Frequently asked questions about
Byers’ Leaf Guard.
Everyone offers a guarantee. How is yours different?
Byers' provides the ONLY no-clog guarantee with NO EXCLUSIONS. So if your gutters ever clog, for any reason, we’ll clean them for free. No fine print, no excuses. We clean them – end of story. No one else offers such a simple, ironclad guarantee.
I have a lot of oak and pine trees. Will Leaf Guard keep the leaves, acorns and needles out?
Yes. Leaf Guard effectively sheds leaves, needles, seeds, acorns, twigs – just about anything you can throw at it. If small debris does get in, Leaf Guard’s oversized troughs and downspouts allow the material be be flushed out with every rain.
Does Leaf Guard work with heavy snow and ice?
Yes. Snow and ice roll off the edge just like debris does. With conventional gutters, snow and ice can build up and pry the gutters right off your home. That won’t happen with Leaf Guard. Also, as snow and ice pile up on conventional gutters or flat-topped gutter covers, ice dams can lead to water backing up under your roof. Leaf Guard’s curved design sheds snow and ice, minimizing the likelilhood of ice dams. Many customers use heat tape to keep ice from forming on the edges of their roofs, which is completely compatible with LeafGuard.
How much rain can Leaf Guard handle?
The Lea fGuard system has be independently tested under laboratory conditions to accept 33 inches of rainfall per HOUR – an amount well above any recorded occurrance anywhere in the world. In fact, the average rainfall in our area is 15-53 inches per YEAR.
Will Leaf Guard affect my roof warranty?
No. Leaf Guard installs on the fascia boards or rafter tails, so no attachment points ever go through your roof (unlike conventional gutters, which have straps that nail into the roof sheathing.) Your roof warranty is safe with us.
