Vic Delor’s clients has a summer place on rainy Orcas Island, Washington. The home is equipped with copper flashing and copper rain gutters.
But instead of downspouts, the owners prefer heavy galvanized chain to transport the water to the ground. “It’s amazing to see water travel down those chains,” Delor says. “Unreal!”
Delor’s job is to paint the chains with epoxy to match the copper and then age them “with a couple of bucket dips.”
