Leaffilter - clogged filter

 Leaffilter* sits flat on top of the gutter causing debris to sit on top and clog the filter with pine needles, pollen, moss etc. Weak plastic housing.

My personal experience with installing gutter covers:

    As a business owner working in the RI, Ma & Ct area I want to provide a gutter cover product to my customers that will not only satisfy there needs, but will also save my company time and money from having to return to unsatisfied customers homes to unclog their gutters.

    We’ve tried the so called reverse curve systems like Gutter Helmet*and Leafguard*. We spent almost $9000.00 on a machine to make covers almost identical to Gutter Helmet but with in 6 mouths customers we’re calling us back with complaints.

    One of the problems we identified was built up gook on the front curve of the Leafguard preventing the flow of water around the curve into the gutter, this curve would need to be periodically scrubbed clean (not exactly what I would call maintenance free). Also the rain would pick up debris and the debris would flow with the water around the gutter helmet curve and into the gutter clogging the down spouts. The cure that Leafguard & Gutter Helmet have to prevent frequent clogging is to put a large 3×4 commercial down spout on the house which is costly, looks unnatural large on a residential home, and the debris that flows down the 3×4 down spout would then clog underground french drains. Some other problems included small birds squeezing threw the small Leaf Guard opening and nest inside the gutters, bees nesting inside, damaged roofs and voided roof shingle warranty’s from lifting the shingles to install the gutter guards, and complaints about the size of the system or the unconventional look taking away from the curb appeal of there homes.

We also tried the cheaper mesh type covers , but these system would collapse with the weight of snow and clog almost as quickly as a gutter without covers. The reason for this is the small debris like pine needles and maple seeds can get threw the small hole and even a small amount of this debris can make a “rats nest’ type clog over the hole for the down spout. We were just about ready to give up on gutter guards when I discover product called Leaffilter. Leaffilter with a stainless steel filter solved all the above problems but had a couple of short comings, one is the filter is not attached at the factory but instead need to be glued on with caulking on the job site by the installer, we have had a number of filters that have come loose and falling off the housing. Second its that the housing is made of vinyl and tends to warp in the heat of the sun, finally because the product sits flat on top of the gutter it would collect debris on top of it causing water to run off the top. Pollen would also cake up on top and the filter would need to be scrubbed clean.

Finally a manufacturer came out with a product which solved all of Leafilters and other manufacturer short coming and we are happy to be the areas authorized dealer for GutterGlove Guards. Its stainless steel filter will not let pine needle, maple seeds or even dirt enter the gutter, nothing but water! It is installed on top of the gutter and is attached by screws to the front lip of the gutter so there is no potential for damaging roof shingles, it is almost invisible from the ground and because it sits at a 20-30deg angle a stiff breeze is all it takes to blow off any leaves on top. GutterGlove has recently received the highest rating with the leading consumer reporting magazine as well as a number of other independent consumer reporting agencies such as  gutterguardprotectionreviews.com as the best gutter guard on the market!s

    We’ve been installing filtered covers for over fifteen years now and we no longer have any angry customers.  I’m proud to say we now have Gutterglove, the very best gutter guard on the market to offer our customers and it’s not just me saying that, it’s several leading independent consumer reporting agency’s as well!
