LeafFilter Gutter Guards
LeafFilter gutter guards use a fine mesh filter on top of a plastic frame that fits onto a gutter. In replacing these systems with Gutterglove we have noticed the following issues:
- the plastic frame warps, buckles and cracks
- the system has a tendency to clog up at the valleys
- LeafFilter caulks the joints which then does not hold up once it starts to warp
- The fine mesh filter is very often dislodged from the frame
Here are some pictures of LeafFilter systems we have encountered:
In this picture the plastic frame is buckling and the mesh is starting to come loose.
Here the mesh has already come completely loose and you can see how the frame is buckling and a significant gap is opening up.
You can see the mesh dangling down from the corner of this house. It certainly does not do much good like this!
Reps from the inventor of LeafFilter said that algae would not grow on the mesh or plastic frame. This photo would suggest they did not do their research.
