Hi There- LeafFilter would like to make sure that every homeowner makes an informed purchase decision. Therefore, we prefer for both spouses to be home so that they can each ask any questions they may have and both gain a thorough undrestanding of how our product works.

I emailed them over the weekend asking for a free estimate. I received two calls Monday trying to set up a time.

I offered them several times and was told "your wife must be present during the visit". When I asked why, "we feel it's better that way". I'm so glad I found this site but any company that is selling you gutter guards and requires your wife be there, isn't someone I'd want to do business with. They obviously don't feel comfortable trying to sell to a male on the merits of the product.

Ironically, I'm not married! Buyers Beware!

If you call a company out to your house without all decision makers there than you are a d_bag

You probably sounded like a whipped *** and they knew that your check book was in your wife's purse along with your balls.

He doesn't have a wife dummy. It's because they pressure you to make a decision on the spot. Or the ridiculously high price will be even higher in 10 minutes.


I have been in sales for 20 years and I am still waiting for the first customer to call me back and say OK I told my wife/husband and we decided to take it.


Funny you should say this, because the wives are always told that our husbands need to be present.

***. They do this so the company can try to make sale when they are in the home.

Dumb people like you think companies wanna waste their money and time driving around writing free quotes.

Really? Think about this.

Homeowners don't just call for estimates to take time off work and have contractor estimators for guests. It's not a free estimate, it is a professional evaluating work to your property and making a business case for choosing that contractor.

If you are so angry about the number of rejections, you are not providing a valuable service at a fair price.


I had several window companies tell me the same thing. I told them my husband works and I run the house; he doesn't want to be hassled and has given me sole decision-making power.

If they can't work with that situation, I won't consider doing business with them. Funny, they all changed their "requirement" when I explained this...

I had the reverse happen; they came out and told my wife that they needed me there and it was ok if she wasn't which to me is unfair but expected since the husband has traditionally been the one to make decisions pertaining to the exterior of the house.


You are a complete ***, all legit sales presentations are made with both decision makers present.

I can't think of any reason why leaf protection has to be sold like a timeshare. Sneaky practices.

Does Leaf Filter reps typically insult potential customers instead of providing an even-keel explanation?

Your short sentence speaks volumes and makes the decision rather easy.
