Did extensive review of the performance of various gutter guard systems on the internet before contacting making a selection. I had purchased and installed another system on our previous house and quickly learned that the "clog free for life" claim of this manufacturer proved to rather vacuous. From my survey of the performance of a number of systems, MasterShield gutter guards came out on top. I then went to MasterShield's website for an installer and they recommended MasterShield VA/MD. I contacted Tom and Matt Kahn, the father and son team who own MasterShield VA/MD and set up an appointment. They came to the house and looked over my system after which we talked. It became quickly obvious that they knew a lot about gutters and gutter guard systems which was very reassuring. I also appreciated Tom and Matt Kahn's low-key sales pitch. Basically, their sales pitch was that we have a good product with an outstanding history of performance; a highly competent installation team, and they were more than willing to answer any and all questions that I had as truthfully and honestly as they could. In the end, I was convinced and we set up an installation date. On the day of installation, their installers arrived almost precisely on time. They were curious, diligent and professional and completed the installation and cleanup of the gutter guards in a timely manner. At the end, they came to the door and showed me their work, mentioned a number of places on the gutter system may need improvement depending on its performance in rain storms, and emphasized that if I had any problems they would could come back and rectify them. The gutter guards have been installed for about a month. Performance has met my expectations. I still need to see how they perform works in the harder rains typical of late summer and early fall before I pass final judgement on the system. To date, I would highly recommend their system and, in particular, I would highly recommend MasterShield VA/MD.
Description of work:
Recently moved into a new house that is located next to a large number of tall trees, so it was obvious that gutter guards were needed along the entire length of our gutter system.
