This is a very decorative way to hide the ugly downspouts from top to bottom. Trellises are designed to fit around vertical items. These will add to your curb appeal, landscape elements, and conceal every portion of the downspout. We recommend clematis vines to add to trellises as they are gorgeous flowering vines that are easy to maintain. They also don’t grow out of control, aren’t too heavy, nor are they invasive.
One way to make your downspouts less conspicuous includes painting them a different hue. They don’t necessarily have to be the same color as your siding, although that would look really nice, just ensure they don’t contrast with the house. Metal primer and appropriate paint can match the color of your home and is easy to find. There will be a paint to match any type of your home’s exterior material – brick, stucco, vinyl, etc. This can be cumbersome, but very inexpensive. It will also really help camouflage those downspouts that you despise.
Rain chains are appropriate when downspouts are connected to a permanent awning or something else that is not directly connected to the house. Water will run down the chains, and the homeowner can spruce them up with concrete or cast resin splash guards. This could also be a great way to water a gorgeous plant by attaching it to the end of each chain.
As with any aspect of your home, you have the ability to get creative in order to liven up your gutter system and downspouts. For more information about gutter installation at your home, contact the local experts at Gutter Professionals, Inc.
