Fall Gutter Guard Tips: Stay off the Roof and Keep Your Gutters Free of Clogs

Inventor of Gutter Topper and founder and owner, Gutter Covers International

With fall here, many of us look at our homes to make sure everything is ready for the coming winter. And as the leaves keep falling, it's a great time to take a look at your gutters to make sure they are free flowing.

Eliminating gutter clogs is one of the smartest home improvement investments you can make. Clogged gutters can result in some very expensive home repair bills, such as ruined drywall, flooded basements, rotting fascia board and washed out landscaping. Sure, you can choose to climb a ladder and clean the gutters yourself, but as we all get older, the risk of an injury from a ladder fall keeps increasing. And when you're done cleaning your gutters, you know you're just going to have to clean them again.

But there is a better way. I have been in the gutter business since 1969, and I understand the frustration that clogged gutters can cause -- as well as the dangerous risk involved in cleaning them. That's why I originally designed Gutter Topper to help keep gutters free of clogs and keep homeowners off their roofs.

The statistics on ladder falls are really grim. Every year in the USA, there are close to 200,000 injuries from ladder falls. Cleaning gutters is such a dangerous and disgusting job that many homeowners put it off. But that just leads to many bigger problems and expensive home repairs.

When you consider all the potential problems caused by clogged gutters, choosing a permanent solution is one of the smartest home improvement investments you can make. But that's often when the confusion starts. How do you know what the best purchase is for your specific home problems.

I've seen one company after another present the latest "one size fits all solution" for gutter clogs. But when you dig into the facts, you learn many of these products haven't been tested to last or stand up to extreme weather conditions. Or you learn they won't help with pine needles or snow that can back up on your roof.

That's why I have dedicated myself to inventing a variety of solutions to gutter clogs, depending on your specific problems. You can learn more about our family of gutter protection products and find the answer to your specific gutter clog problems at the Gutter Covers International website. I am confident you will find a gutter clog solution that fits your needs and budget.

So stop wondering whether you have some problems with gutter clogs that can result in some big home improvement repairs. You can visit the Gutter Covers International website to get the advice you need.

As a general contractor and craftsman, Tony Iannelli saw the damage caused by clogged gutters, and he knew he could invent a solution in his workshop. That invention was Gutter Topper, which then led to his company, Gutter Covers International, developing a series of gutter protection products.Since then, millions of feet of Tony's gutter protection products have been installed in over 200 markets across the USA, Canada and Europe.
