Hard to beat THAT combo! Local gutter installer talked me into the Valor Gutter Guards from Artesian Home Products. They were twice the price of his other product but he convinced me I would never clean my gutters again (you've see ads for gutter companies hi-lighting the idea people buy these to AVOID ladders) so I went for it. Big mistake. HUGE! I was getting my guard less gutters cleaned out once a year. This spring I had to clean off their guards 8-10 times. The screens kept clogging. Water was forced down between the house and the gutter which will lead to soffit and siding damage. And the balance went over the backed up guards and soaked my deck in sections under the clogs for days. I went to them. I was promptly called a "liar". I was told that the large stain in the pictures I sent was "just drips". And I was told that it was completely acceptable to expect to have to clean off the guards. The the employee that called me a liar even sent me a picture of a brush on and extension pole and told me I could use a ladder to reach the guards. Most of my gutters are 24' up. Now instead of an annual clean, I have to clean them off in sections a couple times a week in the spring (when our southern leaves fall). He told me that the gutters were taking (some) water away from the house and that is all they warranty. If it takes SOME water, the garbage 10 year warranty is null and void. Now I am out the price of new gutters plus the once they took off to accommodate this horrible product. And if I want WORKING guards from another company, I will have to start from scratch. Unless you only have straight sections of gutters and no corners AND have NO trees near your house, DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT!
