Your Options For Rain Catch Systems For Your Roof

Nora Mcdonalid

Rainwater collection is increasing around the country. Homeowners are looking for ways to add a rainwater collection system to their existing roofs. There are several reasons you may want a rainwater catch. You may want to help reduce erosion around a certain point of your gutter runoff. You may also be reusing the water for gardening or as a resource for your water needs. Regardless of the reason, you will need a roofing contractor for help.

Here are some of the rainwater systems your roofing contractor can install and what to know about each one.

Rain Barrel Collections 

The most common method for rainwater collection is a rain barrel gutter runoff. The rain barrel is connected directly to your current gutter system. Your roofing contractor will redirect the rainwater runoff into the barrel using gutter redirection attachments. They will have various connectors you can choose from for your rain barrel. Many of these connectors are designed to ensure there is no water loss. These connectors also help reduce the chance of contamination of the water entering the barrel.

Roof-To-Ground System

You may want to collect as much rainwater as possible over time. For this goal, you may want to consider a roof-to-ground system. This type of system collects rain from the roof and brings it down toward a ground system that houses several rainwater collection devices. This concept is ideal if you are using the water in several parts of a small homestead or larger homesteading design. The water is collected into multiple barrels and can be filtered out to different parts of your home and property. 

Roofing Slope

If you have a flat roof design, you may be concerned about how you can collect rainwater without waste. One option a roofing contractor can offer you is a roofing slope. This slope can be a sloped cover that moves over your roof during a storm. It can also be a  series of permanent slopes placed on top of your roof to collect the water and filter it into a barrel or system. 

These are just a few of the rain catch systems your roofing contractor can install for you. When you are ready to move forward with your plans for a rainwater system installation, contact your roofing contractor. They will assess your roof and determine the best possible options for collecting rainwater runoff without disturbing your current roof.
