2.0 PRO™ vs. LeafFilter
LeafFilter was the first micro-mesh gutter guard developed in 2001, and while it was a revolutionary product at the time, time has shown that there are some shortcomings to its design. At first glance the 2.0 PRO and LeafFilter may appear similar because they both have a micro-mesh filter on top, but the quality and performance of the two products are very different.
Compare 2.0 PRO to LeafFilter
Made from plastic that expands and contracts.
One of the most common complaints you will read in LeafFilter reviews is that the plastic frame has warped. This happens because of the extreme expansion and contraction that occurs with plastic in hot and cold temperatures causing it to lose much of its performance.
Flat design collects debris.
Because LeafFilter is designed to sit relatively flat in the gutter, it acts like a shelf and causes debris collect on the top of the filter, requiring maintenance to keep it clean.
Screen separation can occur because the stainless steel micro-mesh is fused to the plastic underbody. Both of these materials expand and contract at different rates. This can cause the screen to detach from the plastic underbody over time allowing debris to enter and clog your gutters.
Water overshoots in heavy rain
Because debris has a tendency to collect on top of the gutter guard, it reduces the amount of the filter surface area needed to capture water in a heavy downpour.
No Lifetime Warranty on materials or workmanship.
LeafFilter is backed with a no-clog warranty that only covers if the interior of your gutter system clogs, but no lifetime warranty on the materials or workmanship.
