Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ThunderJ Be prepared to install flashing to get the run-off in the gutter!
The back edge of this gutter does not slip behind the drip edge like aluminum gutters do. This means that if you don't have 1 to1-1/2 inches of shingle overhang the water running off the roof probably won't go in the gutter, it will run down your drip edge behind the gutter. To solve this problem, you'll need to install flashing under your shingles, extending an inch or two out over the gutter.
Galvanized flashing is cheap but, just know you'll have to pry up your shingles, nail the flashing in, caulk your nail heads then caulk the shingles back down!

I installed two continuous runs, one 58lf, and one 20lf. The second summer is now gone, and for
the most part, so are the gutters. I am going to replace them this winter with steel. Summer sun in NorthEast Colorado is intense and has cooked them. Any point not supported by a hanger, has started sagging and warping. Hangers are spaced 16" apart, and even a 9" I suspect that the unsupported sections would still sag and warp. If installed in an area that NEVER is exposed to direct sunlight, there is a good chance that plastic gutters will survive. Otherwise, think long and hard before using plastic gutter systems. If you enjoy changing gutters every couple of years.......ignore all of this.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by fjs440 Gutter Sags And Does Not Look Good
Very easy installation, but after one year, it developed dips where the gutters are joined. The brackets are about one foot from the ends of each of the gutters. The gutters look bad and water stands in the low spots where the gutters are joined. I should have stayed with the aluminum gutters.

Warp and leak over long runs or if there are corners.
Gutters expand and contract a lot, so on a 40' run end up buckling even when properly gaped at the seams, may be ok for short runs but tore them off after a year once the fascia was getting water damaged. The old plastic "U" gutters lasted over years and never warped the joints just leaked, think this may have been because the seams slipped easier and perhaps a different material.
Aluminum one piece extruded are worth the money, roof water damage is expensive.
One way to save money is to use the PVC down spouts and have a gutter installer extrude the gutters for you, or use the 10 foot metal gutters. PVC just changes size too much with the heat.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dave So easy to install, hope it lasts
I needed a 30-foot section of gutters and it was $200 for a professional to do it so I decided to do it myself and these seemed way easier to install then metal gutters. It also saved me $100. I was surprised how easy they were to install. I actually thought I missed something because before I knew it I was done. The hardest part had nothing to do with the gutters, but setting the level line.
I've read that sometimes vinyl gutters can leak over time, but honestly if I have to fix a leak here and there over the years, these things are so easy to update a modify it's worth it. To install the 30-foot run all by myself and never doing it before it only took a couple hours.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Hugo Lke Vinyl gutter bad bracket design...
Bought the product on Friday, by Saturday I return it. The problem is a bad bracket design, it does not allow the gutter to go behind the drip guard and a 1/2" vertical space between them, allowing water to go behind the gutter, the good thing easy to install, just change the bracket design to avoid this isue. I only installed a 10" section and shoot water with a hose to the roof to test it and notice the issue.

Put these up about 3 years ago, they went in fairly easy with no leaks. We get past 100 in the summer and these warped all over, every joint leaked the very next winter and even after I tried to reseal the joints. Don't waste your money.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Chief Rain Master 10 ft white traditional vinyl gutter
Flimsy and,has a tendency to bow, even with the recommended 2 foot spacing between mounting brackets, which causes dripping behind the gutter. Otherwise I like the gutter; easy to clean, no rust.
