8/1/2016 Problems with Product/Service | Read Complaint Details

Additional Notes

Complaint: Gutter Guard/Gutter Glove installed in Spring of 2014. System leaked and clogged with pine needles shortly afterward. Repeated calls to remedy finally resulted in one failed attempt to fix leaks. Also, water pours over roof valley in a steady stream in heavy rain. Baffle added by installer had only minimal - if any - effect. No resolution to pine needle clogging. Product manufacturer claims - from photos furnished - that it was improperly installed, claiming no warranty. Installer (5-Star Remodeling) is unresponsive.

Desired Settlement: In June of 2015, we requested that this system be removed by the installer - with implied refund, since they did not perform as advertised ("Eliminate Gutter Cleaning Forever (TM)") so we could pursue installation of an alternate system. Manufacturer apparently stands by his "improper installation" defense; installer remains unresponsive.

Business Response:

Our gutter guards keep leaves and other debris out of the gutters. Occasionally sap or other sticky substances will accumulate on top of our product causing leaves or needles to stick.  You just need to take a brush to that area. We have the brushes in stock.

We try to seal the gutters as best we can, but sometimes the gutters are in such bad shape that it becomes very difficult. The gutters are not our product.

Valleys at times do have overflow problems. We try to make adjustments to alleviate this. We have a new inside corner to greatly reduce this problem.

Addressing this issue, we would give a free bush, try to seal the gutters once again and install a new inside corner.

Business Response:

All our products are designed to keep leaves and debris out of your gutters and downspouts. If there is a clog IN your gutters or downspouts, we will come out and clean them.  There is no product on the market that a sticky substance will not cling to.

We will come out and seal your gutters. 

Consumer Response:
Complaint: 11501015

I am rejecting this response because:

Sealing the gutters was a supplementary part of the total project.  The fact remains, the product does not perform as it was represented.  Eventually it will have to be removed and replaced with something that works.
