Roof drainage, anyone?

Adjacent house to a building I was inspection. The downspout drained about 5 feet above grade and there were signs of erosion of the masonry block foundation of the house.

Can I get a “Duh”? :shock:



There is one in downtown where the downspout stops about 10’ about the sidewallk :shock::shock::shock::mrgreen:

DUHHHHHH!! :roll: Hey Will, maybe you could sell them a downspout “Stretcher” !!:wink:

I get emails all the time about stretching my downspout, must be big business.


Geeze Will, the poor guy said the 90 does not fit the other direction. ha. ha.

Marcel :slight_smile: :wink:

That reminds me… There is a home near where I keep my horse that has a downspout that terminates just above the Electrical Meter.

Matt, are they trying to ice out the meter so it will stop spinning? ha. ha.

That is funny.

Marcel :slight_smile: :smiley:

PLEASE!!! Get me a picture of that, would you?

Well I gave him a greenie in the hopes of a picture. So I should get one first … if he is willing to share. :mrgreen:

What do you think of that?

OH, that is not “right on top” of the meter. It has an elbow.

You are way too picky :mrgreen:

(PLEASE NOTE: The above is sarcasm and a joke.)

The first time I saw it I was driving by. Didnt see the elbow before. but I think I would still make note of it.


There’s enough rust on that lower box to justify a note in the report. “Clean gutters fall and spring” is always in there. “Reposition downspout above the electrical meters” doesn’t sound too scary, …does it? :stuck_out_tongue:

“…ready for hydroelectric cogeneration.”

Matt, I think, I would call it out too, just judging from the looks of the Main Dissconnect below.

If the downspout 90 is protectecting the meter, well I think the runoff of the roof above have contributed to the problem too. ha. ha. :wink:
