When considering any big-ticket item as a consumer, it’s important to always do your due diligence, research, and make sure you’re getting the best deal.
On top of getting the best deal, it’s especially important to ask the foundational questions such as, “What type of warranty does this come with?” This doesn’t just apply to buy a new TV, iPhone, or kitchen table – it applies to your home as well.
In other words, when you are considering an exterior contractor to replace your roof, or in this case, add new gutters to your home – it is vital to ask about the warranty they offer.
Today the team at Top Dog Home Pro will explain our exact process for new gutter warranties including what they gutter warranty consists of and how it all works!
What to Know About Gutter Warranties:
So you want to learn about gutter warranties and don’t know where to start? Don’t worry, we got you covered.
Gutter warranties can differ depending on the company, the product, and the type of work you are getting done. For example, we don’t always guarantee gutter repairs for life because a repair typically indicates that the gutter life is quickly fading.
That being said, typically, new rain gutters come with a warranty. Here at Top Dog Home Pros, our gutter warranty is very straight forward and hassle-free:
We offer a lifetime material warranty with a lifetime labor warranty. As a bonus, homeowners can also take advantage of our lifetime no-clog warranty when they elect to install new gutter guards on their home.
Let us take a look at what each entails:
Our Aluminum Gutter Warranty:
New aluminum gutters reign supreme compared to any other gutter.
- Vinyl gutters are a little bit cheaper, but they’re awful quality and sectional, thus they leak (not good).
- Copper and steel gutters look amazing and perform well, but are easily 4-10x more than aluminum rain gutters! (not kidding)
However, aluminum gutters hit the nail on the head so to speak (even though we don’t use gutter spikes, we use screws), in that they offer:
- Great performance
- Price point
- 16 colors +
- 5 in & 6 in
- Customized on-site
Top Dog Home Pro of Woodbridge, VA offers a lifetime material warranty for any new aluminum gutters we install. This means that if a section of gutters breaks, falls off your house (aside from weather impact), is not draining properly, or isn’t performing – we will come to fix it or replace it per the warranty.
All new gutters don’t just come with a material warranty, perhaps most importantly, we also guarantee our workmanship (gutter labor warranty).
New gutter labor warranty information:
A labor warranty of any kind is simply a warranty that guarantees that quality workmanship will be performed, back by the terms upholding that workmanship.
Here are Top Dog Home Pros, we back out new gutter labor with a lifetime guarantee. Any aluminum gutters we install are guaranteed to be installed correctly, drain correctly, and perform the right way – or we will come to fix them!
Since all of our new gutters are customized to fit accordingly (they are made on site, you can see a video here), they are installed and backed by our lifetime labor warranty.
Now if you read that and you’re a little worried about cleaning your gutters each November, don’t worry. We offer the ultimate gutter warranty below in our gutter guard package:
No-clog Warranty with Gutter Guards:
So if we install brand new gutters and you maintain them you’re all set for life, right?
That is correct. However, what if you’re someone who doesn’t want to pay to have them cleaned or you don’t think you can clean them, then what?
The simple answer to that question is to install gutter guards, but not just any gutter guards. Raindrop gutter guards to be specific, and here is why:
- Raindrop Gutter guards are SELF-CLEANING (meaning you don’t have to clean them they wash themselves out)
- They are a surface tension guard made from highly durable polypropylene
- Great for helping melt snow and ice in winter (eases weight on gutters)
- Can easily be added to new gutters for just around $10 per foot
- Lifetime NO CLOG warranty with all Raindrop products we install
Here at Top Dog Home Pro, we work exclusively with Raindrop as our sole provider of Raindrop products.
Not to mention, new gutter guards cost less than a 3-4 year gutter cleaning average. This means in what you would pay to have your gutters cleaned over the next three or four years, you would have new guards that last a lifetime, literally – we guarantee it!
Note: We do not typically install gutter guards on old/existing gutters without thoroughly inspecting the condition of the gutters. Our policy of being transparent and honest is huge, and while some companies might slap on gutter guards on old gutters – we usually don’t. The last thing we want is for a customer to have to buy new gutters and new guards again in a few years!
Final Word on Gutter Warranties:
To recap, here are the Top Dog Home Pro gutter warranties again:
- Lifetime labor and material warranty on new seamless gutters
- Lifetime no-clog warranty on new Raindrop gutter guards
We assure all new rain gutter customers that their home will be outfitted with 5-inch or 6-inch gutters that will leave them happy, impressed, and most importantly carefree (so long as you get the guards).
Maintaining your gutters is still vital to keeping your gutters healthy and properly working, however, if for some reason our install or the gutters we provided don’t work like they should – we got you covered!

Frequently Asked Gutter Warranty Questions:
What exclusions apply to my gutter warranty?
Mother nature is not covered in our labor or material warranties. In other words, if a tree falls on your gutters (or branch), or a wind storm knocks your gutters off, these type of circumstances are not guaranteed in the material or labor warranty. Specific limitations to warranties are included in contracts with each homeowner
Are gutter guards worth the price?
While we can’t speak for every company, we can candidly say that YES, gutter guards are worth the extra cost, but keep in mind they’re not all made equal. We only recommend the Raindrop gutter guard because we can offer a no-clog warranty for life. We can’t say that for the others.
