Downspouts are great at keeping moisture damage to your property at bay, but they can take away from your home’s curb appeal if you are not careful. Fortunately, it’s possible to hide them with the help of a gutter and siding contractor.
Here are some ideas you can consider:
Blend It In
As they run the length of your roof down to the ground, downspouts can be very visible. However, you can tuck them away from sight without covering them up by making sure they blend in with the rest of your home’s exterior. You can do this by having your downspouts painted to match your siding. You can also choose a different color but just make sure your choice doesn’t contrast with the main color of your home so your downspouts don’t stand out.
Turn to Nature
Another way you can hide downspouts under metal roofing is to take advantage of vines and trellises. While this method isn’t a quick solution because you have to give crawling plants time to grow and make their way through trellises, it feels natural, and can be particularly complementing if you already have landscaping. For a homier feel, you can choose flowering vines. For convenient upkeep, choose vines that don’t grow out of control or are invasive.
Is It Time for a Replacement?
A lot of the time, downspouts are unsightly because they have deteriorated too much. Before looking for a way to hide them, do have them checked out first by a professional. If they’re damaged and too worn out, best to have them replaced first before coming up with a way to keep them out of sight.
