Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Canzim Works well; installs moderately easily
I installed this gutter guard on a single story ranch style house situated under 10 very tall leafy trees (maples and tulip poplars). Prior to installation of this product I was up on a ladder at least four times a year clearing the gutters of leaves, maple keys and what have you. Now that it has been up almost three years, I have checked to see if it has moved (it hasn't) and that it is clear enough to drain away water (it is). Now I don't have any reason to climb a ladder to clear gutters.
The installation was moderately easy (I did it with help from my brother) once we figured out how to do the corners. These weren't difficult but they do take some effort to get right. We did use rivets in places to hold the guard in place (corners and short pieces) if we thought that it might shift. We used fewer than 100 rivets over a 300 foot installation. These may not have been necessary but I wasn't willing to go back up later. Also to note, we ended up with very little scrap because we were careful.
Lastly, the only tools we needed were a ladder, tin snips, a jig saw with metal cutting blade, tape measure, drill and rivet gun and rivets, permanent marker, safety glasses, and really tough gloves. You might need additional tools and safety equipment depending on your installation
I am very pleased with this product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Greg Best value available but still overpriced
These are the best value on the market. Way more effective than most "systems" that cost thousands. Looks and performance can't be beat. For what these cost to manufacture, the price is a little high, but worth it. Metal is very strong, durable and effective. No leaf or particle build up and invisable from the ground. Color matches shingles. Do not buy anything else.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tim1 This is a great gutter guard
I have installed a section of this guard to test its effectiveness and so far it has worked very well. It has withstood very heavy rains and the water drained in the gutter and not over the gutter as with previous guards. I plan on buying more.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BusyB Great Product
Product is a bit pricey but is well made and easy to install. I didn't need to cut it so I can't comment on how difficult cutting the steel would be. Has handled very heavy rain with no problem.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Doug Sturdy but limited drainage holes limits capacity
Nice sturdy steel construction, relatively easy to install if your gutters are in good shape. I wish there was an additional set of perforations to increase the ability to catch water as it comes across the guard. I still get water draining past the guard and over the edge of the gutter.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dawnrb It was easy to install.
For the cost I felt I ot my monies worth, The true test will the be if they stay in place and hold up during a hail storm and high winds. But so far am pleased with the product. I chose this product after an in depth review of similar products

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jimler looks great
With dark color will not discolor like white guards. Has kept the leaves out, somewhat easy to install, need tin snips as well as metal hand saw. Have not seen how well they work in heavy rain yet. Rated very high on consumer reports.
