Leafless in Seattle Case Studies: Replacing LeafFilter with MasterShield Gutter Guard

Wednesday, July 25th, 2018 by jim singleterry


The owners originally had LeafFilter's gutter guard installed because they saw it was rated number one by a consumer rating agency, but as you can see from these fails, epically.  All the debris simply sits on top, blocking the filter and causing water to cascade right over the edge.  Is the gutter TECHNICALLY not clogged? Is it TECHNICALLY not failing according to their performance guarantee?


To fix this, we had to completely start over.  We removed and recycled the LeafFilter gutter guard, cleaned out the gutters, and then installed MasterShield (which actually works for fir needles).  We were thankfully able to salvage the gutters after simply reworking them, and now this nice little old lady has what she thought she was buying the first time around: gutters she doesn't have to go up and sweep off.
