The LeafGuard Brand by Englert is known to be the world’s only one-piece seamless covered gutter system that attaches to your fascia board, not underneath the shingles.

This unique, patented system will draw the rainwater down and around the underside of its hood and into the gutter, detecting any debris while the gravity forces any water into the gutter.

How much do LeafGuard gutters cost per foot?

On average, the cost of LeafGuard gutters will depend on the length of your gutters, your home’s shape, gutter type, gutter conditions, number of stories, the number of downspouts and who you hire.  From our research, it appears you should be prepared to spend anywhere between $30 to as much as $100+ per foot for labor and removing your old gutters, but we were able to find so many variables online.  However, with so many factors to consider, it can be hard to offer an exact quote.  For this very reason, we highly recommend gathering free quotes from HomeAdvisor.com.  Here, you simply explain your job and licensed contractors in your area will email you no-obligation quotes.

We scoured the Internet and were able to find so many quotes people received.  Again, since there’s such as large range, we will let the estimates in the table below offer you an idea of what you may pay:

Job DescriptionQuoted They Received
10 feet$1,400
11 feet$1,200 at Costco w/ two downspouts
16 feet$1,627
20 feet$2,200
42 feet$3,000 after discounts
118 feet$7,900

LeafGuard gutters overview

The estimates above should include the gutters, downspouts, hardware required and the labor.

The LeafGuard branded system uses .032 gauge aluminum and is attached every two feet with internal hanging brackets.  As for the appearance, it does come in a wide variety of colors, allowing you to pick a style that complements your home.

Tips to know

In laboratory tests, LeafGuard was able to handle up to 32 inches of rainfall, which is three times the amount of the heaviest rainfall ever recorded by the U.S. Weather Bureau.

How can I save money?

Don’t accept the first quote you receive as many people were able to knock another 10 to 15 percent off their initial estimate.  Whether it’s haggling or looking for a promotion code, there are many ways to save.  Be prepared, however.  If you were to have an official salesperson come out, many claim it’s very high pressure, often forcing you into a contract that day.

LeafGuard is just one of the many “gutter guards.”  Be sure to compare other gutter guard brands as the prices can range from as little as $3 to $5 per foot for a DIY job to as much as $30+ per foot for a complex system.

How much did you spend?

Was it worth it?  

  1. Jane (belmont,  North Carolina) paid $8000 and said:

    They charged my son way too much. Don’t pay this amount. It just leads to bad news!

    Was it worth it? No

  2. Susan (Armonk,  New York) paid $3200 and said:

    Great investment especially in a wooded area. It’s been at least 25 years.

    Was it worth it? Yes

  3. LG (Trumbull,  Connecticut) paid $3000 and said:

    $3000 per 150 linear foot

    Was it worth it? Yes

  4. Ed (wallingford,  Connecticut) paid $2666 and said:

    92′ of gutter and 68′ of gutter leader pipe. And 12 months no pay no interest.

    Was it worth it? Yes

  5. Charles Belsito (Seven Hills,  Ohio) paid $5100 and said:

    leaf filter

    Was it worth it? Yes

  6. Edward O'Boyle (Fox Lake,  Illinois) paid $3270 and said:

    Prepaid and had the system installed today. They cleaned and fine tuned the pitch of the pre-existing gutters, reworked the downspouts and installed the LeafFilter system. My house and garage are surrounded by trees and the last gutter guards I had always had leaves stick on top of them, rendering them practically useless. The LeafFilter rep told me that not only will they now include my gutters and downspouts in their lifetime guarantee, but should the fascia rot, then they will handle that as well! I was a bit sticker shocked, I’ll admit… but considering I’ll never have to be on a ladder alongside my house or garage again, plus they’re guaranteeing their product and all the extras, figured why not?

    Was it worth it? Yes

  7. Steve (Lakeland,  Tennessee) paid $5990 and said:

    $5990 for 220 linear feet of leaf guard on my existing gutters which were in excellent condition. I probably paid too much, but have no desire to get up on a ladder 2 or three times a year to clean gutters. I have a lot of trees on two sides of my house, so they fill up quickly there. I just had the system installed a month ago, and all the leaves were already off the trees, so I can’t yet comment on the performance of the system. I do like the lifetime guarantee and the piece-of-mind it gives me. I had a quote for $250 to just clean the gutters out from another contractor, so if I multiply that by 2-3 times per year, the system will “pay for itself” in about ten years.

    Was it worth it? Yes

  8. BT (Grass Valley,  California) paid $17999 and said:

    A LeafGuard salesman quoted us, for 225 linear feet, 5 outside miter corners, 4 inside miter corners, and 7 downspouts, with both a a smile and a friendly tone to his voice the sum of $17,999. However, through the goodness in his heart and if we made the deal at that exact moment, and paid the sum total in cash, again that day, he could offer me the same gutter package for the heavily discounted sum of 15,999. Wow! Not $80.00 per linear foot but $71.11. Well, then there is sales tax +?. …. I feel maybe another quote . . . or a few more may set my mind at ease. Who said crime doesn’t pay?

    Was it worth it? Yes
