Inventor of Gutter Topper and founder and owner, Gutter Covers International
When you sneeze, do you reach for a Kleenex? And when you need to make a copy, do you Xerox it? Companies often hate it when their trademarks are used to describe other products, but at Gutter Covers International, we’re flattered when customers say they need “gutter toppers” to prevent gutter clogs – because we manufacturer and sell the one, the only, the original Gutter Topper.
It’s the ultimate compliment when the general public begins to use our trademarked Gutter Topper brand name to define the entire gutter guard category. But when it comes to gutter protection, there is a huge difference between Gutter Topper and the pretenders in the marketplace.
- Resist winds of up to 110 mph.
- Handle downpours of up to 22 inches per hour or 528 inches per day—that’s enough water to float Noah’s Ark!
- Withstand weights of up to 1,200 lbs. per sq. ft.
As a general contractor, I saw the serious damage to homes caused by clogged gutters, including flooded basements and foundation damage. I knew these problems could be prevented if I could create a “topper” for gutters that would prevent leaves and debris from collecting. The result was the introduction of Gutter Topper – and now millions of feet of our product have been installed on homes in the USA, Canada and Europe.
Unlike our imitators, Gutter Topper also is proudly made in the USA at our manufacturing facility just outside of Cincinnati, Ohio. On our plant floor, you’ll find sophisticated digitally controlled manufacturing equipment others don’t have. Each machine was uniquely built to flawlessly produce Gutter Topper’s patented design. At a time when manufacturing jobs are leaving the USA, we’re proud to buck the trend.
So when you want a gutter protection product you can depend on, a gutter guard that will work as advertised, and a gutter cover system that protects your home and keeps your gutters debris free, you want "the original" Gutter Topper. That’s why we proudly tell our customers: “Accept no substitute!”

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.
