Inventor of Gutter Topper and founder and owner, Gutter Covers International
Did you know that just an inch of a summer rainfall pours close to 1500 gallons of water onto your roof? That’s why the performance of your gutters is so important to protecting your home. Waterfalls flowing over your gutters during a summer rainfall are a strong indication that you have clogged gutters – and clogged gutters can lead to some expensive home repairs.
Investing in gutter protection from Gutter Covers International is one of the wisest home improvements you can make, especially when you consider the damage caused by overflowing gutters. Home improvement companies constantly report problems from overflowing gutters that range from smaller problems such as landscaping damage to major foundation problems and flooded basements as the water pressure from storm runoff wreaks havoc on homes.

One of the most common calls our independent home improvement contractors receive from homeowners usually involves water flowing over the front and ends of their gutters and flooding their home. And our contractors usually find gutters clogged solid with leaves or other debris.
When gutter debris gets wet, it absorbs the water from summer rainfalls like a large sponge – and you know how heavy a saturated sponge can get. This extra weight stresses your gutters and hanging brackets, and can result in your gutters pulling off of your house.

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.
