You could at least price out the right thing. Like I said, I only used the channel to redirect, not catch all of it. If you were willing to pay for concrete, you might be find the gutters equal. The expensive part is having it done. I am just too much of a gardener to embrace too much hardscaping. ...

Depending on the pitch of your roof AND the amount of rain you typically receive, I think you'll be pressing your luck with something smaller than a 3" channel. There's a reason most gutters are 5-6." no doubt. It can get heavy. Just want to see if it redirects it. I can't stand the look ...

I once used the bottom channel that is used for steel stud work (the vertical ones are full of holes). In that case I did not need to have downspouts, I was just redirecting. If you are willing and able you can find a sheet metal place to bend the gutter Channels and make up the downspout offsets. ...

What you need are rain gutters, they direct water away. Of course on a modern house one would need to have "box" style ones made by a sheet metal guy. . Do a Google image search on box gutters to get an idea of what I'm talking about. Most gutter & sheet metal guys are going to consid...

So a strange question about "dirty raindrop bounce"

I honestly don't know how to word it except that. My flat roof facia has always had the drip guard properly in place. But even so, water still drips down below. And not one place around the perimeter of my house is there a welcoming spot for the rain to not bounce an abundant amount of dirt onto my ...
