Leaf G[uard and Good Housekeeping iceing complaint
Unfortunately we recentl;y purchased (in the Spring of 2009) Leaf Guard for our side by side ranch condo.We note in their advertising that they had the Good Housekeeping seal of approval. We talked our neighbor into installing it on the condo at a cost over $6000. Both of us are retired and have healt problems and connot climb ladders to clean our gutters.
In the Wisconsin climate icicles form due to thawing and freezin. The lip slot on the Leaf Guard freezes over and the water runs off the rooof as if there were no gutters. For the first time in the ten years we have lived here we have water in our basement and walls of the house. Also ice forms under the eves of the house due to the icicles driping. They hang along the total length of the gutter and get up to six feet long. Gutters are supposed to take the water away from the house.
We replaced the roof heating cables we had for over 5 years with Leaf Guard since the original 4" gutters would get clogged with leaves and we had to hire a service at least three times a year to have them cleaned. We never had icicles or icing as with Leaf Guard.
Contacted Good Housekeeping for an advertised woarranty complaint form and not received a reply. How about a class action suite against Leaf Guard and Goodhousekeeping?
