LEAFDEFLECTOR ™ - Frequently Asked Questions
What is LEAFDEFLECTOR™?
LEAFDEFLECTOR™ is a moisture management system that can be applied to new or existing gutters effectively keeping leaves, pine needles, and other debris from entering while allowing rainwater to flow freely through the gutter. This revolutionary leaf guard system protects your gutters from clogging, therefore eliminating the destructive effects overflowing water can have on your home.
How does LEAFDEFLECTOR™ work?
LEAFDEFLECTOR™ works on the scientific principle of surface tension. (To see surface tension in action hold a drinking glass sideways under a running faucet. Note how the water clings to the glass ) Applying this principle to specially designed aluminum panels and using the same nose forward technology of an expired patent, LEAFDEFLECTOR™ will perform in the most adverse weather conditions, allowing rainwater in while keeping gutter clogging debris out.
How is LEAFDEFLECTOR™ installed?
LEAFDEFLECTOR™ is installed by a trained gutter protection technician. Each technician will first inspect gutters for proper function. Gutters will be cleaned, adjusted, secured, and sealed if needed. (Gutter replacement is also available) The brackets used are unique to the industry and do not use screws to penetrate the gutter, fascia board or roof deck. The rear portion of the panel is secured beneath the shingle. LEAFDEFLECTOR™ can also be modified for other applications.
