    Raul and his partner were fantastic to work with. They followed my special instructions to the letter. They did a terrific job on my house. My new gutters and Mastershield screen (along with new fascia board intallation) have dramatically improved the look of my home. When they left, the grounds were cleaner than when they started the job!

    Paul D. of Everett, WA

    Customer Testimonial

              This company was top notch. They installed new gutters with Mastershield screens These guys did a great job, even doing some painting for me after the old gutter removal, but prior to the new ones being installed. And, they said "no problem free of charge". I gave them a well deserved tip and I regret that I didn't give them a bigger tip. And, it's been over a year since the new Mastershield screens and gutters were installed on the 2nd floor roof and dormers. The Mastershield screens have worked great keeping out all the pine needles, yet working very well in the hardest rain. I didn't want to walk on the roof for years and these new gutters with Mastershield screens means I don't have to clean those gutters again. I had new gutters with cheaper covers installed on the he lower roof to save money, since they can be accessed with a small ladder. But, they also have been doing a great job of keeping debris out of the gutters. Bottom line, I would happily hire them again.

              Very professional and quick. Excellent clean up. The installers were polite and friendly, and dedicated to doing quality work. I appreciated that they informed me of some major roof issues, and the fact that the company delayed putting on the Mastershield portion till I could have the roof replaced.

    Brad W. of Brier, WA

    Customer Testimonial

              I love the Douglas firs that surround our new house, and after spending a few weekends cleaning gutters, I decided it was time to fix the problem. I interviewed MasterShield as well as the other guys and got competitive estimates from both (although the MasterShield's number was actually a little lower). I also saw samples from both, got explanations on how they work, and learned firsthand why the gutter shields I bought at Lowe's (as a test) just plain don't work. Jim was very patient and knowledgeable in explaining the options, and even identified some flashing issues which needed fixing, as well.After a horrendously wet winter, I don't miss the clogged gutters one bit. I was a little surprised at project completion to receive a telescoping brush to clean my self-cleaning gutters - and it's proven useful for the 3 or 4 times I've needed to remove needles which tend to collect below the valleys in two locations. So it appears that I need to budget about 30 minutes a year to attend to a couple of trouble spots. I'll take it!I highly recommend MasterShield, for the product, the workmanship, and the service. When you decide to give up the gutter-cleaning ritual, you'll probably receive an estimate that's more than double your budget. (especially if you decide to replace rather than just cover your existing gutters. They'll explain why the system works much better if the gutters are located to allow the covers to maintain or exceed the roof pitch.) You can probably negotiate it a bit, but then do it anyway. You won't regret it.

  • "Great job. The gutters almost exactly matched the new house trim." Read Full Testimonial

    Joe F. of Federal Way, WA

    Customer Testimonial

              Great job. The gutters almost exactly matched the new house trim. We had them come out before the house was painted and removed the old gutters. Then the painters fixed some woodwork that needed replacing, painted and got the house looking great. We had a timing issue because of weather that delayed the painting for several weeks, but finally it got finished and then Leafless came on out. They didn't have the right end caps and wanted to paint some generic ones on site, but understood when we didn't want to do that. Came out a couple of days later and voila, new gutters, reinforced some roofing edges and it looks and works great.

    Practically the week after this couple moved into their new home, their gutters were already completely clogged with fir needles.  Because it was such a new home, we just cleaned their gutters, instead of installing our own new seamless gutters, and installed black MasterShield on them.

    As you can see in these pictures the damage done to the roof has caused extensive rot to the fascia board and rafter tails.  The homeowner had the damage to the tile roof fixed prior to the installation of the new gutter and MasterShield.  In the after photo you can see the huge difference once the new gutters and MasterShield were installed.  Now the homeowners can finally relax knowing that they have taken care of the problem and will no longer have to worry about leaves, needles, or debris getting into their gutters ever agian.

    A homeowner installed a DIY product on his home that he purchased at his local big box store.  He thought the product was working, that is until he noticed water running down behind his gutters. Upon further inspection, it was noted that there was significant fascia damage and that the covered gutters were full of needles and debris.  New fascia board and gutters were installed and set for a future installation of the MasterShield gutter protection system.

    The pictures here show the damage done by backflow from the LeafGuard gutter system.  The fascia behind the LeafGuard was completely rotted and had to be replaced.  Backflow occurs when the precipitation hits the solid lid of LeafGuard and instead of it draining into the reverse curve system, the water drains behind the system and causes the fascia board to rot.  For these homeowners the old gutters system was removed, all rotten fascia was replaced, and new gutters with the MasterShield HydroVortex technology. The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing that the gutter system installed on their home won't cause any damage.

    MasterShield was desperately needed on his old home in Renton, WA.  As we see occur in so many cases, the gutters had clogged and backflow, causing water damage to the home.  Some "tiger stripes" were even visible.  This occurs when the gutters clog to the point where the water overflows the top of the gutter and drips over the side, leaving stripes and residue on the side.  Our team installed new MasterShield gutter filters in musket brown to prevent this from ever happening again.

    Condo in Mountlake Terrace replaces Leaf Filter with MasterShield Gutter Guards

    This condo complex had Leaf Filter installed on their gutters only two years prior to calling MasterShield.  Two years is all it took for the Leaf Filter to fail completely, allowing water to cascade over the system and ruin not only the fascia but also areas of siding. The original system allowed leaves, needles, and debris to sit on top of the shield that was placed at a 90* angle, allowing algae to grow and clog the micro mesh!  MasterShield does not have these problems because it is installed at the same pitch as your roof, no selves created here!! As stated by MasterShield.com "the patented 'Leaf Release' nonstick surface mirror roof pitch and won't permanently trap debris...raised steps (in the filter system) help to 'elevate' debris allowing max wind flow down the roof and over the gutters to dry debris and blow it away."

    We say it over and over but it's worth repeating: nothing will shed off your gutters if you don't have enough of a slope. MasterShield angles the gutter guard so it's steep like your roof so that the gutter muck actually falls off instead of just piling up on top and plugging the system.
