Used in Japan for many years, rain chains offer an aesthetically pleasing alternative to the standard downspout. Our rain chains typically weigh between 5 and 10 pounds, and are made using high quality 100% pure copper (a copper-brass mix is also available). Rain chains attach to the gutter through the hole where the downspout would normally be. They can be attached to a decorative bowl that fills with water and creates a circular fountain when it overflows. Rain chains can also be strategically placed over gardens for the purposes of watering and décor.
These copper pieces change color over time, adding a sense of beauty to your home’s exterior even in dry weather. Feng Shui professionals install these Japanese-inspired gems to the home, adding an air of serenity to the outdoor surroundings. Homeowners enjoy listening to the sound of rainfall puttering against sturdy metal.
Although rain chains can help provide a soothing outdoor environment, they are not as well-equipped for a sudden storm. Therefore, it is recommended that they be used in conjunction with some traditional downspouts placed elsewhere on the house or building. Our professionals can advise you on the proper placement of each item to ensure maximum protection.
There are many different styles of rain chains available, including chain link and cup styles. Cups are available in a variety of sizes, as well as interesting and ornate shapes such as bells and flowers. Call or visit us today and see what lovely designs we have available for you.
