Leaf guard appears to be the most expensive gutter protection system available. You have to give Leaf Guard some credit, they were a pioneer in the gutter protection industry but their design hasn’t leaf guard gutter system changed much and was a great idea about 15 years ago.
The trough of this system is unsupported and can sag. The sagging can let debris into the system and can lead to an uneven, unsightly opening to the front of the gutter. The brackets for this system are the weakest of the big three full replacement systems. The trough of this product is undersized at 4 1/2 inches (measuring diagonally doesn’t count). With that little hood can it handle the rain in Chicago? And finally, the weird appearance of the leaf guard system is outdated and a poor choice for any home.
It is really hard to justify their super high prices, other than maybe to cover their huge Chicago television commercial budget.
