How Does LeafFilter™ Work?

The LeafFilter™ Gutter Protection system has been scientifically designed to create the optimal gutter system for your home. LeafFilter’s micro mesh gutter guard, combined with your existing gutters creates a completely sealed system that prevents anything from entering your gutters except for water.

LeafFilter™ is designed around the idea of surface tension. When water flows down your roof towards your gutters and passes over the LeafFilter™ gutter protection system, the micro mesh gutter guard and the rigid vinyl body combine to break the surface tension, pulling the water through the screen and into your gutters. With LeafFilter, homeowners can avoid cleaning for life.

LeafFilter™ Gutter Guards Consist of Five Main Parts


LeafFilter gutter guards utilize a medical grade stainless steel micro mesh gutter guard filter. The micro mesh will not rust or corrode and no organic material will grow on it or adhere to it. The holes on LeafFilter’s micro mesh gutter guard are 50 microns fine, so not even a grain of sand can get into your gutters…ONLY WATER GETS IN YOUR GUTTERS – GUARANTEED!

Rigid Vinyl Body

The LeafFilter™ micro-mesh screen is supported by a patented rigid uPVC frame. uPVC (Unplasticized Poly Vinyl Chloride) is a long-lasting home exterior material that is fade and temperature resistant.LeafFilter™ also contains a titanium dioxide coating that acts as a UV block or “sunscreen,” aiding in color fastness by reflecting ultraviolet rays.

The subtle drip-edge on the front of LeafFilter™ helps keep the front of the gutter clean. Leaves, pine needles, and other debris are diverted over the drip edge while water is pulled through the micro mesh gutter guard into your gutters.
