Please take some time to read the information that we have compiled for
you on this subject as there are many companies out there selling products
to the un-informed public, mainly the elderly at extremely high prices. A
simple rule of thumb is take the amount of annual gutter cleaning cost and
multiply it by 15 years (the average life span of a
properly installed gutter system) if the price of your gutter protection is
greater...it's typically not worth the cost.

EXAMPLE: If the cost of cleaning your gutters is $100.00 annually and you
get a quote for a gutter cover of $3500.00

$100.00 x 15 yrs =$1500.00

NOW DIVIDE THE COVER COST BY $1500.00 TO FIND OUT HOW
MANY GUTTER SYSTEMS YOU WILL HAVE TO PURCHASE OVER
THE SAME TIME FRAME.

$3500.00
$1500.00 = 2.33 x 15yrs = 35yrs

In this example  it would take 35 years to justify the cost of the cover price
verses just cleaning them and that would mean the covers/gutter system
would have to last 35 years which is not likely. That means that you would
spend $8155.00 over the same time period replacing the gutters and covers
every 15 years (if the system lasted an average of 15 years). If you do not
plan to spend more than the amount of time in your home it would take to
recoup the cost of the covers you purchase you may want to just pay to have
them cleaned.

LEAF RELIEF
Leaf Relief for standard gutters is more
effective than other types of gutter
protection at keeping natural debris such as
leaves and twigs from blocking your gutters.
Leaf Relief can drain 29.7" of rainfall an
hour and that's more than the highest
rainfall ever recorded (Holt, Missouri 1947
at 12") in one hour. Leaf Relief is one of the
most effective gutter protection system on
the market, it is all most invisible from the
ground.
Leaf Relief lays flat and fits snugly on top of your gutter. Leaf Relief's 25
Year Warranty is your peace of mind that it will keep gutters from
overflowing due to internal gutter clogging. Debris blows off with a gentle
breeze.
Why risk life and limb trying to
keep your gutters and downspout
clean when you can have 24-hour,
year round protection with leaf
relief.
The vision of brilliant color will soon abound signaling the change of
seasons. As nature takes its course, trees exchange their vivid green
leaves in for rich harvest hues. The cycles continues as leaves are shed
from the trees, drift in the autumn wind and decorate the ground with
beautiful colors. While we take in this autumn splendor, it is hard to
imagine the extensive damage that can be caused by something as
delicate as a leaf. Leaves can clog gutters and downspout's resulting in
severe problems and expensive home repairs. There are many gutter
protection products on the market today that can drastically reduce
this risk. During the dry summer months, a leaf-clogged gutter could
be a potential fire hazard as dried leaves are highly flammable. In
damp warm temperatures, it can be a breeding ground for mosquitoes.
According to public health officials, mosquitoes lay their eggs in the
stagnant water of clogged gutters, which is a main concern in the
outbreak of West Nile Virus. Recent reports have suggested that by
keeping gutters and spouts clean and debris-free, homeowners can
reduce their risk of contracting this disease. In the fall and springtime,
leaves can get caught in a gutter, blocking downspout's and causing
water to overflow. This can lead to leakage or even worse, a major
home disaster. When water is trapped, it can seep under the shingles,
though the fascia or into the soffit, where it can cause serious damage
to exterior walls, insulation and drywall. Water damage can also cause
roof deterioration and ground erosion, which can be a particularly
dangerous situation as this affects the foundation of the house. When
winter begins to set in, the leaves, twigs and pine needles that remain in
the gutter begin to decay and form a clay-like substance within the
downspout's.  During the day, snow melts and runs down the roof into
the gutter where, trapped by this dam of debris, it can freeze overnight
causing a serious obstruction. The weight of certain blockages can
cause the gutter to pull away from the house if it is not securely
attached and can cause pooling next to the foundation. Compatible
with all roof systems, LEAF RELIEF, guarantees quality leaf and
debris protection at an affordable price. The system utilizes patented
Aluma-Perf Technology perforated holes keep water flowing and works
efficiently to keep out leaves, twigs, seeds and small debris, including
pine needles. LEAF RELIEF has proven 100 percent effective in a
series of independent tests. LEAF RELIEF offers exceptional volume
capacity, capable of draining 305 inches of water per hour-at least 25
times more flow than most competitors. Most ordinary dry debris is
cleared from the surface with a gentle 6 mph breeze, while wet debris is
removed with a 23 mph wind.  Virtually undetectable from the ground,
LEAF RELIEF adds rigidity and durability to the gutter. The secure
mounting system stays firmly in place to resist high winds, ice and
snow, ladder damage and pest invasion. Because LEAF RELIEF
mounts directly to the gutter, it never requires lifting a shingle. Alcoa
Home Exteriors backs LEAF RELIEF with a 10 year product
warranty. Independent test lab results by Intertek Testing Services,
