Gutter Protection

There is no bet­ter gut­ter cover sys­tem on the mar­ket. Period. Gut­ter Top­per, with its patented design, is the most effec­tive, effi­cient sys­tem available.

Gut­ter Top­per has been inde­pen­dently tested to: 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.  Exclu­sive Val­ley Diverter Design. So it’s tough and it’s beau­ti­ful. Gut­ter Topper’s patented design gives it a smooth sil­hou­ette that enhances your roofline. And it’s avail­able in a wide range of col­ors to blend with the col­ors of your shin­gles and gut­ters. Only Gut­ter Top­per offers an effec­tive steep roof water val­ley diverter. This unique design han­dles the increased flow of water that trav­els down a roof val­ley, spread­ing that water over a wider area so that it flows into the gut­ter instead of flow­ing over the roof.



Patented Ice Release System

Gut­ter Topper’s patented Ice Release Sys­tem keeps ice from building-up in your gut­ter and pulling the gut­ter away from the house. To learn more watch this short demon­stra­tion video.

When it Pours, Gut­ter Top­per Reigns.

Sure, oth­ers describe them­selves as gut­ter top­pers. But you want the one, the only, the “Orig­i­nal” Gut­ter Top­per. The one gut­ter guard that has been inde­pen­dently tested and cer­ti­fied to keep your gut­ters free flow­ing and free of debris.
Gut­ter Top­per gut­ter guards are uniquely designed with eleven crit­i­cal bends of strength to han­dle any­thing Mother Nature can throw at it. Whether it’s 110 mph winds, enough rain to float Noah‘s Ark or 1,200 pounds of weight per square foot, Gut­ter Top­per will pass the test with fly­ing col­ors!

How it Works

Not Magic, Science.

The key to Gut­ter Topper’s amaz­ing abil­ity to han­dle water and repel leaves and debris is found in the sci­ence of its patented gut­ter cover design.
Water clings to the sur­face on which it trav­els. This ‘sur­face ten­sion’ causes the water to cling to Gut­ter Topper’s rounded ‘nose’. The water lit­er­ally fol­lows the curve of the nose and is deposited in the slots at the bot­tom of the sys­tem. (Your Gut­ter Top­per retailer will be glad to demon­strate this on a sec­tion of Gut­ter Top­per using water from the faucet in your sink. You almost have to see it to believe it. Every drop goes where it belongs. Not one drop goes astray.)
Leaves and debris, on the other hand, won’t fol­low the curve. They’ll remain on Gut­ter Topper’s flat sur­face and blow harm­lessly to the ground once they dry out.

Patented Design

 The U.S. Patent Office grants patents so that designs can’t be copied. That’s surely what would have hap­pened to Gut­ter Top­per if it weren’t for Patent Office pro­tec­tion. You see, Gut­ter Top­per has eleven crit­i­cal bends of strength, form­ing a rounded ‘nose’ that water fol­lows into a series of spe­cially designed slots. This amaz­ing gut­ter cover design makes Gut­ter Top­per both excep­tion­ally strong and excep­tion­ally effective.

Tony Ian­nelli, Gut­ter Topper’s founder, con­tin­ues to inno­vate and patent his designs. In all, Gut­ter Top­per is the owner of 15 Patents/Patents Pend­ing from the U.S. Patent Office.

Gut­ter Top­per FAQs

 What do I do if I need a new roof?

Because of the method of instal­la­tion, your gut­ter pro­tec­tion should be removed before your old roof is taken off and your new roof installed.  Proper instal­la­tion is crit­i­cal to your gut­ter protection’s per­for­mance, so it is impor­tant that the prod­uct be taken off and re-installed by the autho­rized retailer that orig­i­nally installed the prod­uct.  Your autho­rized retailer will also clean the gut­ters of any left­over roof­ing mate­r­ial before your gut­ter pro­tec­tion is re-installed.  Now there may be a ser­vice charge asso­ci­ated with this work, much like there would be if you needed a satel­lite dish removed from your roof before a new roof is installed.

Why do I get ici­cles when I never had them before?
Ici­cles are not caused by your gut­ter pro­tec­tion; in fact, ici­cles are an indi­ca­tion that your gut­ter pro­tec­tion is work­ing.  Here’s what hap­pens: as you know, heat rises.  If you have inad­e­quate insu­la­tion in your attic and/or lit­tle or no ven­ti­la­tion in your roof, the heat from your home rises and heats up the attic area.  That heat then warms the roof and with the help of the sun, starts to melt the snow sit­ting on your roof.  As the water trick­les down, it comes in con­tact with the cold alu­minum of the gut­ter pro­tec­tion and re-freezes.  Even­tu­ally, those small trick­les of water become ici­cles.  But remem­ber, with­out gut­ter pro­tec­tion, where would that water go?  Into your gut­ter where it would re-freeze, buildup and add con­sid­er­able weight to the gut­ter, which could cause the gut­ter to pull away from the fas­cia or gut­ter board.  See next ques­tion.
Is there any­thing I can do to pre­vent ici­cles?
Hap­pily, yes!  Con­tact your autho­rized retailer and ask about Hott Top­per; a prod­uct specif­i­cally designed to elim­i­nate snow and ice from your gut­ter pro­tec­tion.  Hott Top­per is not a thin piece of wire that zigzags across the top of your roof.  It is a self-regulating, fully insu­lated, heavy duty wire, encased between your gut­ter pro­tec­tion and our custom-made “Heat Shield.”
What is ice damming and what causes it?
An ice dam is a ridge of ice that forms at the edge of the roof and pre­vents melt­ing snow  (water) from drain­ing off the roof.  The water that backs up behind the dam can leak into a home and cause dam­age to walls, ceil­ings, insu­la­tion and other areas.  Ice damming is caused by dif­fer­ent tem­per­a­tures on dif­fer­ent areas of your roof.  Remem­ber how we talked about ici­cles above and what causes them?  Well the same the­ory applies with an ice dam.  Heat loss from the home causes the snow on the roof to melt and then re-freeze when it rolls down the roof and hits the cold alu­minum of the gut­ter or gut­ter pro­tec­tion.  So how do you pre­vent ice damming?  Ade­quate insu­la­tion in your home pre­vent­ing the warm, moist air from flow­ing into and heat­ing up the attic.  Also roof ven­ti­la­tion will help in main­tain­ing uni­form roof tem­per­a­tures.  You can find addi­tional infor­ma­tion on the inter­net sim­ply by typ­ing in “ice damming.”
With gut­ter pro­tec­tion, it is installed and for­got­ten, right?
Not quite.  If any­one tells you there is a gut­ter pro­tec­tion prod­uct that is totally main­te­nance free, they are not being truth­ful with you.  Of all the gut­ter pro­tec­tion prod­ucts out there, NOT ONE is main­te­nance free.  Now, there are some that require less main­te­nance that oth­ers.  Gen­er­ally, the least amount of nor­mal main­te­nance is to clean off the prod­uct twice a year, espe­cially if you have a hooded prod­uct.  These prod­ucts work on a prin­ci­ple of physics called sur­face ten­sion.  Keep­ing the front nose clean will help ensure proper per­for­mance.  Per­fo­rated prod­ucts should be checked twice a year as well.  Your Gut­ter Top­per retailer may offer a ser­vice plan, which would then make your gut­ter pro­tec­tion totally main­te­nance free, at least as far as you are con­cerned!
What hap­pens if a big storm causes hail or wind dam­age?
Unless the hail has severely dam­aged your gut­ter pro­tec­tion, the prod­uct should con­tinue to per­form as before.  Your Gut­ter Top­per retailer can inspect the prod­uct and let you know.  It would be rare if your gut­ter pro­tec­tion suf­fered wind dam­age.  The prod­uct was inde­pen­dently tested and cer­ti­fied to with­stand 110 mph winds with no lift or sep­a­ra­tion from the gut­ter.  If your prod­uct needs to be replaced, make sure you use an autho­rized Gut­ter Top­per retailer and beware of storm chasers.
What’s a storm chaser?
A storm chaser is a “fly-by-night” con­trac­tor, who will pre­tend to be an autho­rized retailer of a prod­uct.  After he gives you an esti­mate for repair, and your insur­ance com­pany has approved a set­tle­ment, he will take off your cur­rent prod­uct and replace it with an infe­rior one, that costs him much less.  When you dis­cover the prod­uct is not work­ing prop­erly, that con­trac­tor is no where to be found.  Make sure you use a rep­utable and autho­rized retailer.
You said the prod­uct was tested?  Tested for what?
All of the prod­ucts man­u­fac­tured by Gut­ter Cov­ers Inter­na­tional have been inde­pen­dently tested and cer­ti­fied.  The key words here are “inde­pen­dently tested and cer­ti­fied.”  That means some­one else tested the prod­uct so there was no chance of the results being skewed in our favor.  If the prod­uct failed, the prod­uct failed, and that’s what would be reported.  Of course, the prod­uct didn’t fail.  In fact, it passed with fly­ing col­ors.  We told you about the wind test — 110 mph winds with no lift or move­ment.  It was also tested and cer­ti­fied to han­dle 22 inches of rain per hour.  That’s 44 feet of rain in one day — more than Hur­ri­cane Kat­rina dumped on New Orleans!  It was also tested and cer­ti­fied to with­stand 1200 pounds of weight per square foot.  That’s com­fort­ing to those of us who have to deal with snow and ice. 
I was told that attach­ing the gut­ter guard to my roof will void my shin­gle war­ranty or allow my roof to leak.  Is that true?
The gut­ter pro­tec­tion is attached with deck screws, not nails, and those screws are then cov­ered with a pro­tec­tive sealant.  It will NOT void your shin­gle war­ranty.  But don’t believe us — ask the shin­gle man­u­fac­tur­ers.  Two of the largest shin­gle man­u­fac­tur­ers in the United States answer that ques­tion.
Where is the prod­uct man­u­fac­tured?
We’re proud to say our prod­ucts are man­u­fac­tured right here in the good old U.S.A.  Our 43 thou­sand square foot man­u­fac­tur­ing plant is located just out­side of Cincin­nati, Ohio.  The prod­uct is formed with sophis­ti­cated dig­i­tally con­trolled roll form­ing machines and each piece is per­son­ally inspected and approved by spe­cially trained employ­ees.  In fact, they ini­tial each and every box show­ing that they stand behind the product’s integrity.
How does it work?
It’s a prin­ci­ple of physics.  When it rains the water runs down your roof and over the gut­ter pro­tec­tion.  The water then goes right around the spe­cially designed nose of the prod­uct, right into your gut­ter.  Try this: take a glass of water and hold it over the sink.  Now slowly tilt the glass until the water starts run­ning over the side.  What’s the water do?  It runs down the side of the glass before it drops off in to the sink.  Same thing here.
Do you have col­ors that match my roof or gut­ter?
We have a vari­ety of col­ors that will match almost any roof or gut­ter.  In fact, you can see how the prod­uct will look on your house.  
What does the prod­uct war­ranty cover?
Gut­ter Top­per car­ries a life­time, lim­ited trans­ferrable per­for­mance war­ranty and a 20-year mate­ri­als war­ranty.  There are some terms and con­di­tions, as in any warranty. 

Will this work on any type of roof or gut­ter?
In most cases, Gut­ter Top­per can be installed on any type of roof or gut­ter.  The prod­uct was designed to work with all types of roof designs and gut­ter systems.
