Question DetailsAsked on 2/3/2015

The salesman for Leaf Filter gutter protection system says it is the No. 1 rated gutter protection on Angies List ?

The closest dealership is in St. Louis but I am unable to find anything on Angies List regarding this product.

Do you have the same question? Follow this Question

AL does not review specific products - just vendors and contractors and service providers, and I don't recall AL ever giving specific gutter leaf filter system recommnedations in an article, so this sounds like a bit of a stretch of the truth.

Here are links to a couple of articles by AL on gutter guards, and links to a few prior similar questions with a fair number of responses FYI - more on the subject in the links under those questions nd in the Home > Gutters link in Browse Projects, at lower left.

AS a past dealer for LeafFilter & Gutter Topper the # 1 & #2 Consumer Reports top dealer rated gutter cover systems in 2008 let me give you my 2 cents.

Leaf Filter is a very good system. I still have 60' or so on my own 2nd story rear of my home. It is far superior to All reverse curve systems, Gutter Topper, Leaf Guard, Leaf X , etc.

It has several fatal flaws

It will not handle a heavy rain

It will not self clean-it is a shelf and debris will build up on it -but not clog it.

The stainless filter can NOT be permenately glued to the PVC body, Geocell etc all lose adhesion and allow the filter to blow in the wind,,, But you can reglue it every 6 to 8 yrs .

My preference is MasterShield the latest and greatest by Leaf Filters inventor- Alex Higgenbotham.

This is Kelly M. in Member Care. Thanks for your question! I'm happy to help.

While Angie's List does collect reviews from consumers and display the ratings our members have assigned these providers, there is no particular "Number One" designation from Angie's List. However, we're always happy to recommend some top-rated providers in any of our list categories. I'm afraid I wasn't able to find a result for Leaf Filter specifically, but if you'd like to let us know some more about what kinds of services you're looking for, we'd be happy to assist with a search.

If you would like information on additional providers through this forum, please let us know. You can respond to this thread or submit a new Answers post. You can also reach us at We're happy to help!

Thanks again, and have a great day!
