Who has them? What works? What doesn't?
We get a lot of crap falling from trees up in the SoCal Mountains and I've considered these to keep that crap out, because cleaning the gutters is no fun, but the concern I have is with winter (you know, frozen water). If it starts raining first, then gets cold enough to snow (which is really typical where I am) would that freeze up the gutter covers and now you have waterfalls of ice from the gutters?
I know the covers are plastic, but water can build layers of ice on them as well if the temp drops into slush conditions then gets colder. So thats keeping me from buying them.
This, They work really well I have them on both my houses.Easy to install.Our place has hundreds of trees. We get a lot of leaves.
Had the plastic ones that snap in last year. They lasted only a year. This year I had a gutter company put the metal screw in type in. They work much better.
I have 82 ft of gutter on the house and 80 ft on the shop. Can't remember what the online quote was for leaf filter, but it was thousands. ( I think 3800)
I talked to people in town and they all said to call servall company. They cleaned out the gutters and installed the metal ones. Total was $750. They do not look hard to install. Just put them on and sheet metal self-tapers and done. Took 2 guy about 1.5 hrs.
They look something like this.
