What Is LeafGuard?

LeafGuard® is a unique rain gutter protection system for your home. All gutters carry water away from you home, but only LeafGuard does it with a one-piece, patented, debris-shedding design that is better than any other gutter on the market today. back arrow

How LeafGuard Works

The Englert LeafGuard gutter system works on the scientific principle of Liquid Adhesion. The gutter’s patented design allows rainwater to travel down and around its curved hood and into the gutter, while deflecting leaves and debris. back arrow

LeafGuard on TV

In most do-it-yourself and home improvement shows, gutters are an afterthought or not even mentioned at all. Not true about LeafGuard Brand gutters. LeafGuard is so unique in the marketplace that it’s worth talking about and mentioning by name. back arrow

The Leaves Won’t Leave on Their Own

 

A big complaint that we hear from LeafGuard customers in the Fall is “ever since I installed LeafGuard gutters, there are more leaves in my yard than ever!” This should come as a welcomed side-effect of no-clog gutters, as there are now no leaves filling up your gutters and blocking water flow. All those leaves that used to fill up your gutters are now on your lawn and around your house.

As this is the high season for leaf-fall and removal, here are some methods of leaf removal with helpful tips. A good resource to check out before you start is a Fall Foliage Chart. You can count on leaves coming down in earnest a couple weeks after their “peak” time listed.

Rake – For some, it’s a seasonal ritual. For others, a seasonal burden. Hate it or love it, we’ve all done it, and it will cost you the least but probably consume the most amount of your time. One thing to consider is that raking leaves burns calories.


Leaf Blower – These electric or gas powered leaf eliminators come as blowers or blower vacuums. A leaf blower simply blows the leaves around, while the vacuum type has the ability to suck leaves up into a bag, and some will even crush them and compact them automatically. They come in handheld or backpack form, the backpack machines are normally bigger and heavier, so the backpack allows you to use it for longer without straining yourself.

Hire Someone – If you’ve installed LeafGuard gutters because you’re the type that likes to relax on the weekends rather than spending hours on the roof, than this might be the option for you. A landscaping company will leave your yard looking immaculate, but not without charging a hefty price. It might be nice to give a kid in the neighborhood 20 or 30 bucks to take care of it, even if a few leaves go un-raked.

Fun Tip: However you decide to handle your leaves, get Fall-themed bags and add some decoration to your lawn, or let young kids jump around on them.  Make sure that there is supervision and that you check the kids for ticks and wash up afterwards.

LeafGuard wants you to enjoy this seasonal beauty, but also be prepared for the challenges that this time of year presents.  Some extra leaves on the ground to take care of is a benefit, in our eyes, of a gutter system doing its job.
