At Leaf Slugger™, we are people with a true zeal for gutter protection. That might seem, at first blush, like a strange thing to be passionate about. Most people don’t spend much time thinking about gutter protection at all, but that’s the very reason we feel so strongly about it-we know that it’s far too often neglected, and we’re enthusiastic for helping address your gutter protection needs so that you don’t have to!
We believe that what we offer our clients is truly meaningful. Our gutter protection technology keeps homeowners from having to clean their gutters, which not only saves them time, but also saves them from potentially life-threatening accidents. What’s more, out gutter protection products can make a whole world of difference in protecting homes from moisture and water damage.
The Origins of Leaf Slugger™
Our company was founded in 2001 in the beautiful hills of Hickory, North Carolina. We began with two core principles-quality, and value-and with these two facts:
[plain]That in the United States, there is a $100 billion industry to repair problems related to water damage-problems that are almost always avoidable through proper gutter protection.
Inferior gutter protection techniques have been around ever since 1906, when chicken wire was first used to guard gutters from debris.[/plain]
From there, we surveyed the most common problems with existing gutter protection technology-and applied our own expertise and innovation to come up with viable solutions:
[plain]Problem 1: Attaching a gutter protection product to a gutter actually weakens the gutter.
Leaf Slugger Solution: We designed our unique Speed Bracket-which actually strengthens gutters when it’s applied properly.[/plain]
[plain]Problem 2: A gutter protection product must allow water into the gutter while keeping debris out.
Leaf Slugger Solution: Our product has a water-directing opening of just 3/8″-the smallest in the industry![/plain]
[plain]Problem 3: Gutter protection technology must be stable enough that it won’t blow away in severe weather.
Leaf Slugger Solution: Our technology is tested and certified to withstand 110 mile-per-hour wind loads, and up to 190 pounds of pressure. You can stand on this product and it won’t break![/plain]
[plain]Problem 4: The system must also be strong enough to handle huge volumes of water, snow, and ice.
Leaf Slugger Solution: We innovated an attachment system that keeps our product anchored to the roof and to the gutter.[/plain]
And those aren’t the only concerns we address, either. We loaded our product with other features.
Additional incorporated features:
- We make our product with primary materials-including the thickest (.027 gauge) aluminum used in the industry-to ensure it has a long life.
- We designed the product with installation flexibility; attach it to either the roof or the fascia board.
- Our gutter protection system has the lowest profile in the industry, ensuring it looks great with your roof line!
- Our system is designed to attach on top of your existing gutters, which not only saves you from costly replacements, but it is also Earth-friendly!
- Our product comes in a dozen different colors-that’s eight more than what most other companies offer!
- Leaf Slugger’s™ products are all proudly made in America.
