I have had leaf guard gutters for around eight years. During the past years, whenever we had a bad winter, all the water backs up and comes down into the house. I have recently contracted a person who is replacing these gutters and soffets (due to water backup) with...

Not the gutters problem. Heat loss through roof is culprit.

The 2nd time the gutters fell in a snow Leafguard told us to file an insurance claim & hung up. More $$$ in their pocket.

Leafguard screwed their gutters into the fascia board (not the truss tails as agreed). The gutters came off in the snow and in some parts sections of the fascia boards w/it. Leafguard said, if your house fell is it LG's fault? I said YES.

We gave LG an example - IE; It's like we hire a contractor to hang a huge heavy mirror on our wall, the stud is missed, the drywall gives way and the mirror falls.

It is the contractors fault for failing to hook their product to a structural part of the building to handle conditions present, in our case it is snow weight. LG hung up.

This company is aware of the "ice dam" problems. Never had this problem in the 26 years in my home. Had Leaf Guard installed prior to last winter, now I get 4-6 ft icicles over my front steps when it snows. They drip aduring the day and refreeze on our front steps...

We also have the icicle problem since having Leaf Guard installed! They keep leaves out but ice dams form because the water does not flow into the gutter.

We were also told when we complained to install heating cables and the problem is the ventilation.

Each year they are on is worse now the garage and porch that are not insulated have 3 to 4 foot icicles and water flowing behind the gutter. Positive reviews from California customers I did not see one positive review from a customer in the Northeast.

Leafguard works great for keeping leaves out, BUT during heavy downpours it still runs over the gutter. OMG! This recent snowstorm huge icicles are forming over every inch of gutter and causing ice on the sidewalks, patio, etc. Horrible!! As the snow is melting off...

"Heavy downpours still run over the gutters..." Really? Then why can't I find a single video of this happening on the internet?

You would think with all these pissed people there would be scores of PROOF available. I really think all these posts are faked.

I'm making an appointment for an estimate anyhow. I saw how well the leaf guard system works with my own eyes at a home show.

What a huge waste of money!! We installed ours in 2012, The bottom edge is nothing but solid drips.

Called the salesman and was told it must be the wind. 2 years later the wind was still blowing and our front step was full of ice this winter, never occurred before Leafguard..

Called them for a service call to have them adjusted and the Slacky they sent was rude and didn't do anything that affected the drips. THIS PRODUCT IS DEFECTIVE AND NEEDS TO BECOME A CLASS ACTION SUIT!!!!

My husband is 76 and I am 71. Because of our age, early in December 2010, we had LeafGuard gutters installed for our protection. After the first snowstorm, our entrance stoop was totally encased by ice. Where icecicles used to form across the entire front uniformly...

We are pleased to hear some oen got their issues resolved. hope it was a long term correction.

We home Pandora2 keeps us abreast of her long term experience.

Why do customers have to go thru all the BS, the complaints, communications abuse (hung up on, silence, etc) and all the hassles and arbitration's to get action? We filed our complaint on here, no LG rep contacted us.

to Aromashodu: i would love to see this cutting edge research that says curved hood designs are ice making machines. i have done plenty of research.

Gutters don't cause ice damns. If you want to get rid of any icicles, move down south. Icicles will form whether you have gutters or not. As far as the company "trick"ing you, sounds like you are an *** for not reviewing your contract.

Your own stupidity.

As far as the original post, sounds like you have other issues beside having a great gutter system in place. if water "seeping" down from ice and is getting into your basement, i would hate to see what a heavy rain would do to your basement.

You are an ***. It is not an issue with the gutters.

I to just had "Leafguard Gutters" installed we had old aluminum gutters that filled up it feels like 10 times a year. What a mess!

Our old gutters over flowed so bad it was like walking under a waterfall. And the backyard by the foundation would fill up w/water and flood the basement.

BUT A MIRACLE HAPPENED "LEAFGUARD GUTTERS" TO THE RESCUE ! NO MORE FLOODING! NO MORE WATERFALLS.

But we did have a bad case of sticker shock... you need to figure around $27 a foot including down spouts ect.

Now I don't have a big house but still it came in @ over $5k.

So far I like the product am I in love with it @ that price no....

Was it a necessary evil YES! Now Portland, Or has had a lot of rain. And so far It's been doing the job I expected. But what will happen if we have an ice/snow storm like we had in 04-08. We'll see.

To Franka: Really? Gutters handling snow off of the Roof?

You can't be that dumb. You actually got your gutters to handle snow? And gutters do not cause ice dams. I have seen a million houses with no gutters at all and they have huge ice damns.

Carry Jones- the type of rain that would cause overshooting would give any system trouble. Especially in the valley area's of roof tops. I love your comment on surface tension- ("very old concept". that is about the most irrelevent comment you can make.

We are not talking computers here. And \"Not Proven and outdated\". Water WILL adhere to the gutter top and wrap around the top and into the gutter. that is proven.

what other evidence are you looking for. as far as being outdated, i dont think nature has changed to the point where rain water has lost some of its ability to adhere to the gutter top. i dont know how the concept is outdated. Your comments are idiotic at best.

save us all from your stupidity and stop posting. thanks.
