Battling the Rain & Snow in Spokane, Washington with Leaf DefierŪ Gutter Filtration Systems

Media, PA, September 12, 2011 --( As the name implies, Rainman Seamless Rain Gutters of Spokane, WA has specialized in the replacement and installation of copper, steel and aluminum rain gutters throughout Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho for nearly two decades. With eight full-time employees and five well-stocked cube vans at their disposal, Rainman averages more than 100 residential and commercial jobs per month to easily make it the region’s largest seamless rain gutter installation and service company.

“Our attention to detail, customer service and quality is what separates us from competitors,” says Rick Garrett, who has been Rainman’s owner since 2006. “In addition, we stand behind every product we use with a 10-year workmanship warranty. That is why we continue to have so much success and regularly receive so many referrals, which is the heart of our business.”

In addition to offering more than 70 colors of aluminum and steel seamless rain gutters as well as a complete selection of half-round aluminum and copper gutter products to meet all client needs, Rainman also services customer needs for superior gutter filtration systems in a climate that can be especially brutal on most products. This includes adverse winter conditions that can allow ice to build-up under the cover of inferior products and roofing to cause sags, overflows and other structural or moisture-related problems.

“Over the years, we’ve reviewed approximately 50 gutter protection systems, only to find that the vast majority either didn’t meet our quality specifications or did not perform as we expected in our climatic conditions,” explains Garrett. “Furthermore, some of these products worked well on leaves, but allowed pine needles to get sucked into the rain gutters to create blockages, while others did not effectively handle the accumulation of snow and ice that we receive throughout the course of the winter. Another consideration is wasps and bees, which regularly nest in customer gutter channels.

“Based on our extensive research, we now only offer Leaf Defier gutter filtration systems simply because it’s the best possible option among all the available choices. It does an excellent job of keeping gutters free of all forms of debris, while also offering a secure protective covering against all forms of pests and insects. In eight-and-one-half years, we have never received a single call back relating to a Leaf Defier malfunction. Plus, no other product to our knowledge is both UV-coated and offers a 25-year warranty.”

Designed with high-performance urethane polymers, Leaf Defier was specifically designed by FXI Building Products 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 Defer is the only gutter filtration product we sell to customers. In addition to meeting all their quality needs, Leaf Defier is lightweight, durable and extremely easy to handle. It is also 30 percent quicker to install than competitive systems since it doesn’t require any form of mounting to the structure. In most instances, a one or two man crew can complete an entire Leaf Defier installation in less than one-half-day.”
