As you drive down State Road 15 in Goshen, you will come across a business named Rain Drain. Nestled on six acres of beautiful land, you will find the building where a team of highly skilled individuals has been providing quality home services since 1996.
Rain Drain is truly a one-stop shop for all your commercial and residential needs. It all began with a vision from Owner and Founder Randy Kwilinski. He saw a need for quality home services in the northern Indiana area and decided to open the original business under Rain Drain Seamless Guttering. He started out as the only employee working out of his parents’ pole barn, but the business has grown into one of the most successful home-service companies in the area.
As Kwilinski continued taking on more and more projects, his reputation grew, and soon he knew he needed to expand his building and grow his team. That is what led him to purchase the land off of State Road 15 and build a beautiful warehouse, surrounded by mature trees and a large pond. The location of the new building was an ideal choice, as the team can service areas such as Middlebury, Goshen, Elkhart, Bristol, Nappanee and beyond. In fact, since their business has continued to expand, Rain Drain has built two more locations in Fort Wayne and Valparaiso.
When it comes to the services that Rain Drain offers, there is little they can’t do. Some of their most popular services include gutters, insulation, windows and roofing. This sets their company apart from the competition because they are able to offer all of these services as a whole, instead of having the customer bring in multiple companies for a project.
The original idea behind Kwilinski’s vision for Rain Drain was to offer a seamless, free-flowing gutter with a unique, hood-covered trough. Being an innovator and entrepreneur, Kwilinski came up with the LeafGuard design. It is an ideal design for customers who enjoy their tree-filled yards and want to enjoy the beautiful fall foliage, but do not want the hassle of constantly cleaning out their gutters. Living in northern Indiana, we all know how the changing of the seasons can take a toll on traditional gutters, which tend to be full of leaves, debris, branches, saplings and even the occasional squirrel.
LeafGuard instantly became a hit for both commercial and residential properties. In fact, according to their website, “LeafGuard is the only one-piece debris-shedding gutter system on the market today.” There are other gutter guards that you can find at your local home improvement store, but those typically tend to be add-ons that you simply bolt to the top of the gutter.
What sets LeafGuard apart is the curved hood actually being part of the design. This allows for debris to be deflected and rain water to flow free, keeping your gutters clean and clear. The team at Rain Drain is happy to explain how the revolutionary gutter system works. For example, the LeafGuard system is roll-formed to custom lengths right on site. This allows the customer to have their gutters fit precisely to their roof.
Aside from gutters, Kwilinski saw a need for quality roofing options for homes and buildings, as they often get damaged from the changing seasons over the years. Rain Drain is able to assist customers with solutions to this as well.
Some of the roofing styles customers can choose from include lifetime asphalt shingles with options from Timberline, the number-one selling shingle in North America. Roof deck protection allows moisture to escape from your attic, while also being aesthetically pleasing with a flat design. Additionally, Rain Drain offers ridge cap shingles, Cobra attic ventilation, starter strip shingles, and leak barriers.
Looking for a higher-quality shingle style? Rain Drain also offers designer shingles to help you create your unique look. Simply stop by their building and view the samples and styles of roofing options to best fit your needs. No matter what you choose, you will be happy knowing you are getting a quality product that is economical but far from boring.
Rain Drain is committed to helping their customers bring their vision to life, whether it is a new build or a remodel. This is where their window installation service comes into play. They offer the highest-grade products from Pella Windows & Doors that will complement your home or business. Rain Drain chooses to offer Pella over other windows because of their manufacturing principles that add up to innovative, high-quality windows and doors. Some of the benefits of Pella windows include retractable insect screens, blinds that are between the glass, shades, and pivoting window sashes that make them easier to clean. Not sure what to choose? The family-owned business at Rain Drain is more than happy to help you make the right decision, whether in person or over the phone.
As the winter season approaches, many people will notice their homes getting colder. Rather than wasting money on cranking up the thermostat, Rain Drain offers insulation services to help you stay comfortable even on the coldest nights.
The home insulation technicians at Rain Drain will utilize their diagnostic tools to find any hidden air leaks in your home or business. From there, they can properly seal them for maximum savings. In fact, they estimate that you can save up to 20% off your heating and cooling costs just by properly insulating your home. Once summer comes around, this can also help you stay cool and reduce the cost of running the air conditioner constantly.
