I am a pissed off customer of Leafguard. I live in Cincinnati and ever since I purchased these gutters I have had nothing but trouble.
After purchase I called several times to have my gutters looked at, because they leaked at the downspouts.They kept putting me off because they told me they were to busy to come out. Then I found out that they had no service people ,because they all had either quit or were no longer with the company. After several weeks someone did come out and did a poor job of fixing them. Then the first winter came and I had Ice cycles across the front and back of my house 2 foot long.
I was afraid to go out my front door as not not to have a ice cycle fall on our heads. I called and complained and was sent a flyer about Ice Dams. I have lived in this house for 27 years and I have never had Ice Cycles before now. Even in the worst winters in Cincinnati we never had problems with Ice cycles.
I called repeatedly and finally someone came out and told me , It was because my attic was not insulated enough, the hot air was freezing at the roof edge where the gutters met the roof. I went and paid an insulation company over $1000 to come out and insulate the roof and soffits. They still are just as bad as before, I have 2 -3 foot ice cycles all around my hose. None of my neighbors , who regular gutters have Ice Cycles, just me.
Also the paint on the downspouts and leaf traps are fading to a white color instead of beige. These gutters suck and wish I could get my money back. This company is a scam The commercials are deceiving, they never show what happens in the cold winters.
Now I know why. Worst decision I ever made in life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Monetary Loss: $2000.
