In a nutshell, what does your business provide its customers and how would you describe your business to a potential client?
Five Star provides a safe, inexpensive product for homeowners to protect their investment.  Homes are unique and individual and we help supply each client individual service based on their needs, their goals and their budgets.  Rain gutters are important to the conservation of one of our most precious resources.  We work hard to keep out clients’ homes safe from water erosion, while helping them capture rain water via rain barrels or water tanks.

Give us a brief history of your business, and be sure to include any previous major achievements.
Five Star began as a small partnership in a little storage unit off of Traffic Way.  For the last 30 years, we have been the name for Rain Gutters all along the Central Coast.  From installing copper rain gutters at famous wineries, to helping to maintain gutters at our famous castle and the ever growing Madonna Inn.  We are proud to supply a constant presence, exceptional customer service, and professional advice to the families, business owners, and contractors in our neighborhoods and beyond.  With an office and a warehouse, we have outgrown the storage unit of our humble beginnings, and grow every day, in spirit, size, and abilities.

We are an ever-growing family business, with sights on growth, prosperity, and well-being for all of our employees and all of our community.  From unexpected rain falls to the dreaded drought, we stand by our ability to keep your home safe and protected, with the ability to harvest precious rain water, keeping gutters clean from dry plants and foliage, and other preventive measures to ensure the live of your investment.  Because the second biggest investment in your life is your home, where you care for your first investment:  Your Family!
