Are you a bit of a decorator? Do you like to move the furniture around, hang new paintings on the walls and switch things up from time to time? Then you might be up for the challenge of redesigning your house with rainwater goods. Not only are rainwater goods necessary, but they can also add some colour and interesting shapes to the exterior of your home, changing the feel and experience of the family home in subtle ways. If you need to replace faulty rainwater goods or you want to upgrade to a newer design, there are a few things to consider first.
How to Choose Rainwater Goods
If you’ve just built a house, then it might be your first time really paying attention to rainwater goods. So why do you need rainwater goods? Rainwater needs to be properly disposed of and leave the foundation of your house dry as a bone, otherwise you risk ruining its foundation and encouraging the growth of mould too. Rainwater goods help keep your house nice and dry while keeping your roof and gutter clear of debris. When choosing rainwater goods, you need to know the measurements of your house and understand the climate you live in.
But it’s not all just science and math. You get to go shopping too! There are lots of different types of rainwater goods to think about, including continuous spouting, fascia, downpipes, rainwater heads and gutter guards. At Three65 Spouting all our products are made on-site and made to measure, so you can ensure you’ve got a complete set instead of mismatched looking rainwater goods.
