Patrick grew up in Los Angeles, CA, and started selling candy at a nearby flea market when he was six. He had a sweet tooth and found it difficult to stop himself from eating the inventory. By the end of the summer, when he added up his profits, he discovered that it was worth it.
He has wanted to own a business ever since. He became interested in real estate while he was still in high school in 2004 and has purchased homes every few years since 2006. Patrick decided to join the military after seeing the world change with the events of 9/11, so he enlisted as a Private after high school. He was accepted into West Point two years later. After 13 years of service, Patrick retired from the Army as a Captain. He worked at Nucor and Amazon before joining The Brothers that just do Gutters.
Patrick was especially interested in providing a service in a construction environment that affords him a balance of time spent outside as well as inside. A balance that is most comfortable for him after spending all those years in the field during his military service. He was looking to franchise with a business where he would learn and grow. In addition, he wanted to find a business that was a good cultural fit. After working with two different cultural extremes at Nucor and Amazon, he was looking for a middle ground.
I first became interested in The Brothers that just do Gutters when I saw the franchise FDD. The reason I chose Brothers Gutters became apparent during my visit and seeing one of their team meetings firsthand. I was very impressed with how the field workers were becoming leaders and the overall culture of learning and growth that I witnessed. I want to focus on growth within my teammates, not only for work but also for personal growth to best meet their potential and overall happiness.

In 1999 Ken Parsons had just left the teaching industry and started his own gutter contractor company under the name Waterfall Seamless Gutters. In 2002 Ken’s younger brother, Ryan Parsons, accepted a job on the truck with Ken after the Graphic Design company he was working for crashed. In 2006 the Brothers briefly changed their name to Water-flow Gutter Solutions before finally becoming “The Brothers that just do Gutters” in 2009. The name we all know and love came from a radio ad the Brothers ran just a couple years prior to the change. Everyone who heard it liked it so much they thought it was the company name so Ken and Ryan stopped fighting it and adopted the name. With the name change came a few title changes as well. We decided we no longer wanted to be salesman, presidents or owners but rather Solutionists©, which embodied what we represent to our clients. Ken Parsons was re-entitled Senior Solutionist©, and Ryan Parsons became Chief Solutionist©.
