Do LeafFilters need to be removed before a new roof is installed?
I started to get estimates for new shingles on my roof and was told by the first contractor that the LeafFilters would need to be removed, then reinstalled after the roofing was complete. He also said that LeafFilter needed to do the work.
Is this true? What is the charge, if any?
Why after 6 years of standing behind your product, does LeafFilter want to charge me to make their product work properly?
I bought the LeafFilter system in 2014 so I wouldn't have to shimmy down the end of my roof to clean my gutters or use a 16' extension ladder. We have maple trees in our yard and every spring they drop their pods.
Once the LeafFilter was installed, the maple pods no longer went into the gutter itself, but sat on top of the filter, preventing the gutters from doing their job. Since the LeafFilter product is guaranteed, in May 2015 I called LeafFilter to have the maple pods removed from the LeafFilter, and the company complied. I was given a business card with the phone number at the time. Every year since then, the situation has been the same...till this year.
When I called this year I was told there is going to be a charge of $95 for the service. When I asked why and explained the situation I was told someone from the local office would call me back. I spoke with the service manager (Louie) and he basically told me, it is what it is. I reiterated and told him i was going to call corporate, he told me they would just forward the message to him.
It's exactly what happened. I spoke with 4 different people May 18th and they either tried to pacify/patronize me or tell me they are going to charge me for the service. On several occasions I said if I knew I was going to have to pay somebody yearly to clean my gutters, or clean them myself, I never would have invested in the LeafFilter product. Nobody I spoke with was willing to address this concept.
One of the people I spoke with actually told me that I haven't given the wind enough of a chance to blow the maple pods of the screens. Luckily we haven't had too much rain because one year the maple pods actually took root in the LeafFilter. I imagine it will happen again if left unattended. The other thing that could possibly happen is that my roof will get damaged by the soggy maple pods.
The gentleman (Victor) I spoke with this morning tried to justify the cost by asking how much I would have to pay to get me gutters cleaned. I told him I have no idea because I always cleaned them myself. Then he asked how long it took me; like that makes a difference.
The bottom line is that LeafFiler stood behind their product for 6 years, but now doesn't want to. If they aren't willing to, then their advertising is apparently misleading, and I will be back on the roof or ladder doing the their product will not, and risking my well being.
Most corners where splash guards installed are leaking... thinking they were not sealed.
Also, water pouring over splash guard on patio which is flooding patio. Called customer service line several days in a row to open a service ticket but get a repeating message ...
no one answers the phone... maybe line is not functioning correctly

Why was I asked about my husband?
Rep called (twice) to schedule an estimate. I told the woman when a good time was.
She confirmed she could make that time work, then asked me for a time when my husband was going to be home as well.
Why? That seems very sexist.
Can I cancel my appointment and terminate my account?
I recent had an appointment with a representative named Jason. He came and we (girlfriend and I ) decided to get a leaf filter.
We signed the paperwork and filled out everything. There is no complaint but I want to cancel my order and stop my installation.
I have reconsidered when I want to actually purchase and get these services and I would like to terminate my account for the time being. I simply don't want to purchase leaf filter at this time and would consider reapplying at another date.
Okay, I’m ready to install LeafFilter on my home. What are the next steps?
Why do I need gutter protection when I can just take the gutters off of my house?
Is LeafFilter sold through a dealer network or at big box stores?
What about ice dams… won’t LeafFilter cause those to form?
Won’t the winter weather warp or crack LeafFilter’s plastic frame?
Does your product come with any sort of guarantee?
Will putting a “lid” on your gutters create a shelf for debris to gather on?
Why don’t you provide a price per foot figure?
If your system is completely enclosed, how does water get in?
Will LeafFilter keep out pine needles? Nothing else seems to!
I have Leaf Filter for many years and it does work very well for the most part but my issue is, stuff lays on the tops of the gutters and won't come off. when it rains hard, the rain will run over the top.
I have a 2 story home, I'm 77 years old and I can not get up there to clean the crud off.
Any solution ? Thank you, Richard
