Cover your gutters before fall

Gutter With Playset
The Gutter Boys’ exclusive micro-mesh gutter system prevents clogging with a high-tech raised S-curve which allows for the self-shedding of debris.

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I sure have. The leaves are beginning to show slight color and many are already turning brown and falling. Last weekend I raked a half a Hefty bag of leaves from my fire pit area.

And it’s only August.

“Fall is definitely on its way and so are clogged gutters,” says Anthony Alberino, founder of Northeast Ohio’s The Gutter Boys. “Although we clean gutters for a living—thousands of them every season—we prefer to cover them so no one has to do the dirty and dangerous work of gutter cleaning. Keeping your gutters free-flowing is essential in preventing basement flooding and damage to your foundation.”

And Anthony’s teams cover a lot of gutters, too.

“Before the season is over, we will have installed over 100 miles of Valor micro-mesh gutter guards. They are by far the best in the industry.”

Valor Advantages
Unlike lower-quality guards so many gutter cover companies install, The Gutter Boys’ Valor Gutter Guard system includes many advantages:

  • A high-flow, stainless-steel micro-mesh that lets water in but keeps debris out. This effect is enhanced because the mesh features a raised S-curve that allows for the self-shedding of debris.
  • A vertical louvered frame improves drainage so—unlike horizontal frames—it cannot clog with moss or algae.
  • The light-weight, aluminum frame won’t warp and doesn’t add extra weight.
  • The cover is attached to the fascia, not the shingles, so it can’t void your roof warranty. This also adds structural integrity when covered in heavy ice.
  • A fully transferrable, lifetime warranty.

No Need to Wait
Anticipating another record year in the face of possible supply chain interruptions, Anthony looked ahead and pre-ordered extra inventory of Valor gutter guards.

“Last year we were Valor’s number one vendor,” he reveals. “Given our growth, we pre-ordered even more this year. And we did that for two reasons: 1) We wanted to lock in last year’s price so we can continue to offer the best value to our clients, and 2) We didn’t want to run out of inventory and ask our customers to wait.”
