This product and any other like it that these companies are trying to charge the prices they are is uncanny. Leafguards pricing when you break it down is between $25-$30/ft. That is outrageous when you look at regular 5 inch gutters installed will usually be between $5-$10/ft. installed. And they will sell it as it is such a custom system when in actuality the only difference between these and regular gutters is the coil of aluminum is about 5 inches wider and when it runs through the machine it bends that extra metal over the top of the gutter itself like a helmet. This extra 5 inches of aluminum does not equal $15-$20 more in cost per foot.
There is a reason they are so insistent that they have to send a salesman to your house, because it is not different than a vacuum cleaner salesman, its not about the product, its about the sale of the product and why you should pay so much for it, they know that if they don't send a salesman to tell you how great the product is and they just gave you a bid by the feet of gutter you need they would only sell maybe 5% of the estimates. Why would you need to be shown a PowerPoint on Gutters? Also know that when the salesman comes out and finally gets around to giving you a price, know that the price is going to be twice as high as it will be by the end of the conversation, because due to your sticker shock he will then all of the sudden start lowering the price with rebates and add on's. Just know, your not special, they do this on every job because they know even the final price is high, so by starting out even higher, by the end they will have you convinced your getting some great deal, when in actuality the final # by no means is a deal either.
Can you find people that have the product that like it, absolutely, in the end the product probably isn't that bad. But you have to remember that if they have the product they also paid that high price and so they themselves know they *** well better like it for how much they paid for it. Its like someone who say, buys a designer purse and pays $1000 it, the thing could be junk, but they would never tell you that because they know by admitting that they look like a rube.
My suggestion would be, if your having leaf problems call a regular gutter guy and talk to them about what you options are, if he independently owns his machine he will have several options for you that fit on your existing gutters so your not rebuying something you already have and are at different price points and likely all of those price points will be lower than this LeafGuard product.
