LeaFree Gutter Guard FAQ

Yes, LeaFree has been tested to handle in excess of 14 inches of rain per hour, which is considerably more rain than any region in North America would receive during a 24-hour period.
LeaFree is made of heavy-duty .024 gauge aluminum and includes a lifetime manufacturer’s warranty. Unlike plastic, aluminum will not warp or distort over time, so it will provide better overall performance and maintain it’s attractive appearance.
No, LeaFree is made of .024 gauge aluminum and cannot be chewed through. The opening at the front of the panels is too small for squirrels and birds to enter the gutters. End caps specifically designed for LeaFree are included with each installation that will keep birds, squirrels and other rodants from entering the ends of the gutters.
Yes, it is designed to install on existing 5″ & 6″ gutters!
No, LeaFree secures under the first row of shingles and is attached to the lip of the gutter with one-half inch color-matching zip screws.
For the better, we believe. LeaFree is designed to slide under the shingles and sits relatively low on the gutter. The low profile design enhances the look of your home, blends in with your roofline, and creates a uniform appearance across your home.

LeaFree is available in 15 colors + copper to match the most popular gutter and shingle colors!

Ice dams are caused by poor insulation and ventilation in a home’s attic. LeaFree will neither prevent nor cause ice dams. LeaFree will reduce the amount of snow and ice build-up in your gutters.
Maintenance on your system may be little to none at all. Like all exterior products on your home, LeaFree will get dirty over time. If you notice a build up of dirt or debris on your system, simply rinse it off with a high pressure nozzle on your garden hose.
This depends on the location of the pine and fir trees in relation to your home. If your gutters clog regularly with pine needles, we recommend selecting one of our micro mesh gutter protection systems that are designed to keep pine needles out of your gutters. If it is limited to one section of your home, then you could purchase LeaFree in the unaffected areas and a micro mesh gutter protection in the areas impacted by the pine needles. If the trees are some distance from your home, then it’s a judgment call that you can determine this by looking at the make-up of leaves and debris in your gutters to determine if pine needles will be an issue on your home.
LeaFree is covered by a limited lifetime material workmanship warranty against product defects. Gutter Guards Direct offers a no-clog warranty as part of its installation program.
