Rain chains are a classy alternative to downspouts. How they work is that the rain chains break the fall of water, and direct it downward to the ground, or into another gutter on a different level.
They also can direct into basins for water storage. Rain chains also have a unique sound when rain is going through them. It is not too loud, but if you listen carefully, it creates a tranquil sound.
They add elegance and charm to any house old or new.
Rain chains come in a variety of materials like; copper, iron, brass, and aluminum.
Using leaf traps reduces the amount of leaves that will make their way down the downspouts and eventually clog your drains.
When we install Leaf Traps we will leave the outlet in the gutter without a strainer, which allows small leaves and debris to flush down the downspout and be filtered out by the Leaf Trap.
They are easy to empty, and it is a much better alternative than getting out a ladder to clean your gutters. It will not eliminate the need to clean your gutters, however, it will reduce the amount of times per year that you will need to do this.
Using leaf guards reduces the amount of maintenance and cleaning you need to do of your gutters. It will not completely eliminate your maintenance, however, it will greatly reduce it.
We use the T-Rex Leaf Guard System for standard aluminum, and steel gutters.
