For the most value as far as peformance for the price - Leaf Relief from PlyGem. If you were looking to spend a little more to go with a helmet style guard instead of a cover I highly reccomend TruGuard. Hope this helps!

I would not purchase Leaf Filter system again.  In 3 years it has done a good job of keeping debris out of the gutters, but the black stripes that form on the front of the gutter between every 4' section of gutter guard are unacceptable!  The tech support rep for Leaf Filter said to just get up on a 2 story ladder and wash the stain off each year if it bothers me.  Totally defeats main objective of the system--keep me off of a ladder!!

I agree with all of the above comments. The best is to start with the roof or where a leak is coing in from. Get that taken care of and then work on the foundation. 

Make sure you hire a licensed and insured roofing and foundation companies. Also ask about the warranties they offer.

Has anyone ever tried gutter guards from LeafFilter?  They seem like a pretty good design but just wondered if anyone had ever used them and what your experience was.  Thank you.

I think the solar panels can be fitted at the other places too like on the terrace. If you can have much space in front of your house, you can utilize it with the swimming pool in your yard Which will help to make your home look beautiful and also help to increase the value of that property. For those, who wish to have a swimming pool in their yard, can take help of this site to contact professionals and have glass pool fencing near your swimming pool.

A good way to add value to your house is to do home improvement. Many renovation and home additions add value to the house. Also, painting by interior painting San Jose is a good way to add value to the house. One of the simplest and most cost-effective improvement is house painting. Low-maintenance landscaping also adds value when you sell your house.

The pictures were very helpful - thank you.  It looks like only the first ply/layer came apart which is not optimal but minimal risk for coming apart allowing the ridge vent to come off especially if they used every nail hole during installation. The bug barrier appears to be intact and the breakage of the plywood would not interfere with that.

Many pests like raccoons, squirrels or mice crawl into the house through the attic and crawl spaces if there are no barriers to prevent them from getting in. They may have mites, fleas, bugs and other pests, which may infest your home. Therefore it is necessary to implant a proper barrier and maintain a proper ventilation in our attics. The pest exterminator New Jersey professionals may also be consulted for the same to get better suggestions.

That would really be a question for the roofer on the split wood.  As for a bug barrier; that would be a question for a pest control company but that has never been a significant issue in our experience.  It is very important that there be adequate ventilation in all attic spaces that are not heated.
