With personal integrity and a mechanical mind well beyond his years, Jonathan Mellett is an asset to The Brothers that just do Gutters. Growing up in Brewster, NY, Jonathan worked in many aspects of the construction trade while pursuing art, music, and church leadership. After graduating high school, he attended Hillsong International Leadership College in Sydney, Australia and achieved a Diploma of Ministry. Upon returning to New York, Jonathan became the worship leader at his local church and continued working as a carpenter. His skills had occasionally been called on by his brother-in-law, Ryan Parsons, to help install and clean gutters for The Brothers, but these casual side jobs became more serious after accepting a sales opportunity through the company. Under Ryan and Ken’s established eyes, Jonathan became a valuable all-around team resource, honing his sales experience while refining his natural hands-on talents.
In the summer of 2009, Jonathan moved with his wife Emily to Tinton Falls, New Jersey to become the worship leader at a new church plant, while working in the construction industry. After perceiving a need in the area for an experienced, high quality gutter company, Jonathan began conversing with Ryan and Ken about expanding to New Jersey. It quickly became apparent that The Brothers would be an invaluable resource to the local community, and Jonathan, with his knowledge, experience, and impeccable character, was the man for the job. Along with his wife and their newborn son Corban, Jonathan is thrilled to offer the New Jersey area an accomplished and reliable gutter service that is “The Brothers that just do Gutters”.
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©.
Being in the gutter contractor business for over 15 years was an effort of adaptation and determination. We have been able to be successful for so long because we made our main focus the customer. The Brothers that just do Gutters offer a wide variety of installations, cleaning and repairs in a small niche industry of seamless rain gutters and leaf guards. We have been able to grow the reliability of our services and offer only the best products by focusing all our effort on gutter systems and guards.
Our mantra, “Reinventing Contractor Service™” is the phrase we live by in all areas of our business, every day. The story of The Brothers that just do Gutters began with hard work and a dream to be a community-loved contractor. We wanted to reinvent how clients experience contractor services and provide a level of customer service and reliability that was lacking in our industry.
Along the way, we had to learn to move at the speed of business and invent many new methods never before implemented in the contractor field. Meeting our goal of being a five-star contractor and reinventing contractor service meant focusing on every detail of the job. By creating a unique experience with the homeowner, investing in our employees, sourcing the best products, and creating training methods for publishing every review a homeowner made on our independent review services, we started to rise above the rest.
