Leaf Filter

In December of 2023, I stopped house sitting and signed on to work with a company serving Ottawa and surrounding areas. The company is called Leaf Filter.

What is Leaf Filter?

Leaf Filter is a 23 year old company (almost 24) that began in Ohio. We’ve been in Canada now for 11 years (almost 12), and in Ottawa for almost 7 years.

We can install new gutters, or fix the ones you have and make them stop dripping and leaking.

Our biggest seller is our Leaf Filter covers.

We add a totally enclosed cover to your existing (or new) gutters, that only allows water in.

The system has a lifetime totally transferrable warranty (if you sell the house), and a no-clog money-back guarantee. Yes, I said money-back guarantee!

This is the only system I know of that keeps out everything, except for water.

The lids are made of virgin vinyl that won’t discolour or change shape, and medical-grade stainless steel, that won’t rust and doesn’t allow anything organic to grow on it.

This is a set-it and forget-it system. No more cleaning your gutters!!

My office services the greater Ottawa area from Hawkesbury, to Cornwall, to Deep River to Brockville.

If you’re in this area, I would be happy to give you a free quote, and show you what the product looks like. Email me at Sherri.LeafFilter at gmail.com

It will benefit you if all the decision makers can attend the call. We have certain discounts we can offer you while we’re in your home.

If you’re in Ontario, but outside of this area, or you’re somewhere else in Canada or the US, you can still get in touch. I can see if we have a professional to give you a quote in your area.

Who benefits from having Leaf Filter Covers?

If you have a lot of trees on your property, and your gutters fill up once or twice a year, you would benefit from having the covers installed.

If you have a second or third story on your house, and you can’t or choose not to get a ladder up there, you would benefit from having the covers installed.

If you don’t want to fall off of a ladder, no matter how many stories your home has, or you don’t want your parent/sibling/friend falling off a ladder, they would benefit from having the covers installed.

Can we just clean the gutters without adding the covers?

Absolutely, we can. If you have leaking or dripping gutters, which always seem to be over a driveway, porch or doorway, we can do what we call a CSR, Clean, Seal and Realign. We clean your existing gutters, use a 50-year marine grade silicone to seal all the seams on the end caps, corners and downspouts, we add hidden hangers and realign the gutters as needed, so the water flows where it’s supposed to go.

Your house is usually your biggest asset. Let me help you take great care of it.

Half Moon Bay Park

Half Moon Bay Park is a park with a paved walkway around a lake.

The address is 3525 Cambrian Road, Nepean, Ontario. This is a suburb of Ottawa, about 30 minutes to the Southwest.

I have walked this cute park several times as it’s close to where I currently live.

It takes me less than 10 minutes to walk here, and the walk around the park takes about 18 minutes.

If I want more steps, I walk it one or two extra times.

I like the scenery here, even though it’s in the middle of a few giant subdivisions.

They have a big pavilion with picnic tables and a large play area for the kids.

They also have connecting trails into the different neighbourhoods.

I many couples, families and singles in the evenings and weekends here, enjoying the green space.

I’ve even seen people carrying bird seed down to feed the ducks in the pond.

I give this park a 4/5. If you live in this neighbourhood, it’s a wonderful place to walk. It makes you feel like you’re not in the city at all!

Tutti Frutti Breakfast and Lunch

One of the things I wanted to do and never did while I was housesitting was review places to eat, and hiking trails.

Well, it’s a bit too late for that, but I can do the same thing where I live now, in the Ottawa area.

This morning, I felt a bit of a nudge to go check out this breakfast and lunch place called Tutti Frutti. I don’t eat out often, but when I do, I prefer breakfast foods, or Pad Thai.

I had the Western Omelet with red peppers, onions and tomatoes. They didn’t have gluten free bread, so I asked for no bread. It came with thin oval shaped potatoes and two slices of tomato. (Sorry, no picture.)

The meal cost me $22 with taxes and 20% tip. Not a super cheap place, but I left pleasantly satisfied. They do have $10 omelets on Wednesdays, at least at this location in Barrhaven: 4335 Strandherd Dr, Barrhaven, ON K2J 6E5

I used the bathroom here and it was nice and clean. They have several individual bathrooms.

I liked the decor and the wait staff was pleasant.

This location is open from 7 am until 2 pm daily. Find their website here.

I give this restaurant a 4/5 stars.
