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!

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.
Living in a forest? MasterShield will make life much easier by keeping all those leaves and needles out of your gutters
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.
This charming cabin in the woods is surrounded by large, beautiful trees, however that posed a problem for the home owner! His gutters were absolutley filled to the top with needles! The gutters were cleaned out and MasterShield was installed, now the home owner can relax when he gets to his cabin instead of climbing a ladder to clean out the gutters.
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.
When gutters plug and flow back under the roof, rot occurs. Luckily, we were able to repair this before it spread too far.
LeafGuard works well enough for leaves, but if you've got fir needles clogging your gutters you really need a gutter solution like MasterShield, because it's the only one that will really handle everything.
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.
This is an unfortunate design with multiple valleys converging to one spot. We were able to custom design the MasterShield to maintain a slope even here so the fir needles and tree debris can shed off the gutter guards.
This brand new construction was in need of fascia, gutters, and downspouts. We came out and completed the Gutter install.
This adorable home was hiding a dirty little secret! This home looked perfectly fine to the untrained eye, however, upon closer inspection it was shown to have extensive rot to the fascia board just below its cheery surface. To bring it back to its former glory all rotten fascia was removed and replaced, new gutters, downspouts, and the MasterShield gutter protection system were installed. This cute, little cottage is now free of rot and full of potential!
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.
Pine needles are long, flexible, and, unfortunately, problematic for your gutters. They can clog up your gutters in no time at all. This is what was happening to this homeowner in Snohomish, WA. We were able to solve this problem by installing MasterSheild gutter guards in green.
Keeping out pine, fir and cedar from gutters is not an easy task, but MasterShield handles it with ease. Leafless gutters prevent water damage to your home by properly channeling water to the drains.
We added a new 10" Hardie Trim fascia board to the eaves which gives it a much nicer curb appeal. The reveal beneath the gutter looks great and now since it's fiber cement it can never rot and won't need paint. Then we added the MasterShield Gutter Guards for fir needles so this Bellevue area customer won't have to clean gutters anymore.
We removed the old gutters that were rotting the roof and fascia and installed new, larger painted cedar fascia around the entire perimeter.
At Leafless in Seattle/MasterShield we specialize in the MasterShield gutter protection system, however, some homes just do not need it. Some homes just need new continuous aluminum gutters. The difference that new gutters can make on a home in term of looks is amazing, in terms of investment and care, it is priceless. While we would like to see MasterShield on every home, we know that is just not possible, but new gutters that properly drain the water away from your home and possessions are critical.

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.
Marysville MasterShield Gutter Guard for Fir Needles.
Before, because of gutters clogged with fir needles, this home had rotten fascia and the tongue and groove soffit was being attacked. After, we repaired the damaged fascia and soffits and installed the MasterShield Gutter Guard in white to prevent needles from messing with their gutters any longer. We also installed new white gutters and downspouts.
This MasterShield gutter guard installation in black will really help with the fir needles formerly plaguing this home's gutters!
This brand new home (4 months old) was already getting clogged gutters from the neighbor's trees - pine, cedar and fir needles were already causing problems. Now that gutter problem has a solution - MasterShield!
MasterShield gutter guards were installed for protecting a home from cedar and fir in Everett, WA
This homeowner never wanted to think about cleaning their gutters again. Our experienced roofing specialists were able to write up an estimate for the installation of a MasterShield Gutter Guard system. Once the proposal was approved, we went ahead with the installation.
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.
This roof had significant water damage from clogged gutters. We offered to simply repair the damage, but since it was only slightly more expensive, the owner decided to just replace the roof and upgrade it to a 50-year roof. We then replaced the gutter system with new black gutters and installed black MasterShield to protect their gutters from all the needles and leaves that plague them year round. Our team also came out with our mobile gutter replacement technology and made everything custom on site. This is the best solution for gutter guards in the Northwest.
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!
This customer was getting fir needles in the gutter even though they're on top of a mountain with no trees overhead. Wind does amazing things to leaves and needles and they find their way into gutters, so they needed a solution. We installed MasterShield Gutters which we believe is the answer to fir needles in gutters.
This homeowner was a previous customer of Leaf Solutions. Upon inspection she realized that because the Leaf Solution was installed at 90* a perfect shelf was created for the needles, leaves, and debris to sit on, thus not allowing water to get into the gutters. She did a little research and found MasterShield, that is installed at the same pitch as the roof, thus eliminating the 'shelf' created by most other gutter systems.
