Rain chains are not only functional but also add a touch of beauty to your home's exterior. They efficiently guide rainwater from your gutter down to the ground while creating a soothing visual and auditory experience.
Simply use a tape measure to measure the width of the bottom of your gutter as shown in the diagram. If the gutter is between 2 ¾ - 4 ¾ inches you can use a standard installation kit. If it is over 4 ¾ inches, we suggest using a large Installation kit! To help guide rainwater onto your rain chain from this larger opening, a Link Chain Reducer is a great option.
Make sure to be safe when measuring and installing your rain chain, a ladder is a great tool but be sure it is secured when climbing it and don’t be afraid to have someone help by holding the ladders base.
To measure half round gutters simply measure the top of the gutter from end to end. These installation kits are designed to fit common half round gutter sizes, it might turn out that your gutter is close but not exact. You will be able to bend these installation kits slightly and use exterior caulk to accommodate approximate sizes. Since this is a larger opening just like the standard Large Installation Kit, a Link Chain Reducer is a great tool to help guide rainwater onto your rain chain. Remember to be safe when using a ladder!
Measuring for a rain chain installation kit is a crucial step to ensure that your rain chain not only functions properly but also enhance the aesthetic appeal of your home. Rain chains not only divert rainwater effectively but also provide a delightful experience for both your eyes and ears as they guide water from your rooftop to the ground below.
