''all'' is not true there are more reasonably price products out there that work

cleaning gutters today does not mean tomorrow they won't be clogged

$3 ft is more like it. At least it cost just a little more than new gutters.

I get leaf relief for $27 for a 10 ft stick. After I add what I charge to install it, it's a little more than new gutters.

Rain drop gutter guards work pretty well too.

Used to be in the industry, and they are overpriced and you will see problems with them.

The punched aluminum gg lets in dirt and pine needles which clog gutters over time, the screen mesh coats with pollen and won't let water in, plus it still has pine needles sticking up all over it no matter what they say.

The Rhino and Evelyn's leaf solution (both made by the same company) cost $3 a foot . The Xtreme Gutter Guard also made by the same company) is exactly the same but only $1.39.

You just have to negotiate the price. Pretty shady business if you ask me.

I made a switch to rain drop completely this year and it's just as good as any of them.

Been using SmartGuard for some time now with our gutter company, COPPERSMITH GUTTER COMPANY.

Smart Guard has a dealership program and only sells to gutter guys. We have had great luck with it.

Re: Anyone Find A Gutter Guard That Works?


In the last few years, I have seen houses with gutter helmet that have developed problems along the eave.
The helmet seems to lift the bottom course of shingles too much. It creates an area where the water runs down the roof and then back toward the house. Then it runs sideways until it gets to a spot where it can go between the seams in the shingles.

I have seen more than one place where roof sheeting and sub-fascia has rotted out. In a short time. I realize in a perfect world it may be great, but I suspect we will see more of this in the future.
