    Customer Testimonial

              These guys are awesome. I had them install the MasterShield Gutter System in 2013, and this last June, I noticed one of the valley filters was broken. I contacted them again to repair it, and Jim (the same guy that sold it to me 4 years ago) came knocking at my door to assess the situation. He remembered us and was equally as punctual, informative, professional and friendly as the very first day I met him. He saw that the Barnett Valley was broken and offered to have that valley repaired as well as update all of the others for free. It was booked for September 8th, and the guys showed up later in the day and worked into the dark to get them all fixed. Top notch service providers. Thank you!!

    Customer Testimonial

              Everything went great! Of course, we won't know for a while how well the MasterShield gutter guards work as far as maintenance. Hopefully, better than many of the competitors as MasterShield is pricey. The entire process went smoothly and the workers caught that because of problems with previous gutter installation water had been collecting and was beginning to damage some fascia. They installed some additional flashing and then came back out later, when the weather was dry enough, to trim back the shingles and glue them down. The original install was 2/13/16, so at nearly 3 months later we are happy with the gutters.

    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.

    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.

Jim from Leafless in Seattle

Title: Estimator

Jim from Leafless in Seattle

Growing up the son of an Air Force officer, we moved around a bit. Dad started his adult life as a homebuilder in California as a foreman building custom homes in the San Jose area. During the war, he enlisted and stayed in for 32 years before he finally retired. About a year in, he wanted to get right back to what he'd always really loved - building houses. Growing up we'd always be doing remodeling projects (many of them pretty extensive like gutting an old Victorian) and so I learned on the job. When it was time to go to college I figured I wanted a nice white collar desk job so I could just hire people to do all that hard construction work, so I got a degree in Computer Science.

Long story short, I hated having a desk job like that. Now I'm back in the construction field and loving it. There's something pure and, almost, beautiful about helping people make their lives a little bit easier by taking away one of the most dreaded chores you have around the house - getting that old ladder out to clean those darn gutters yet again.

    Before
    Old Gutter System Replaced in Enumclaw, WA
    After

    This homeowner was very unpleasantly surprised when our salesman informed him of the amount of rot that his clogging gutters had caused. The gutters were back flowing, so the water in the gutters—instead of simply flowing through the gutters as designed—was flowing into the fascia and roof.  The water damage was even so bad in some areas that the roof itself was beginning to warp.  The home is in the middle of a forest and is surrounded on all sides by trees, so the gutters had been clogging with fir needles and leaves for some time.  The homeowner had even climbed up on a ladder several times to clean them out himself, but it just wasn’t enough.  Also, as you can see from the “Before” picture, one of the downspouts on the second story was left unconnected, so water was just constantly flowing across the roof and causing even more rot.

    We removed the old, damaged gutters and replaced them with new gutters and downspouts in black and eggshell.  In the “After” picture, you can also see where we attached that troublesome second-story downspout to the gutter below it to prevent even more water damage.  We used a black downspout to match the roof, so it would blend in.  Additionally, to ensure that this home would never be further damaged by its gutter system, we installed black and eggshell MasterShield gutter covers.  Our team also treated the roof with an antifungal agent to prevent more moss growth and water damage in order to extend the life of the roof.

    There were numerous issues with this home.  One: the gutters were full of needles, debris, and leaves.  Two: the downspouts were insufficient. Three: algae and mold growing on the siding and roof due to water overflow.  Four: rotting fascia due to clogged gutters. To remedy the problems, new gutters and MasterShield were installed, valley controllers were installed to help with water disbursement, all downspouts were replaced, additional downspout tie-ins were added, and the siding and roof were treated for excessive algae and moss growth.

    This home had LeafGuard installed on all the gutters, however, it was not keeping out the needles and the gutters soon became overrun with them! The fascia behind the LeafGuard was rotten and needed to be replaced. Leafless in Seattle was able to replace the gutters, install MasterShield, and replace all the rotten fascia. If you have issues with needles, make sure you do your research...not all gutter protection systems are the same!  Leafless in Seattle/MasterShield is the only company that offers a 100% no clog or your money back guarantee, not like our many competitors that offer to come to clean your gutter when they get clogged.

    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 System Still Works Perfectly after 3 Years in Kent, WA
    After

    This home’s cedar wood shake roof was completely worn out when its owner contacted us.  The roof had been rotting for years because of the gutters, which were constantly clogging with pine needles.  When gutters become clogged, more often than not, the backflowing water goes directly into the house and causes hidden water damage.  This homeowner figured it was the perfect time to upgrade the whole system.

    Our crew replaced his rotten roof with a much sturdier architectural asphalt composition shingle roof, and to prevent further water damage, we installed our MasterShield gutter protection system in musket brown.  The gutters and downspouts were also replaced with our product in almond.  The “After Photo” pictured in this post was actually taken 3 years after the original installation, and the homeowner claimed that he hasn’t had to do anything to maintain the system.  The pine needles—that were such a problem before—simply slide right off the MasterShield covers onto the ground, where they can be easily collected.  The neighbors were so impressed that they also want to install MasterShield on their home.

    The Leaf Filter gutter system and the MasterShield gutter system have a couple of similarities.  Both consist of an aluminum frame with micro mesh technology, that is however, where the similarities end.  Just a few MAJOR differences between the two systems...

    1) MasterShield is installed at the same pitch as your roof, the leaves, needles, and debris that come off your trees and roof just wash way instead of getting 'stuck' on the perfect shelf that Leaf Filter creates when it is installed at a 90* angle.  As you can see in these pictures, that creates a perfect breading ground for algae and moss.

     

    2) Hydrovortex Technology, big idea and even bigger advantage for MasterShield! This technology is only available on the MasterShield gutter protection system redirects water through the micro mesh, siphoning through the gutter fast! 

     

    3)MasterShield is the only gutter protection system backed by a 100% no clog, money back guarantee.  MasterShield believes so strongly in their product that they are willing to give you 100% of your money back* in case of a clog!

     

    Just a few of many reasons why MasterShield is the considered the best in the industry!
