The contractor-installed gutter guards can't even begin to compete with these. The contractor guards are very expensive, have a variety of flawed designs, and are outrageously priced. Got an estimate from Leaf Filter for $2,300 to do my whole house. The guards had super-fine holes that would impede water flow, they are partly made from vinyl, they require drilling holes in the gutters, and the price is ridiculous. Their warranty guarantees no clogs in the gutters, but provides no guarantee that debris will not pile up on top of their guards blocking water flow into the gutter.
These gutter guards from The Home Depot are solidly constructed all-metal, they attach with miniature hinges to the ends of the shingles (no holes or tools for installation), they are made in the U.S.A., and for about $100 I could do my whole house! Best installation technique is to miter cut the guards at inside corners near valleys, and overlap and stagger the three-foot sections top-bottom-top-bottom, etc., so getting access to any small section of gutter requires lifting just one section or three sections. This is a well-made, well-designed product that saves money big-time. The down-spout strainers are also well made and effective. Highly recommend.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed Don't waste your time and money
Purchased about a year go. Installation was fine but after a year- we have gutters full of leaves and 3 birds nests. They don't work. Since they simply rest in the roof -debree is rushed into gutter with water by pushing the guard upward slightly and there are gaps on the end that anything can go in or out. If there is a significant wind they will flip open. Cleaning the gutters us less work than dealing with these. Would return them if we could!! Save your money we wasted nearly $135 on these.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Matt Very good quality
Some times you have to change a product to better suit your needs. I had seamless gutters so clips
did not fit well on inside of gutter. Also I did not like the idea of the screen laying on the roof. I screwed the screen on a 4X4 and used the edge for a guide. With a jig saw and metal blade I cut off 1 inch,
lengthwise. This way the screen fit under the roof drip edge and the other side against the gutter
inside. The gutter hanger acted as a support. The screens were overlapped 1 inch And attached to each other with #12 sheet metal screws.

Was easy to install and fit a non-standard 5" gutter used as a structural member for pool cage construction. I also have a 7" similar gutter on my pool cage and wish there was a guard of the appropriate size for it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NickyD Just installed these and will add more after the fall
Bought 3 boxes and installed them today, so I can't review yet as to how they keep the gutters clean but I will come back and write a review after the fall. I did not install as per manufacturer, many reviews said that the hinges would blow the guard open. I did follow others advice as to flattening the guards and slipping them under the first layer of shingles. See pictures. I also recommend buying a box of self tapping screws and screwing in the guards every so often or when you can not clip the gaurds onto the gutter. I actually overlapped each piece and added a screw to hold down both pieces at the overlaps. Wear gloves, I did not and my hands look like they went through a meat grinder. 150' took me about 5 hours, stopping after every piece to move the ladder and level it off.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by USAguy Simple and effective
The guard fit my gutters just fine. Installation was simple enough and has blocked the usual collection of leaves and debris that would normally clog the canals.
I suggest to wear gloves to protect from the sharp edges and to over lap a bit between guards. The investment was well worth it, it covered more than half of my home with one box. Compared to other models, this was the best option for me. When finished it does not stand out or look ugly which is good.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RACY Happy with installation
Product is easy to put up. All that is needed is a ladder and some gloves. I chose to overlap sections on installation, we'll see how that works. No issues so far. Product does show from a ground up view where other products are inviisible. After choosing invisible previously, this one is a better choice for performance and ease of cleanout..

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SWB1 Could Not Get Clips To Stay
Like other reviewers, I could not get the clips to stay on the gutter. My gutters are only 4 years old and so must be a common newer style. The part of the gutter that the clips go on is not bent in a manner that allows the clips to slide on and then lock. This part of my gutter is too thick to accept the clip. I even tried mashing that part of the gutter down, but was not satisfied that the clips would hold the screens on when the wind begins to blow. Home Depot has a good return policy so I will be taking these back to the store.
