Question DetailsAsked on 10/8/2017

How do you finally get leaf filter back to fix a problem like the one I have ?

I've called several times and have been promised several times the problem would be resolved. I had to prop a 2x4 piece of wood to prevent the gutter form separating from my roof. I couldn't open my front because it's hanging so low, I'm afraid that over five foot section might soon turn into a even bigger problem. Please help, I'm in need of a good inexpensive lawyer at this point. I've spoken to several people at leaf filter and I also had cell numbers, they don't return my calls ,I end up calling them back and get another promise that someone will be here to fix the problem. The next to last answer I got was noone is working in my area, then Iget a call back saying that B is in a area close to me and he'd be to see me in the afternoon but C whom I' ve been calling and talking to couldn't give a time. Well that day 10/07/2017 came and went , I got no call, as usual, please help, I'M getting migranes from the stress of getting no repairs done.

Certainly document your troubles well.

Assuming this is under warranty or a recent installation, if they are unresponsive in doing a repair then your other options would be:

0) be sure you talk to the local franchise owner, not just a receptionist or whoever about this

1) contact Leaf Fitter corporate headquarters to get them to put pressure on the local franchisee to get it done under their warranty

2) contact the Bonding company of the contractor to "call his bond" - getting the bonding company to get the work done at their cost (they then go after the contractor for the money they pay out).

3) lawyer - hate to say it, but "inexpensive lawyer" first of all would likely not be a good one (not to mention being an oxymoron), plus you will pay out far more in legal fees than the repair would cost to get done by a Handyman or Gutter contractor.

One question I have - unless the contractor removed the gutter to apply the gutter cover, it could be that some of the anchor screws on the gutter have just given way - due to short screws, rotting fascia board, or whatever - in which case it might not be the fault of the gutter cover company at all, just deterioration of the gutter - or the weight of the cover and leaves it is retaining are the straw that broke the camels back and the weight (especially if loaded up with wet leaves or tree debris) is causing gutter failure.

I would expect a gutter company or handyman to be able to fix this for about $100-150, ASSUMING it is not because the fascia board behind the gutter is rotting so the screws are pulling out.

Of course, after all is said and done, sounds like a truthful Review on Angies List would be in order.
