Avoiding the storm chasers

You have probably heard the term “storm chasers” from the Weather Channel—men and women who fling themselves headlong into severe weather events for the sake of good TV. But there is another storm chaser far more common. These are unscrupulous, out-of-state “contractors” who knock on doors in the wake of storms and sell low-quality roofing, siding and gutters without a proper warranty.

“These are sales and marketing companies, not home service companies,” explains The Gutter Boys founder Anthony Alberino. “We see it all the time. And, unfortunately, we’re often called on to clean up the mess they make, It’s far better to deal with a reputable, local company in the first place.”

The Gutter Boys specializes in complete gutter systems, including gutter installation and repair, and the nation’s top-quality gutter covers. In fact, they are the number one vendor for Valor Gutter Guards, which the independent, third-party testing organization NCR Consumer Advocacy Group has ranked number one in all categories it measured.

The Gutter Boys’ exclusive Valor Gutter Guard System features a stainless steel mesh with a raised S-curve which encourages the self-shedding of debris. It’s been named America’s highest quality gutter guard.

“Last year we installed over 100 miles of gutter guards,” Anthony says. “Given our growth, we preordered 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.”

In addition to plenty of inventory, The Gutter Boys is fully staffed with a team of highly trained gutter experts. That means no waiting. “We can complete your job in two weeks, not two months,” Anthony says. “We are prepped and ready for another busy season.”

Get Ready for Summer Storms
A proper gutter system does much more than keep your head dry and protect your flowerbeds. It sends thousands of gallons of roof runoff safely away from your home. Because when clogged gutters overflow, that water pools at the foundation of your home, which can result in a wet basement and a damaged foundation. Standing water in your gutters is also a breeding ground for mosquitos.

The Gutter Boys founder Anthony Alberino stands in his company’s warehouse with over 100 miles of Valor’s micro-mesh gutter guards—preordered to ensure 2021 pricing with plenty of inventory for customers in 2022.

The Gutter Boys team is made up of gutter specialists—trained by Valor—who all have diverse backgrounds. No one is a professional salesperson. “We won’t hold you hostage in your kitchen,” Anthony promises. “It takes only about 15 minutes to give you an estimate.”

In addition to installing the nation’s top-rated micro-mesh gutter cover, the company cleans and repairs gutters and downspouts that are broken, dented, loose, or leaking, and does new installations—and they can do it with no waiting.
