The Story Behind Rain Chains
The use of rain chains can be traced back to ancient Japan, where they were known as "kusari toi". These chains were typically made of bamboo or ceramic, and were used to guide rainwater from the roofs of homes and temples to the ground or to collection basins. In Japan, rain chains were not only functional, but also considered a form of art and were often decorated with ornate designs and motifs.
Over time, rain chains spread beyond Japan and became popular throughout Asia and Europe. In recent years, they have gained popularity in North America as well, as homeowners and designers seek out unique and beautiful alternatives to traditional downspouts.
Today, rain chains are available in a wide variety of materials, including copper, brass, aluminum, and stainless steel, and come in many different designs and styles.
What materials are rain chains made of, and how do I choose the right one for my home?
Our rain chains are made of pure copper and brass, which can withstand harsh weather conditions and is resistant to rust and corrosion. Over time, our copper rain chains develop a beautiful natural patina that adds character and charm to your home. Copper and brass rain chains are popular for their durability, aesthetic appeal, and sustainability. So, when choosing a copper and brass rain chain, you're investing in your home's aesthetic appeal and functionality.
What is the difference between cup rain chains and link rain chains, and which one is best for my home?
Cup rain chains and link rain chains are two popular styles. Cup rain chains use a series of cups to direct water down the chain, while link rain chains use interlocking links. Cup rain chains are best for heavier rainfalls, while link chains are better suited to lighter rains.
Will a rain chain be as effective as a traditional downspout at managing water runoff from my roof?
Rain chains are just as effective as traditional downspouts in managing water runoff and, in some cases, can be even more efficient. The chains' cups or links help slow the water flow, allowing it to disperse more evenly over a larger area.
How do I install a rain chain, and will I need any special tools or equipment?
Installing a rain chain is relatively easy and typically requires only a few basic tools, such as a screwdriver and a ladder. Also, our rain chains come with all the necessary installation instructions to help make the process as easy as possible.
Can I use a rain chain with a flat or low-pitched roof, or is it only suitable for sloped roofs?
Rain chains can be used on flat or low-pitched roofs, but it's important to ensure that the chain is installed correctly to prevent water pooling on your roof.
Will a rain chain rust or corrode over time?
Our copper and brass rain chains will naturally patina over time, which can add to their charm and beauty.
What types of maintenance is required for a rain chain, and how often do I need to clean it?
Rain chains require minimal maintenance, but keeping them clean and the gutters free of debris is important to prevent clogs.
