If your roof is old and leaking or maybe has incurred wind or hail damage then give us a call at Rain-Go Exteriors. We offer shingle roof replacement and roof repair services. All of our high quality roofing installations come with a 10-year Workmanship Warranty. Our Atlas Pinnacle Pristine Shingle Series has a Lifetime Manufacturer Warranty with a Lifetime Warranty against Algae which in our ever-increasing warm/ moist North Carolina climate is now a necessity. We offer Cool Roofing shingles such as the Atlas Pearl which qualifies for government rebates and energy savings. Cool roofing shingles reflect more sunlight and absorb less heat than darker roofing shingles. Dark roof shingles can reach 150 degrees or more in the summer sun versus a cool roof under the same conditions could stay more than 50 degrees cooler. Cool roofing not only decreases your energy bill by decreasing your air conditioning needs but lowers peak electricity demand, therefore, reducing power plant omissions which helps us and the environment.
No Matter What Types of Gutters You Have — We Can Take Care Of You
A home’s gutter system has the job of guiding rain and stormwater off the roof and away from the foundation of your home which is essential to your home’s structural integrity. The problems start when the gutter system is not functional or absent completely. Water is very damaging to every aspect of not only your home and yard but to the very community you work and live in. Homeowners never make a great impression with their neighbors or the HOA when their home’s stormwater runoff has caused trenches or ponds in other neighbor’s yards or the community’s public areas. Rain-Go Exteriors can help you keep the peace with your neighbors and HOA as we provide Custom Seamless Aluminum Gutter installation, repair and replacement along with Gutter Guards to keep the leaves and debris from clogging your gutters. The environment also thanks you as stormwater and waste are detrimental to the natural habitats of all living organisms especially our precious water resources such as tributaries, lakes, rivers and finally our oceans.
Siding Replacement, Installation & Exterior Remodel Services
Rain-Go Exteriors provides installation/replacement and repair of all types of siding such as fiber cement, vinyl and wood. Siding protects your home as it serves as a waterproof barrier and compliments your roof and gutters. Water is good for harvesting in rain barrels but water not properly contained can cause profound damage to a home exterior by warping and rotting fascia, soffits, windows, doors, porches and decks. Excess moisture also can cause mold spores which can be deadly to you and your family. Siding also provides excellent insulation with wood being the best but insulated vinyl siding qualifies for energy rebates with James Hardie fiber cement being the longest lasting. Any homeowner that replaces their siding no matter what the material will have a very high percentage of return on their investment as a new siding installation drastically improves your home curb appeal.
We are second to none and take pride in the quality of our work. Call us today at (919) 875-0700
From roof repair to new shingles, our roofing team has years of experience to make your roof last for many years to come.

Our Customer Reviews Speak for Themselves! Rain-Go Exteriors.
In 2011 we had problems with our original 17-year-old gutters. The previous owners had let them clog and it caused facia rot. RainGo removed the old gutters, repaired the wood rot, and installed new gutters with over-sized downspouts and leaf guards (“helmets”). Since that time, we’ve saved about $150 a year because we no longer have to do 2x a year gutter cleanings.
Tim Howell, the owner, made a couple of visits to our home in late July to provide us a quote on the repairs. He provided helpful information about various alternatives. I felt no pressure to select a higher-priced alternative, and he even questioned the value of certain higher priced alternatives we were considering. I considered the quote for about one month and formally requested the work on Sept 3. At that time, they were booked through mid-Oct. Tim called back on Oct 23 to provide us an estimated start date. (They had experienced delays due to 12 straight days of rain in late Sept.). The work commenced on Wed Nov 4, and the entire job was completed on Fri Nov 6 at the end of the day. Tim did not require payment until after the job was completed to our satisfaction.
We searched for a reliable contractor for 3 months to make repairs to our home. A close friend had used Rain-Go and highly recommended them to us. We contacted them and several days later Tim came out to the house. He listened to me talk about the leaky north-facing bay window, the small leaks in the Dining room windows, the gaps in the siding and a few other improvement items.
A few years ago, I used Rain-Go to replace a gutter that fell down. While they were here, they checked all of the other gutters and adjusted them. At that time, I was told my roof was going to need replacing in a year or two. Recently (over two years later) I started having leaks and I called Rain-Go. They attempted to patch the leaks on two occasions but the roof really did need replacing. I now have a new roof which will probably outlast me! While they were here, they replaced and adjusted some of the older gutters and put gutter guards on them. I am very happy with the work Rain-Go does and would not call anyone else! It is nice to find someone you trust.
They fixed my furnace flue & were a tremendous help with a roofing/gutter inspection. Wonderful people & service. I would use them again.
I was very impressed with Rain-Go! Tim Howell met with my wife while I was at work. He gave a detailed explanation of the proposed work. When i called him to discuss the proposal he actually answered the phone after 5pm. He answered all my questions to my satisfaction.
The installers arrived early in the morning as promised by Tim. The installers installed the gutters exactly as proposed. They gave a detailed invoice to my wife stating the 10 year Workmanship Warranty and 20 year Material Warranty.
I could not be more pleased with Rain-Go and would definitely recommend them to anyone in the market for gutters!
I was totally impressed with the work done by RainGo. When Tim came out for the estimate, he spent THREE hours assessing every inch of our home. Suzanne was terrific to work with getting our home scheduled and running through all the details. And Tim’s team was fantastic — true craftsmen who worked full days throughout the job! They were respectful, did quality work — the roofing, wood rot repair, and painting — and cleaned up throughly at the completion of each day. Praises all around for a job well done!
These guys are first class! The owner Tim is a stand up guy who is super professional and explains in detail exactly what makes them differant and how they go the extra mile to make your roof bullet proof! We had several other companies come out to give us estimates but after talk with Tim, seeing his work and having another satisfied customer referring me to him, I was sold. They work fast but are very thorough and did a great job leaving things nice and clean as they exited our job site. I highly reccomend these guys if you want the best craftsmanship and best materials to be used on your roof. These guys are top notch!
My family’s home needed new siding and gutters. I searched for a few different companies online and found a few that interested me. After reading reviews and checking their websites, I made some calls. Speaking with Rain-Go Exteriors gave me the confidence that I had found the best company for our home. They told me to check out some of their videos on YouTube to see how they perform their jobs. Tim came out and gave me an estimate and explained exactly what the process would be. I decided to go with Rain-Go and they completed the job beyond my satisfaction. If I ever need additional home repairs, I will certainly call them again
If you want professionals too do your work with a eye for details “ call these guys !!! Could not have asked for a better job than what they have done and went way out of their way to do the job !! Thanks Tim and Steve……
During the hurricane, i had my first ever leak. I didn’t know what to do. A friend recommended Tim at Rain-Go. I called and Susan returned my call quickly, was so kind, and got all my information. She noted down which days I was off from work. Then I heard from Tim; he was also super friendly and came right out. He showed me the roof and explained everything to me. Luckily I only needed a very small repair, Tim had what he needed in his truck and was able to take care of everything right then !!!!! He was so friendly, so helpful, and so genuinely interestered in educating me about roofs and how they work !!!!! I cannot recommend him enough!!!!! And I will absolutely be calling him in the event that I need roofing (or any other services he offers cause he just plain does good work) in the future. He’s got my business! Thanks Tim & Susan!
We used Rain-Go Exteriors before to perform some gutter repair. We were so impressed by Tim (the owner) and Steve (a foreman) that we chose them to re-roof our entire house.
Tim did a great job clearly explaining all roofing options, the materials to be used and the re-roofing process from start to finish.
I found out about Rain-Go shortly after I first moved to North Carolina in 2007. I was searching online for a company to install new gutters on a home I owned at the time in Wake Forest, and saw several rave reviews online. I called and asked for an estimate. Tim met me at the house, gave me a great price, and I hired him. Great job! Fast forward to 2014, I was having my house exterior in Raleigh painted a couple of weeks ago and wanted to install new, larger gutters. I didn’t even get any other estimates, as I knew I would be hiring Tim again. I asked him to quote some minor roof repairs as well. The work was completed yesterday, and they did a wonderful job! My husband is pretty hard to please, and after seeing their work, he told me we will definitely be calling Tim again when we need to replace the roof. I would not hesitate to recommend this company.
Completely satisfied with the process start to finish. The six inch gutters with guards were reasonably priced and installed well. Commitment met, communication good.
A+++ I couldn’t have asked for a better experience!
New Deck, New gutters with guards, replaced 2 exterior doors, replaced a good bit of external trim and corner boards
Tim arrived very quickly for a walk around and estimate following my initial contact with Susan. We discussed several projects on our to do list. Tim made recommendations as to how certain items needed to be addressed. He completed the estimate during the first visit and advised when the next opening in their schedule would be.
Beautiful work by Tim, Steve and the entire Raingo crew. Thank you!
Excellent work! Had a roof and gutters with covers installed. A shingle was stained accidentally and they came right out and replaced the stained shingles. Good to deal with. Honest, upfront with the price and back the warranty.
I’ve used Rain-Go twice now and couldn’t be more pleased with the quality of their work and the professionalism of their business. They installed gutters and gutter guards on my house 10 years ago and I just had them come back out and install gutter guards on a screened porch addition. They were responsive, prompt, and I competitive in the price of their services. I highly recommend Tim and his company for any home improvement work you might be considering.
Rain-Go put new gutters/downspouts on a screened in porch I completed. When the gutters and leaf guards were installed there was some concern as to the pitch of the roof and the volume of water that the gutters could be able to handle. The crew created divertors to direct the flow more evenly as it reached the gutters. 8 months later I called to let them know that the divertors were trapping debris causing to leaf guard to clog up and lessen the effectiveness of the gutters. Susan had a crew out within a few days to address the problem and make corrections that are proving to be effective. I remain impressed with this company, their staff and the way they have stood behind their work without giving it a second thought. I will definetely use them for additional work and have recommended Rain-Go to several friends.
Great experience! Tim’s crew did a great job of replacing our roof, replacing rotten trim and fascia, installing new gutters, and repainting/staining our house, deck, and screened in porch. Highly recommend!
Simply outstanding work done ahead of schedule at a great price with an extremely courteous staff from sales to installation.
I wish all contractors were as good!
Great job by the Rain-Go team! Tim was excellent and came out himself and gave a quote on a new roof and gutters. Right away I could tell that he was a stand-up guy whose goal was to make me happy with the work they do. I did not even need to get other quotes. I had a 19-year-old roof replaced and new gutters. The crew was very efficient and cleaned up very good after the work was done. Highly recommend Tim and his Rain-Go team. (Oh, yes and the new roof looks awesome!)
Great experience from the first call to the job completion. Friendly and prompt communication, a good education on gutters and downspounts to help us make an informed decision, and outstanding work. We love our new gutters, gutter guards and downspouts.
– Tim earned my trust to take on siding, windows, paint, roof, gutters, and gutter guards on my house.
– Tim was very responsive during all phases of work and initially came by the house 4 different times to discuss various scope options.
– Tim is customer focused, he will take on 100% of the financial liability until the customer is fully satisfied and has a 10 year workmanship warranty. He is truly passionate about making you the customer excited about the outcome.
Rain Go was recommended by a contractor friend and we cannot be more pleased with their service. Most recently, Tim fit us in to inspect what we believed to be roof leak. He did a thorough inspection and determined that our roof is fine, but we did have a humidity problem with the ceiling dry wall and tape. This is the third time we have called Rain Go, and in every instance I have found them to be prompt and professional while providing high quality service. I highly recommend Rain Go.
We had several estimates on our roof and gutters, plus estimates on our other rental homes. Tim and his team were excellent every step of the way. The entire team, especially Steve, were always kind, courteous and professional. These guys works fast and they are in sync on what everyone needs to do. Roof and gutters look perfect! Thanks Tim, Steve and the rest of the team to include Susan in the office! You guys know your stuff!
Tim Howell and the his Rain-Go crew completed a new roof, replaced wood siding with James Hardie siding, new exterior paint, and installed a new gutter system for our house. I was impressed with the superlative attention to detail throughout the entire process from estimate to completion. We were kept well informed of any issues with the job or scheduling. All questions were addressed with consideration and concern. Tim is a perfectionist and the completed job is a work of art. I would recommend Rain-Go without hesitation.
They showed up on schedule at 0730 and worked straight through until 1600. They replaced all my gutters, replaced and painted any rotten wood, removed all debris and spent half an hour cleaning up. We’ve had a lot of work done on the house over the years and these guys were the best crew I’ve ever seen. 10 out of 10!
10 years ago, we had new gutters and rain guards installed by Rain Go and they have worked perfectly all this time. I thought it would be a good idea to have them inspected so I called Rain Go and Tim the owner came out to inspect them. He went up on the ladder and informed me that they were completely clear and no adjustments were needed. Excellent, honest customer service and great installation work!
Tim and his installers did an excellent job! When we got quotes, he was the only vendor who actually went on our roof and took pictures of problem areas. They completed the job in one day, and cleaned up completely. The gutters look great and we recommend him highly. Great job!
I had a very small repair done on my roof due to tree damage, the service was fast , excellent and friendly and they did an Good job.Looking forward to working with them again in the future.
I have used Rain-go over the past 10 years and they have done a variety of work to include whole house gutter replacement, gutter caps, replaced most of homes siding and done window replacements. All the work was done in an outstanding manner at a fair price. I have recommended them to dozens of people who have all had the same great experience. From the initial contact with Susan to the expertly project management by Tim Howell – it’s always been a great experience.
Tim and his crew did a great job for us last year. New roof and gutters in just a few days, guys cleaned up great behind themselves. Susan in the office is great to work with. We had a small problem over Thanksgiving weekend this year. We left a message for Tim and Susan actually called us back within a few hours and Tim was out first thing Monday morning, this over a holiday weekend, that is awesome. Great job and great service.

I Have used this company for many years and They
are prompt and when thy say there will be there
they are on time Good workmanship.Looking forward
to working with them again in the future.
Rain-Go was an incredible company to work with. I highly recommend them! They replaced my roof, gutters, a window, and did several other repairs on the exterior of my house. They were professional, timely & efficient, and most of all, HONEST. They cleaned up every night before leaving. They paid close attention to detail and their work was superior! Tim made everything easy for me from the estimate through the final day of work. Susan (in the office) was friendly, organized, and patient with all of my questions. The crew has been together for years, and all of them were great to work with. They took a project that had completely overwhelmed me & completed it in a timely, orderly fashion, for a fair price. I will definitely be using them again in the future.
RainGo is an amazing company to work with. We contacted Tim when pricing gutters for our home but then reviewing his website I realized he also did decks and exterior work. He was straightforward and I was happy that they only used full time employees for their jobs. We had Tim install our gutters and then replace an exterior door. Steve, his crew manager, was efficient and always willing to listen to my requests. Tim visited at the end of each job to make sure we were pleased and we were.
This company understands the meaning of “quality”, not just in their product materials but in their installation and support. We hired Tim (& Rain-Go) close to 9 years ago and they installed an esthetically attractive system on our new house with gutter guards that have worked beautifully all these years. In the process of selling our house the buyers inspector pointed out an area of concern so I contacted Rain-Go to see what could be done to address it.
Tim and crew did an outstanding job of installing the gutters on our house. The gutters blend right in well and they were very through on cleanup.
Rain-Go installed a new gutter that extended the full length of the second-story of my house. The crew was friendly, very efficient, and got the job done in a timely manner. I was fully satisfied and can recommend them if you need gutter work done.
I am happy to write a recommendation for the work recently completed by Rain-Go. Competitive bid, very professional, great crew. Not only did they install new gutters and downspouts, they also correctly identified the area where bats had entered the fascia. Great experience!
TLDR: Extremely professional, polite, candid, and honest. I don’t know that I’ve worked with ANY company that treated me so much like a human being and not a potential profit.
Seems that every 5 star review has said the exact same things I was going to say in my review.I contacted Rain-Go a few months back and met with Tim at my house. We spent about an hour in the driveway discussing the ins and outs of home repairs and all that I was looking to have done.
Charlie, the owner, gave us a fair estimate on the day and time he promised. The work was scheduled after a roofing job and before exterior painting. Rain-Go was able to work in that one-day window and did not hold up our project. Charlie worked alongside his crew and made sure everything was done correctly. Since then, we’ve had some very heavy downpours and the gutter system works fine. I should also add that Charlie has a very nice personality and was a pleasure to work with.
they came and gave an estimate when they said they would, were able to schedule job quickly. performed work on the date they gave, did everything we talked about, went over the job after, I asked them to make one small change which they did, and the price was what they quoted, and even offered a discount. Looks great, functions far better that beofre, don’t know what hey could have done better
Work was done quickly, as requested. They attempted to address a difficult situation with a valley area and not much space for a gutter, but it was not successfully dealt with. Other than that, everything was done to my satisfaction. It was done quite a while ago, so I don’t remember all the details, but overall it was a positive experience and I would recommend this company to anyone looking for gutter installation.
I have to say dealing with Charlie was the best experince I have every had with any contractor he is very profesional does what he says he will do, I needed my gutters and facia replaced at my home Charlie came out and gave an exelent price he was $500 to $1000 less then any other company in the area. He started the day at 9am and was finished at around 3pm with two other workers. I would recommend this company to anyone in the area that is looking to have their gutters replaced!
I called Rain-Go Seamless Gutters based on previous reviews on Angies List as I was looking for a reliable company to do a seasonal gutter cleaning. I spoke to Charles Savarese and he provided a verbal quote of $75 based on the description of my home that I had provided to him. Charles and two of his team members showed up as scheduled on June 12, 2013. They did the work very quickly and demonstrated a high level of professionalism. I was pleasantly surprised when Charles advised that the job would only cost $50. That level of honesty ensured me that the prior Angies List recommendations of this company were right on point. I commend Mr. Savarase on his integrity and definitely recommend his company to those seeking to have work done on their gutters.
Charlie and his team were great. You would have to be an idiot to go with those brother guys. For just the gutters and downspouts, the brother guys were three times the amount at 1500 bucks. When I asked them about it, they didn’t seem too concerned, they said they could only go down 200 bucks. Charlie and his crew came within the week, gave me the gutter for a great price and then I added the gutter guards for $900. That is 600 bucks less than the brother guys quoted me for just the gutters. I will be calling Charlie back to put gutters on my garage as well as call him back for cleaning. GREAT GROUP OF GUYS. I was happy to give him my money for the quality of the work they did. Again you would have to be crazy to go with the Brother guys.
Charlie responded to my call promptly and provided an estimate on a Fri. which was one day after my call. i called him on Sat. and left message indicating I wanted to proceed and he called me back and scheduled installation for Mon. Everything went well with installation, cleanup, etc. Charlie is very personable and his team was very nice. The price was very competitive and I will call him back for cleaning.
Charlie installed leaf-guards on my gutters 7 years ago. After calling to report a loose panel recently he showed up within a week, repaired the panel, inspected all the gutters and blew off my roof…… all at no charge 7 years after purchase. Outstanding customer service!
They replaced all our gutters.
He was great. He was extremely professional. He was on time. His price was the price he quoted. The whole thing took maybe three or four hours.
