We have leafguard gutters on our house - we had no problems whatsoever until the storm last year. We went outside the morning after the windstorm and one of the branches on our cherry tree had broken and had taken out the back corner of the gutter system. This of course was after the 1 year warranty we had received with Leafguard; however, we decided to give them a call - to see what could be done. I was more than pleasently surprised when they said "no problem, we'll be right out". They came checked out the problem, advised me there would be no charge and they would return that afternoon with a replacement for the damaged area. No fuss, no concerns - great service - couldn't be happier with the company and the product!
