ladder or a roof all the time, even though those "GUTTER GUARDS" WERE SUPPOSED TO PREVENT THE LEAVES GETTING IN IN THE FIRST PLACE! i got information on leaf filter from a nursery show at our local fairground complex, i left my name, and they called the next day. the salesman was very knowledgeable and nice to deal with.

I realize that this is a bashing site but I have to say that my experience with Leaf Filter has been nothing less than awesome. The sales guy was very respectful and we signed up because it was the only product we felt would truly work and we were right!

It has been almost 2 years and even though we live under 13 pine trees, this product has worked exactly as promised. I have referred a family member and was checking the latest reviews and found these. I am certain that for every 1 "pissed off consumer" there are hundreds of completely satisfied ones. I would also like to add that the complaints about the salesman offering a great deal before he left are rediculous.

I am in retail and it is common practice to put items on sale when we need to move them.

Of course we would prefer to make full retail on the items but there are times when we do what we have to do. The product works and the company has been absolutely awesome especially compared to what seems to be the standard these days.

The Leaf Filter representative stated that the product was guaranteed not to clog. However, my system often overflows due to the system clogging as a result of leaves and debris accumulating on the surface.

When I called the company, I was told that the system requires periodic maintenance, and that they could send someone out for $145. Had I known this initially, I would have selected a different product. The company should not state that the product will not clog, when in fact, it does. This is a bait and switch tactic that is unethical and should be illegal.

I have also submitted this information to the U.S. Department of Commerce as reference.

Technically speaking, your warranty probably covers the clogging of the INTERIOR of your gutters.

If the screen/filter that is covering your gutters happens to clog...oops.

But, what are the odds that a super fine filter would clog with small items like shingle grit, polen, moss or pine needles?

Give it some time. Mother nature and the wind should get those clogged filters working likity split in no time.

If not, just give those filters a solid cleaning or power washing a couple times per year.
