Imagine this scene: You’re sitting at your kitchen table looking out at the dark clouds of a gathering storm. You see a bright flash of lightning. A second later, a loud crash of thunder. More lightning. More thunder.

Then the downpour begins.

Suddenly you see the real danger—a deluge of water cascading out of your clogged gutters, and you know right where that water is headed: into your basement.

Quick as a flash you run to the garage, take down your extension ladder from its lofty hooks, and head out into the raging storm. There you are—20 feet high on an aluminum ladder in a lightning storm cleaning your gutters. Your neighbor behind you watches from his large bay window, sipping his tea, shaking his head, ready to call 9-1-1.

Fantasy, you say? Fiction? Nope. I’ve been there. I’ve done that. More than once.

“Don’t feel bad,” says Anthony Alberino, founder of The Gutter Boys. “We’ve heard stories like that many times. You’re not alone. It just means that you’re a responsible homeowner who understands the danger of overflowing gutters. Good for you. Now we just need to work on your understanding of the dangers of lightning.”

These days, worrying over the possibility of clogged gutters is wasted anxiety. It doesn’t need to happen. Every home should have its gutters covered, but not every gutter system is the same. This is why Anthony and his team offer the top-rated gutter cover system in the country.

The Top-Rated Gutter Cover
“When The Gutter Boys began, we only cleaned gutters; we didn’t cover them,” Anthony says.

“But while cleaning the gutters on thousands of homes, we saw first-hand that most gutter covers aren’t effective. Either they can’t handle the volume of water coming off the roof or they become clogged—or both. Then a few years ago we finally discovered a system that worked. Since then we’ve been telling everyone we can—from here in the pages of Mimi to our social media feeds. Every home needs this gutter system.”

Clogged gutters are especially common in the spring.

“When trees start dropping their seed castings and whirly birds, it creates a huge opportunity for clogging.” Anthony says. “Unlike fall leaves—which are bad enough—these particles are small and clingy and bind together to form stubborn clogs. Our gutter covers stop that from happening.”

The system Anthony offers is an exclusive micro-mesh gutter guard rated #1 in the industry by NCR Consumer Advocacy Group—the nation’s largest publisher of independent third-party testing, ratings and reviews for the gutter cover and home improvement industry. In 2019, The Gutter Boys’ system ranked number one in all categories: value, effectiveness, industry reputation, strength, water throughput, durability and “overall.”

It works because it features 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 increases the surface area, allowing for the self-shedding of debris. Plus, its vertical louvered frame improves drainage so it cannot become clogged with moss or algae like flat, horizontal frames can.

Best of all, it features a fully-transferrable, lifetime warranty.

No Lengthy Sales Pitch
Doing business during the Covid-19 pandemic has been particularly easy for The Gutter Boys. That’s because social distancing fits naturally with their culture.

“We don’t have a two-hour arm wrestling match in your kitchen trying to close you,” Anthony says. “That’s not us. We give you the information you need to make an informed decision then we leave. For two months now we’ve been meeting with homeowners from a safe distance through their patio doors. It hasn’t been an issue. In fact, our business is up so much we’re adding and training new gutter specialists right now.”

In addition—whether cleaning gutters or installing gutter guards—Anthony’s gutter specialists take photos of your clean gutters and text or email them to you, so you don’t have to climb a ladder to inspect their work.

Especially not in a thunderstorm.
