How much will the LeaFree™ gutter protection system cost?
The cost for installing the gutter protection system is determined by many variables. System installations require an initial inspection and may require work to be done on the existing gutters. Other factors involve the height of your home since this determines some of the specialized equipment that may be necessary. More factors include linear footage and the condition of the existing fascia and roof.

Will LeaFree™ prevent ice dams?
Ice dams are caused by poor insulation and ventilation. So, no, LeaFree™ will not prevent …or cause… ice dams. LeaFree™ can, however, help reduce the amount of ice build-up in your gutters that can cause gutter seams to split, hangers to loosen, and gutters to pull off the house.
Will I have to clean or maintain my LeaFree™ system?
Maintenance on your system may be little to none at all. Like all exterior products on your home, LeaFree™ will get dirty over time. If you notice a build-up of dirt or debris on your system, simply rinse it off with a high pressure nozzle on your garden hose.
