Leaf Solution Review [2021]: Pros, Cons, Pricing & Installation

Gutters without guards are debris magnets, filling up with leaves, pine needles, asphalt, sticks, and everything else you could possibly imagine.

When the debris becomes too much it clogs your gutters, which then requires you to get up on a ladder, get on your gloves, and fish around for dirty clumps of moldy debris or you risk your gutter causing water damage to your home or attracting pests to it.

Avoid the tedious task of cleaning out your gutters, and avoid possibly damaging your home by installing a Leaf Solution gutter guard. This complete Leaf Solution review evaluates the pros and cons of their gutter guard system compared to other gutter guards on the market

The Leaf Solution Company

After owning the largest gutter company on the east coast for 20 years, Evelyn Roberts founded Leaf Solution in 2001 with the mission to invent a quality gutter cover that actually effectively worked.

Spoiler alert: She succeeded.

Her family-run company pioneered gutter guards almost 2 decades ago and has been innovating ever since, inventing, developing, and manufacturing the industry’s most advanced gutter solutions.

They have experience with virtually every variety of gutter guards but have chosen to focus on what they’ve determined are the two most effective types: mesh and perforated gutter guards.

These American-made products are created with the highest quality standards. Leaf Solution believes in the quality of their gutter guards so much that they even offer an impressive 20-year warranty on them.

Currently, they have 3 featured products, Leaf Solution Pro, Xtreme Gutter Guards, and New Wave Gutter Guards. We will be focusing on Leaf Solution Pro in this review.

Leaf Solution Pro Gutter System Overview

When it comes to gutter guards, you’ll have trouble finding a system as effective as LeafSolutionPRO. This impressive gutter guard maximizes your roof and gutter protection with its innovative mesh design.

Incorporating a custom-engineered 440-micron, stainless-steel mesh that balances having holes large enough to maximize water flow, but not so large that they let in debris, this mesh is extremely effective at keeping your gutters clean and running. The holes are so small that even shingle grit won’t be able to pass them.

LeafSolutionPRO isn’t just a mesh screen that you place over your gutters. It’s much more complex than that with a patented triple-dip Capillary Diversion System designed to capture all rainwater, whether its a sprinkle or torrential downpour.

The stainless-steel mesh is assembled using a patented hemming process and is integrated, vertically and horizontally with a durable substrate that prevents it from separating, sagging, and stretching so you won’t have to cash in on this system’s impressive 20-year warranty.

Pros & Cons of Leaf Solution Pro

Not only do they enable efficient water flow so that your gutters don’t get backed up, and only a minimal amount of rain sloshes over them, they also have small holes that only let in the most microscopic debris.

Leaf Solution’s gutter guard system is one of the best on the market, but that doesn’t mean that it is without its disadvantages. One con to buying a Leaf Solution gutter guard system is that it’s expensive and can be a hassle to install.

There have also been numerous complaints online about the Leaf Solution customer service team which throws into question how easy they are to work with if you are dissatisfied with your gutter guards. However, overall the pros outweigh the cons when it comes to Leaf Solution gutter guards.

Leaf Solution Pro Features

LeafSolutionPRO is specifically designed to maximize gutter and roof protection with its innovative and patented features. With custom-engineered 440-micron, stainless-steel mesh these guards have holes small enough to block shingle grit but big enough that they don’t inhibit water flow.

With a patented triple-dip Capillary Diversion System these gutter guards can capture all types of rainwater, whether it’s a sprinkle or a downpour, forcing the stream into the gutter. The mesh is integrated so it functions vertically AND horizontally with a durable substrate.

The patented hemming process that holds the guard together prevents the mesh from separating, sagging, and stretching, so it continues to work just as well, even as time passes.

Efficiency of Leaf Solution Pro Gutter Guard System

The LeafSolutionsPRO is backed by a 100% No Clog guarantee. If your system clogs or you feel anything but satisfied with it then you could cash in on Leaf Solution’s Money-Back Guarantee.

However, it’s unlikely that you will feel anything but satisfied because every Leaf Solution gutter guard is thoughtfully made and carefully installed. Only the best materials possible are used to make each gutter guard and every one is tested to see if it’s compliant with Leaf Solution’s rigorous quality standards.

How Leaf Solution Pro Compares to Other Systems

While Leaf Solution is one of the best gutter guard systems on the market, BackyardBoss would say that the king of gutter guards is the LeafFilter.  Similar to Leaf Solution, LeafFilter sells mesh gutter guards with super fine holes that allow water to flow through but not debris.

It efficiently keeps all types of debris from entering your gutter, can be easily installed by LeafFilter professionals onto existing gutters in less than a day, and is made from a durable material that is so long-lasting this system has a lifetime warranty.

With a helpful customer service team, longer warranty, and more positive reviews, LeafFilter is the superior gutter guard to Leaf Solution. However, if you are comparing Leaf Solution to all the other gutter guards on the market, it blows them all away.

Leaf Solution Pro Customer Reviews

What shocked me while perusing the internet for Leaf Solution reviews was how few reviews there actually are on the company, despite how long it has been in business. This could be seen as a good thing, after all, everyone knows customers are far more likely to leave negative reviews than positive ones, or it could be viewed as there being a lack of passionate Leaf Solution customers.

On RevDex, Leaf Solution received a 1/5 star rating with many people complaining about their customer service. Of course, there were only 10 reviews and as I mentioned earlier, people are more likely to leave negative reviews than positive ones, but still, it’s not great that everyone who reviewed Leaf Solution on RevDex had an overwhelmingly negative experience with the company.

How to Order Leaf Solution Pro

If you are interested in ordering a Leaf Solution Pro gutter system, you can enter your information into the Homeowner Request / Installer Locator Page on their website.

As a company, Leaf Solution does not sell directly to homeowners but rather goes through thousands of hand-selected and licensed contractors to sell and install their products.

Once you enter your information into the above form, an Account manager will review it and then find a contractor that will work best for your needs. You should receive a recommendation back within 1-2 business days after submitting the form.

Leaf Solution Pro Warranty

One of the most impressive things about the Leaf Solution system is its incredible 20-year warranty. With a warranty that long you can rest assured that your investment is protected, and if you feel anything but satisfied you can alert the company in order to activate their 100% Satisfaction Money-Back Guarantee.


Leaf Solution truly has one of the best gutter guards on the market. Between the efficient micro-mesh design, an impressive 20-year warranty, and its Capillary Diversion System that can even handle torrential downpours, you will not be disappointed with the LeafSolutionPRO.
