It all started in 1996, when Randy Kwilinski started RainDrain Seamless Guttering in his parents’ pole barn just outside of Middlebury, Indiana. With just a single machine, a dedication to quality service, and insight enough to see that a need was not being met, Randy’s business quickly gained a solid reputation.
It didn’t take long for word to get around that Randy offered reliable, on-time service, the best quality available, and affordable prices. The business quickly grew, and in 2000, he added the Englert LeafGuard franchise. Randy had always had a keen eye for quality and innovation, and he knew LeafGuard would deliver on both fronts. LeafGuard, one of the best known names in gutters, has been in business since 1966, providing its revolutionary brand of seamless, free-flowing gutters with a unique, hood-covered trough.
Here in Northern Indiana, the fall foliage is especially beautiful—but there’s a downside to all that natural beauty. Traditional gutters tend to get filled with leaves, saplings, and even the occasional squirrel. The LeafGuard design was a perfect addition to Randy’s growing business, and the new product line was a perfect fit for customers that enjoyed their colorful, tree-filled yards.
With the addition of the LeafGuard franchise, growth came quickly, and Randy installed a new facility on his newly-purchased six acres of land on State Road 15 in Goshen. Today, LeafGuard serves all of Michigan and Northern Indiana with 18 employees, 11 trucks and six machines and Randy and his team are able to handle the growing volume while still delivering personal service to each of his customers.
Soon, Randy saw another need that had to be filled. Most providers were very limited in scope, but guttering is often done in conjunction with roofing, siding, and window projects. Customers often needed to bring in two or three different companies to service the entire project. The need to add roofing, siding, and windows quickly became apparent, and today, RainDrain has a certified roofing crew that can handle every need.
In addition, RainDrain’s vendor relationships has delivered more choices to Randy’s customers, who can choose between traditional asphalt roofing, the durable standing seam steel, and stone coated steel options. A full complement of vinyl siding, soffit and fascia options make it complete, and LeafGuard became a one-stop shop for all exterior needs.
Since 1996, Rain Drain has grown from that one-man operation in Randy’s parents’ pole barn, to an 18-person family operation (20, if you count Randy’s two friendly Weimaraners, Rigley and Riley). We have a great crew dedicated to serving you!
We display two types of written homeowner feedback on GuildQuality member profile pages: Comments and Reviews.
In response to our customer satisfaction surveys, homeowners share lots of comments about construction quality, communication, or any other question asked in the survey. Guildmembers can selectively publish these comments here on their profile page.
Reviews are different than comments.
