Enhancing Your Home’s Exterior

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

They 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.

Water channels can serve as a way to control heavy runoff, specifically in areas that experience heavy rain. They also look beautiful and can really accent a backyard. There are a number of options that really allow you to get creative. You can even personalize and design your own water channel. Go one step further by accenting the pond/channel with items such as lily pads, garden areas, and rocks. Even add fish to bring life and color to your channel.Who doesn’t love a pool on a hot summer day, right? But your home’s curb appeal can also love a pool. Whether it is an in ground or above ground pool it can be appealing to the eye, especially if you take some time to style it. Adding a deck around an above ground pool can easily enhance it. Decorate your pool area with bright patio furniture, and plants to complete the package.
