Customize Your Rain Gutters and Give Your Home Additional Value
June 17, 2016
Rain gutters are an essential aspect of your home. They collect and dispose of rainwater in a proper way to protect the integrity of your home and prevent serious damage. The design of this system tends to be standard for all houses - sometimes it can be even boring, but this is not a rule. During the rain gutter installation
process, part of the job of the technician who is performing the task is to ask the client about his or her personal preferences for the home's design. That way, the water-collection system can be adapted to the client's personal approach.
Some of the elements of this system are easier to decorate than others and can make your home look really awesome. The most popular ways to customize the water-collection system are the following:
Rain chains are functional and decorative devices that replace drainpipes. They have the same basic function – taking rainwater from the rain gutter to a point on the ground. Nevertheless, rain chains perform this function and additionally improve the aesthetic aspect of the house. Instead of being funneled through the inside of a pipe, the water runs down the ornamental chain links to the drainage system or to a decorative container that matches the rain chain, such as a lovely water fountain or a beautiful bowl.
Copper rain gutters.
Copper is an ornamental and long-lasting material, which is why it is used for external structures. You can give your rain gutters a personal touch with copper. It is a very beautiful material and it offers you the ability to make ornaments with it, like little animal statues that look like they're drinking water from the rain gutter. An additional great feature of copper is the creation of natural patina, which is a layer that forms over the copper thanks to the dirt or water in the air, which actually helps protect it.
Drainpipes don't have to be changed for rain chains to be part of a house's decoration. With a few arrangements, they can decorate the house in a great way too. People often decorate drainpipes by adding an animal statue at the end of the pipe, so it will look like water is flowing out through the animal's mouth. That way, you won't have a boring drainpipe.
The Additional Value
Through the process of customizing your rain gutters, you add extra value to your home because it can match your personality, your artistic side, and who you are.
