Overall Rating: 9.2 / 10 (Excellent)

MasterShield has created micro mesh gutter guards that differ from most of its competitors' products by virtue of the fact that they are installed at the same pitch as the roof. The company claims that this system helps prevent debris from accumulating on the top of the guards, does not contribute to overshoot, and does not void roof warranties. The company offers a lifetime, transferrable, no-clog warranty, suggesting that it has a great deal of confidence in the superiority of its system. Overall, this company appears to be on the leading edge of technology in the gutter guard industry and to stand behind its product.

Specifications - 9.4 / 10

MasterShield manufactures steel micro mesh gutter guards that are set in an aluminum frame. The guards are designed to be installed at the same pitch as the roof, promoting better self-cleaning and minimizing overshoot. Though the system mounts just under the leading edge of the row of shingles, the company has convincingly refuted concerns about whether this installation technique voids roof warranties, concluding that it does not. They are one of the few companies on our list that also offer heated guards, especially useful in cold climates, where gutters can frequently freeze over.

Pricing - 9 / 10

As with many other gutter guard companies, MasterShield does not publish a price list, since each installation is unique and depends on a number of different factors which can significantly raise the price. However, the company does offer free quotes through its dealer network. These should not be taken as final, since they represent an estimate and not a complete proposal.

I've had multiple gutter guard type products on my gutters over the years. These are decent; water goes into them and they served me well for a couple years, without any maintenance. That said, I thought I was buying a product that'd never clog, and their "no clog" guarantee is arguably quite deceptive, because what they're guaranteeing is that the gutter itself will not clog, not that their product (the gutter guard itself) won't clog. When the latter happens, they'll give you a quote for cleaning them or tell you to use carb cleaner or strong bleach to clean your gutters yourself. Excuse me?
