Gutters and downspouts divert rainwater at a safe distance from your property. When these components are in bad shape, your siding, roof, windows, basement and landscaping can suffer from water damage. While they are vital to your home, downspouts can sometimes reduce your home’s curb appeal.
A trusted gutter installation contractor shares ways you can hide unsightly downspouts.
Blend Your Siding With the Environment
Vines can grow in any direction since they have flexible branches. You can place them on top of your downspouts so they will grow downward. Some kinds of vines you should consider are annual sweet pea, cup-and-saucer, and evergreen clematis.
Another option to consider is a trellis where you can grow vines or other greeneries. Planting in a trellis will create a green wall that conceals your downspouts. You usually do not need to worry about the plants affecting your home’s curb appeal since they go well with nearly all siding colors and materials.
Choose a Downspout Color Similar to Your Siding
One of the easiest ways to make your downspouts less noticeable is to paint them the same color as your siding. You can also go for a different hue as long as it complements your roofing system and the rest of your home’s exterior. Just be sure to choose the right type of paint for the material of your downspouts
Consider Replacing Your Downspouts
Downspouts can become unsightly due to damage or old age. If this is the case for you, consider investing in a new one. A reputable contractor will help you choose the best type of gutters and downspouts that will protect your home and elevate its appearance.
