Rain chains are an aesthetically pleasing alternative to a traditional downspout. The water visibly runs down a chain and/or decorative cups creating an awesome water piece, while also serving the same purpose a downspout would. The water also creates a soothing sound to listen to.
Outdoor art collections can add a pop to any patio or backyard. Art can range from an actual piece like a painting on a canvas that is hung on your home, or a sculpture/architectural piece.
Outdoor fireplaces can really add to your backyard and give it an extra homey feel. This is great if you entertain, as it creates a place to hang out at night, stay warm on cooler nights, and help keep bugs away. Aside from having clear functionality, it looks great. Updating your patio or adding a deck, can also serve the same purposes as a fire pit or outdoor fireplace.
Specialty gutters can serve as a useful but appealing decoration for your home. When it is time for an update to your gutter system, consider these options to add beauty to your home:
- Galvanized – steel substrate coated in zinc (offers a very glossy appearance)
- Galvalume – aluminum-zinc hybrid coating (offers a more rustic feel, silver metallic can also be used in more modern architecture designs)
- Copper – initially offers a shiny gold look, but will eventually turn a dark brown or green color for an antique feel
- Colored – Many homeowners are unaware that aluminum seamless gutters are available in various colors. White aluminum gutters are the standard, but a colored gutter system can add a unique appeal to your home. Our colored gutters, like our white, have a baked-on finish, which will not oxidize as fast as other traditional gutters.
