Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TruWebs Warning on roofing valleys and inside corners
Not a difficult product to install depending on the condition of your cutters and roof. Be warned of where you have inside corners/roof valleys. Water rush quickly down these valleys and the holes in the gutter shield cannot compensate even a moderate rain fall. You will get over flow of your gutters even with rush guards installed. Amerimax needs a better solution for the inside corner roof valleys. Especially since this is where there is a high volume of water that that usually goes directly to downspout. Leaving corners un protected is not an option as valleys usually also bring lots of leaves and other tree debris. There needs to be a better solution for the corners.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jerry Quality product for self installation
Just completed installation on four gutters. This product is far superior to the plastic gutter guards.
Installing it properly is the key to success:
- Download the instructions; If you don,t have a gutter hanger at a needed support area then install a screw in line with the hanger screw; Screw down the edges to the gutter, this provides increased rigidity and alignment (holes for fastening are provided, use stainless sheet metal screws for gutters); Have proper tools for cutting end sections (tin snips and hacksaw).

I had them installed a few months ago before the spring/summer rain, at hefty cost at that. They work fine for light rain, but not for the traffic stopping heavy rain storms we get in the south. The water flows over them as if the guards had a solid surface. Don't waste your money. Don't get me wrong, they're made solid, but doesn't do what they're supposed to do. You can't use a pellet gun to bring down a deer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Alan Highly recommend Amerimax Diamond Gutter Guard
I highly recommend the Amerimax diamond gutter guard and Gutter Stuff foam with UV and germicide protection. As I get older, I needed a solution so I wouldn't have to climb a ladder to clean out the gutters. Our home is in Georgia and the pine needles and pin oak leaves from trees in or adjacent to our yard clogged my gutters. A national company gave me a quote of $3980 to install their gutter guard product with a surgical mesh screen. As a result, I searched for a best value gutter solution. As a result, I decided to purchase and install on our backyard gutters both the Gutter Stuff foam with UV and germicide protection and Amerimax diamond gutter guard. The foam fills the inside void of the gutter, gives support to the Amerimax gutter guard, and prevents pine needles and small debris from accumulating in the gutter. Recently, we've had 2 heavy downpours of rain and this gutter system channeled the large volume of rain to the downspout and away from the foundation very efficiently. I am now installing the foam and gutter guards on the front of our house.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jojo great gutter guards
I purchased these for my Dad's gutters online and picked up in store. We had someone clean our gutters and put them on and they had no issue with the installation. I like the fact that they are metal as opposed to vinyl or plastic.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hackman Excellent product
These guards handled even the most blinding of rain storms without overflowing. NO overflow at all. They are also all aluminum which means once installed they will last forever. You will not be doing this job twice.
A little pricey, but you get what you pay for I guess..

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by pete So far this product has done very good during the rain.
the gutter guard seems to be working as it should. I'm 73 yrs. old and it was not as easy to install as it seemed to be. It took me many hours to install 40+, 3 ft. pieces. Cutting the angles were not simple for me either. But it's on and so far I am very pleased.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Alan Warps, deforms, useless
I was tired of cleaning out my gutters and thought this was the answer. Now after only 6 months they warped down creating a higher gutter that still needs cleaning out. Also where I had to cut these for a corner it warped to total uselessness. I will remove them and go back to cleaning my gutters.
