Are You Protected?

Our gutter protection guide also offers a list of questions you should ask your gutter protection contractor before agreeing to move forward on your project.  Why? The quality of the workmanship is obviously a very important factor in determining what product you purchase. For example, if the contractor uses sub-contractors, you need to make sure the sub-contractors have been properly trained on installation by the manufacturer.

It’s also important to ask your contractor to produce a valid certificate of liability insurance and workers’ comp coverage. Without this protection, you and/or your homeowner’s policy may be at risk.

When making your decision on gutter protection, you should always consider the reputation of the manufacturer, the quality and reliability of the product’s performance and whether the product has been independently tested to perform as promised. Our objective for the Complete Guide to Gutter Protection is helping you make an informed decision.

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.
