I'm having a guy from LeafGuard come out to the house tonight for a quote. Anybody use these guys? Is there a better system out there? I hate ladders and falling off of them, therefore I am contemplating installing some sort of gutter barrier system. I use my gutters for Christmas lights, I assume you can still hang clips with a leaf guard system on?

I bought these cheap as hell and snapped them on myself

And they work great.

I don't think they're christmas light compatible. However there are ones you can buy at lowes or HD that have hinges on them that would allow you to clip christmas lights under them.

Hmmm. Never thought about the DIY route.

Get ready to be butt raped. LeafGuard is freaking expensive. And they will tell you that you need new (larger) downspouts too, which add to cost.

The linked ones are brown because I have a brown roof and it blends right in.

I've seen them in white, almond and metallic as well.

They'll fit standard gutters but if you have fancy architectural gutters, it's probably best left to the professionals.

Larger downspouts? Are they trying to say that their covered gutters are catching more water than uncovered gutters?

I was curious because they wouldn't discuss price over the phone. They have to come out to demo the product and evaluate my needs. They can shove the larger downspouts up their ass.

I used these guys...


http://www.gutterhelmetpiedmont.com/

They were less expensive than gutter guard.

and am very happy after 5 years. Not one clog and I have about 50 tall trees on my property.

They guarantee for life or they will come out and clean them themselves.

I think they roll out all new gutters, not just the topper thingy, and I think they gutters are larger than regular ones.

We had ours removed because they were a pain in the ass. Rusted, falling off etc. We didn't install them so no idea if they were any good.

We have a guy come out and clean the gutters now once or twice a year at $100 a pop.

I would be curious to see what they quote. Someone was telling me it might be $3k+ for our house.

I gave Gutter Helmet your name as the person who recommended them to me. You might be getting a free tune up.

people up in here have too much disposable money...paying someone to build a shed, paying someone to install gutter guards and someone to clean the gutters?

the shed is a maybe because I know that if Zod is too busy to post pictures of Kara, he's too busy to build a shed...but the gutters and stuff...man...that's quick easy work
