A decent value, pretty easy to install.
I watched the video provided by the manufacturer and it sure looked easy, you can tell it was actors doing the work because the man and woman were not arguing while doing the job. : ) The ease at which the mounting screws went in was a bit of a joke and took a bit more effort than shown. We have a metal roof being on the edge of forest land, and pilot holes for the screws were necessary. The mounting brackets cause a gap between the gutter and facia, so be aware that you will need your roofing to hang over the edge so water will go into the gutter instead of between the facia and gutter. A sealant might do the trick, we installed some flashing where our roofing panels were not quite long enough to overhang. The product was very reasonably priced, we ended up paying about $280 for 90 feet of gutter and 2 downspouts plus all the other bits needed, screws, joints etc. We did one side of the building, a straight 45', and one downspout in about 90 minutes using a snorkelift, rather than ladders. Then another hour installing the flashing. I hope it lasts, I hate doing things twice.

    These gutters are light and easy to work with with regard to cutting to length and installing. But, after getting them home, I discovered that the outer 'lip' on three of eighteen I purchased was not curved enough to hold the hanger; defective manufacturing. So, buyer beware and check this out at the store so you don't have to drive 40 miles one-way to return them. I'm 'picky' about their appearance so handle with care as they scratch and get 'smudged' easily. So again, buyer beware and be careful.

    Beware of several things regarding this gutter and assessories
    While this product is inexpensive, my primary issue is the bracket use to hang the gutter. Epic design failure. To work effectively, the lip of the gutter must be curved in order for them to fit together properly. I found this to be next to impossible to achieve as the gutter lip is often not curved enough. I tried bending it, but they still did not work as needed. I ended up screwing the back of the gutter to the facia. Buy several tubes of silicone as the hangers cause a gap behind the gutter. I loved the downspouts... but I found it better to run the gutter through (not as instructed by manufacturer video...and BTW they make it all look so simple) then I cut a hole in the bottom of the gutter. The downspouts are sturdier than the gutters. Check each gutter carefully before purchasing. If I hadn't reached a point of no return, I would have taken everything back and used aluminum gutters. I live in Florida, I am praying they don't warp in the heat after reading other reviews. Again, biggest downfall is the design of the hanger. I am shocked this is still on the market and that the manufacturer hasn't made a redesign.

      They are not even close to 5" gutter.
      These carry half the volume of a traditional 5" gutter. This company should be sued for false advertisement. They are significantly smaller than there actual 5" aluminum gutters by the same company. They leak, they warp, they don't hold up. They are trash and extremely under sized.

          Difficult if only one person to install
          Installed on a 40' run. Make sure your chalkline has at least 50' string. Mine was 25' so had to buy another. Even then if you snap it if the fascia is bowed a little the chalkline will not show in low spots. Hard for one person to hold up while screwing gutter to fascia. I used one hanger every 18" because of being in snowbelt. Lots of caulk is also a must because in spots the gutter will not be flush with the fascia so a gaps will let water behind the gutter. 2 people with 2 ladders would make the install much easier. I used to replace alum gutters because they were old and unsightly, these are much cheaper. Heres hoping they will hold up with snow and ice. I was able to tie square drop outlet into the oval alum downspouts to save some money. Also the so called "hidden" hangers still show a bit on my one story ranch.

            I needed to replace two sections due to hail damage and I was glad to find the same product available. The joiners and brakcets worked very easily compared to a similar brand that I had used in the past.

            Good for a short run only.
            I had a short (less than 10 feet) stretch over a garage that needed a gutter. This is super light-weight and easy to install, but I probably wouldn't use it for long stretches where joining pieces is necessary due to the warping/expansion/contraction that is inherent in plastic versus aluminum. Like another reviewer said, the matching vinyl hangers and screws do tend to shift when screwing them in by an 1/8" downward, or so, when fully seated. I had to adjust accordingly.

              used as a RV canopy cover
              I bought two of these and a connector and I use it to cover the rolled up awning on our travel trailer. CAUTION I DO NOT TRAVEL WITH THIS ON. It protects the rolled up awningf from weather and sun damage. I installed it so the front edge goes into the RV gutter above the awning

                The system seems pretty well designed though I would like to see slightly heavier gauge vinyl for the gutters themselves. The screws for the brackets go in at a downward angle which is good for strength but hey have a tendency to end up lower than planned. How they hold up through the winter will be the ultimate test.
