Leaf guards are a generic name for gutter covers, guards and screens.
LeafGuard® is the registered trademark of a brand of gutters that is the only patented one-piece covered gutter system in America.
As with many products that are the originals, their Brand Names become the commonly used name to describe similar products – Kleenex, Vaseline, and Xerox are examples of this.
Often companies which sell added-on leaf protection products, try to cash-in on the LeafGuard brand name, by referring to their products as "gutter leaf guards." However, even though these competitors call themselves "leaf guards." they are not LeafGuard® Brand gutters. They are add-ons to existing, ordinary, open gutters.
Essentially they are adding a layer to open gutters, which in most cases, is a bulky-looking and noticeable attachment. An add-on can void your roof warrantee if it is nailed or screwed into your roof.
An add-on gutter leaf guard only attempts to copy the functionality, reliability and sleek styling of a LeafGuard® gutter. In reality, add-ons, whether covers, hoods, screens or filters, are much less effective than a LeafGuard one-piece system. And if you have to install a new gutter under one of these ad-ons, you are simply multiplying your costs for leaf protection.
