Benefits Of Adding A Rain Chain To Your Home

A rain chain is a decorative addition to your gutter system that has many values. Discover the benefits of replacing your classic rain gutter spout with a rain chain instead. Discuss your options with your rain gutter installation specialist.

Curb Appeal

A rain chain adds beauty to your home's exterior. The addition of a rain chain offers dimension and texture to your classic gutter system, providing a simple upgrade that boosts your home's curb appeal.

Unique Design

Adding a rain chain to your current rain gutter system is a unique way to make your home stand out. A rain chain comes in a variety of materials and thicknesses to suit your home's needs and design best.

Rain chains come in metal styles, such as aluminum, steel, or copper. Choosing a copper rain chain is a wise choice as the material naturally oxidizes into a beautiful tarnished pattern that is pleasing to the eye.

Effective Moisture Control 

Having a rain chain added to your property allows you to have effective moisture control. The main purpose of your rain gutter system is this: keeping water away from your home's foundation. A rain chain functions just like a rain spout does, allowing water to leave your home's property line in an attractive way.

Easy Upgrade

If you want to upgrade your home's exterior, but you don't have a lot of money to spend, consider adding a rain chain to your existing gutter design. A rain chain upgrades your home's basic gutter system while giving your home a more modern, charming appeal. Costs for a rain chain vary depending on the type of metal you choose and the length, thickness, and style of rain chain you want.

Easy Maintenance

Since a rain chain is not a tubular structure, the feature won't get clogged with debris like nests or leaves. This makes a rain chain very easy to clean. If your rain chain gets dirty, simply spray it down with a hose or a pressure washing unit.

A rain chain is easy to care for in general: once the feature is installed, you just have to check the chain periodically to make sure it's not coming loose or missing any links.

Your rain gutter specialist will install your new rain chain on your home. Never install a rain chain on your own, or you risk hurting yourself or damaging your gutter system in the process. Your rain gutter specialist will give you an estimate for installation.
