This is a rain chain we installed on a customers home. The rain chain is a sequence of cups used to drain water out of the gutters, used in lieu of a standard spout.
For most of us our homes are the biggest investment we have. Seamless gutters help us protect your home from rain runoff. Rain uncontrolled by gutters can damage your home in many ways, as seen here. In this picture you see wasted money on mulch, stained brick and stone, and one of the biggest fears erosion to the soil. This erosion can cause severe damage to your foundation.
Some of us do have gutters, hopefully they do their job and we never have any issues. However some of us have trees and kids. Having a home surrounded by trees is what many of us want, however if you have gutters and you don't maintain your gutters you can have big problems. In the picture above there was a sapling growing in the gutter. If you fail to maintain your gutters you can cause damage to your roof, fascia, or cause water to leak inside your home. Kids also get tennis balls, golf balls, and other toys stuck in the spouts. So if you have a spout that's not draining check it for toys or leaves.
In short seamless means we are able to make long runs without piecing gutter together. Some gutters are made in various lengths and have to be pieced together. Seamless gutters are aesthetically appealing, have smooth lines, and less potential to leak.
Always work hard.
