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!
Cons: you'll probably need flashing

Review 2 for 10 ft. White Traditional Vinyl Gutter
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.
Cons: Maintenance, warps in use

Review 3 for 10 ft. White Traditional Vinyl Gutter
Warp and leak over long runs or if there are corners.
PostedOctober 12, 2014
No, I do not recommend this product.
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.
Cons: Leaks, expand and contract

Review 4 for 10 ft. White Traditional Vinyl Gutter
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.

Review 5 for 10 ft. White Traditional Vinyl Gutter
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.
Spend the money for the better stuff, go all metal

No, I do not recommend this product.
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.

Review 7 for 10 ft. White Traditional Vinyl Gutter
I used these gutters and leaf guards on my entire home. Total cost was about $5.25 a foot. I have two complete weekends into this job (although I did it by myself, you may want to ask a friend to give you a hand to save time).
After the first weekend I thought I was finished and was very happy with how these gutters went together. I put a hanger about every 18 inches. The "calk free" joint system works very well and I am confident that they will not leak at the seams. The down spouts are OK, the clips that attach the pipe to the home are not the greatest. I had to run a down spout over a window sill and the clips are not designed for that. The leaf guards were not easy to attach because the rear drip edge was getting in the way. Also, I had a hard time with the guards in the corners - I couldn't get them to lay down. TIP: I used my miter saw to cut the gutters, guards and down spouts. If you do this, turn the blade around and the vinyl will not chip.
It was about 2 weeks before the first rain and I was very disappointed with the results. They leaked horribly between the fascia and the gutters! After much trial and error to try to figure out how the water was getting behind the gutter here is what I found. One, the leaf guard rear drip edge was actually catching water and releasing it up against the fascia. That rear drip edge would be great if the guards were seemless. They are 6 feet long, so every 6 feet water was dripping directly down the fascia. Also, I found that the gutters themselves had curled in between the hangers. At some points there was a quarter inch gap. That gap, coupled with the rear dip edge was pushing water directly down the fascia and not into the gutters.
So here is what I did the 2nd weekend and I am confident I am done dealing with these gutters. I put 1 or 2 screws (depending on the gap) through the gutters themselves to pull the gutters tight to the fascia. I then used roofing elastomeric sealant (roofing calk) to seal any possible areas that water could leak through. I basically ran a bead around my entire gutter system. I then used a razor to cut the rear drip edge off the leaf guard (it was only getting in the way and I calked everything back there so they were not needed). Also, I mitered the corners of the leaf guards and that made them look much better from the ground. Lastly, I used stainless steel zip ties to fasten all the guards together end-to-end.
Overall, I think this gutter system is pretty good. If I were to do it over again I would do everything I discussed on the first weekend. They say this is a "calk free" system - I disagree. But, they do look great once installed so I'd say I'm happy.

Review 10 for 10 ft. White Traditional Vinyl Gutter
My vinyl gutters are leaking at the joints. Have to put buckets underneath several joints to catch the water. It's been a rainy year in Colorado. Big mess. Now what? The associate at Home Depot recommended Leak Seal flexible rubber coating. Bought some. Haven't tried it yet.
Pros: Easy to Install, Good Size & Weight, Great Value, Economical, Light Weight
Cons: Leaks, Difficult to Use, Inconsistent, No Instructions, Maintenance, a dissapointment, have been leaking profusely

Review 11 for 10 ft. White Traditional Vinyl Gutter
Item went together easy. Installed as per instruction. Product does not fit tight to the house due to the bracket design and corners do not fit flush. Thus leaking everywhere I didnt want water. So you get what you pay for. Went cheap got cheap results.

Review 12 for 10 ft. White Traditional Vinyl Gutter
This product feels almost too durable. A good wind storm could blow it off if not anchored correctly. I bought it for a different type of drainage non-home gutter related but it wasn't sturdy enough just sitting so I returned it. I found the Lowes cheap vinyl gutter brand sturdier and a better value. The shape was more of a 5-sided where is this is specifically a particular shape so it may fit your needs better.
Pros: Easy to Install, Easy to Clean, Light Weight
Cons: bends too much not strong.

Review 15 for 10 ft. White Traditional Vinyl Gutter
I agree with the other reviews that say these gutters warp. Leads to dips with standing water where debris collects, and leaks at the joints, especially at straight-run coupled joints. Look for something else, I would say.

Review 16 for 10 ft. White Traditional Vinyl Gutter
I'm using this under my deck to help water run off from a PVC ceiling. It was easy to install and cut to the right length. SInce it won't really be in the weather I'm not concerned about bowing or cracking from sun exposure. For my purpose it was a great easy to use product.
Pros: Easy to Use, Easy to Install, Easy to Work With, Easy to Clean

Review 18 for 10 ft. White Traditional Vinyl Gutter
I have had the same issues as many others. Gutters warp and dip at the end of a section causing pooling water and leaks at the joints. Like all of the components of this system, it is expensive and faulty. Horrible Experience.
Cons: Leaks, Inconsistent, Maintenance

Review 19 for 10 ft. White Traditional Vinyl Gutter
I definitely agree with the other reviews that RECOMMEND AGAINST this gutter system. Even with 16" spacing on the brackets, the gutters sag and leak. Do yourself a favor and pay the extra money for aluminum.
