Gutters are an important part of every home. When you decide on which gutters to install on your house, consider both their aesthetic appeal and functionality.

Depending on whether you want a modern or a traditional look, you can choose from the myriad gutter types available in the market.
Rains chains are beautiful and easy to install, and they smoothly guide the rain water from the gutter to the ground. Rain chains are a perfect way to add a unique feature to any home, and are available in many styles, the most common ones being cup and link designs. Although link designs are more common, they tend to splash more water, so think twice before installing them close to doors or windows.
Seamless Copper Guttering
Seamless copper gutters are considered the best gutters available in the market. They are known for their resilience and beauty. According to real estate experts, the houses that feature seamless copper gutters fetch higher prices in the market compared to other similar properties in the same area. Seamless copper gutters are available in many designs, and homeowners can choose the one that goes best with their home design and serves their needs best.
Leader heads are also known as conductor heads, rainwater heads, scupper boxes, and rain collectors. Leader heads collect water from the gutter roof and channel it into downspouts that guide it down to the ground. These are also decorative gutters that can be used to bond several downspouts together or render an aesthetic touch to the downspout. They are available in a wide variety of styles to suit your home’s architecture style. The leader heads are preferred as a decorative feature as they add a design element to any downspout and enhance their look considerably.
If you want to make a style statement and add a distinctive character to your home, then decorative downspouts make a perfect choice. Decorative downspouts are mostly used with copper gutters, but you can request your guttering company to create them for your aluminium gutters as well. These are available in a wide range of designs to suit every budget size and style preference.
St. Louis guttering experts believe that while decorative gutters can make a huge difference to your home’s curb appeal, homeowners must be careful in their selection of gutters and ensure that they are installed properly.
