Gutter overflows can quickly cause damage to landscaping, ruin basements and destroy the foundation of a home or structure. Improperly cared for gutters can also lead to other serious and possibly more unnoticeable problems, including, but not limited to, mold, mildew and rot. Gutter Topper® has eleven critical bends forming a rounded ‘nose’ that allows water to cling to the curve, depositing it in slots at the bottom of the system. Leaves and debris remain on Gutter Topper’s flat surface and blow harmlessly to the ground once they dry. It can handle tremendous amounts of water, ice and wind while repelling leaves. Gutter Topper has passed rigorous independent testing and is certified to endure 110 mph winds (category 2 hurricane) with no lift or movement and can withstand 22 inches of rainfall per hour. It will perform as promised even in the harshest weather conditions, keeping you safely off your roof!
