Climbing the Ladder in Memphis, Tennessee with Leaf DefierŪ Gutter Filtration Systems

Media, PA, September 02, 2011 --( After serving the local community for 30 years, Rocky Morris embarked on his retirement from the Memphis Fire Department by fulfilling the home improvement needs of residences based throughout Tennessee, Northern Mississippi and Arkansas. Four years ago, this included launching Gutter Inserts of the Midsouth in Oakland, TN to provide superior gutter cleaning and maintenance services to homes ranging from luxury estates to small two-bedroom bungaloes.

“Gutter improvement seemed like an ideal extension of the work I performed for more than two decades,” says Morris. “However, one of the main differences is that I no longer have to climb ladders. I now have four employees who regularly take care of the actual legwork.”

Since founding Gutter Inserts of the Midsouth in 2007, Morris’s firm has completed hundreds of jobs entailing the replacement of damaged gutters, cleaning badly clogged channels and installing complete qualified gutter filtration systems. According to Morris, these efforts are both abundant and intensive given the region’s propensity to stockpile large quantities of pine needles in gutter channels, which then ultimately lead to numerous problems including sags and overflows.

“Clogs are the primary culprit of the vast majority of gutter problems in the area,” explains Morris. “In addition, we have a very large elderly community that requires the ongoing assistance of companies like ours.”

During the early stages of his company, Morris employed a variety of filtration systems to help keep his clients’ gutters free of all forms of twigs, branches, acorns and assorted debris. However, after learning about the Leaf Defier® family of gutter filtration products from FXI Building Products at a local homebuilder show, Morris became enamored with the system, which readily seemed far more durable and flexible than any other competitive product.

Designed with high-performance urethane polymers, Leaf Defier was specifically designed by FXI to easily fit into nearly any gutter to ensure leaves, twigs, pine needles and other possible obstructions and animal food sources are kept from entering and clogging the system. As a result, water flows readily through the foam filter insert, into the gutter valley and out the downspout to virtually eliminate overflows and the collection of stagnant water that can also attract breeding insects and feeding animals.

Recently awarded the prestigious “Green Buildings Product Seal” from due to its ability to meet several significant Green and high-performance building criteria, Leaf Defier® has also become recognized throughout the industry for its ability to prevent sags and related gutter damage as well as overflows that can lead to landscape erosion, foundation cracking and other structural failures.

“Leaf Defier is easily the best gutter filtration product that our company has ever used,” further offers Morris. “Not only is it exceptionally durable, it is also easy to cut and install. On a basic home, it only takes about an hour to install one hundred feet of Leaf Defier. This is a very quick pace that has enabled us to complete several jobs within the course of a single day. Also, we’ve yet to have a complaint.”
