Gutter Guard Choices, No One Size Fits All Solutions

By Tony Iannelli
Inventor of Gutter Topper and founder and owner, Gutter Covers International

Imagine shopping for a car and finding out there is only one choice – take it or leave it. Or shopping for a shirt and finding out there is only one style, one color and one size. Unfortunately, when it comes to gutter protection, many companies follow the same strategy – they have a single “one-size-fits-all solution” for you regardless of what your specific gutter clog problem is.

Of course, you already know that clogged gutters can cause serious damage to your home. Gutter guards are supposed to keep gutters clear, unclogged and free flowing – but not all gutter guards work as promised. Clogged gutters can cause thousands of dollars in damage to your home from rotting fascia boards, landscape erosion, basement flooding, and foundation repairs. A quality gutter protection system from Gutter Covers International can end these costly problems and add value to your home, making your home more desirable when it comes time to sell.
Cleaning your gutters can be a messy -- and dangerous -- job. Gutter guards keep you safe and off the ladder.
But shopping for gutter protection is not something you do every day. I understand that making the right choice can be confusing. The one thing you need to know is that there is no one product that works in every situation, regardless of what you may hear from companies trying to sell you their one-size-fits-all solution. The truth is that there are no magic bullets or miracle cures that work best in every case.

Different gutter clog problems require different solutions. That’s why Gutter Covers International made the decision to manufacture a variety of products for a variety of needs and budgets. And weʼre continually developing additional products to protect your home, so that the independent companies that represent our products can recommend the very best product designed specifically to address the main cause of your clogged gutters.

When you contact in independent home improvement company that sells products from Gutter Covers International, you can be sure you will receive the right solution from our line of products designed to address different needs:

  • Everything started with the one, the only, the “Original” Gutter Topper; independently tested and certified to withstand anything Mother Nature can throw at it. 
  • The Leaf Terminator – a heavy duty gutter guard that allows water to flow through the patented perforation design, while at the same time, strengthens your gutter system. Itʼs also perfect for commercial buildings.
  • The Solution – our budget priced gutter guard that has been independently certified to outperform the competition.
  • Needle Beetle – specifically designed for areas where pine needles present unique gutter clog challenges.
  • Hott Topper -- helps to eliminate the problems caused by icicles and heavy snow.

Every product we design is independently tested to perform as promised. Why is that important? The term “Independently” tested means the company that was hired to test the product is independent from the manufacturer and will not be swayed to skew the results in any way. The product “is what it is” and the testing facility is completely unbiased and simply reports the results of the testing.

Our products are independently tested to determine how much rain each one can handle, how much debris each product allows to enter the gutter, how much weight the product will withstand and recover from, and most importantly, to determine if strong winds cause the product to separate from the gutter or worse yet, blow completely off.

Choosing a gutter guard system for your home can be one of the smartest investments you make, and your independent home improvement specialist is ready to offer you the right solution for your specific clogged gutters – no one size fits all solutions.

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.

  2. I rate this product 5 stars. Very easy to install, everything you need comes in the package. We had some very heavy rains lately and i just watch the water come off the roof thru the guard and out the downspout. "
