How is LeafFilter rated?


Services & Features

Overall Rating: 9.9 / 10 (Excellent)

LeafFilter is an outstanding choice for gutter guards. Since the company installs its own products, it exercises a high degree of quality control, which may be missing in third party installations. Their guards use modern micro mesh technology that seals gutters more tightly than other types. The guard frames are made of vinyl, which stands up very well to the elements. The company stands behind its products and installation with a lifetime, transferrable warranty. The nature of this business doesn't permit generalized pricing comparisons, so customers are advised to compare specific estimates from LeafFilter against specific competitors' estimates.

Specifications - 9.5 / 10

LeafFilter installs micro mesh guards that seal the open tops of gutters while allowing water to pass through. The mesh is made of surgical-grade stainless steel and the frames are made of vinyl. The company does its own installations and does not employ third-party contractors. Its guards do not mount under roof shingles, but instead are anchored to the gutters themselves, which preserves customer roof warranties.

Services & Features - 10 / 10

Together with their gutter guard installation service, LeafFilter also repairs and installs gutters themselves. This makes for one-stop-shopping for customers who need gutter repair and/or replacement in addition to gutter guards. However, the company does not offer a do-it-yourself installation option.

Pricing - 10 / 10

Since LeafFilter gutter guards must be installed by the company and because each installation job is different, the company does not publish its prices online. The company does offer free estimates, but since there are so many variables that affect price, consumers are advised to compare prices on house-specific estimates.

The guys turns up around mid day and worked till 07.00pm to install the 230 odd feet of my gutter filter No complaints on the work done but I have to say there were three things that left me a little unsatisfied. There cleaned out the gutters but just dropped all the pine needles and oak leaves and shingle gravel on the ground around the house. They left 2 large black plastic bags full of the bits not used or trimmed form the gutter Gard. and all the cardboard boxes they came in. I now have to somehow get this to the local dump as the trash pickup folks wont take it. Despite two calls to the Customer service assuring me they would take care of... Read More

Your LeafFilter may not allow debris into gutters, but it does NOT prevent debris from collecting on top, causing runoff down side of house and over top, washing out mulch and spreading over sidewalks.

This is the worst leaf guard. After two years the mesh separated from the gutters and the silicon pealed away. Calls to the installer were never addressed. A resent wind storm here in Maine(2017) ripped the mesh completely away from the gutters on the front side of the house.

No point of having them. All the debris lays on top and the rain just runs over the top distributing all the crap over the siding of the house!

I was planning to install leave filter gutter guards on my home, but after reading all the negative comments and lack of company responsibility, I've decided to just pay someone twice a year to come and clean out my gutters

LeafFilter- Seattle refused to provide me a verified quote, for submission to our insurance company. I currently used Gutter Helmet but a house fire required replacement. I have absolutely no complaint about their product. It was installed over 10 years ago and it does what it's supposed to do...keeps gutters debris free. I just figured that since the whole house had to be replaced, then why not try a new product? Salesman met with me, gave me the prepared script and I was ready to use the Leaf Filter product. Apparently, they have enough business and didn't need mine. I called the sales rep, to follow up and he was audibly annoyed with me. Later called the regional manager. He promised... Read More

I got these "Gutter Guards" last week" . This week it rained and the Gutter Guards did very little good, the water came cascading down almost like it always had. I've been calling the company DAILY all week, and to date no one has returned may call or been out to see what the problem is.

Price a little higher than I wanted to pay, but they were on-time, did a great installation in a day's time, and have made my gutters maintenance free. To think I almost went for LeafGuard. I have had the system for 8 months now, and it works beautifully. Keep up the great work.

After a full year of asking them to correct the system, nothing is resolved. Adding to Gloria T's comments below, the system overflows where a roof valley drains into the system. Water overshoots the mesh and pours over the gutters. True the gutters do not clog up. They don't because the Leaf Filter system will not allow water to enter the gutters in certain situations. In essence the Leaf Filter is the clog.
